Bell County defeats McCreary Central 59-6

The Bobcats wasted little time taking control in the final regular season district game of the year. It’s been another tough year for the Raiders as their losing streak has now stretched to 27 straight. They last won back in August of 2012. They have one game remaining in their season. They’ll play at 7-2 Estill County next week.

Bell County will close out the regular season next Thursday night at Harlan County. The Bobcats will later host Henry County in the first round of Kentucky’s Class 3A playoffs.

Here are a few shots of Friday night’s game from Ray Welch.

Could Taylor Co. w/Coach Dudley Hilton open the 4A playoffs at Knox Central? It’s possible……..

Class A – Region 3
Jenkins at #1 Williamsburg
Berea at Harlan
Pineville at Campbellsville
Lynn Camp at #1 Hazard

Class AA – Region 4
Betsy Lane at #1 Danville
Middlesboro at TBD
TBD at Lexington Christian
Somerset at #1 TBD
*TBD slots must be determined by tiebreakers
as all three teams finished 2-1 in their district
(Leslie Co., Prestonsburg, Shelby Valley)

Because some of the games on these team’s schedules involve out of state teams, it makes it a little more difficult to go through the tiebreaker process. The initial runthrough has Middlesboro traveling to Shelby Valley for the opening round.

Class AAA – Region 2
Casey County at #1 Central
Henry County at Bell County
Wayne County at Elizabethtown
LaRue County at #1 Corbin

Class AAAA – Region 3
Clay County at #1 Lexington Catholic
PROJECTION: Marion County at Rockcastle County
Russell County at Boyle County
PROJECTION: Taylor County at #1 Knox Central
These final two slots must be determined by tiebreakers
as three teams finished 2-1 in their district. We’re projecting

Marion County is the #3 and Taylor County the #4 seed.

This is not official and final seeding will come from KHSAA

after going through their tiebreaker scenarios.

Class AAAAA – Region 4
Perry Central at Southwestern
North Laurel at Whitley County
Harlan County at Pulaski County
Madison Southern at Letcher Central

UK Football: (10/22/14) Wednesday practice report

As a defensive coordinator in the Southeastern Conference, every week presents unique challenges to Kentucky’s D.J. Eliot.

Eliot, in his second year directing the UK defense, faces another daunting task on Saturday as the Wildcats play host to Heisman Trophy frontrunner Dak Prescott and the top-ranked Mississippi State Bulldogs at 3:30 p.m. on CBS.

“He’s an excellent player. He’s a veteran player. He’s been there,” Eliot detailed about MSU’s junior quarterback. “He’s gotten those reps that’s made him such a great player. He can run it; he can throw it; he makes good decisions. It’s going to be a huge challenge for us. We’ve been working really hard to defend him this week. We know they’re a great offense and it’s going to be a huge challenge for us.” Continue reading: UK Football: (10/22/14) Wednesday practice report

Not me , but I’ll be the first to admit I didn’t vision the train wreck that happened .
