Class 1A

Pikeville continued to flex their muscle against the best 1A has to offer, completing their trifecta of statement wins by punishing Hazard on the road. The last piece to the Eastern Kentucky puzzle falls into place this week when Raceland and Paintsville meet in a blossoming rivalry. Campbellsville survived a scare against a game Bethlehem squad, but still have work to do as Louisville Holy Cross is more than equipped to pull off the upset. Williamsburg finds themselves in a similar position, a week after beating Pineville they cannot let their guard down against Lynn Camp.

Class 2A

Perhaps the most anticipated game in the entire state was Somerset and LCA and the game lived up to the hype in an instant classic that put the State on notice that both teams are firmly in the running for a 2A Title. The Eagles prevailed on a two point conversion but cannot let off against Danville. Beechwood made their own statement by handling Lloyd Memorial and now must polish off their District schedule with Newport. Murray came up short in a good ole fashioned shootout against Caldwell County, the Tigers must find some answers or else they may be in trouble against Mayfield.

1. Lexington Christian Academy vs. Danville
2. Somerset vs. Washington County
3. Mayfield vs. #7 Murray
4. Beechwood vs. #10 Newport
5. Owensboro Catholic vs. Butler County
6. Caldwell County -- OPEN

8. Breathitt County vs. Leslie County
9. Lloyd Memorial vs. Covington Holy Cross
10. Newport at #4 Beechwood

Class 3A

Ashland rebounded from a 14-0 deficit to secure a huge win against rival Russell and need only defeat a floundering Greenup County squad to finish their District schedule undefeated. Russell needs to rebound against the vastly improved East Carter squad. The eyes of Class 3A will be in Central Kentucky. Mercer County will look to take down both of the private school powers from Louisville, while Elizabethtown and Bardstown have a highly anticipated showdown of their own.

1. DeSales at #5 Mercer County
2. Belfry at Pike County Central
3. Ashland vs. Greenup County
4. Bell County at Estill County
5. Mercer County vs. #1 DeSales
6. Elizabethtown vs. #9 Bardstown
7. Russell vs. East Carter
8. Christian Academy of Louisville at Western Hills
9. Bardstown at #6 Elizabethtown
10. Paducah Tilghman at Webster County

Class 4A

It was a pretty light week in Class 4A after the roller coaster season that had preceded it. No Top 10 team suffered a loss, in fact only Corbin's scare against Lincoln County was the only game decided by less than two touchdowns. The Rehounds were not happy with their performance and will certainly need to iron out the wrinkles against a lethal Wayne County offense. Franklin County remains unblemished but will get their stiffest challenge against Central in what should be a great game. Staying within the District, the consolation prize will come down to Waggener and Shelby County in another excellent battle.

1. Boyle County vs. Bourbon County
2. Johnson Central at Letcher County Central
3. Franklin County at #10 Central
4. Lexington Catholic vs. Anderson County
5. Corbin vs. #6 Wayne County
6. Wayne County at #5 Corbin
7. Madisonville-North Hopkins -- OPEN
8. Hopkinsville at Hopkins County Central
9. Logan County vs. Calloway County
10. Central vs. #3 Franklin County

Class 5A

Covington Catholic had the difficult task of taking on a hungry rival in Highlands one week after their emotional upset. The Colonels survived a game closer than most expected, and will need to improve their output against a solid Conner squad. The Bluebirds from Fort Thomas can't let their loss haunt them as Cooper reflects who will be the 3rd seed or the 4th seed. Pulaski County has one last order of business before wrapping up another District Title, beat their rivals from Southwestern.

1. Covington Catholic at #8 Conner
2. Frederick Douglass at Montgomery County
3. Scott County vs. 6A #8 Ballard
4. Bowling Green at Greenwood
5. South Warren at Christian County
6. South Oldham -- OPEN
7. Pulaski County vs. Southwestern
8. Conner vs. #1 Covington Catholic
9. Owensboro vs. Grayson County
10. Highlands at Cooper

Class 6A

If you don't know where Cecilia, Kentucky is you may want to find out by this Friday. This will be ground zero for a huge showdown for Hardin County bragging rights as Central Hardin hosts North Hardin is a battle of undefeated teams. Manual has exceed expectations and need to polish off talented Butler to wrap up their top seed and all the momentum needed for a November push. Henderson County suffered a surprising upset but can still play spoiler against McCracken County.

2. Trinity vs. Eastern
3. North Hardin at #6 Central Hardin
