Unbeaten Warhawks Have Cards In Their "Cross"-hairs

Records: Great Crossing (5-0) | Scott County (4-1)

Series History: Scott County leads 4-0 all-time

Table Setter: When Great Crossing opened its doors three years ago, Scott County was fresh off a 6A state runner-up and eleven straight ten win seasons. The Cardinals were an oak tree in central Kentucky, while Crossing was a sapling, only beginning to take root. The discrepancy was driven home in their first ever encounter, a 72-7 Scott County demolition. But the margin has shrunk with each subsequent meeting: 65-31-8-2. The Warhawks nearly clipped the Cardinals wings last year. Little brother is growing up fast, but are they ready for what comes next? 

Strength of schedule is all Scott County heading into the latest edition of the 'Battle of the Birds'. Great Crossing has feasted on a slate of opponents with a combined record of 6-20. Even the Cardinals' drubbing at the hands of Frederick Douglass is better preparation than any of Crossing's wins. If the Cards have a short memory and turn the page on last week, the pieces are there to keep the Warhawks at bay another year. Conversely, Crossing appears to have the horses to overtake its elder rival. At the forefront of that stable is edge rusher Oryend Fisher. He leads a ferocious pass rush that's tallied 26 ½ sacks in five games. How effective they are at getting to Andrew Hickey depends on how well they slow Scott County's bread and butter. There's no passer to rush if your opponent runs the ball down your throat.

This Friday could mark a changing of the guard or a reaffirmation of superiority in Georgetown. Option three: a four quarter affair that stokes the competitive fire for next year. Either way, it will unfold before the watchful eyes of a packed 'Bird's Nest'.
