Friday Night Football is back in Northern Kentucky! Not only has the weather been warming up, but so have the teams as they begin another season of High School football action. And NKYSports.com is proud to announce our new partnership with OMEGA Processing as they’ll be our Title Sponsor this year!
Each week, NKYSports.com will be video webcasting an OMEGA Processing Game of the Week for football. You can see the complete webcast schedule by going to the webcasts link on the website. At the end of each game, we will select an OMEGA Processing Player of the Game and present them an OMEGA/NKYSports.com Player of the Game football jersey. NKYSports.com will also be webcasting various soccer and volleyball games throughout the fall season.
This week’s OMEGA Processing Game of the Week features the Walton-Verona (2A) Bearcats vs. the Bellevue Tigers (1A). Last year’s Walton-Verona team made it to the Quarterfinals of the playoffs before losing to NewCath and finishing 10-3. Bellevue lost in the second round of the playoffs last year to Frankfort and finished the season 7-5. Look for this game to be competitive as the two teams have split the past 4 games with the Home team winning each time (game is at Bellevue).
Cooper vs. Ryle
The Cooper Jaguars (5A) are coming off a magical 2012 season where they fell to Bowling Green in the Class 5A State Championship game 34-20. They’ll begin the 2013 season with a tough Ryle (6A) opponent, who the Jaguars beat last year 35-6 but don’t look for a discrepancy in score like that this year. The Raiders are coming off a disappointing 3-8 record from last year and will look to bounce back in the 2013 season.
University Christian FL vs. Highlands
Yes, the Highlands Bluebirds are back again and looking for their 7th straight State Title. No, that’s not a misprint – the Birds have won 6 straight titles and have the talent once again to do it again this year. Highlands will begin the 2013 football campaign on national television (ESPNU) this Saturday at 3:30 P.M. vs. University Christian FL, a team that won the Florida Class 2A State Championship last year.
