13 of 15 ranked teams survived first round. Nine of the Top Ten ranked teams earned victories and are moving on to Round Two. The only victim to fall was Ryle. The Raiders’ best player, Jake Chisolm, was hampered immensely with an ankle injury.

The BluegrassPreps voters chose wisely in tabbing 14 of 16 winners in the first round playoff games. Only Henry Clay and Butler were surprise winners.
The season total for winners selected in 6A threads with polls now stands at 76 of 86 for 88.4% accuracy for 2017. There will be threads with polls for all 8 Second Round contests.

Updated Predictions for Round 2:

Trinity 56 vs. Campbell County 0
Ballard 14 vs. Simon Kenton 49

McCracken County 35 vs. Daviess County 14 (rematch)
Central Hardin 21 vs. Henderson County 14

St. Xavier 35 vs. Pleasure Ridge Park 21 (rematch)
Male 28 vs. Butler 14 (rematch)

Scott County 49 vs. Henry Clay 21 (rematch)
Frederick Douglass 35 vs. Tates Creek 21 (rematch)

Five of the eight second round games are rematches of regular season contests.
A repeat winner is expected in each of these games.
