Friday night's second round of the high school football playoffs has set up some big rivalry games for next week.

Highlands will meet Covington Catholic. Newport faces Newport Central Catholic. Dixie Heights takes on Simon Kenton.

How did they get there?

The River City News's Bryan Burke, Brian Frey, and Jason Finnell hit up some of the games and have these results.
