High School Football Roundup

Spencer County 47 vs Franklin 42

In their biggest game to this point in the season, Spencer County’s offense proved they were up to the test. Brandon Leff ran for 233 yards and Logan Holbrook added 217 to push SCHS to an 8-0 record. Spencer County led 34-7 at the half, but Barrett Sanderson threw four touchdowns and pushed a comeback in the second half. SCHS held off the comeback and stayed undefeated. Sanderson threw for 267 yards, but Spencer County’s 479 rushing yards were too much for Franklin County.

St. Xavier 27 vs Manual 6

For the 27th straight time, St. X beat Manual. Led by Desmond Ridder, the Tigers never trailed and were the first team to score 20 points against the Crimsons in 2015. Ridder threw for 151 yards and 68 rushing yards as he accounted for all three of St. X’s touchdowns. Held back by 14 penalties, Manual lost for the first time this season. Their defense could not contain Ridder from the opening drive throughout the rest of the game. Ridder has struggled with consistency in his junior season, but it is obvious he is coming into his own. It’s scary to think he still has two seasons left to develop.

Cooper 27 vs Ryle 21

Another undefeated season came to an end as Ryle fell for the first time to Cooper. Ryle led 3-0 at the half, but Cooper took a 14-6 lead after three quarters. Ryle would tie it at 14 and Cooper would score two late touchdowns to push away the Raiders 27-21. The big play came when Byron Brown of Cooper returned a kick for a touchdown to give the Jaguars a 21-14 lead. Cooper would not look back after that score.

Notes From Across the State

Kash killed a guy. He also finished with 10 tackles.

Scott County had three players with 100+ rushing yards against Henry Clay. Noah Hughes (145), Keith Guy (106), and Kendrick Hamilton (101) all reached the century mark in a 63-35 win for Scott County.

South Warren shutout their third straight opponent. The 3A powerhouse beat Warren East 52-0 and have not allowed a point since September 11th. The Spartans have allowed 28 points on the season and sit at 7-0.

Belry had seven turnovers and nine fumbles. AND WON. The Pirates pulled away 27-23 from Lawerence County despite not holding on to the ball whatsoever.

    Pretty sure the Belfry mascot is a Pirate not a bulldog.

    Just because you end up a player a hundred pounds lighter than you in your grasp, it is not ok turn him upside and ram him into the turf head first. Lucky he is not paralyzed today. Just put him on the ground and save some of that energy and strength for next year against Vols, Cards, Gators etc.

    Agree that Des Ritter continues to learn and impress. He’s a humble young man who works very hard. The only correction to your write up…Desmond is a Junior.

    Well, if the NFL doesn’t work out for Kash Daniels, then he definitely has a future in the UFC.

    There seems to be an abundance of rumors and shortage of facts here lately. Desmond Ridder is a junior at Saint Xavier.

    How about Louisville Trinity? No mention?

      I admit I butchered the year as I misread his class year. But a blowout win over a mediocre Eastern team does not warrant mention for Trinity.
