Paintsville set to host top 5 semi sequel

Records: JC (11-2), FC (10-3)

BGP Ranking: JC (#3 in 4A), FC (#4 in 4A)

Series History: JC leads 1-0 all-time 

Table Setter: The four quarterfinal games of 4A came off with zero drama, but there was one score in particular that surely induced a few double takes. Johnson Central ran all over Corbin to ensure the Golden Eagles will be practicing on turkey day for the seventh year in a row. The three touchdown margin over a team that spent several weeks at #1 served as a reminder that JC's formula for success in November is as sturdy as it's ever been.

They return to Paintsville in preparation for a Franklin County squad that's reeled off eight straight wins - allowing just 6.7 ppg along the way - since a three game skid, highlighted by a three score loss to Corbin. The Flyers seem to have found their mojo. Allen County-Scottsville was the latest casualty in their pursuit of a return to Kroger Field.

If you're thinking this all sounds familiar, it's because we saw this last year. JC handled Corbin, while Franklin County blew out ACS to set up a primetime semifinal in Paintsville. The Flyers stunned the defending state champions to derail a tantalizing rematch with Boyle County. Now the shoe is on the other foot, as Johnson Central aims to prevent a potential Franklin County/Boyle County sequel. 

JC's mode of operation hasn't changed a bit from last year, but FC has transitioned from the Nick Broyles/Fred Farrier passing attack of 2020 to a Kaden Moorman-centric offense. Moorman was held in check by the Golden Eagles last year, but he's emerged as one of the top backs in the state this season.

This was the upset of the year last year in 4A in my opinion. Round 2. I think both teams are playing at a amazing level at the right time. Franklin County already knows they can win this game. I thin

 Franklin County won last year so I assume you meant FC leads series 1-0.

Indeed, I did. I got my JC and FC mixed up.

It's good to see you back, by the way.

I heard after the Corbin game in the JC huddle we’re talking about revenge. I’m taking JC in a huge win 42-13 keep in mind Corbin beat FC 27-7 

You can also keep in mind that was the beginning of the season too.

It’s been proven time and time again you can’t play the score game. I expect a closer than expected game with JC winning by a couple touchdowns.

This doesn't look like the same Franklin County team as last year.  Completely reimagined the offense, much more run-centric featuring Moorman, QB looks to be more dangerous on the ground than through the air.  (Which is credit to a good coach, being able to change your system to play to your strengths.)  That being said, it also plays far more into JC's defensive strengths.  Franklin has also been extremely sloppy the last two games, very turnover and penalty-prone.  All that being said, obviously they'll come in and play their best game of the year Friday night, wouldn't expect anything less.  Central isn't nearly so banged up as they were after the Corbin game last year, which is a positive.

So much for unfinished business for Eddie if these votes hold up and JC rolls over FC....

I hadn't paid to much attention to them this year, assumed they were Kroger Field bound at least....

 

Odd tone ?
