Two of CKY's brand names seek momentum building win heading into postseason

Records: LexCath (7-2), Scott County (5-4)

BGP Ranking: LexCath (#4 in 4A), Scott County (#8 in 5A)

Series History: LexCath leads 5-1 all-time

Table Setter: These two perennial contenders and former state champions haven't met since 2008, despite being only 25-30 minutes apart. LexCath is still pretty much where they left off thirteen years ago, engaging in heated battles with Boyle County for control of their district and deep playoff runs. Scott County's stature in the landscape of Kentucky football has grown substantially since then, with longtime coach Jim McKee delivering a state title and keeping the Cardinals in the hunt every year since.

There's been a different vibe in Georgetown this year, with Scott County spending more time at the bottom of the top 10 than near the top, even briefly dropping from the rankings at one point. A win this week is necessary to avoid the program's first .500 regular season in sixteen years. Last week, the Cardinals battled to the end against a Ballard team that's only lost to 6A's best. In defeat, it was an encouraging performance against a team entrenched in the 6A top 10.

LexCath has navigated a treacherous schedule to arrive at Week 11 with a look at its winningest regular season in nine years. The Knights have been feast or famine offensively, averaging nearly 40 points per game in their seven wins and just 8.5 in their two losses. When they're on, quarterback Jack Gohmann has lit the pilot light. He's closing in on 2,000 yards of total offense with 24 touchdowns. The defense has been suspect more often than not, with the run defense, in particular, being a weak spot. That could spell trouble against Scott County's wing-t.

Sidenote on the strength of schedule for both teams: their six total losses have come against teams with a combined record of 46-8.

Lex Cath has a great kicker that could play big in this game. LC's defense is "bend but don't break" mentality with be put to the test with the ground and pound of Scott Co. Lex Cath offense can score in bunches, but I see this one close LC- 24 Scott Co- 21

I'll go with Scott County since weather favors them. I think either team can win.

I agree weather is a big advantage for the Cards.
