Bluebirds Football Update

While the final score was not impressive when you consider they started seniors that are not normal starters against one of the better teams in Northern Kentucky (ranked #8 in the Herald Leader poll) then it was a great way to end the season.  Being a spectator at the game I saw quite possibly the best high school kick when Weinel kicked a 47 yard kick with a good 10 yards to spare.

With the win they finish the season undefeated and move into the state playoffs.  In the first round they face a 3-7 Montgomery County and then play what may be their toughest test prior to the finals in Blazer with a record of 9-1.  A possible rematch with Cov Cath could come next.  A possible semifinal matchup with Pulaski Southwestern and then everyone's dream matchup of Highlands and John Hardin in the state 5A Finals.  You can see the entire bracket here.

As far as a rankings update - none of the teams above Highlands lost and the St X win over Moeller didn't appear to carry much weight.

USATODAY - 9 still no change
ESPN - 13 still no change
Rivals - 15 (up from 22)
