The Rankings

10) Garrard County (3A / 2 – 1)

The Golden Lions post another win over Lincoln County 36 to 29. This #10 spot was between the Golden Lions and the Lexington Catholic Knights – who are in the same district with Boyle County and Western Hills. The nod went to Golden Lions with the better record. A 1-1 4A Rockcastle County team is next for Garrard County with East Jessamine following.

 

9) Danville (2A / 2 – 1)

The Admirals lost to Boyle County this week in the big rivalry game. They still put up 20 points on the very defensive oriented Rebels – one more than Central Hardin. So the Admirals stay in the top 10 with a gutsy performance against the clear #2 in the region. Next up is Corbin and then an off week for the Admirals.

 

8) Lexington Christian (2A / 3 – 0)

The Lexington Christian Eagles took care of business against a Green County that came into this weeks game undefeated with a score of 21 to 6. The Eagles go 3 – 0. A 2 – 1 Estill County is up next for the Eagles.

 

7) Lafayette (6A / 2 – 1)

The Generals were ‘Rocked’ by Trinity 70 to 14 Friday night. What did this game tell us – unfortunately, not much. We know Trinity is now one of the top prep schools n the country. And we know Lafayeette … is not. But Lafayette may still be a good, solid and formidable team when measured to the mortals of Kentucky high school football this year. But there is a chance this game may hurt the Generals going forward if they do not shake it off. The Generals can regroup with what should be an easy game against Boone County next week. Then they face three tough games in a row - Scott County, Henry Clay and Bryan Station.

 

6) Madison Central (6A / 3 – 0)

The Madison Central Indians earn their way into the list with a win over #10 Bourbon County. The early Indian schedule has made it hard to gauge this squad so far. But they are 3-0 for the first time since 2008 and have been solid in all 3 wins so far. The measuring stick will be clearer with the next two games being Bryan Station and Lexington Catholic. The Indians favor the pass with Zach Hardin being the QB. Hardin had a 223.6 efficiency rating and 64% accuracy after the first two games. His favorite targets in the first two games were Kody Kidd and Keenan Miller.

 

5) Anderson County (5A / 3 – 0)

Anderson posted a solid win against Mercer County this week, 55 to 14. Next up for Anderson is Boyle County and then Franklin County. The Redhounds have focused on using the ground attack early in the season. Ryan Martin and Brydon Labhart are both averaging around 8 yards a a carry for the Redhounds.

 

4) Franklin County (4A / 3 – 0 )

The Flyers took care of Woodford County 56 to 35. Their next contest is against local rival Frankfort . The Flyers will be well favored in that game. Then they have Anderson County in a key 4A Central Kentucky game on September 18th. Denzel Vance leads the Flyers rushing game with over 7 yards a carry in the first two games.

 

3) Bryan Station (6A / 2 – 1)

The Defenders brought Cooper back down to Earth with a more than solid 36 to 0 win. Coach Frank Parks approach of playing tough teams from outside the region early in his schedule before district starts seems to be paying off. The next opponent is 6A #6 Madison Central. The Defenders are leverage the passing game with QB Andre Davis leading th offense. Rafael Few and Devon Key are th leading receivers for the Defenders.

 

2) Boyle County (3A / 3 – 0)

The Rebels topped Danville in the annual rivalry. They did more with the air game than the running game with 20-31 passing for over 400 yards and 4 TDs. If Boyle County and Josiah Robbins keep up those type of stats in the passing column the Rebels will be hard to touch. Next up for Boyle is 5A #5 Anderson County. Of Boyle’ remaining schedule the district games may be the most challenging.

 

1) Scott County (6A / 3 – 0)

Running clock. That says it all for this week and why this team is number 1 in the Lexington Central Kentucky Rankings. The Cardinals go to Cincinnati Elder this next week. Could that game tell us if we have two teams worthy of national attention? McKee seems to have his strongest Cardinal team to date. The Cardinals are going most of their office hurt via the ground game and that is lead by Keith Guy. Guy was going into the Highlands game average over 130 yards a game on over 8 yards a carry.

 

Big Movers

Lexington Catholic drops out of the rankings this week. Johnson Central was inside the redzone before the Knight defense got a key stop and crawled back into the game, but they where never really in this game. With only 1 win over a very down opponent the Knights could not hang in this week.

 

Madison Central enters the ranking with a solid 3-0 mark. Wins are wins and the Indians have 3 with no losses. They also have some games that will enhance their SoS coming up.

 

Lafayette is down this week. The lost to Trinity was not surprising. With a more competitive game the Generals would have not slid so much. But the Generals seemed to have no answer for the Rocks.

 

Bryan Station is now the top Fayette County 6A team. The Defenders bounce back from the SK loss with an impressive win over Cooper. Lafayette slides in a big loss to Trinity.

 

In the Wings

Lexington Catholic and Henry Clay could get back into the ranking with some quality wins. Henry Clay had a good win this weekend against George Rogers Clark. Bourbon could move back in as well. With only 2 games so far its difficult to gauge the Colonels.

 

Woodford County still needs some wins to prove themselves. they will have missed a chance to prove they are one of Central Kentucky’s top teams.

 

Paris is now 3 – 0 and with a 28 to 0 win over Ludlow. Just sayin’.

 

Game of the Week

Madison Central (6A #5 ) vs Bryan Station (6A #3), September 11, 7:30. Bryan Station High School

 

Two 6A Central Kentucky teams square off in a game that will impact these rankings. It will also give some insight into the post season for Central Kentucky 6A.

 

The Boyle County / Anderson County game is also a key match-up in the region.

Of course you can't really dispute the top 3 after the performances they put on last week. Bryan Station shut out Cooper, Boyle County with a running clock in the 3rd quarter against Danville and Scott County putting a running clock on the almighty Bluebirds. CKY football is looking fairly solid right now.

This is nice to see. The area is often treated like a redheaded stepchild; good to see some strength in central KY.

Again they put. Woodford co needs some wins to prove they are a top team ??? We won 4 games last year. An 1 game the year prior ??? So far. Just one this year. That's 6 games in 3 years. An we have how many "d-1" players ?? I'm from Woodford co. An I know several of the kids. Great great kids from great families. But someone has got to help fix this train wreck. What is really goin on? We have a entirely new coaching staff!

Oh! Those are their ranks from this list. I thought you were talking about their ranks in all of 6A. I got confused because the Game of the Week lists Madison as #5 but they are #6 in the list.

 

Sorry, it should be #6 in the Game of Week.

 

I was overlooking MC the first two weeks but they are getting it done. The game with Bryan Station should be a good measuring stick. Station would have be viewed as favorite. So a win or close game by Madison Central will be good for them.
