Ranking Notes
The ‘upset’ of the week is Henry Clay over Bryan Station. Devon Key was out of the line-up and that definitely hurt the Defenders. Bryan Station has next week off and will play Tates Creek in the first week of the playoffs. It is difficult to gauge the Defenders without Key. They drop but not all the way out.

Madison Southern enters the top 10 with a winning streak in the key district games. I looked closely at Montgomery County again, but Madison Southern seems to be the hot team now.

Lafayette and Scott County eek out wins but each wins their respective districts with undefeated district records. These may well meet for a rematch in four weeks.

The most consistent football seems to come from the schools in Boyle County. The Rebels bounce back to beat Western Hills and Danville gets a relatively easy win over LCA. The two schools are 16 – 2 combined.

Game of the Week
Madison Southern (5A #10) vs Madison Central (6A), October 30, 7:30. Madison Central
An in—county rivalry game to end the regular season. Both teams have had inconsistent seasons but Madison Southern seems to be the hot team coming out of district play. It’s senior night at Madison Central
