Aside from two turnovers on a fumble and an interception, Simon Kenton couldn't have asked for a much better performance on Friday. Taking your team to Fort Thomas and handing the 5A Highlands Bluebirds a loss after only two weeks of full practice is definitely good news for any football program. The Pioneers also started their second year with Chase Crone at quarterback, who had a very solid game as a sophomore, going 16-32 passing for 253 yards and 1 TD, and rushing for another 38 yards. Senior WR Trey Little had 133 yards and 1 TD on 5 receptions, and sophomore RB Jayden Lawson had 103 yards and 2 TDS on 14 carries. Simon Kenton fans have to be smiling thinking about how well their offensive backfield did with two sophomores getting the start behind the line. The defense allowed 345 yards total offense to the Birds.

Walton-Verona's season opener at Newport Central Catholic was a frustrating game for the Bearcats. Their offense really struggled to find its groove. QB Trey Hatmaker was faced with the tough task of taking the field only a day after losing his father. His 4-14 passing for 46 yards did best New Cath's 4-10 passing for 13 yards, but it wasn't enough to make up for the team's 4 turnovers. They lost the overall yardage game 256 yards to 203. On the defensive side, Walton-Verona did force the Breds into numerous three-and-out situations, only allowing them to convert on 3 of their 9 third downs, but their inability to stop big running play on Saturday, accompanied by their turnovers on the other side of the ball added up to a 23-7 loss.

The game on Friday is the first time these two programs have seen the varsity playing field against each another. The only other time Walton-Verona has faced a 6A football competitor was in 2008 against Cooper, when both teams were holding their first ever varsity seasons. The Jaguars beat the Bearcats 27-24 in Verona.

So much about football is a numbers game, and the numbers here indicate that SK should roll.

I know teams scrambled for games with the virus issues, but I am wondering why Walton Verona scheduled this. It sure looks like a big mismatch. Is a beat down better than a bye?

The game the Bearcats played against Cooper was at Cooper's home field actually.
