Friday's kickoffs


No. 17 Ballard (6-3) at No. 10 Bryan Station (6-3), 7:30 p.m.: If Bryan Station beats the Bruins, it can claim a No. 1 seed in the playoffs on a tiebreaker. Quarterback Andre Davis sat out the last quarter of last week's loss to Henry Clay with a groin injury. Defenders Coach Frank Parks said it's "50-50" on whether Davis will play against Ballard.

Lexington Catholic (6-3) at Boone County (1-8), 7:30 p.m.: The Knights have a five-game win streak, and Reese Ryan has increased his career passing totals to 6,600 yards and 71 TDs. Boone County has lost 29 of its last 31 games.

Mercer County (2-7) at Paul Laurence Dunbar (3-6), 7:30 p.m.: Since starting the season with three victories, Dunbar has dropped six in a row. Senior running back Jay Coleman needs 143 yards to reach 1,000 this season.

Walton-Verona (8-1) at Lexington Christian Academy (5-4), 7:30 p.m.: A matchup of 1,000-yard rushers. Walton-Verona has Mason Compton (1,101 yards, 21 TDs). LCA has Nick Whitman (1,691 yards, 25 TDs).


No. 25 Belfry (8-1) at No. 12 Johnson Central (9-0), 7:30 p.m.: Defending Class 3A champ Belfry's only loss last season was to Johnson Central.

No. 3 Bowling Green (8-1) at No. 21 Pulaski County (8-1), 7:30 p.m.: This is a rematch of last year's 5A finals, which Bowling Green won 49-14.

No. 1 Male (9-0) at No. 24 Louisville Christian (9-0), 7:30 p.m.: Last year, Male struggled to beat the Centurions 6-0, so don't think this is in any way a mismatch.
