Gameday Central | Tiger Football vs. Manual
Friday, October 17 | 7:30 PM | Male High School | Louisville, KY
St. Xavier Tigers (5-3) at Manual Crimsons (6-1)
Friday, October 17th
Varsity Game – 7:30 PM
Br. Thomas More Stadium
Manual lost their stud running back Michael Nero early in the season, but have continued to dominate opponents to date. The Crimsons fell to Trinity last week 14-3 and we all know who won the meeting between St. X and Trinity just two weeks ago. If you play the common opponent game, the edge goes to the Tigers in this one.
Every team matches up differently with each different opponent every week, so expect to get Manual’s best shot tonight. They have not defeated the Tiger Football team in 21 years and not a single player on either team was born when that happened. This will be the Crimsons best shot in a number of years so they will be highly motivated to pull off the upset.
Playoff implications are indeed a part of this one for the third week in a row! Seeding in the district will be finalized after tonight, so it is important to get the second district win here on our home turf.
