Republic Bank Game of the Week
This week's Game of the Week features a double-header in the Skyline Crosstown Showdown featuring Covington Catholic vs. Dixie Heights (6:30 PM) and Simon Kenton vs. Beechwood (8:30), both games are being played at Dixie.
Last week, it was a tale of two stories for CovCath and Dixie. CovCath had its way with Campbell County with a 42-2 win, while Dixie lost 42-13 to NewCath in their home opener. Dixie was without their starting QB though, Zeke Pike, and he's back to help get Dixie back into the win column. Since 2005, CovCath is 6-1 against Dixie and won last year 40-36.
