Last Fridays result was not unexpected.
The trip to Louisville Ballard is a difficult one and certainly for a team that is in a down spell.
The Tigers may have lost, but the Bruins most definitely did not maul them.
The Hoptown offense struggled to move the football, something they will need to improve on this week against Mayfield. However, their defense held Ballard to just twenty two points. An accomplishment not many will be able to say this season.
Now as the Cardinal hunt begins, the Tigers will snap and clear.
PxP voice Jeff Sisk wrote “For the second straight week The Hopkinsville Tigers are on the road as they travel to Mayfield to take on The Cardinals. It will be the 69th meeting between the two schools with the series tied 33-33-2. Mayfield won last years contest 21 to 3. The Tigers enter the contest oh and 1 after a 22 to nothing loss to Louisville Ballard last week. Mayfield is 1 and oh after beating crosstown rival Graves Co. 36 to nothing.”
Who will walk away with a win tonight and a series advantage? Well tune in as the F&M Bank pregame show from Mayfield begins at 6:50pm on Newsradio 95.3 FM and 1230 AM WHOP and whopam.com. Kickoff is schedule for 7:30pm at War Memorial Stadium.
