Football is finally here. Thank God. Anyone who knows me understands just how much I dislike baseball and Soccer. A few surprises as teams got their first game under their belt.
Keeping in mind it is hard and probably not smart to judge a team by their first game but I do think it is a pretty good indicator of how some teams may stack up.
Fort Campbell has reloaded. They defeated CPA out of TN by a score of 55-6. Mayfield surprised a lot of folks by defeating Marshall County 43-14. Some other surprises were Trigg County losing to Union City, TN 45-6, Caldwell County defeating Calloway Co. 34-7. Russellville battled Franklin-Simpson to the end but fell 28-27.
Bobby Redman's Louisville Male routed E-Town 66-14. Bobby got the engine going early. Former Hopkinsville mentor Craig Clayton led his Franklin, TN Rebels to a victory over Battle Ground Academy (BGA) 14-10. This was the first ever meeting between the two schools surprising since only a few hundred yards separates the two.
Murray dropped Madisonville 21-6. Hopkinsville defeated Paducah 17-14 at Paducah. Christian County fell to Bowling Green 22-3.
It would appear that Fort Campbell, Mayfield and Bowling Green are the teams to watch early in West Kentucky. Christian County who was State Runner-up must survive a tough schedule which includes Franklin, TN and PRP, Hopkinsville and Owensboro.
Hopkinsville will face Fort Campbell in their last season game as Fort Campbell looks to claim another State Championship.
