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 →

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.

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.

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 →
