KCD over Eminence; (KCD won 57-13), 2-0;

Newport Central Catholic over Ludlow; (Newport Central won 45-7), 3-0;

Pikeville dismantles Hazard; (Couldn’t have been more wrong here, Hazzard won 21-12, anyone get this one outside of Coach Howard’s locker-room?) 3-1;

Williamsburg dismantles Pineville; (Williamsburg won 49-13), 4-1;

Paintsville over Raceland; (Picked this in my article forecasting 2nd-round upsets, Paintsville won 28-21), 5-1;

Holy Cross over Bethlehem; (Holy Cross won 28-27), 6-1;

Class 2A;

Beechwood all over Lloyd Memorial; (Beechwood won 38-0), 7-1;

Breathitt over Leslie; (Breathitt won 41-19), 8-1;

Edmonson over Metcalfe; (Metcalfe won 34-27), 8-2;

Owensboro Catholic in a bit of an upset over Hancock County; (Owensboro Catholic won 27-26), 9-2;

Lexington Christian ends Somerset’s defense of its title; (Lexington Christian won 42-36), 10-2;

Walton-Verona over Carroll County; (Walton Verona won 34-0), 11-2;

We like Murray High over Mayfield in another upset; (Murray won 28-21), 12-2;

West Carter should handle Shelby Valley; (West Carter did “handle” Shelby Valley, 48-18), 13-2;

Class 3A;

Ashland Blazer over Russell; (Ashland Blazer won 10-7), 14-2;

Elizabethtown over Bardstown but careful here E-Town; (E-Town won 35-28), 15-2;

Fleming County will smoke Pendleton; (Fleming County did “smoke” Pendleton 39-0), 16-2;

We will take CAL in a bit of an upset over Mercer County though this is an evenly matched football game; (CAL upset Mercer County 23-7), 17-2;

We like “the Rock” to upend Bell County. This game is a “pick ’em,” like the one before it, and could go either way; (Bell County won 13-6), 17-3;

Taylor County over Glasgow; (Glasgow won 14-0), 17-4;

We’ll take Paducah’s “Blue Tornado” to upset Union County (don’t believe Union beats them twice); (Union did beat PT twice, this time 35-21), 17-5;

Over in our article setting forth potential upsets, we took Murray High to upend Mayfield; (Murray won 28-21), 18-5;

Class 4A;

Two programs who generally don’t see this game. We like ACS over Warren East; (ACS won 28-13), 19-5;

Boyle County over Lexington Catholic; (Boyle County won 49-41), 20-5;

Central is mighty good, then again so is Fred Farrier and the Flyers from Franklin County. Maybe the best game at this level. We think the Flyers get by but barely; (Flyers from Franklin County won 42-6, didn’t see such a blowout but good job to Ledford’s crew), 21-5;

Corbin will absolutely run Knox Central off the field. Ethan Mills has had quite a career as a high school running-back for Knox Central. (Corbin ran the clock, 41-0), 22-5;

Those boys from E-Town, KY can flat out ball. We’ll take John Hardin over Spencer County; (John Hardin won 41-0), 23-5;

Don’t ask us why, but we see Hopkinsville turning around the 31-7 they suffered to Logan County during the regular season. This is a good Logan squad but Hopkinsville has so many athletes at its disposal. We are picking the “Jimmies and Joes” over the “X’s and O’s.” Hoptown survives! (Hoptown’s “Jimmies and Joes” won 42-20), 24-5;

Letcher County Central has had a great season and has a really fine ball club. Unfortunately, they find themselves contending with the classification’s bully. Johnson Central will run them clear out of Johnson County. (Johnson Central ran Letcher out of Johnson County 50-0), 25-5;

Man, Boyd County isn’t even supposed to be here…Rowan County will show them why that is so…Rowan County wins convincingly, good-night, Cinderella, the balls over for you. (Rowan County won 18-6, but Boyd County earned some respect from us…good season Boyd!), 26-5;

Class 5A;

Covington Catholic over Highlands; (Covington Catholic won 38-21), 27-5;

Fairdale over Bullitt Central; (Fairdale won 28-7), 28-5;

Woodford County in an upset over Madison Southern; (Madison Southern slipped by Woodford, 23-21), 28-6;

South Oldham over North Bullitt; (North Bullitt won 19-7), 28-7;

Owensboro (Senior) High wins by as many as it wants; (Well, Senior won 28-21 but Graves showed it certainly wasn’t a “pushover”), 29-7;

Pulaski County knocks off Southwestern; (Southwestern put it all over Pulaski County, 35-14), 29-8;

Freddy Douglass takes out Scott County in a mild upset; (Douglass won 39-21), 30-8;

BG upsets South Warrren; (BG pasted South Warren, 41-24), 31-8;

Class 6A;

We look for Oldham County to knock-off Bryan Station; (Bryan Station routed Oldham County 58-29), 31-9;

St. Xavier ends DuPont Manual’s season; (St. X won 10-6), 32-9;

McCracken County upsets Henderson; (Covid Canellation, McCracken advances, scratch).

Male over Bullitt East; (Male won 57-7), 33-9;

North Hardin murders Meade County; (North Hardin “murdered” Meade County, 36-7), 34-9;

Dunbar over Henry Clay; (Dunbar won 35-6), 35-9;

Dixie Heights upsets Ryle; (Dixie Heights upset Ryle, 41-36), 36-9;

Trinity beats Louisville Eastern by a hundred should they choose. (Trinity chose not to win by a hundred, but they did elect to win 49-7), 37-9;
