St. Xavier at Bowling Green, one of the state’s marquee matchups this week, was moved from Friday night to Saturday afternoon.
“Moving our game to Thursday was not an option in BG,” Bowling Green Coach Kevin Wallace tweeted. “BG’s Thursday forecast calls for thunderstorms & 3 inches of rain.” (sic)
Scott County’s home game against Highlands — another one of the state’s biggest matchups this weekend — has been moved from Friday to 7:30 p.m. Thursday. It will still be played at Georgetown College’s Toyota Stadium, where the Cardinals play all of their home games.

Bourbon County was originally scheduled to play at Madison Southern on Friday. That game is the second game of the Doc Sipple Bowl, which has been moved to Saturday. The first game of the double-header, Madison Central-Southwestern, will kick off at 5:30 p.m. Saturday.
Woodford County’s home game against Franklin County has been moved to Thursday. The football game will begin 30 minutes after the Franklin County-Woodford County boys’ soccer game is completed; that game is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Thursday.
Montgomery County will host Harrison County at 6 p.m. Saturday. That game was originally scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Friday at Harrison County.
