basic football4_300OWENSBORO, Ky. (10/11/13) – Last week did not go as planned for me going 1 – 2 which brings my record to 8 - 3. Congratulations the Panthers for beating South Warren and proving everyone wrong, including me.

Calloway County Lakers @ Owensboro Red Devils

Owensboro struggled the whole night last week against Warren Central and lost to the Dragons 28 – 7, after two late touchdowns sealed the deal. Owensboro (5 – 2) regained their work ethic and should be ready for this week's game. Devils head coach Joe Prince is excited to see how his players will perform after a great week of practice. Owensboro must take the momentum early and look to create turnovers.

Calloway County (4 – 2) comes in with some confidence after beating 0 – 7 Hopkins County Central. They are still trying to find an identity on offense, which could hurt the Lakers this late in the season. In their four wins this year they have outscored their opponents 139 – 18.

If Owensboro can slow down the Lakers offense they will control the game. Never count the Red Devils out of the game if it is close. With their speed anything can happen, expect some big hits from the refocused Devils.

Prediction: Owensboro gets back on track and wins 28 – 21.

Daviess County Panthers @ Henderson County Colonels

If you were at the Panthers game last week, you saw a great defense shut down and unbeaten South Warren team. Daviess County (4 – 2) has made improved each week and now they have a lot momentum riding four straight wins. Henderson (5 – 1) has been playing great football themselves winning two straight games. Their only loss came to a 7 – 0 Highland team that is ranked third in the state.

Daviess County is playing major defense and quarterback Luke Bailey is having a great senior season. He's completing almost 55 percent of his passes, with only four interceptions for the year. The improving Panthers look completely different from their first two games of the season. If DCs defense plays like they did last week, the Colonels will leave the game asking, "What if?" Expect another low scoring defensive battle for both teams.

Prediction: Daviess County will surprise even more people by winning 17 – 10.

Owensboro Catholic Aces @ Hancock County Hornets

Owensboro Catholic dominated Todd County Central last week to become 4 – 2. While Hancock (1- 5) got their first win of the year against McLean County last week. Don't let the Hornet's record fool you: both teams are 1 – 1 in the district, so this game will go a long way to deciding the district champion.

Owensboro Catholic is finally getting healthy, which is bad news for the remaining teams on their schedule. Coach Edge has their players focused and ready to play. If Catholic's Aces maintain the same mentality as they did last week, they might shutout another opponent. A win for Hancock will make them forget their record, at least for one night. This is huge rivalry for both teams, so expect a lot of passion from the Aces and the Hornets.

Prediction: Owensboro Catholic will contain Hancock's running game and will win 35 – 14.
