5A South Oldham (0-2) looks for their first victory of the season at home against powerful 6A Ballard.   Ballard (2-0) already has wins over ranked teams Hopkinsville and Male.

The Dragons will be trying to get their offense untracked behind that mammoth offensive line; South has struggled to find the end zone in losses to CAL and Fairdale.   That will be a real challenge against the Bruin "D", which surrendered just 88 total offensive yards to pre-season Top 10 Hopkinsville in their opener (a shutout) and then gave up just 7 points to Male last week.   

South has moved the ball, averaging 300 yards of offense a game, but has struggled to get the points, scoring just two rushing TDs against Fairdale and failing to score against CAL.   QB Nick Hamilton has performed reasonably well in the early going, throwing for over 350 yards in two games while completing about 50% of his passes.    Five different Dragons have caught passes.   On the ground, Jeffrey Burton is averaging 90 yards a game.

When Ballard has the ball, South's talented and quick defensive secondary may have to worry more about run support this week; Ballard hasn't relied much on the passing game so far, throwing the ball just 18 times in two games, for just 97 yards and 2 INT (no TD).

Who wins?   Andy Kerrick and Matt Hill have the broadcast call from Crestwood, beginning at 7 pm ET on www.pegasussportsky.com
