Louisville’s biggest rivalry continued its one-sided tradition Friday night at a new location. Played on-campus for just the second time in the series’ storied history due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Trinity defeated St. X 48-10 to claim their 16th victory over the Tigers in the last 18 meetings.
The game wasn’t always out of reach for St. X. The Tigers’ defense actually forced four straight punts in the first half. The game spiraled once offensive and special teams mistakes piled up.
Trinity’s Roman White and Bradley West each returned punts for touchdowns, and Michael Patterson and Kyle Feger each had pick sixes for the Rocks. St. X threw three picks and only completed four passes on the night, totaling just 48 yards of offense.
Campbell County 14, Pikeville 8
After demolishing 6A Henry Clay a week prior, Pikeville’s explosive offense was shut down by the Camels in a trip to Northern Kentucky. Zac Lockhart set a state record last week with 17 receptions for 388 yards and 7 touchdowns. Last night Campbell County limited him to just three receptions for 31 yards. Campbell County quarterback Justin Little scored the go-ahead touchdown in the third quarter and completed the two-point conversion to snap the Panthers’ 17-game win streak.
Dixie Heights 28, Beechwood 20
One of the biggest games in Northern Kentucky was filled with big plays. Beechwood’s Mitch Berger made it a one score game just before half by hauling in a 74-yard touchdown, but each team saved their biggest fireworks for the fourth quarter. With less than five minutes to play, Dixie Heights quarterback Logan Landers connected with Devin Holbert for an 88-yard touchdown, seemingly putting the game out of reach until Beechwood’s Parker Mason returned the ensuing kickoff 82 yards for a touchdown. Beechwood’s rally came up short when they failed to recover an onside kick.
Oldham County 12, Fern Creek 7
Trailing 7-6 in the fourth quarter, the Colonels put together an impressive final drive to take down the Creekers. Grayson Huff caught a 15-yard touchdown in the waning minutes to give Oldham County the win on homecoming.
Owensboro’s Gavin Wimsatt threw for touchdowns of 23, 24 and 28 yards in a 55-0 Thursday night win over Muhlenberg County. The top 100 junior quarterback will go toe-to-toe with rival Owensboro Catholic next Friday.
