BluegrassPreps Class 1A Football Rankings (10/5) - Discussion

Recommended Posts

Class 1A

It is time for district play. That often brings us some lopsided matchups, but it also brings us some great head to head matchups within the class. We get a preview of that this week. 

Last Friday, the reigning king of 1A Pikeville tasted defeat for the first time this year at the hooves of the 6A Campbell County Camels. Talk about going from one end of the spectrum to the other. The week before, the Panthers scored 58 points and had 655 yards of offense in a win against 6A Henry Clay. Campbell County held Pikeville to 183 yards offense and eight points. Nevertheless, Pikeville remains #1 here as they enter district play at Phelps. 

Paintsville is an even stronger #2 after a second consecutive shutout win. Last week, the Tigers shut out Coach Mark Dixon's former team Hazard, and this week they shut out his current team 4A Perry County Central. The Tigers continue to impress. They also enter district play this week with a visit from Fairview.

Kentucky Country Day also suffered their first loss of the year to a 6A team, losing 28-21 to Bullitt East. The Bearcats will try to shake that off and get back on track when Berea visits them this week.

Louisville Holy Cross continues to impress. They defeated 6A Southern by an even wider margin than what Kentucky Country Day did to Southern the week before. That gets the Cougars to 4-0 and sets up the Game of the Week in 1A when the 4-0 Bethlehem Eagles visit. The Eagles got their fourth win by a 19-14 margin against 2A Washington County. This looks like an even matchup on paper. Last year these two split their matchups. Look for more info and discussion in the game thread.

Crittenden County stays at #6 with a 56-34 win over 3A Trigg County. The Rockets have rebounded from their opening loss with three wins in a row. Their district opener this week is Caverna.

Raceland took one on the chin against neighbor, 3A #7 Ashland. The even tougher thing for the Rams in this one is the 50-15 margin of defeat. The Rams have more work to do to get back to that level they have been accustomed to over the years. They will continue that work this week when they travel to Betsy Layne.

Our other top ten teams - #5 Newport Central Catholic, #9 Williamsburg and #10 Russellville all had last Friday off.

1. Pikeville at Phelps

3. Kentucky Country Day vs. Berea

4. Louisville Holy Cross vs. #7 Bethlehem

8. Raceland at Betsy Layne

9. Williamsburg vs. Harlan

10. Russellville at 2A Edmonson County

Right now the Top 4 are the same as last years Final Four in the playoffs. Can Crittenden County or NewCath get through to the final four or are we going to see a repeat? Also does it even matter? Are the final two head and shoulders above the rest, where we are headed for a Paintsville/Pikeville final again?

I think the top 2 are locks for the final four. The other 2 slots are up for grabs. Crittendon County and Newport Central Catholic both have very good chances of being in that final 4.

Really excited for the Holy Cross/Bethlehem game. I think most people know what Holy Cross is but there is a little bit of wait and see with Bethlehem. That could all change after this weekend.

 Bethlehem won the regular season match up between these 2 last year.
