Games to Watch
Pulaski County 43 vs Henry Clay 0
If there was a team of the week, it would be Pulaski County. Playing without Joquise Buford, Henry Clay only managed 39 total yards on a rainy night in Somerset. Pulaski County forced three turnovers as they pitched their second shutout of the season. George Gregory ran for 160 yards and a touchdown and Mason Helton scored twice on 42 yards to lead Pulaski County to a huge win over a 6A foe. Look for the Maroons to make a move towards the top spot in 5A.
Lafayette 19 vs Bryan Station 12
I said that everyone would find out about Walker Wood this week when I picked Lafayette to hand Bryan Station their second loss. Wood ran for two touchdowns and 141 yards in Lafayette’s win Friday night. Mason Alstett added 135 yards as Lafayette ran all over Bryan Station’s defense.
Danville 44 vs Campbellsville 6
Another undefeated season comes to an end as Campbellsville was blown out in Danville last night. Campbellsville put up 63 yards of offense against the Admirals. Even more impressive is that Danville allowed -20 in the first half. The Admirals have allowed six points in their last three games after posting back-to-back shutouts. Danville is now 5-1 with their only loss being to Boyle County.
Trinity 20 vs St. Xavier 15
In the biggest game in the state, Trinity prevailed to give them a 40-37-2 lead in the all-time series against St. X. The story of this year’s game was Jailen Reed and Jacob Woosley. Reed scored three first half touchdowns and ran for a total of 144 yards. Woosley played the role of game manager, completing 21 of 25 passes to keep the pace against St. X. Desmond Ridder threw three interceptions and Trinity escaped with a five point win.
