    Just got finished looking at Bowling Greens schedule and scores. All I can say is good grief its impressive. Some of those scores looks like they were playing with the pee wee league. They had 8 shut outs, with one of those coming in the playoffs. I noticed they have only given up 3 touchdowns since Sept. 16th. Looks like 6 touchdowns given up all season. And there offense doesn't look all that shabby either. 611 points overall. Total points allowed is 54 thats like a field goal a game. And 13 of those points was to ST Xavier.

    Im not sure where their offense ranks but looks to me like they have the #1 defense and probably the #2 offense in 3A. Very very impressive.

    Now Mrs PH, normally I agree w/ ya but I'd say if heart is the only determining factor in this one, get ready to move back the 2A and 1A games cause your gonna be in for LONG ONE since both teams have great heart.

    I keep expecting someone to stop Lexington Catholic's O but Highlands was the only team to come close and a banged up Burke helped that some. I think this should be a slugfest amongst two great teams. If this is a blowout either way I'd be shocked. Im hoping the Knights can finally do something I've been waiting for Lex Cath to do since I was in the 6th grade.

    Good Luck to both and hope its a great one.

    ....I said they have skill as well.... I don't believe it will be a blowout either...I am pulling for the Purples, of course! I think both sides want this real bad, we will just have to wait and see the outcome!

    Bowling Green's defense is the best unit Lexington Catholic will face this season. I'll be shocked if the Knights score anything approaching 48.

    Bowling Green is much better up front than Lexington Catholic, which will have to big-play the Purples. They will get pressure on Burke ... there may not be a better offensive line in the state than the one belonging to St. Xavier, but the Purples had Curley on the run all night.

    Burke, on the other hand, is vastly better than Curley, both with his arm and feet. Burke's ability to scramble and throw on the run will be critical to Lexington Catholic's success. I think we all know he's capable of doing both.

    Bowling Green will play ball-control, hoping their punishing running game will wear down Lexington Catholic's smallish defense. If the Purples don't become turnover-prone, I think they will be able to do it.

    My pick ... Bowling Green 23, Lexington Catholic 14

    This is one of those predictions that is more guess than science since I've not seen BG. I'm basing it only on what I've read, not seen, about them. If they have a power running game and run it straight up the gut, they'll move the ball and keep it away from Burke and Co. And if their defense is as good as advertised, when he does get it, he'll have his problems. Sorry LexCath, I'd like to see you win since you eliminated us, but

    BG by 10. 24-14.

    I think BG wins a close game, I think the difference will be the strenght of BG's D.

    This is the second-ever meeting between the two schools. Lexington Catholic won 35-0 in the second week of the 1999 season.

    I remember that one, LC dominated it really shutting down BG's power run. Course won't help us much this year.

    Thanks

    Wildcat,

    You've got to be our most distant poster.
    God Bless!

    Thank you wildcat. It doesn't matter how far the Navy sends me from blue grass country, i'll always be a true blue fan, sorry to all you fans out there in the state of KY wearing RED. We forgive you and are still confident that you will turn from the darkside that is U of L and return to the collective.

    Thanks to all the posters on here, for allowing me a small touch of home.

    In my opinion, this should be the best game of the bunch... I'm going to root for/pick Bowling Green in this one. Hopefully I'll be at Papa Johns saturday wo watch this matchup.

    The question is not whethor Bowling Green has a great defense, but whethor their great defense can stop the equally great passing attack of LexCath. I think they can, im not impressed with LexCath's O-Line and still not sold on there defense as a whole. I am sold on a few Defensive players though. Ben Revere is a shutdown corner.
    Can BG score enough cause there certainly not going to shut LC out?

    With all this said BG by 3pts. They will cause enough turnovers with their defensive pressure to keep LC off of the board.

    How can u root against great defense!
