Kentucky High-school Football, Week 5

First, let's back up a little further than this past weekend's action in Kentucky high-school football. The Bluebird backers up in Fort Thomas didn't much care for it last December when a Covington Catholic fan found funny the Class 4A runnerup finish by Highlands.

OK, now back to the now ... strike up the band in Mount Washington! Bullitt Central beat Elizabethtown, 28-27, in overtime Friday. The Cougars are now 5-0 and ranked 10th in Class 5A. (Bowling Green, 5-1 after a 63-0 win at Barren County, remains No. 1.)

At this point Friday evening, the Bombers of Barlow were still undefeated. But Ballard lost, 58-18, to visiting Caldwell County in a Class 2A clash. The Tigers of Princeton are 6-0 and ranked second in the state in 2A.

No. 1 in 2A remains the defending state champ, Louisville DeSales, which won at Bardstown, 39-14, and also is 6-0. 

Adair County is still winning. The latest win in Columbia was 40-19 over Russell County. The Indians are now 5-0, and this week they cracked the 3A poll at No. 10.

Edmonson County hoped to take down No. 1 in 3A, but it didn't happen. South Warren is 6-0 after a 40-0 decision in Brownsville.

Paducah Tilghman, now ranked eighth in Class 3A at 2-4, picked up its second-straight win--this one, 28-6, at 6A Henderson County.

Big win for Class A No. 2 Pikeville: 31-20 at Class 2A No. 9 Middlesboro. Pikeville is 6-0; Mayfield remains No. 1 in Class A with a 4-1 record.

Big win for Newport Catholic Central: 28-0 at previously unbeaten Erlanger Lloyd Memorial. This was the Thoroughbreds' first game of the season in their Class 2A. NewCath, at 1-4, and Lloyd, at 4-1, are both receiving votes for the poll but are not ranked.

A back-and-forth affair at Madisonville-North Hopkins ended with a 29-22 win by Owensboro. The Red Devils are now 5-1 and ranked third in 4A; the Maroons are 3-2 and eighth.

Meanwhile, down in southcentral Kentucky, Franklin-Simpson drove over to Russellville and won, 21-20. F-S is 4-1 and ranked sixth in Class 4A; Russellville is 5-1 and ranked fifth in Class A.

Louisville Male, the state's top-ranked Class 6A team, beat Ballard, 50-13.

Nobody at CovCath was laughing after their team lost, 42-7, to Highlands. The 5-0 Bluebirds are ranked first in Class 4A.

Few people in the United States seem to be having as fun of a fall as is Damien Harris of Berea. On his latest Friday in the spotlight, he ran for the winning and pretty much every other score in Madison Southern's 54-51 win over visiting South Laurel. Plus, at halftime, he was named homecoming king! MadSouth is 5-0 and remains third in 5A.

Finally, it was great to hear that Coach Haskins was released from Paducah's Lourdes Hospital on Sunday, two days after he collapsed on the sideline during McCracken County's 72-27 win over Fort Campbell. His and our Mustangs are 5-0 and fifth in 6A.
