|9/22/2016 - by NKS Editor|
The OMEGA Processing / ProScan Imaging Game of the Week webcast features Beechwood (3-1) vs Holy Cross (3-1) on Friday.
Beechwood lost to CovCath last week 44-10 while Holy Cross defeated Scot 27-0. This should be a very good game as Holy Cross has improved tremendously this season and their defense has been stingy.
The Tigers are led by Sophomore QB Brayden Burch and Senior RB Aiden Justice. Burch has thrown for 584 yards and 5 TD’s while Justice has run for 208 yards and 1 TD. The Indians are led by the running back duo of Senior’s Derrick Barnes and Xavier Abernathy. Barnes has rushed for 421 yards and 8 TD’s and Abernathy has rushed for 228 yards and 3 TD’s.
This game is being played at Covington Catholic and since 2005 Holy Cross has never beaten Beechwood.
You can watch this game LIVE starting at 7:00 PM on NKYSports.com!
