2A Game of the Week: #7 Newport Central Catholic vs. #11 Lloyd

By DevilMayCare - Hurdle, barrier, obstacle, obstruction, impediment. Those are all terms that the Lloyd Juggernauts might use to describe the Thoroughbreds of Newport Central Catholic over the years. There's probably a few other choice words they might use to describe the 'Breds, but they're likely not fit to print. The last time that the Juggs defeated NewCath, ‘Good Vibrations’ by Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch was the #1 song on the Billboard music charts. Disney's animated 'Beauty and the Beast’ and ‘Terminator 2: Judgement Day’ were duking it out for box office supremacy. In other words, it was a long... Read More →

1A Game of the Week: 1A #3 Hazard at 1A #4 Paintsville

By Bac2369 - When thinking about this week's 1A Game of the Week, one word comes to mind, and that word is redemption. Redemption is the act of making up for. Paintsville is looking for redemption after the way last season ended, while Hazard is looking to show that they're still the top (Bull)dog in the eastern half of 1A. These two teams haven't met many times over the past 10 years. This years game will only be the fourth meeting since 2006. They played twice that year, back in the four class era. Hazard won both matchups by scores of 21-8 and 27-21 (in overtime). These teams met last year in the... Read More →

Louisville Power Rankings Oct 5, 2017

By Bert - 1. Trinity (7-0) – Trinity continues its dominance by shutting out the number 2 team in the state, St. X 28-0. Next week's game versus Eastern could get ugly quick. 2. St. Xavier (5-1) – X will stay at number 2 despite the loss. At this point, no one in Louisville 6A would give Trinity a much better game. X versus H will determine if X stays at number 2. Next week is another rival in Manual which has struggled with St. X over the past few decades. 3. Male (6-1) – Great win for Male over a strong PRP. Next week is Bryan Station. 4. Pleasure Ridge Park (5-2) – While PRP has... Read More →

5A Notebook: (10/5): Can the Colonels complete the sweep?

By JDEaston - In general the top tier Class 5A teams had a great week with all but one team in the top ten getting a win or an open week to rest up for the final stretch of the regular season. Owensboro was the only top ten team to lose last week and their loss was to a very good Christian County team. Owensboro however has been in a free fall since the loss to Bowling Green a few weeks ago. The Red Devils are clinging on to their top ten ranking by the skin of their teeth and this week versus Marshall County is a must win. Covington Catholic has played another tough schedule this season and are coming... Read More →

1A Notebook 10/3 - Districts

By Voice of Reason - Teams are into district play now. Time to look at how things are expected to play out. Before we go there, let's do a quick review of last week's results. 1. Beechwood lost to 6A #6 Simon Kenton 14-22 - It was a valiant effort by the Tigers. They had two touchdowns called back by penalty and had a run into the end zone from the one yard line ruled a fumble. The Pioneers made the plays they needed to win and the Tigers came up short. 2. Kentucky Country Day had the week off. 3. Hazard beat #9 Pikeville 38-26 - This was a big win for Hazard. The Bulldogs win gives them the upper hand... Read More →

Class 4A Notebook (10/3): A BANNER Game

By DragonFire - No game had more hype and more implications last week than #5 Rockcastle County at #2 Wayne County. As mentioned last week, the home team had won the last three meetings between these two teams, including a crucial 41-34 OT decision taken down by Rockcastle County a season ago. Wayne County simply wanted to defend their homefield and get a big win while, Rockcastle County entered licking their wounds from a 12-6 loss to Somerset the week before, and looking to get their offense back on track. It was the ground and pound of Rockcastle County against the aerial attack of Wayne County. The... Read More →

Lexington/Central KY Power Rankings 10-2-17

By All State Baseball - 1.6A: Scott County (5-2): The Cardinals continue dominating their opponents, this time it was Henry Clay’s turn at defeat as Scott County blew by the Blue Devils 57-28. The Cardinals had yet another 400+ total yardage game as they piled up 431 total yards of offense against Bryan Station. At this rate, no one in the state of KY might not be able to stop the high powered offense of Scott County. 2.2A: Lexington Christian (7-0): LCA’s winning streak continues up to 7 straight games. The Eagles defeated the Midldlebsoro Yellow Jackets 76-28 on Friday. Not only do they continue to win but... Read More →

