This week’s OMEGA Processing Game of the Week features a double header in the Skyline Chili Crosstown Showdown at Dixie High School. Game 1 features NewCath vs. Cooper, and game 2 showcases CovCath vs. Dixie.
NewCath vs. Cooper – 6:00 PM
Last year, these two teams played in the State Finals in their respective class and should make for an interesting match-up this week. NewCath (Class 2A) is coming off a win from last week as they defeated Ashland Blazer 37-26. Cooper (Class 5A) lost a tight game to Ryle last week 17-10. This will be the first football game against each other for these two teams.
CovCath vs. Dixie – 8:30 PM
This will be Dixie’s season opener as CovCath already has a “W” in the books after last week’s win over Boone County 48-0. Dixie only had 3 wins last year but finished the year strong with wins over Simon Kenton, Ryle, and a heart-break loss to Henry Clay in the playoffs. Since 2005, the Dixie Colonels have only beaten the CovCath Colonels once (44-28 in 2007).
