City games

Bryan Station (1-0) at Highlands (2-0): Highlands has a 47-game winning streak at home against Kentucky competition, including a narrow escape (28-22) of Bryan Station in the first round of the Class 5A playoffs in 2008.

Lincoln County (0-2) at Lexington Christian (1-1): Lincoln County assistant Mickey Goodwin died from injuries suffered in a motorcycle accident last Friday, so the Patriots have had it rough.

Bowling Green (1-0) at St. Xavier (2-0): Bowling Green is the only Kentucky school besides Trinity to beat St. X since 2007. The Purples have done it two years in a row as part of their 31-game winning streak.
