There will be big playoff implications for Oldham County and GRC when the two meet this coming Friday in Winchester.

Oldham County (3-2, 1-1) is coming off a disappointing 25-20 loss to Bryan Station.   The Colonels'  5 games this year have been decided by 7 points or less four times; only Oldham's 13 point win over Madison Central two weeks ago had a multi-score margin one way or the other.

George Rogers Clark (1-4, 1-1) got their first win of the season Friday with a resounding 48-15 pounding of Madison Central; the Cardinals gained over 500 yards of offense in the win, one week after gaining over 400 yards in a loss to Bryan Station.

With both teams sitting at 1-1, the winner will get at least one home game to start the playoffs, a major advantage in this district, where Oldham County is separated from the other three Lexington-area teams by 1 1/2 - 2 hour bus ride.   

In a district full of top-tier quarterbacks, GRC and Oldham feature two of the best, and their stats are remarkably similar.

Oldham's Sam Young, a junior, has been very hot of late, completing 62% of his passes in the last 3 games, for 571 yards and 7 TDs with 0 picks.   He's thrown for 889 yards on the season, with 8 scores and 2 TDs.     Young has also rushed for 276 yards and two TDs.

Jordan Manley of GRC, has completed 61% of his passes this year for 833 yards, including 9 TDs and 3 INT.

This will be an intriguing matchup.    I'll post more tidbits as the week progresses.

We're working to obtain permission to broadcast the game with GRC; with COVID, nothing's a given these days until game day.   With luck, we hope to be broadcasting live on www.pegasussportsky.com beginning at 7 pm ET Friday 10/23/2020.

But either way Oldham and Clark will play each other in the first round, correct? This is strictly determining the location.

Goldie has retired from BGP.  Made an announcement about it awhile back, due to her ALS diagnosis.

I missed that.  Perhaps it was between March and August, when I'm not as active on the board.

I really hate to hear that.   Always enjoyed her commentary.

This is correct.  Winner replays this matchup at home.

I'll post updates here as I can during the broadcast.

News in Louisville yesterday that GRC's talented running back, Azeriah Isreal, has committed to the Louisville Cardinals.

HALF tied at 28

Azariah Isreal, who already has over 100 yards rushing and 3 TDs, left the field after the final play of the half with what appeared to be a pulled hamstring.

Oldham unofficially with 220 yards of offense; GRC unoffcially with 293 yards.

Not a good night to be a defensive coordinator.
