Wow, what a week of high school football last Friday.  Just a rundown of what happened:

-Two Top 50 teams nationally played a classic in Louisville, with 6-A #1 Male coming up with a 20-19 win over #2 Trinity thanks to a late extra point miss.

-The four 6-A quarterfinals were decided by 1, 1, 3, and 6 points respectively.

-5-A #1 Bowling Green went into Owensboro and crushed the #2 Red Devils, solidifying their status as heavy favorite in that class.

-Despite being unranked coming into the playoffs, Highlands has played it’s way into the semifinals once again in their first year in 5-A.

-Danville became the only team in the state to win each of it’s 3 playoff games by more than 40 points.

-In a quirk of classification, we are now guaranteed at least 3 new champions in the 5 classes, but 5 of 6 champions from last year still remain.  Highlands and Mayfield moved up in class.
