Game Report: Pikeville overcomes Hazard, 62-50

By newarkcatholicfan - Pikeville overcomes Hazard, 62-50. Last night, actually the game ended early Sunday morning the Pikeville Panthers and Hazard Bulldogs hooked up in what would have been deemed an ESPN instant classic had the network been there. This game had so many twist and turns a mathematician would have been needed to keep count. Caleb Holcomb got things started for the Bulldogs defense as he got to Austin Charles for a three yard loss, on a broken play. At the 7:01 mark of the opening quarter it looked like Pikeville was set to get a big gain, but Ben Maynard dropped a pass, on a play that he... Read More →

Inside NKY Football (9/1)

By Walter - After two weeks, every Northern Kentucky team has now played their opening game. Letís take a look at the action: Donít call it a comeback: The Cooper Jaguars fell behind early to Newport Central Catholic but a field goal just before the half to close the deficit to 14-10, was just the start of 24 unanswered points by Coach Randy Borchersí squad. Jags were led by the duo of QB Will Ludwick (17-29 for 204 yards, 3 tdís) and RB Avery Bricking (17 rushes, 125 yards), but it was the play of Cory Fussinger (6 catches, 67 yards, 4 sacks) on both sides of the ball that takes home player of the...

Game Report Hurley, Va. 36 East Ridge 14

By newarkcatholicfan - East Ridge falls to Hurley, Virginia, 36-14. This was one of those games that the score really does not indicate how close these two teams come to be equal in talent. Three events took place in this one that changed the tone of the game and left one team looking like they won easily and the other team saying what if? Things got started in this one with Trey Oliver from Hurley showing off his speed, with an 18-yard run. Mr. Hurley easily looked a step or two faster than anyone else on the field all game long. The run occurred just fifteen second into the game. The East Ridge... Read More →

Game Report Belfry takes down Somerset 37-12

By newarkcatholicfan - The match up between Somerset and Belfry was billed as one of the marquee match ups in the 2013 Pike County Bowl and for the firs half it did more than live up to it. The 2nd half was a domination by the Pirates, who seemed to make the necessary adjustments needed to shut down to shut down Somersets two primary weapons. Just :27 seconds into the game Belfry would flex its muscles on the defensive side of the ball when, Hayden Hatfield got to quarterback, Castle Hatcher for the games first sack. The Pirates defense would force a punt after three plays ran by the Somerset offense,... Read More →

Inside Capital City Football

By CoachBuckett - All three teams opened up in week 0 and 2 of the 3 came away with a victory. Franklin County opened the 2013 football season with a big win over North Bullitt on Friday.

Offensively speaking

By Les - It looks as if the main ingredient for success in Week Zero for most of the Southeastern Six teams was scoring lots of points on offense, and thatís just what Harlan County, Knox Central and Williamsburg did last Friday. The interesting thing is how each three dominated on offense. For example ó Harlan County used its offensive attack to blow out Class 6A Madison Central with ease. The Black Bears totaled 417 yards on offense, as Senior fullback Carson Whitehead rushed for 112 yards while senior tailback Zach Chitwood ran for 80 yards and senior quarterback Scott Bailey added 77 on the...

St. Xavier Insider - Week One

By AvidTiger - Lets begin by saying St. Xavier has that first victory under their belt by beating a senior laden ballard team. Watching the game one would concede that this team isn't "the top team in the state". But with new coaches realistically they're not expected to be in mid season form in the season opener. Game review: Offense and defense both have a ways to go before this team can claim another state title. Defense needs to work on their pass coverages and assignments. Last Friday vs ballard the tigers got torched through the air for 366 yards and two tds. This is cause to worry because that... Read More →

Beechwood Tiger Insider - Week One

By EyeOfTheTiger - The 2013 Beechwood Tigers finally get to play one that counts this Friday. The lifting and off season workouts, 7 on 7ís, two-a-days and scrimmages are over. Friday night all that work needs to be put to use to get win number one on the board. As is their custom, the Tigers played two scrimmages versus playing one and having an in season bye. Scrimmage number one was against the Conner Cougars. That scrimmage was played with a running clock and no live action on kicks. It was a struggle early for the Tigers against the Cougars. Conner controlled the action for a big part of the game. The... Read More →

South-Central Kentucky Football: The Overlooked Gamekiller - Special Teams

By DragonFire - The Overlooked Gamekiller - Special Teams It’s not that offense and defense are unimportant. The performance in those areas is obviously key to a victory or loss on Friday nights. But the red headed stepchild is the special teams, which can easily prop up or ruin performances in the other areas. The latter was on full display in the South-Central Kentucky area on Friday. It started with the opening game of the year in the area and perhaps the entire state, the Warren Central/Madisonville-North Hopkins game at Greenwood. The Dragons entered the game ranked #3 by Read More →

Inside Western Kentucky Football: August 27

By The Scribe - The first week of the high school football season did not disappoint, with a new rivalry formed in the far western part of the region where Paducah Tilghman beat McCracken County 24-23 before an overflow crowd at the new Marquette Stadium (the new McCracken school secured naming rights for all of their sports venues). All the Mustangs have to do is look back at two missed extra points and a touchdown called back for holding in the fourth quarter. Neither team rushed for more than 85 yards in the game, with Tilghman again proving how hard it is to get to the outside against their speed.... Read More →

Beechwood Freshman Preview

By EyeOfTheTiger - A tough act to follow. Last year's Beechwood Tiger freshman team breezed their way to a N. Ky. freshman championship. But each year is a brand new start in the freshman ranks. Last year gives little insight into this one. The first challenge each year in freshman ball in N. Ky. seems to be what teams are playing against who. The 1A schools, except Beechwood, haven't fielded freshman teams for a few years, instead combining freshman and sophomores onto teams and playing a "froshmore" schedule and no JV. Over the past few years, the 2A schools have struggled fielding freshman teams. I... Read More →
