BY NEIL SCHMIDT

It's the Dixie Highway Holy War. Beechwood and Covington Catholic, a mile apart, renew their rivalry tonight.
Beechwood (2-1) has beaten its big-brother neighbor five consecutive seasons.
We don't have their number, Beechwood coach Mike Yeagle said. They're a great football team.
CovCath (2-2) will be trying to earn coach Lynn Ray his 200th career victory. We just need to start jelling as a team, Ray said.
Beechwood and CovCath are close cousins in football royalty: The Tigers have won seven Class A crowns; CovCath has five AAA titles.
Other top N.Ky. games tonight:
Ryle (3-0), ranked No.5 in the Class 4A state poll, visits No.2 Lexington Henry Clay (4-0).
Conner (2-1), playing host to Boone County (0-3), could end its 16-year losing streak against its county rival.
