Last week five area teams were in the playoffs. For tonight's second round, we are down to three - Boyle County, Danville and Garrard County - playing their own version of Survivor with the scoreboard doing the only voting that counts.
How many will still be playing next week?
Waggener (10-1) at Boyle (9-2): For the second straight week, the Rebels will see one of the state's top players. Last week it was Fairdale running back-defensive back Maurice Grinter, who had no success against Boyle. Tonight running back Alfonso Smith, a player Kentucky would love to have, will get his chance to test Boyle's improving defense.
Waggener's speed worries Boyle coach Chuck Smith, but if the Rebels play defense like they have the last month they should not have any problems stopping Waggener.
Besides, Waggener has not see an offense anywhere close to as good as the one it is going to see tonight. Boyle quarterback Brandon Smith will go over the 8,000-yard passing mark tonight, something only nine other Kentucky players have ever done.
