Playoff time

With regular season finished, teams hope to make postseason noise

(Continued)

CORBIN — Biggest surprise

I was surprised to see Corbin roll past Knox Central as easily as it did. The game was close until the end of the first half when the Redhounds scored, and the Panthers could never recover. It's a big win for Steve Jewell's squad and a big loss for the Panthers. This game might not have had any playoff implications, but it was meaningful because the winner of the game could gain even more momentum heading into the playoffs.

Making a statement

Williamsburg has flown under the radar in Class A the entire season, but now the Yellow Jackets are beginning to receive the attention they deserve.

If their 47-0 blow out over Pineville doesn't grab the attention of the Class A media, then I don't know what will. Pineville held its own against defending region champion Hazard last week, and Williamsburg led the mountain Lions, 47-0, at halftime before putting in reserves.

This team is good, folks.

Wait and see if the Yellow Jackets aren't the last Tri-County team standing when all is said and done.

No quit in South Laurel

I said it last week, and it's worth repeating this week — Matt Rhymer will turn things around at South Laurel.

The rebuilding process began in Week 0, and he has the Cardinals heading in the right direction. South Laurel picked up a huge come-from-behind win over Leslie County in Week 10, and will build on that in 2014.

Wait and see if the Cardinals don't make some noise next season.

Struggling at the wrong time

No team in the Tri-County needed a win Friday night more than Scott Russell's Knox Central Panthers.

Why?

Because the Panthers needed some momentum heading into the first round of the Class 4A playoffs, but they didn't get it. Now Knox Central is trying to find a way to not only end a two-game skid for the second time this season, but also find a way to score some points.

The Panthers will enter their game against Mercer County with an eight-quarter scoreless drought. The injury bug has taken its toll on Russell's squad.
