Weather forces changes in schedule of Ky. high school football championships

December 6, 2013 

Scott County's Keith Guy (40) is one of three Cardinals to have rushed for more than 1,000 yards this season.


The Kentucky High School Athletic Association has changed its schedule of state football championships in Bowling Green to accommodate forecasts calling for bad weather.

The Scott County-Meade County Class 6A championship game has been moved to Saturday and the Bowling Green-Pulaski County Class 5A game has moved to Sunday.

The Collins-Highlands Class 4A game has been pushed earlier Saturday.

"Though there are dozens of factors that went into the schedule revisions, the first and foremost concerns have been competitor safety, and the travel needs of the entire school communities, especially the evenings when ice is highly anticipated. All 12 schools through their senior administration, have been involved in the lengthy discussions about options," according to a press release on the KHSAA website.

"In the end, the teams have committed at this time to being able to accommodate the schedule changes," the KHSAA release said. The games will be streamed live on through the channel.

The revised schedule will be as follows (all times Eastern):

12 p.m. Friday - Class 1A- Mayfield vs. Williamsburg (as scheduled)

4 p.m. Friday - Class 3A- Wayne County vs. Belfry (as scheduled)

12 p.m. Saturday - Class 2A- DeSales vs. Newport Central Catholic (as scheduled)

3 p.m. Saturday - Class 4A- Collins vs. Highlands

6 p.m. Saturday - Class 6A- Meade County vs. Scott County

3 p.m. Sunday - Class 5A- Bowling Green vs. Pulaski County
