|Friday Night Football is Back in Northern Kentucky
|8/21/2014 - by NKS Editor|
Yes, it's that time of the year again . . . Friday Night Football in Northern Kentucky. And NKYSports.com will once again be covering all the action with the OMEGA Processing Game of the Week, our LIVE Friday Night Scoreboard, Twitter updates, stats and much more!
Our first OMEGA Processing Game of the Week webcast won't start until next weekend, which features Walton-Verona at Newport, but there's still plenty of action going on for the first week of High School football.
Here's a quick look at the match-ups this weekend:
Ryle vs Cooper
The Raiders and Jaguars are both looking to rebound from last year's disappointing season. Ryle finished the season at 2-9 while Cooper ended their year with a 3-8 record. Ryle is 5-1 against Cooper and won last year 17-10. This should be a very competitive game and also kicks off the Skyline Chili Crosstown Showdown.
Holmes vs Holy Cross
The Covington rivalry continues this Friday as Holy Cross tries to improve from their 1-10 record from last year. Holmes finished 5-6 last year with some good wins but fell to Ashland Blazer in the playoffs 49-20. The Bulldogs are 5-2 against the Indians since 2005.
Collins vs Simon Kenton
The Pioneers will be tested right away with last year's Class 4A Champion Collins High School. Collins had defeated Highlands last year 37-34 in a classic State Championship game, and will now head to Simon Kenton on Friday. Simon Kenton should be strong again this year even with losing their star Quarterback, Brenan Kuntz. They finished the season 12-1 last year being knocked out by Butler 29-14 in the Class 6A Quarterfinals. The Pioneers defeated Collins last year in the first game of the season 23-21.
