Class 2A Playoff Preview

By Ram - Region I- District 1 vs. District 2 (Winner Will Host Semi's) Perhaps the biggest compliment you could pay Mayfield during the 2017 season is they were essentially the same team we have been accustomed to seeing. For many teams this would be a death sentence toward their potential playoff hopes, but for the Cardinals it is more of a testament that they can be expected to be right in the thick of the Championship Race. The Cardinals will open their push for another ring with one of Kentucky’s most pleasant surprises, Todd County Central. The Rebels will lose to Mayfield, but still deserve... Read More →

Class 3A Playoff Preview

By Ram - REGION I For the last couple years this region has been almost entirely the domain of Elizabethtown and Caldwell County. This year has continued to see the Panthers and Tigers at the top, but a pair of challengers has emerged in Larue County and Paducah Tilghman, meaning competitive games could arrive earlier in the bracket than in years before. Caldwell County (8-2) had won eight straight before being routed by Mayfield in the season finale. Expect the Tigers to rebound with little trouble against Hart County (2-8). The better matchup pits Union County (8-2) at Larue County (9-1).... Read More →

Class 1A Playoff Preview

By Ram - REGION I Since Mayfield move up to 2A, Russellville has been in control of Region 1. This year though, things look very much up in the air. Russellville sits at 6-4 on the year and has no standout wins among those 6 victories. The Panthers should have no problem though in round 1 versus Fort Knox. That should get them a second round game against Campbellsville, who play 0 win Fulton City in round 1. That sets up an interesting second round game. This game has the potential for upset written all over it. These two teams look very similar. It is a very tough call on who to pick here.... Read More →

By Ram - Class 1A With the playoffs starting, the teams in Class 1A had one last opportunity to make a statement or get momentum in their respective season finales. Beechwood made one final statement by crushing 2A Newport Central Catholic and will enter November as the prohibitive favorite. Paintsville, the consensus #2 team, followed suit by hammering 3A Fleming County. Perhaps the hottest team is Paris. The Greyhounds polished off Ludlow, proving they are ready for competition from rival Districts. With numerous teams earning First Round byes, a couple games stand out for this week's slate. Lynn...

Louisville Power Rankings October 25

By Bert - 1. Trinity (10-0) – Trinity hits Ballard pretty hard last week, 49-0. This week is a rematch against Seneca which will probably be very similar to the last time they met up. 2. St. Xavier (8-1) – St. X continues to roll beating Bulter 37-0. This week's game versus always powerful Cincy X will be very difficult for the Tigers. The game is in Louisville so that will give the Tigers a slight edge. 3. Male (8-2) – Male brought home the whiskey barrel beating Manual 27-20. This week H should be favored heavily over Connor. 4. Pleasure Ridge Park (6-3) – Tough loss for the Panthers... Read More →

Class 4A Notebook (10/25): So You Think You Know Who's Winning 4A?

By DragonFire - THAT JUST HAPPENED. That was pretty much my reaction upon seeing that Johnson Central had fallen to Ashland on the road 21-18. For the Golden Eagles it was the first time all year they’d been held below 31 points, and that came in the season opener. They hadn’t scored less than 40 since. Ashland pulled off the feat on the defensive side of the ball with some clutch turnovers in the fourth quarter, recovering two fumbles and the game ending interception on fourth down after the Golden Eagles had driven deep into Tomcat territory but stalled. The second fumble was probably the biggest,... Read More →
