NKYSports.com HS Football Game of the Week
The NKYSports.com Game of the Week webcast features Beechwood (6-3) at Newport Central Catholic (8-1) Saturday night. Last week Beechwood defeated Bellevue 52-7 while NewCath beat Lloyd 56-7. Even though these two teams are no longer in the same District, the strong rivalry continues. NewCath has won the last 4 games between the two teams, and won last year 26-22. The Beechwood vs NewCath Broadcast will begin at 7:00 P.M.
Highlands at Ryle
Round two begins Thursday night between Highlands (9-0) and Ryle (8-1). Earlier this year (Week 2), the Bluebirds beat the Raiders 29-14. The Raiders haven't lost since, but neither have the Bluebirds. Ryle will have home field advantage this time but will it be enough against top rated Highlands? This game will be televised on Fox Sports Net.
Cooper at Newport
This game has no playoff implications but could be the highest scoring game this weekend in Northern Kentucky. Both teams have offensive fire power but lack in defense so get ready for a shootout. Cooper (2-7) defeated Newport (5-4) last year 27-12.
