Friday's kickoffs

City games

Clark County (2-5) at Tates Creek (3-5), 7:30 p.m.: When Tates Creek beat the Cardinals in double overtime in 2007, it was the Commodores' 11th win in the last 12 games of the rivalry. Times have changed. Clark County has won five of the last six.

Lexington Christian Academy (4-3) at Somerset (0-7), 7:30 p.m.: After averaging 11 victories a season over the last five years, Somerset is winless. This is the first time since 1998 the Briar Jumpers have lost seven games. LCA is coming off a big win over Middlesboro, thanks to Nick Whitman, who ran for 289 yards and five touchdowns.

Madison Central (3-5) at No. 15 Lafayette (5-3), 7:30 p.m.: Korrion Crier and Johan Williams have each rushed for more than 600 yards. They combined for 300 yards and four TDs in last week's win over Tates Creek. Lafayette has a dynamic running duo, too, in Walker Wood and Malik Robinson, who've combined for 1,650 yards and 20 TDs.

Paul Laurence Dunbar (3-4) at No. 13 Henry Clay (5-2), 7:30 p.m.: This will be a matchup of two of the fastest backs in the state: Dunbar's Jay Coleman (724 yards, nine TDs) and Henry Clay's Joquise Buford (1,034 yards, 16 TDs). The Blue Devils will have a new quarterback after Rhoman James suffered a shoulder injury in last week's loss to Scott County. He could be out 3-4 weeks. Henry Clay Coach Sam Simpson said junior C.J. Tackett and sophomore Legend Brumbaugh "are both capable of moving the offense and doing what we need them to do. We're planning on being the same team we are."

No. 3 Scott County (7-0) at No. 10 Bryan Station (5-2), 7:30 p.m.: Scott County Coach Jim McKee thinks this is Bryan Station's best team since Eric Shelton led the Defenders to the 1999 state finals. Bryan Station's passing game will be put to the test by Scott County's physical defense. The Defenders must find a way to slow Scott County's running attack. The Cards lead the state in rushing, averaging 360 yards. Defending Class 6A champ Scott County has a 22-game winning streak, and has won 22 consecutive games against Lexington opponents over the past five seasons.
