Crittenden County lost 24-12 in the quarter-finals in Louisville against Holy Cross (Louisville).

No western Kentucky interest here.  But for the record, (3) Trinity lost 10-7 at Bryan Station in the quarter-finals.  (2) St. X lost 22-21 at home in overtime to Male in the Round of 16.  (8) Lou. Ballard looked to have Male beaten in the semi-finals, but a late fumble gave Male a 24-20 victory.

Class 5A:  (1) Lex. Douglass (14-0) v. (5) Bowling Green (12-2), 7 P.M. Central
(17) Owensboro lost 14-2 at Douglass in the state semi-finals.
