Hopkinsville, after having unforeseen losses to Calloway County and Logan County earlier in the year, has really found traction now, avenged those earlier losses and is playing very good football right now.

I picked Hoptown to come to this point and think its a very good accomplishment.  But going to Danville to play a team focused on getting back to Lexington to avenge their own loss from last season seems too much here.

I like Boyle County in this game by 3 scores, but could see the game tight into the 3rd quarter.

I believe Boyle is the definite favorite, but Hopkinsville has the athletes and I believe matches up with Boyle’s strengths fairly well. 
 

I believe this game will be an under the radar game that could be tight into the 4th quarter. 
 

I’ll go

Boyle 35 

Hopkinsville 21

Did the Lexington Catholic game show some flaws in the Boyle Armor? 

I think it showed you can pass on them. 

In my opinion this is what last years Boyle team needed.  Someone to push them around and challenge them before State and show them where they need work.   

Other than Franklin County, no one left can pass the ball like Catholic.  Hopkinsville will not score on Boyle like the Knights did and I will say it Johnson Central can't because of their ground and pound game eating clock.  Franklin County would be a shoot out!

Hopkinsville can’t pass the ball? They have a power 5 WR in Reece Jesse and a big time sophomore WR in Daisjaun Mercer. They may not score as much but saying they cannot pass the football is pretty inaccurate.

He said can’t pass the ball like Lex Cath. Not that they can’t pass at all.

I feel my post is 100% accurate.  Hopkinsville will not and I repeat will not put 402 yards in the air against Boyle County with no interceptions like Lexington Catholic.

NFL & college teams have trouble doing that. That’s an impressive stat line.

No one has brought out the fact that Boyle had two key players on the sidelines with injury during the 4th quarter of the Lex Cath. game out of their secondary. A freshman defensive back played the entire 4th quarter. Those players are back and healthy.
