    South Warren/Covington Catholic (5A Championship) Updates

    Covington Catholic (14-0) has been #1 all year, and is currently riding a state best 29 game winning streak. South Warren (14-0) began the season at #3, but ascended to #2 after conquering Bowling Green. Both teams know a thing or two about running clocks, each team having posted numerous mercy rule scores this season. This is the best possible matchup 5A could offer, and it has all the makings of a classic.

    I see the CovCath fans have a big tailgate party kicking in the parking lot.

    Looks like a good time.

    Having some technology issues here today at the game. I'll chime in as I can, but I think 'Ru is going to handle updates.

    Hey everyone, I just talked to @Colonels_Wear_Blue and phone access from the grocery sack may be hit or miss today.

    I am going to spout off like always but I strongly encourage anyone on the site today that is watching the game to please add your thoughts as often as possible.

    I've said it before, but it bears repeating... This is the best possible championship game we could have in 5A. CovCath put to rest any talk of Highlands challenging them in the east, and South Warren dominated the west, including stalwart Bowling Green. This is crystal clear #1 vs. #2.

    Right on @DevilMayCare no one else in 5A even comes close.

    South Warren is in black helmets, white tops and black pants.

    CovCath is in blue helmets, blue tops, and white pants.

    The video broadcast appears to be 4 or 5 minutes behind real time at this point.
