Class 1A

 

The two teams who played for the Class 1A State Title in 2015 had tough draws this Friday as Beechwood and Pikeville lost by a combined score of 100-23 to two very good larger classification foes. The two remain in the Top 5, but as a result Paintsville and Raceland both see their number decrease by one behind incumbent top-ranked Russellville. District play begins for some of the Top 10 teams with the most notable match-up being #6 Nicholas County putting their undefeated record on the line against Bishop Brossart. Beechwood and Fairview each draw Top 10 teams from Class 2A.

 

1. Russellville at 2A Murray

2. Paintsville at 4A Bourbon County

3. Raceland at Portsmouth West (OH)

4. Beechwood at 2A #9 Covington Holy Cross

5. Pikeville at South Floyd

6. Nicholas County vs. Bishop Brossart

7. Hazard at Jenkins

8. Fairview at 2A #7 Lexington Christian

9. Kentucky Country Day at 3A Adair County

10. Louisville Holy Cross at 5A Grant County

 

 

Class 2A

 

It is becoming commonplace at this point to see the Class 2A Top 10 rack up the wins in their early season Non-District slates. Among the Top 10 teams there was not a loss to be found as they compiled an 8-0 record. The biggest head turner was DeSales statement win over a Top 5 5A team as they handled Fern Creek. All told seven of the eight wins tallied were against either 4A or 5A schools. This week will be an action packed slate featuring a nice mixture of key District match-ups, as well as big time showdowns with ranked competition. The headliner will be Mayfield squaring up against a red hot #2 3A Corbin squad on a neutral field. The under card will be a defacto District Championship perhaps between Owensboro Catholic and Butler County.

 

1. Mayfield vs. 3A #2 Corbin (at Lindsey Wilson College)

2. Christian Academy-Louisville -- OPEN

3. DeSales -- OPEN

4. Owensboro Catholic at Butler County

5. Danville vs. Green County

6. Newport Central Catholic at 6A Conner

7. Lexington Christian Academy vs. 1A #8 Fairview

8. Glasgow vs. 5A #4 Greenwood

9. Covington Holy Cross vs. 1A #4 Beechwood

10. Lloyd Memorial at 3A #10 Garrard County

 

 

Class 3A

 

This was the kind of week that Class 3A needed. The mainstays to the Class 3A Top 10 have seemingly all challenged themselves with brutal Non-District schedules and the early season has seen a lot of "L's" accumulate as a result. Week 4 though featured the Class 3A Top 10 going 8-1 in action, the lone loss being Lexington Catholic against 6A Madison Central. Two teams who have been immune to tasting defeat have been the clear cut #1 and #2 teams Belfry and Corbin. The East Kentucky powerhouses both had statement wins the past week, but both also now must prepare for their stiffest tests of the season. Belfry squares off with the defending Class 4A State Champions from Tennessee and Corbin has to take on the loaded Mayfield Cardinals. The other game to keep an eye on will be a massive District clash between Central and Waggener.

 

1. Belfry at Knoxville Catholic (TN)

2. Corbin vs. 2A #1 Mayfield (at Lindsey Wilson College)

3. Lexington Catholic vs. 6A #10 Cooper

4. Caldwell County vs. Paducah Tilghman

5. Boyle County vs. 5A Lincoln County

6. Central vs. #8 Waggener

7. Bardstown at Henry County

8. Waggener at #6 Central

9. Russell vs. West Carter

10. Garrard County vs. 2A #10 Lloyd Memorial

 

 

Class 4A

 

To quantify Week 4 as a busy week for Class 4A would be an understatement. Half of last week's Top 10 took on teams with a number next to their name and those who did not face a ranked team were challenged by either a higher classification foe or a regional rival. When the smoke settled the Top 4 held strong, but some losses in the back half of the Top 10 created considerable movement, namely the return of Spencer County to the Top 10 after a head turning win over Bullitt Central.

 

1. Johnson Central at Boyd County

2. Wayne County vs. Clay County

3. South Warren at #4 Franklin-Simpson

4. Franklin-Simpson vs. #3 South Warren

5. Hopkinsville -- OPEN

6. John Hardin at 6A Meade County

7. Rockcastle County vs. 2A Somerset

8. Knox Central vs. Russell County

9. Spencer County at Collins

10. Mercer County vs. Marion County

 

 

Class 5A

 

Judging solely by name recognition, it is hard not to highlight each week what Covington Catholic and Highlands result was. No week created more separation between the two than Week 4 as Covington Catholic made another statement by crushing 1A Beechwood, while Highlands took yet another lopsided loss. One familiar name that rose to the challenge was three time defending Eastern Semi-State representative Pulaski County who rallied in the Second Half for a big win over Rockcastle County. The slate in Week 5 is a bit lighter on the whole as teams prepare their final dress rehearsals before District Standings really start adding up. Just like last week all eyes will be in the Land of Goetta as Covington Catholic and Highlands both take on very talented foes.

 

1. Bowling Green vs. 6A Central Hardin

2. Covington Catholic at St. Francis DeSales (OH)

3. Christian County at Marshall County

4. Greenwood at 2A #8 Glasgow

5. Fern Creek at Fairdale

6. Pulaski County at Madison Southern

7. Southwestern at Montgomery County

8. South Oldham at Oldham County

9. Owensboro -- OPEN

10. Highlands vs. 6A #3 Simon Kenton

 

 

Class 6A

 

"THIS SPOT STILL PENDING". Well, at least that is how it seems following the on going mystery of the highly anticipated match-up between Lafayette and Scott County. Due to lightning, field access, track meets, rumors, KHSAA involvement, and numerous other planes that are yet to land we are all left wondering what actually happened after the game was suspended at Half Time and never resumed. What we did see in Class 6A resolved in the scoreboard was Trinity surviving a game challenge from PRP, Simon Kenton validating themselves against Cooper, and DuPont Manual winning a defensive struggle with Ballard. This week PRP gets their encore performance at taking aim at one of the Louisville Catholic powerhouses as they draw St. Xavier. Lexington also takes center stage with a pair of key games featuring four of Fayette's best as Lafayette takes on Henry Clay and suddenly hot Tates Creek squaring up Bryan Station.

 

1. Trinity vs. Jeffersontown

2. Male at Butler

3. Simon Kenton at 5A #10 Highlands

4. Scott County vs. George Rogers Clark

5. Lafayette vs. Henry Clay

6. St. Xavier vs. #9 Pleasure Ridge Park

7. Ryle -- OPEN

8. DuPont Manual at 4A Western

9. Pleasure Ridge Park at #6 St. Xavier

10. Cooper at 3A #3 Lexington Catholic
