    I stated in a previous thread that I thought this could be a running clock in the 4th quarter. I stand by that. No contest. Covcath wins easy..

    With what everyone is saying about this CC team, it should absolutely be a running clock. But it won't. I'm starting to come around on my prediction after watching some CC film.. Think this will be closer than most think.

    The Beechwood Authority has no connection, past or present, with the Park Hills Mafia or Turner's Angels.

    I covered that, the TCM re-branded themselves as Turner's Angels.

    What I don't buy into is that a larger school should win just because of their numbers. Ryle is not a top 5 team in 6A. They are a top 10 team somewhat by default because class 6A is struggling this year. I think Ryle would have their hands full with a lot of smaller class teams.

    Here are some examples that I think make my point that school size does not mean a school should win:

    2A DeSales defeated 6A #9 Ballard 37-22
    2A DeSales defeated 6A #7 Butler 28-27
    2A Christian Academy Louisville defeated 6A #11 Central Hardin 15-0
    3A Lexington Catholic defeated 6A 2016 runnerup Lafayette 25-0
    2A CAL defeated 6A Eastern (2-2, one of the largest schools in KY) 33-9
    4A Johnson Central defeated 6A Henry Clay 40-28
    3A Lexington Catholic defeated 6A Madison Central (2-2) 34-24
    3A Central defeated 6A #10 Manual 7-0
    3A Belfry defeated 6A Bryan Station 40-19
    2A Mayfield defeated 6A McCracken County 49-27
    2A Newport Central Catholic defeated 6A Cooper 29-7

    Before I leave 6A, let me note Beechwood had no problems defeating 6A top 15 Conner (24-7) in a scrimmage ... I know, just a scrimmage but worth noting.

    Also, there are several other smaller class victories over 6A teams but I will leave it at the ones listed.

    In 5A:

    2A CAL defeated 5A #7 South Oldham 28-14
    3A Central defeated 5A #5 Fern Creek 29-0
    3A Caldwell Co. defeated 5A top 15 Graves County 27-10
    3A Corbin defeated 5A #10 Pulaski County 36-7
    2A Danville defeated 5A #10 Pulaski County 34-13

    1A schools have defeated 3A #1 Corbin, 4A top 15 Greenup County, 5A Harlan County and others. The top 10 in 1A are 20-6 versus larger class schools.

    Bottom line - the smaller schools can play with the bigger schools and win more than their fair share including against ranked teams in larger classes.
    Excellent Post VoR!

    Should be a good game. I think the Blue Colonels pull away in the end by a couple scores. This is the best CovCath team in a very long time imo..

    Naturally I would love to see the Tigers win, but they will be huge under dogs Friday night. This is Cov Cath's year. The Tigers have always stayed in the game with the Colonels, and I think they will do it Friday without a running clock. These big games are great at getting the Tigers ready for playoffs. I just hope and pray for an injury free night.

    Tied ball game going into half. Two touchdowns close. Closest game of the year so far for the Colonels close.
