Belfry 48 Tates Creek 12

By newarkcatholicfan - Tates Creek came to Belfry having to know how good everyone said the Pirates could be. Well if they had any doubt about this they found out in just a little over a minute just how good Belfry was. The Pirates forced a Commodores punt after three offensive plays, and on the return the Pirates got a 73-yard touchdown by, #1- Cameron Catron, with 10:32 left on the clock. The point after kick by #26 Austin Woolum made it a,7-0 game. For all intents and purposes this game was over. On the ensuing kickoff #12 Langston Love fielded the kick and was flipped upside down by #20 Chase Dove, on a... Read More →

Bluegrasspreps' Eastern Kentucky Power Rankings 8-28

By ATLCat - 1. Belfry Pirates (3A, 1-0)- The Pirates looked the part of the #1 team by ambushing 6A Tates Creek. This week the Pirates will take on a much improved Harlan County squad. 2. Johnson Central Golden Eagles (4A, 1-0)- It was a proud week for EKY teams and none had a more symbolic win than Johnson Central taking out the #2 team from the Mountain State. The Eagles return to Bluegrass action with a solid Lexington Catholic team. 3. Corbin Redhounds (3A, 2-0)- Corbin rose to the challenge against fellow 3A Powerhouse Central and held on to a narrow win. Clay County is next and the starters... Read More →

3A Notebook: Corbin Fends off Central, Strengthens Hold on #2 Ranking

By gchs_uk9 - Redhounds send Jackets over the edge in Cumberland Falls Pigskin Classic In a rematch of 2014's classic regional final, Corbin scored on its first two possessions of the game and again in the final minute to claim the biggest win for a 3A school to date in 2016. Corbin quarterback Cameron Sizemore hit AJ Moore with a 19-yard touchdown pass to open the scoring and a second touchdown pass from Sizemore to Moore, this time on 4th Down, gave Corbin (2-0) a 14-0 lead with three minutes to play in the first quarter. Central's strong running game hit pay dirt twice in the second quarter... Read More →

East Ridge 38 Phelps 18

By newarkcatholicfan - Not often do I get to see one player dominate a game the way I did in this one. Don't get me wrong, I understand without the great play of the offensive line, the 393 yards, 5 touchdowns that #3 Brodey Johnson ran for, would not have taken place. But it was fun from this fan's eyes to watch the young man do his thing on the field. Phelps was forced into a punting situation with 9:27 left in the opening frame, but a horrible snap led to the punter trying to complete a pass that was incomplete. This would set the stage for how most of the rest of the day would go for the Hornets. Just... Read More →

Louisville Power Rankings - Sponsored by Get in the game with Game On WBKI Sat @ 8p

By Bert - Thanks to our Sponsor WBKI TV Louisville The CW. Get in the game with Game On WBKI Saturdays @ 8p. Tv station: WBKI TV Twitter: @ItsGame_On 1. Trinity – It took three and a half quarters but then the Trinity offense got going. I think once Trinity got that first TD, most watching the game felt very, very good about Trinity’s chances. While not a stellar performance like last year, Trinity will remain number one. Next week Trinity will face a stronger Tennessee opponent in Brentwood Academy this time at home. This game will give some indication as to whether this Trinity team is as... Read More →

Class 4A Notebook (8/22): Top Ten Takes A Hit

By DragonFire - The BGP Preseason 4A top ten took a pretty sizable hit in the opening week when looking at the surface. Nine teams were in action, and only three of those won. Of those that won, two of them were at a significant advantage over their opponents, with #1 South Warren obliterating 2A Monroe County by a 56-14 score, and #5 Franklin-Simpson whitewashing Portland (TN) by a 46-0 margin. Neither was a surprise to be a blowout, although it was slightly notable that Monroe County notched a first quarter score against the new South Warren defense. But it was the Spartan offense that rolled, as Ryder... Read More →

Bluegrasspreps' Football Rankings (8/22)

By Ram - With the excitement of Week 0 and the anticipation of a new season upon us, we were not left disappointed by an exciting slate of early season games. Though it is hard to project a State Champion based off such an early season result, some of the usual suspects such as Trinity, Bowling Green, Mayfield, and South Warren all set the tone with impressive victories. As we turn toward Week 1 another slate of Bowl Games and Cross-Class battles will once again highlight the festivities, but we will also see some Intra-Class matchups specifically featuring some of the best 1A and 3A, and 5A teams. ...

1A Notebook - As Predicted

By Voice of Reason - As Predicted The first week of games in 1A made the BGP preseason rankings look good. All the top 10 ranked teams won their openers except number 10 Campbellsville. Even with some of those taking on schools in higher classes, the ranked 1A teams proved they are worthy. Pikeville opened the defense of their title in impressive fashion with a 47-14 win over 2A Prestonsburg. Second ranked Russellville was not to be outdone. The western Kentucky Panthers rolled over 3A Trigg County with a 41-0 shutout. These two schools came out in their openers and proved they are at the top of the heap... Read More →

3A Notebook - Mixed Bag of Results in Week 0

By gchs_uk9 - Two of Three, With a Wait and See Two of the top three teams in Bluegrasspreps' Class 3A preseason rankings romped to commanding victories in their season openers, while another has to wait a week before taking the field. Corbin, ranked second in the preseason, dominated county rival Whitley County, 42-6. The Redhounds, while small, boast what should be one of the best offenses in the class and Friday was no different. Preseason #3 Lexington Catholic also had little trouble disposing of their debut opponent, taking care of Boone County at home by a 41-18 count. The Knights, always... Read More →

North Hardin 21 Boyle County 20 OT

By newarkcatholicfan - A extremely young Boyle County gave a rock solid North Hardin team all they wanted and then some, before falling by a single point in overtime. The first quarter was unmistakably a defensive war, with both teams taking turns stopping the other. Brock Carroll,the 5-9,175 pound linebacker for the Trojans would keep the defensive battle going, when he stopped Trintin Ashburn for a short loss, at the 9:23 mark of the quarter. The biggest offensive play in the opening quarter took place at the 8:54 mark, when Sam Tiller found Reese Smith wide open for a long gain all the way to the Trojans... Read More →

Class 5A Notebook (8/21/16)

By JDEaston - What a great feeling it is for high school football to be back! The opening week in class 5A didn’t really hold any surprises as the teams that were expected to win did. The only loss from the top 10 was Covington Catholic’s 31-13 loss to 6A #8 Ryle, which was expected by most. Outside of the top 10, Fairdale was held scoreless to DeSales, losing 30-0. However there are some exciting games coming up this week that should tell us more about where some teams stand. Continue reading and you will hear more about those games and the opening week’s results. Bowling Green opened the season as... Read More →
