High School Football Roundup: UK commits lead North Hardin, Somerset, Frederick Douglass to Victory

#4 North Hardin 21 Belfry 20

UK commit La’Vell Wright scored a first half TD and caught a TD pass from Manie Wimberly with 28 seconds remaining to give the Trojans a hard-fought victory.

“We knew as a team we had more than enough time to drive down and score,” Wright told KSR after the game.  “As a team everyone knew we were going to march down the field and score.  I saw there were a few seconds on the clock and once we got the call the screen was to me, in my head I said no matter what get into the end zone!”

“We all said we we’re not coming down her to lose,” Wright said of the 5-hour bus ride from North Hardin to Belfry.  “We still have a lot to prove but I can everyone sees we are a hungry team and every game we need to make a statement.”

North Hardin, which also features UK DB commit Jordan Lovette and UK OL target Trey Alexander, now has another big road victory to go along with their win at Frederick Douglass in the first KSR Game of the Week.

Brett Coleman finished with 3 TDs for the Pirates, who led most of the game, but didn’t convert on a point after attempt late.

Camille Gear at WYMT has all the highlights here:

#8 Frederick Douglass 40 #10 Lexington Christian 6

UK commit Dekel Crowdus and UK 2022 target Dane Key each caught 2 touchdowns from Samuel Cornett to lead the Broncos to a surprisingly easy win over one of the state’s top 2A teams.  Credit also goes to UK commit Jager Burton and the rest of the Broncos’ offensive line for controlling the line of scrimmage.  The game was added to the schedule this week after COVID cancellations.  The Eagles left several points on the board, including a field goal that was blocked and a couple more field goal misses.  They will have another challenge next week when they visit top 2A district rival Somerset.

 

#9 Somerset 42 Danville 3

Somerset backed up their status as the top team in 2A with a dominating win over previously unbeaten Danville.  UK commit Kaiya Sheron was 8-for-13 for 162 yards and a score.  Kade Grundy caught 4 passes for 122 yards and a score.  The competition gets tougher next week when the Briar Jumpers host LCA.

#13 Bowling Green 28 #12 McCracken County 12

The Purples got 4 rushing touchdowns from Javy Bunton to overcome a 6-0 halftime deficit.  UK target Jordan Dingle added 5 catches for 32 yards for the Purples.  They bounced back nicely after falling to South Warren 10-7 last Friday in the KSR Game of the Week.

#3 Boyle County 40 Lexington Catholic 0

The Rebels extended their recent dominance over the Knights with a 40-0 shutout victory.  Jagger Willis scored 3 TDs and Will McDaniel added another one.  McDaniel rushed for 119 yards, almost as many as the Knight’s entire team gained.

#1 Trinity 40 Ballard 0

Trinity, ranked #13 in the USA Today Super 25, notched their 4th running clock in 4 games.  The Shamrocks defense held the Bruins to 2 yards in the first half and didn’t allow a first down until midway through the 4th quarter.  Junior Armon Tucker rushed for 160 yards and 3 scores.

St Xavier 28 DeSales 7

The Tiger’s move to 1-2 on the year thanks to some solid defense.  Micah Carter returned an interception for a TD an Eli Monks had a fumble recovery for the Tigers.  Mekhi Smith caught 2 TD passes in the victory.  This win will vault St. X back into the KSR Preps State Rankings.
