Kentucky High-school Football, Week 3

Here are my favorites of this weekend's Kentucky High School Athletic Association football games:

Caldwell County (3-0, No. 1 in the Associated Press poll for Class 2A) at Trigg County (2-1, 3A)--Well, I, too, think the "139 Bowl" name is really cool, and this, consequently, qualifies for my favorite fan-bus trip of the night. My guess is this means Caldwell and Trigg do consider each other their biggest rivals.

Newport Central Catholic (1-2, AP 2A No. 4) at Independence Simon Kenton (3-0, AP 6A No. 5) (17 Bowl)--Hey, Emma Talley (and the rest of Caldwell County), don't go all craycray over the notion of the defending Class 2A champs slipping to 1-3 with a loss in this challenging road date. NewCath went 1-3 last year, too, and still won the state championship.

Paducah Tilghman (1-2, AP 3A No. 6) at Graves County (2-0, AP 5A No. 10) (45 Bowl)--Have the Blue Tornadoes ever been swept by Mayfield and Graves County?

Owensboro (3-0, AP 4A No. 4) at Bowling Green (2-0, AP 5A No. 1) (231 Bowl)

Madisonville-North Hopkins (1-1, 4A) at Hopkinsville (2-1, 5A) (41 Bowl)

Elizabethtown (3-0, 3A) at Bowling Green South Warren (3-0, AP 3A No. 3) (31E Bowl)

Crittenden County (2-0, 2A) at Union County (1-1, 2A) (60 Bowl)

Danville (1-2, 2A) at Corbin (3-0, AP 3A No. 7) (150 Bowl)

Somerset (1-2, AP 2A No. 9) at Hazard (1-1, AP A No. 6) (80 Bowl)

Franklin County (3-0, AP 5A No. 7) at Frankfort (1-1, AP A No. 9) (East Main Bowl)

Shelbyville Martha Layne Collins (2-1, AP 4A No. 5) at Shelby County (2-0, 5A) (Midland Trail Bowl)

Covington Catholic (2-1, AP 4A No. 3) at Henderson County (3-0, AP 6A No. 6) (Ohio River Bowl)--Fan-barge voyage of the night (and a heck of a game, too).

Louisville Doss (2-1, 4A) at Louisville Central (2-1, AP 3A No. 1)

Colerain (Ohio) at Louisville Trinity (1-2, AP 6A No. 1)

Fort Thomas Highlands (3-0, AP 4A No. 1) at Elizabethtown John Hardin (2-1, AP 5A No. 4) on Saturday

  1. From the little Smart Pill machine:

    The Purple People Eaters of Bowling Green are feeling plump and happy this week, after polishing off a tasty meal of Tigers from Louisville St. X. The Purples are about to come under siege from a legion of crimson imps from Owensboro. The Devils are also riding high after opening their season with three wins in a row. But the Purples are far too powerful to be hurt by Red Magic, and before the night is over, the Devils will be headed back home to work on their spell books.

    Leonard's Loser: Owensboro.

    1. This was a great idea, to do a "Leonard's Loser" report for #khsfb.

  2. Caldwell County at Trigg County

    Princeton's Tigers are on their way down Route 139 to seek their fourth win of the season over a pack of Wildcats in Cadiz. The Wildcats are always tough to beat in their home lair, and they will be especially motivated to defeat their rivals from just up the road. But Coach David Barnes has his Tigers well-trained, and Princeton's big cats are not likely to be distracted by any traps laid for them in Cadiz. When this cat-fight is over, the ones wearing blue and gold will be on top.

    Leonard's Loser: Trigg County.

  3. These make me so happy. I feel like I'm riding with Dad in our Datsun B210, listening to the AM radio and going to get Griff's Burgers for Saturday lunch.
