Week Seven


Top Ten

Many of the top teams were off this past week. In the game of the week Bryan Station went to Lafayette. The two teams combined for 120 points with Lafayette coming out on top 65 to 55. Rarely does a team give up 55 points and come off the field victorious but it worked – in this game – for the Generals. What can be gleaned from this game? Probably that Lafayette will have a hard time getting back to Bowling Green if they do not figure out their defense. As a comparison to the 55 the Defenders put on Lafayette, Dupont Manual’s defense has allowed a season TOTAL of only 32 points. Madison Central has allowed only 61. The Walker Wood led Generals can light up the scoreboard for sure. But, as the saying goes, defense wins championships. Coach Shaw and the Generals need to figure this out in the next couple of weeks.

The next solid test of the Generals comes at season end against the rising Tates Creek team. That will provide a good indicator as to the possibility of the Generals getting back to Bowling Green

The Next Ten

Casey County gets a solid win over Bell County by a score of 53 to 14. The 3A Rebels stay undefeated and run their season record to 6 – 0. 1A

Nicholas County continued to roll with a win over Berea. The Bluejackets are now 7-0 on the season and face Paris next in a key district game. remain undefeated.



District Time

All of Kentucky’s high school teams are already in or about to start district play. Though district championships are not as celebrated as they once were with the current playoff format the district standing still determine how the post season seeding works. Here are the districts that include Lexington/Central Kentucky teams.

Class 1A
District 3 – Eminence, Frankfort, Holy Cross (Louisville), Kentucky Country Day
District 5 – Berea, Bishop Brossart, Bracken County, Nicholas County, Paris
Class 2A
District 4 – Christian Academy-Louisville, DeSales, Shawnee, Washington County
District 7 – Danville, Lexington Christian, Middlesboro, Somerset
Class 3A
District 4 – Boyle County, Garrard County, Lexington Catholic, Western Hills
District 8 – Bell County, Casey County, Corbin, Jackson County
Class 4A
District 4 – Collins, Franklin County, North Oldham, Shelby County, Spencer County
District 5 – East Jessamine, Marion County, Mercer County, Taylor County, West Jessamine
District 7 – Bourbon County, Harrison County, Holmes, Mason County, Scott
Class 5A
District 6 – Anderson County, Madison Southern, Montgomery County, Woodford County
Class 6A
District 7 – Bryan Station, Henry Clay, Paul Laurence Dunbar, Scott County
District 8 – George Rogers Clark, Lafayette, Madison Central, Tates Creek

Highlighted teams are part of the Lexington/Central Kentucky ratings.

With the top 4 teams from each district making the playoffs most teams will make the post season. Unfortunately, some will not. Three districts above have five teams, meaning on team from those three districts will not go to the post season. All the teams from the other districts will move on to the post-season.

In 1A District 5 winless Berea is almost certain to miss the playoffs.

In 4A District 5 it looks like Marion County will miss the post season. The 1 and 6 Knights have two district losses already and have a good East Jessamine and very good Taylor County team coming up.

In 4A District 7 both Bourbon County and Harrison County should be safe to get into the post season. In this district Scott is 1 and 6 on the season and already has 2 district losses.
