football helmet 300OWENSBORO, Ky. (10/18/13) – Both Owensboro and Owensboro Catholic took care of their opponents winning by a combined 110 – 14. Daviess County battled Henderson hard for the first half, but their defense struggled in the second half, giving up 28 points in the third quarter. They ultimately lost 41 - 12. This brings my record to 10 – 4 on the year. The Panthers and the Aces are home this week so I am expecting another strong week from the local teams.

Union County Braves at Owensboro Catholic Aces

This is by far the most important game for both teams this year. Entering the game tonight the Aces and the Braves are both undefeated in district play. This will most likely decide the district championship and home field advantage.

The Aces will have to play their A game, according to head football Coach John Edge. Union County is 6 – 1 entering tonight’s game, while the Aces are 5 – 2. The Aces are coming off a blowout win over district rival Hancock County. The Braves are coming off a blowout themselves against McLean County.

Owensboro Catholic and Union are playing great football currently. With such high tempo offenses, the team with the best defense will prevail. Catholic finally has almost all of their players healthy, so tonight expect long plays and high scores.

Prediction: Catholic’s defense comes up with a couple of big stops and wins 35 – 28.

McCracken County Mustangs @ Daviess County Panthers

Last week the Panthers were close at half time 13 – 12 against Henderson County. Then the second half started and Henderson ran away and hid to win 41 – 12. That same week McCracken thumped Marshall County 49 – 6. The Panthers enter tonight’s game 4 – 3 while the Mustangs are 5 – 2 and is riding into the game with a 5-game winning streak. .

Daviess County will have to play all four quarters if they are going stop the Mustangs. The challenge for the Panthers will be containing the speed and the size of McCracken. Head Coach Marcus Kimbrell for the Panthers told SurfKY, “Their quarterback is the best we have seen since Catholics quarterback.” So the Panther‘s defense will have to return to controlling the red zone.

Maybe some people see the Panthers getting blown out again. But tonight is Pink-out night for Daviess County and I still believe in what the DC is doing and they are getting better and better each week.

Prediction: Daviess County’s defense will have at least three red zone stops and will end another long win streak. Panthers prevail 27 – 20.
