    6A George Rogers Clarke at 6A Boone County Prediction

    The game is at Boone County beginning at 7:30 pm on Friday.

    George Rogers Clark boasts a 3-2 record, having only lost to Anderson County and Montgomery County. GRC returns a top RB in Nitavius Thomas, who has over 700 yards on the year. Azariah Israel (love the Biblical names) added another 225 yards to the teams rushing totals. Between running and passing, the Cardinals average over 350 yards per game on offense. Can Boone slow them down?

    Boone County enters the game with a 2-3 record with wins over Holmes H.S. and Dixie Heights. They are coming off their win over the Red Colonels last Friday night. In that contest, Boone put up 314 rushing yards. Senior FB/MLB, Shutt had 187 yrds in 22 carries and 4 TDs. Sophomore RB, Cauvey Vastine, contributed 92 yards on 15 carries. All of that to say that Boone’s best hope for victory against GRC will depend on their ability to score early and often on the ground. In addition, Boone will have to stop the GRC ground game. Nitavius Thomas and Azariah Israel account for a lot of offense for GRC.

    Since there is no common opponent between these two teams we will have to get a bit creative (and go out on a limb). GRC carries a Litkenhous rating of 90.8 but lost to Montgomery County which has a Lit Ranking of 84.9. Can Boone, with a Lit Ranking of 80.4, overcome this differential with GRC and produce a win on Friday?

    GRC won this contest last year in Winchester, 59-7.

    What are your thoughts on this game and how each opponent may win? Also, please vote in the poll.

    How did Montgomery County beat GRC? Were they supposed to beat GRC? If so, why the Lit Rankings that have GRC rated 6 points above MoCo?

    I am trying to gain insight into how good GRC is and how to beat them.

    LIT Ratings use average of performance against all opponents, which can overshadow 1 game, so that is how GRC can be ahead of Montgomery County.

    So what did MoCo do to win? Do they have a stellar defense that stopped the ground game and made GRC to throw with no effect, or do they have a high-powered offense that managed to outscore GRC? They must have done something well to earn an outcome that contradicts what many would have though the outcome should be.

    It looks like MoCo matched them in the run game: Mo Co 269 to 232 for GRC. They both scored 4 TDs and Xpts. MoCo's had 3 rushing TDs and 1 passing. GRC had all 4 on the ground by Thomas. Thomas had 213 yards. MoCo's Korossy had 161 yrds and 1 TD while Wheaton added 79 yards. MoCo completed only 3 passes but one was for a TD.

    MoCo added a field goal to make the difference in the score. So, it does not appear that MoCo's defense did anything to stop Thomas but the offense did just enough to get the win.

    That's the story according to the stats sheet, but there is always more to the story.

    The Poll is turning into a horse race. GRC and BC are running neck-and-neck.

    Boone needs a big game from the defense and a big game from an offensive player, and no penalties and no turnovers and stops on special teams.
