  1. Thanks. This is beyond frustrating. Owensboro and Breckinridge is such a mismatch, we might just throw up an update thread on Friday night for that one. I was really looking forward to O/Hendo. That was a great RPI opportunity for Owensboro down the drain now.
  2. The trajectory of Comet's impact aimed at Red Devil Hill West Carter was cruising along at 5-0 before a last minute trip to Paintsville two weeks ago turned sour in the second half. It appeared they were falling victim to a little hangover against Boone County in Week 7, before Leetavious Cline was unleashed on the Rebels, scoring all four of West Carter's touchdowns in the 26-13 Comets win. He's reached the century mark on the ground in all seven games so far this year. Russell got an unexpected week off after their game with East Carter was cancelled. Sometimes you want to get back out there following a humbling loss and wash the taste of that defeat out of your mouth. But in Russell's case, an extra week off after the Ashland loss may be just what the doctor ordered, allowing the Red Devils an opportunity to reset and hopefully get some key people healthy. Russell and West Carter have met 27 times on the football field. The Red Devils have walked away victorious every time. A one sided series like that can take a toll on the oppressed, but at some point, enough is enough. Is that point this Friday? West Carter certainty hopes so, while Russell will do everything in its power to extend the Comets' futility another year.
  3. Redhounds go hunting in the Briar Patch Somerset (5-1, #2 in 2A) had to marinate in the loss to LCA for an extra week after the Washington County game was cancelled. They'll attempt to jump back into the win column against a Corbin team coming in hot on the heels of a blowout of Wayne County. It was the latest in a string of defensive gems from the Redhounds (5-1, #5 in 4A). They've been dialed in on defense, allowing just 21 total points over the last four games. For decades, this was a marquee game on each team's schedule, back when the two shared a district. The series was rekindled last year, with Somerset narrowly outpointing Corbin 27-26. Kaiya Sheron and Kade Grundy lit up the Hounds' secondary that night, but they're facing a stinger unit this time around. This game is especially important for Somerset. A win over a high quality opponent gets them back on track and earns them substantial RPI points against the 4A Redhounds, while a loss sends them backpedaling into the playoffs with back to back losses. You've probably heard of the tortoise and the hare, but this week we find out if the hare can outrun the hound. Historically, the Redhounds have outpaced the Jumpers, leading the all-time series 39-23-5.
  4. Owensboro crosses county line to tangle with surging Hendo One of the state's most intriguing inter-class matchups this week pits Henderson County, winners of four straight, against unbeaten Owensboro. The Colonels have a burst of momentum at their back after defeating then #6 McCracken County last week. That win should propel them into the 6A top 10. The same defense that shined against the Mustangs will be put to the test by an Owensboro offense that's reached the 40 point mark in six of its seven games this season, including Friday's drubbing of Grayson County. This has been a streaky rivalry over the years. Henderson County won five in a row from 2010-2014 before losing the last five to the Red Devils. Gavin Wimsatt's legs saved the day last year, as Owensboro edged Hendo 22-16. This game is the biggest threat to a potential unbeaten regular season for the Red Devils.
  5. Cards hope to leave Maroons feeling blue Young teams are appt to lose tight rivalry games, but Mayfield continued to defy its youth in Week 7, turning back a game Murray squad in a 21-20 overtime nail biter. Even in a rebuilding year, the Cards are finding a way to win. Their 25th straight victory over the Tigers means Mayfield (6-1, #4 in 2A) gets to stay at home for at least the first two rounds of the playoffs. Madisonville-North Hopkins (1-4) hasn't been as fortunate in navigating the challenges of being an inexperienced football team. And Covid has done them no favors, robbing the Maroons of three games this year. When they have gotten on the field, they've struggled, dropping three in a row heading into this matchup with Mayfield. MNH was blown out by Hopkinsville last week, 44-0. This game was a spectacle last year, with both teams coming in highly ranked and featuring talent all over the field. Mayfield led by three scores at halftime before MNH erased that deficit in the third quarter alone. The Cardinals eventually held on for a 53-50 win, with both teams combining for over a thousand yards of offense.
  6. After checking Boyd's schedule, it appears you're right. The KHSAA scoreboard has been a little confusing to follow this season.
  7. I knew the Spring Valley game was unlikely, but is the finale against Boyd County in jeopardy too?
  8. Boyle's drop was the first thing that jumped out to me as I was putting this together. I'd love to tell you that they'll be fine as long as they win their last two games, but I couldn't say it with much confidence.
  9. Ashland's resume is as good or better than anyone else's in 3A. Travelling a few hours from home on short notice and winning by 35 on Log Mountain is something a #1 team would do.
  10. Five championship games in a row, with two titles ('16 and '19).

  12. Final. Tremendous showing by E'town's defense, holding the state's top scoring team to six points.
  13. Tristan Cox powers his way over the goal line for the go-ahead score with :06 left. Two point conversion is good. 15-12 PC
  14. Gideon Brainard rumbles in for the Southwestern score. The two point conversion is no good. 12-7 Southwestern 5:17 in the 4th
  15. The game is delayed while an injured Warrior is taken off the field on a stretcher. The player in question has been motionless since going to the ground. If there's one thing you never want to see on a Friday night, it's this.
  16. Final. Six in a row for @coachhawk and the Defenders.
  17. "Raceland has a great quarterback, but he's surrounded by a lot of youth. Too much to beat Paintsville this year, I think. A competitive game shouldn't surprise anyone, but I'm looking for a minimum four score win for the road team." This didn't age well, lol. I'm glad the Rams proved me wrong.
