Scott at Highlands (NKY.com BROADCAST)
CovCath at Dixie
Campbell County at Boone County
Simon Kenton at Ryle (NKY.com BROADCAST)
The only undefeated team this year was the Highlands Bluebirds with a perfect 10-0 record. Highlands had to come from behind against Central last week and won 21-13. CovCath played Louisville St. Xavier really well in the first half and was leading 14-3 at one point but St. X rallied back to win 31-14. Another good game last week was NewCath's 41-28 win over Beechwood. Beechwood rallied back in the 4th quarter to make it 31-28 but the Bred's held the Tigers off.
This week look for the Bellevue/Dayton game to be much closer. Dayton won earlier in the year 35-8 but Bellevue had 6 turnovers in that game. Also look for a very good game between CovCath and Dixie. Dixie won their earlier matchup in September 44-28 but CovCath has improved and has their star running back Brent Buckley has returned from injury. Ryle was upset by Simon Kenton 18-10 earlier in the season so look for the Raiders to bounce back on their home field.
