Five NKY Teams remain in Football Playoffs
11/21/2013 - by NKS Editor
Beechwood, NewCath, CovCath, Highlands and Simon Kenton take one step further to the State Championship playing in the Quarterfinals of the football playoffs on Friday. Here's a look at the match-ups this weekend:

Beechwood (8-4) at Frankfort (10-2)
Class 1A Beechwood defeated Paris last week 47-3 while Frankfort beat Bellevue 24-14. The Tigers have defeated the Panthers the past 5 playoff games and should come out with a win again this weekend.

NewCath (8-4) at Gallatin County (10-2)
Even though Gallatin County has a 10-2 record, they will have their work cut out for them to defeat the Breds. NewCath played a much tougher schedule this year and has prepared them for the playoffs. NewCath defeated Walton-Verona last week 36-0 while Gallatin County beat Carroll County 49-26. NewCath beat Gallatin County last year in the playoffs 49-13, and are looking to repeat last year's Class 2A Championship.

CovCath (10-2) at Highlands (11-1)
CovCath's last loss came to Highlands on September 28, 42-6. Since then, the Colonels have won 7 straight. They had an impressive win over Johnson Central last week 42-14. The Colonels return some key players since their loss to the Birds but it be enough to get them over the hump?

Highlands defeated Ashland Blazer last week 56-6 and are looking for the 7th straight State Championship. They have defeated CovCath in 10 straight games dating back to 2007.

Simon Kenton (12-0) at Louisville Butler (10-2)
Simon Kenton's undefeated season continues to Louisville Butler on Friday. The Pioneers defeated Dixie in our OMEGA Processing Game of the Week 31-19 to advance to this Class 6A Quarterfinal game.

Butler defeated Campbell County last week 14-7. This should be a close game at first, but look for Simon Kenton to pull away and advance to the Semifinals. These 2 teams last played in 2009 where the Pioneers won 49-7.
