Some of the top performances from the second round of playoff football in Kentucky:

Andy Thompson and Donnie Morris, Lexington Catholic: Thompson, under center for the Knights all night, went 10-for-11 for 317 yards and became the first LexCath passer since 2005 to throw six touchdowns in a game.

Morris grabbed four of Thompson's completions, finishing with 193 yards and three scores.

Mason Alstatt, Lafayette: For the second straight week the Wofford commit played hero, busting out on a 58-yard score inside the last five minutes to put Lafayette up for good. He rushed for 203 yards and three touchdowns.

Dillon Wheatley, Lexington Christian: The sophomore became the first LCA rusher to eclipse 2,000 yards since 2009 with a 205-yard night at Shelby Valley. He finished with three touchdowns to lead the Eagles to victory.

Noah Hughes, Scott County: The Cardinals running back gashed Bryan Station for 245 yards and four touchdowns on 37 carries.

He managed to surpass his previous big night against the Defenders earlier this season. He finished with 242 yards and three scores on 36 carries in the first meeting.

Joquise Buford, Henry Clay: His 38 carries netted 211 yards and three TDs — including a go-ahead score in the fourth quarter — for the Blue Devils in a losing effort at Lafayette.

Rafael Few, Bryan Station: He reeled in four balls for 134 yards and two touchdowns for the Defenders in their loss at Scott County.
