Last Week in Western Kentucky

This will be the last week that we give high school football scores only from western Kentucky, as there are now only eight teams left in each of the six football classes.  (Home teams listed first):

Class 1A:
Mayfield 38 - 14 Lou. Holy Cross
Kentucky Country Day 27 - 12 Russellville

For fans of western Kentucky football, Mayfield is like that one boring stock in your portfolio that just keeps putting up solid returns year after year -- they are the Coca-Cola of programs.  Once again, the Cardinals are the last team in the Purchase still playing.

Class 2A:
Caldwell Co. 52 - 25 Hancock Co.
Owensboro Catholic 22 - 29 Murray (2 OT)

Huge win for the Tigers, who hand O'boro Catholic -- which is basically a Daviess County All-Star team -- its only loss of the year.  Murray now travels to Princeton for this week's quarter-final against Caldwell County.  Caldwell beat Murray 24-21 in the regular season, and this should be quite a game on Friday night.

Class 3A:
Ft. Campbell 7 - 24 S. Warren
Monroe Co. 28 - 20 Paducah Tilghman

Very disappointing weekend for the Falcons and Tornadoes, as western Kentucky is shut out in 3A.

Class 4A:
Owensboro 31 - 7 Madisonville-N. Hopkins
Warren East 42 - 9 Lone Oak

Eric's pick of Warren East is still looking good.  The Raiders are now 12-0 and are home to Owensboro this week.

Class 5A:
Graves Co. 14 - 21 Warren Cent.
Bowling Green 31 - 17 Christian Co.

Yes, you are correct:  there are four teams from Warren County still alive in the KHSAA playoffs.  South Warren, Warren East, Warren Central, and Bowling Green all won last weekend.  What a great year for Warren County football.

Class 6A:
Henderson Co. 17 - 21 Lou. Eastern
Lou. Ballard 30 - 14 Oldham Co.

Of the eight teams still playing in 6A, six are located in Jefferson County.  This Friday, Trinity will play St. X for the state title.

Here's my big idea for the week.  After the playoffs are over, give the teams from Warren County a month or so to put together an all-star team.  Pick a coach, run some scrimmages, get everyone ready.  And then, on New Year's Day, Trinity goes to Bowling Green for a game against the Warren County All-Stars.  That would be exciting.

  1. I like this idea.

    I hoped to get over to Princeton on Friday to see the Murray-Caldwell game, but it's not going to happen. That Murray-OweCath game must've been phenomenal.
