Gameday Central | Highlands
St. Xavier Tigers (2-1) vs. Highlands Bluebirds (1-3)
Friday, September 16th
Brother Thomas More Stadium
In a matchup of the two great football powers in the state of Kentucky, the Tigers face off against the Highlands Bluebirds tonight at 7:30 PM. Both of these programs combine for over 1,600 wins, and 35 state championships. These programs programs are known for their great tradition, and fan bases, so this should turn out to be a fun game.
Returning from a two-game suspension last week, Desmond Ridder put on a show in a 51-7 rout of Central. On the first play from line of scrimmage, Ridder ran for a 73 yard touchdown. He finished the night with 5 touchdowns (three passing and two rushing.) Expect him to put up similar numbers for the Tiger Offense this week.
The Tiger Defense had their best game of the season, so far, aganist Central, allowing only a single touchdown. The Defense was tough all game, and consistently provided the Offense great field position. Although in a down year, Highlands is a team that can still put up numbers at any time, so the Tigers will look to remain on their A-game this week. \
