Neither team adjusted to the weather early as it was a downpour most of 3 quarters. Owensboro took over at the Christian Co. 20 yard line after the Colonels started with a 3 and out and the snap rolled to the punter. An off sides penalty and 15 yards later the Red Devils lead 6 to nothing to start the game. It stayed this way for awhile before County put a drive together later in 1st quarter to tie the game. The OHS ground attack grounded it out over the next 2 quarters carrying most of the momentum. They grabbed their 3rd and final score of regulation on the 1st play of the 4th quarter to push the lead to 18-6. The Colonels offense got it going when it had to in crunch time on the shoulders of Keyron Catlett who had a receiving TD and two rushing TDs (including an 80 yard scamper that tied the game). Both teams had opportunities to finish the game in regulation but turnovers and penalties derailed those plans. I believe Both teams finished with 3 turnovers. Owensboro had several more opportunities to score but couldn't convert. The two teams exchanged field goals in the 1st over time. The Colonels connected first in the 2nd overtime with another field goal but Landon Board rushed in from 10 yards out on the first play of OHS' possession and it was in the books.

-This was a great game by two very good teams in 5A.
-Owensboro's bye week was very beneficial to them as they have gotten back to more of their ground option attack. Which started the weeks prior to the break.
-OHS is much improved since their game against OCHS.
-Christian Co. missed their leading rusher & scorer in this game (Trequan Haskins-Taylor). Although, Keyron Catlett was effective running the ball it limited his receiving touches.
-Both teams have tons of heart and fight in them.
-5A Region 1 is loaded.
