Heading into the second round of the Kentucky State Football Playoffs, twelve NKY teams remain. Three teams will definitely be eliminated as the week showcases 3 games with NKY teams going against each other.
This week’s Game of the Week features the Lloyd Memorial Juggernauts (5-6) against the Newport Central Catholic Thoroughbreds (10-1) in the second round of the playoffs. Last week, Lloyd beat Walton-Verona 13-0 to advance while the Breds won easily over Gallatin County 56-0. These two teams met earlier in the year with NewCath winning 45-14. Lloyd was able to avenge an earlier loss to Walton-Verona but will they have enough to defeat the Breds who have beaten the Juggernauts six straight games since 2007.
