Kentucky High-school Football, Class 5A Round of 32

Long-time Class 5A-observer I wrote last weekend, "On a gorgeous, muddy mess of a Friday night in Somerset, Bowling Green rocked home-standing, 2013-runnerup Pulaski County, 23-7, and then the Purples and Maroons made nice-nice on Twitter. I think BG's (roughly) coasting to another state title." I still agree with me. 

Beyond No. 1 Bowling Green from Region 1, I think the other final-four contenders are No. 3 Mount Washington Bullitt East and No. 8 Shepherdsville Bullitt Central from Region 2; No. 7 Crestwood South Oldham, unranked Union Randall K. Cooper, unranked Taylor Mill Scott and unranked Hebron Conner from Region 3, and No. 6 London North Laurel, No. 4 Pulaski County, No. 2 Somerset Southwestern and unranked Berea Madison Southern from Region 4. MadSouth opened 5-0, but then its star running back, Damien Harris, got hurt. Harris is back for the 6-4 Eagles' game at 8-2 Letcher County Central.
