The Swami's Class 2A Picks (9/6)
1. Christian Academy- Louisville vs. 3A Elizabethtown
Undefeateds collide, class pride firmly at stake.
Etown carries pride and have winning streaks to break.
The Centurions D has been all class, hard to move down the field.
With Etownís veteran skill, a few points they are sure to yield.
In the end one thing remains which always gives CAL a shot,
They have Milton Wright and Etown simply does not.
2. Danville at 5A Pulaski County
A road trip to the South, Danville still without a loss.
Itís the captain of the vessel versuse. the castaway which the Captain sent off.
Pulaski is hurting for a win, size and skill to do the trick.
Danville came up with some mojo on a fateful kick.
This game will be close, please make no mistake.
The Ads get the hard fought win on a big play VanCleave will break.
4. Mayfield vs. 6A McCracken County
In yearís past this game would have quite the attention,
Yet McCracken seems to be regressing from the programís early ascension.
The Mustangs are a little down in most peopleís eyes,
Mayfield has answered questions and have a Title set as their prize.
Despite all the Mustangsí numbers, Mayfield is the better team.
The Cardinals Offense continues to roll as they score twice down the seam.
5. Lexington Christian Academy vs. 3A Lexington Catholic
Fayette private schools unite! A rivalry long due.
Both coming in on big wins, both with a Top 5 crew.
The Eagles will score points, but so will the Knights
Logan Nieves will need to play well for LCA to soar to new heights.
The game comes down to the wire, but Catholic stands alone.
LCA simply doesnít have an answer for Mr. Jones.
PREDICTION: LEXINGTON CATHOLIC
6. Glasgow at 4A Allen County-Scottsville
An unexpected clash of teams yet to taste a defeat,
Expect a back and forth clash you wish to put on repeat.
The Patriots are surprising and poised to make some noise,
Coach Garmon will need to gameplan hard and also motivate his boys.
After leading throughout, Glasgow canít hold on anymore
Allen County nips them by only a score.
PREDICTION: ALLEN COUNTY-SCOTTSVILLE
7. Newport Central Catholic vs. 3A Belfry
The Swami took heat for always picking against NCC,
But losses are common on their schedule, bigger schools are the key.
The trend continues with the team who has won 3A the last four times,
Belfry isnít quite the buzzsaw of last year, but their running game still shines.
A much closer outcome, no running clock at all.
Yet despite their best efforts, to 2-2 NewCath will fall.
8. Owensboro Catholic at South Spencer, IN
Crossing to the Hoosier State typically is not good for the Aces,
South Spencer though is a step down, OCath should cover their bases.
Vonn Williams steps up and takes a few to pay dirt,
The Defense rallies and survives a brief scoring spurt.
Edgeís boys need some confidence, they are battered and all claim a bruise.
This week should give them a boost, I donít see anyway they lose.
PREDICTION: OWENSBORO CATHOLIC
9. Walton-Verona vs. Covington Holy Cross
The Indians were the nemesis in 2016 as they beat W-V twice,
The final of the two was a close loss which sealed their ultimate demise.
The Bearcats will be focused with revenge on the task they are faciní,
Expect a big night from that star named Mason.
This sure ainít last year, here comes a clock that doesnít stop.
A blowout for the Bearcats, they come out on top.
10. Somerset at 1A Hazard
A small class showdown, the best game in the East,
Here comes Corey Smith, this RB is a beast.
The Bunnies nearly shocked the State, but they fell short in the mud.
The D is sure to show up, but will their Offense lay a dud?
With a strong running game, it comes down to a 4th and Short that they go for it,
They get the late lead and ice it thanks to Cornett.
Lloyd Memorial at 4A Marion County
With DeSales on a Bye, the Swami will give a bonus selection.
The next team on the bubble is Lloyd, they head in the right direction.
Crossing the Parkway, to CKY we head.
Lebanon will be a favorable host, Lloyd paints the town red.
Marion will be little resistance to the Juggs, a comfortable win in store.
The Juggs keep their momentum winning by at least 4 scores.
PREDICTION: Lloyd Memorial
