friday's kickoffs

City games

Boone County (0-9) at No. 9 Lexington Catholic (6-3): Once-powerhouse Boone County is the only winless team in Class 6A. Lexington Catholic tunes up for next week's playoffs when it hosts Rockcastle County.

Bryan Station (4-4) at Ballard (4-5): Bryan Station quarterback Ora "Bo" Johnson is only 104 passing yards shy of 7,000 for his career. The Defenders, in a tiebreaker with Henry Clay and Paul Laurence Dunbar in the district, could possibly get a home playoff game if they beat Ballard.

Lexington Christian (1-8) at Walton-Verona (7-2): If it's any consolation to LCA, its eight losses have come against teams that are a combined 51-23, and none has a losing record. LCA travels to Prestonsburg for its playoff opener next week.

Paul Laurence Dunbar (5-4) at Mercer County (5-4): If Dunbar beats the Titans it will have six regular-season wins for the first time since 2005. The Bulldogs will play at Tates Creek in their playoff opener next week.

Top state games

No. 13 Johnson Central (9-0) at No. 24 Belfry (9-0): This is the seventh year in a row these mountain powers have met in the regular-season finale. Belfry won last year, but Johnson Central took three in a row before that and spoiled the Pirates' unbeaten regular season in 2011.

No. 21 Mayfield (9-0) at Caldwell County (9-0): Defending Class A champ Mayfield is riding a 23-game winning streak, including a 48-7 rout of Caldwell County last year. The Tigers bounced back from that loss to reach the 2A finals where they lost to Newport Central Catholic.