By thsrocks - 6A Notebook 10/2: Two unbeatens remain #1 Trinity and #7 Simon Kenton are the only two undefeated in the Commonwealth’s largest football class. In 6A Poll threads for ranked teams last week, the BluegrassPreps voters were a perfect 5 for 5.

BluegrassPreps Football Rankings (10/2)

By Ram - Class 1A Beechwood battled valiantly against a ranked Class 6A Simon Kenton, but the Tigers eventually fell. Despite the defeat the Tigers remain at the top of the rankings heading into a showdown with District foe Bellevue. Hazard got a little more than many expected from rival Pikeville but the Bulldogs came away with the huge District win, and look to essentially clinch the Title this week against upstart Phelps. Kentucky Country Day will have their own big clash as they travel to Louisville Holy Cross. The only undefeated team left in Class 1A is Ludlow, and the Panthers hope to keep... Read More →

Western Kentucky Power Ranking - 10/1/17

By Purple88 - BluegrassPreps 2017 Western Kentucky Power Rankings – Week 6 Edition Concerning the top story line for this week, Fall and Fall Breaks are upon us and for many of the top teams the BYE week is here. Rest and recuperation are the most prescribed mandates for most teams and yourself. Get out and enjoy this time of year! It is my favorite – sweatshirt and shorts!!! While players are headed to the couch, what about the coaching staffs? I would say the better coaching staffs take this time to relax a bit, but carry around film on the best team they have yet to play this season. As... Read More →

3A Notebook: Parlor Games

By gchs_uk9 - There is a parlor game in which one is presented with three choices and must make a decision. While tawdry, the game can provide cheap humor and tough choices for male and female contestants. We're not going into full detail in this week's 3A Notebook, but since we have reached the final month of the regular season, we are going to look at each district and make a decision about three teams. One team is who we like long-term, another is who can have some success short-term, and last is who we just don't see it happening for this year. Note: Records are current; rankings are from...

1A Game of the Week: 1A #2 Kentucky Country Day at 1A #7 Louisville Holy Cross

By Bac2369 - We have finally made it to District play. Now it's time to set yourself up for a good playoff run by getting the 1 seed and ensuring a couple of home playoff games. It has been a very exciting and wild season so far, to say the least. A few surprise teams have made big strides from last season and come out of the wood work to climb into the BGP Class 1A Top 10. The 1A Game of the Week features two teams who SHOULD be battling it out for the top seed in District 3. The winner could potentially lock up home field advantage during the playoffs through the semi-finals as long as they keep... Read More →

2A Game of the Week: #2 DeSales at #5 Christian Academy-Louisville

By DevilMayCare - With all due respect to everything that's transpired up to this point... now it starts to get real. Everything we've seen so far has been (admittedly good) salads and side dishes. Now we get to sink our teeth into the real meat of the regular season, and football fans are predominantly carnivores. Last week, the Louisville big school privates took center stage. This week, it's the little guys’ turn to settle the pecking order, at least temporarily. Of course, little is relative. The only thing small about DeSales and Christian Academy-Louisville is their classification. The talent and... Read More →

It's Separation Time in Class 2A

By ATLCat - Winning Ugly Looks Oh So Good for Somerset; Danville Up Next Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and right now for Somerset fans they may be witnessing a work of art while other fans may be seeing a less than desirable score. Somerset relied on a stout defense and just enough Offense to outlast 1A Raceland 16-13 on the road to improve to 5-2. The recipe that led to victory is becoming a common one for the team with the gold-plated helmets. Somerset is averaging an underwhelming 13 points per game over their last six results, yet their Defense has rose to the occasion allowing less... Read More →
