Lloyd (5-5) at Gallatin County (6-4)
NewCath is still our favorite to win the Regional Championship and advance to the Final Four but their path might be a little tougher this season with another potential matchup against Holy Cross. NewCath lost to Mayfield last year in the State Championship 17-7.

The Eagles played Johnson Central in the State Quarterfinals last year and lost on a last second pass 27-26. It’s been a tough year for Scott though this season and Johnson Central will win this game easily.

Class 5A Playoffs
Fairdale (3-7) at CovCath (7-3)
Southern (4-6) at Dixie (5-5)
Highlands (3-7) at Doss (5-5)
If Highlands can get pass Doss we have the potential to see a re-match between Highlands and CovCath but this time in the second round of the playoffs. CovCath lost to Class 6A Scott County last week 35-28 but we expect them to make a good run in the playoffs this season.

The Class 6A Playoffs is stacked with really good teams from NKY! Ryle will take their undefeated season into the playoffs and they could possibly play Simon Kenton in Semfinals.
