Owensboro Catholic at Apollo

Kickoff: 7 p.m.

Site: Eagle Stadium.

Records: Owensboro Catholic 5-2. Apollo 3-3.

Radio: WLME-FM 102.7.

Last year: Apollo won 56-35.

What to watch: This matchup should be interesting. Apollo went to the ground game and upended Daviess County, 40-34, last week to end the Panthers’ seven-game winning streak in the county rivalry. Catholic’s defense may not be able to get Apollo’s offense off the field either. Catholic has utilized Braden Mundy in the passing game for 382 yards and eight touchdowns on 27 catches. Lincoln Clancy has thrown for nearly 1,000 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Daviess County at Warren East

Kickoff: 7 p.m.

Site: Bowling Green.

Records: Daviess County 2-4. Warren East 2-4.

Radio: None locally.

Last year: Daviess County won 28-27.

What to watch: The Panthers are looking at this game as a way to recover from a difficult loss to Apollo. They should have success with quarterback Joe Humphreys and running back Bryson Parm. Humphreys threw for 212 yards and Parm ran for 200 more against Apollo. Nolan Ford has been at quarterback the last two games for Warren East. Ford has passed for 283 yards and four touchdowns in those two losses.

Radio: WVJS-FM 92.9.

Last year: Owensboro won 42-0.

What to watch: This will be the regular-season finale for the Red Devils, since they dropped the Henderson County game over COVID-19 concerns. OHS will simply be trying to get a win and get off the field with no injuries Friday night. OHS is No. 5 in Class 5-A, and more importantly has the top RPI in 5-A in the state. Gavin Wimsatt has thrown for 1,371 yards and 14 touchdowns for the Red Devils.

Site: Frank Barnes Stadium, Hartford.

Radio: WXMZ-FM 99.9

What to watch: Ohio County has two more chances to hang another win on the ledger, and it has to regroup from a difficult 20-19 loss to Breckinridge County last week. Q’Dariyus Jennings has rushed for 720 yards and seven touchdowns, but the Eagles have generated little offense otherwise.

Muhlenberg County at Ballard Memorial

Site: Barlow.

Records: Muhlenberg County 0-5. Ballard Memorial 0-6.

Radio: WKYA-FM 105.5.
