Lloyd vs. NewCath
Lloyd (6-1) is looking for another big District win over the Newport Central Catholic (2-4). The Juggernauts have won 4 in a row including a huge win over Holy Cross two weeks ago. It won’t be an easy task though as the Breds look to get back on the winning side after losing to Holmes last week 12-7. And since 2007, the Breds have won 7 straight over the Juggernauts.
Lloyd has a nice balanced attack on offense led by Senior QB Dexter Smith. Smith has 576 rush yards with 12 TD’s on the ground. Through the air, Smith as 1,423 pass yards and 11 TD’s. He’s assisted by two other players with over 200 yards rushing, and by Senior WR Tomi Mejolagbe who leads NKY in receiving yards with 693.
NewCath also has a balanced offense from Cain, Hayes and Franzen. Senior QB Josh Cain has thrown for 1,076 yards and 9 TD’s this season. Senior RB Dylan Hayes has rushed for 592 yards and 8 TD’s, while Junior Mac Franzen leads the team in receiving with 536 yards and 3 TD’s.
Cooper vs. South Oldham
Cooper (6-1) lost their first game of the season last week to Conner 38-21. They now have a big District game against South Oldham (6-1) who has already beaten Conner. The Dragons have won 5 in a row and get to host the Jaguars this Friday. Cooper defeated South Oldham last year 40-21.
