Every Monday in the fall I'll recap notable events and performances that you might have missed from over the weekend. If you think I missed something, email me at email@example.com or hit me up on Twitter @HLpreps:
Some leftover nuggets from Friday and Saturday’s action:
The Herald-Leader provided statistical highlights from that game and two others, North Laurel vs. Harrison County and Bowling Green vs. Christian County, on Saturday.
Trinity is ranked 45th nationally by MaxPreps as of this post. Brentwood is ranked 47th.
“It was new for me,” Williams told the Herald-Leader. “I’d never played quarterback. It was kind of a spur of the moment thing.” The LCC star, who sports an offer from Morehead State and has already rushed for over 600 yards this season, credits his parents, Wendell and Janice Williams, for helping him with everything he’s done.
Cole Stetson threw 59 timesfor Calloway, connecting 26 times for 323 yards and two TDs. He also threw three picks. Jeramaiah Malone had 126 receiving yards on 11 catches while Cody Orr reeled in six passes for 102 yards and a TD.

The biggest battle of the weekend was between Owensboro Catholic and Sacred Heart on Saturday. The Aces, ranked No. 1 in the newest poll, went to Louisville and beat the Valkyries 2-1.
Lexington Catholic got a win that’ll likely vault it into the top five this week. The Knights hosted and defeated No. 3 Notre Dame, 3-1. Kennedy Tranter, a sophomore committed to Kentucky, scored two goals, both off Alana Hughes assists. Hughes, a senior, scored LexCath’s other goal.
Another top-10 Saturday matchup had No. 7 West Jessamine hosting No. 4 Assumption. The Rockets got a 3-0 win on the road with goals by Rachael Reisert, Abby Spalding and Maddie Spencer.
Elsewhere, Lexington Christian defeated Sayre 3-2 to claim the 11th Region All “A” Classic on Friday.

LCA’s opponent for the next stage of the tournament is yet to be determined.
After starting its season off winless, Bryan Station has won its prior two games in big fashion. The Defenders (2-2-1) upended Garrard County 7-1 on Thursday before shutting out Boyd County 4-0 on Saturday. Simone Bibbs, a sophomore, scored three goals against Garrard County.
