Class 2A Notebook (Week 1)

Recommended Posts

The resounding theme of Week 0 was for 2A teams to step out of class for Non-District openers against quality opposition. A total of six of the 2A Top 15 started their season with a loss as a result.

 

Tests Passed

As expected both #1 Mayfield and #2 DeSales stepped up in class and rolled in dominating fashion. Danville, Leslie County, Somerset, and Butler County also followed suit by playing schools of larger enrollment and vanquishing their opposition in very convincing fashion.

 

Tests Failed

It was not as kind of a season opener though for several other schools looking to stretch their legs against a larger foe. Four of the Top 10 teams took losses against larger classification teams including #3 NewCath, #4 CAL, #6 Shelby Valley, and #9 Monroe County.

 

NewCath and CAL equated themselves well despite the losses. The Breds fell by a single point to Scott and CAL hung with a Top 10 6A Simon Kenton for Three Quarters before seeing the lead expand down the stretch.

 

Shelby Valley and Monroe County though found their competition a bit too superior. Shelby Valley was ambushed by the speed and conditioning of 4A Franklin County and compounded their conundrum by losing their two top rushers early in the game, one by injury and the other by ejection. Monroe County simply was outclassed by arguably the best team in the state not named Male or Trinity.

 

 

No Shaking the Juggs

We highlighted the top game featuring two 2A teams and it lived up to it's billing. Lloyd Memorial was able to withstand a game effort from Walton-Verona to hang on for a 28-20 win. For a team who was unable to notch a signature win throughout the 2014 season a road win against the favorite to win the District Championship will serve as an excellent starting point.

 

LCA Demands Attention

The only 2A team to defeat a ranked opponent in Week 0 ended up being Lexington Christian Academy. The Eagles crushed last year's 1A Runner-Up and Pre-Season #1 0 ranked Williamsburg in the most impressive of fashions by a score of 51-0. It is still too early to tell the significance of the win and just how badly the Yellowajckets have been hit by graduation, but for the time being there is no denying how impressive of a start it was.
