CovCath (4-6) at Harrison Co. (7-3)
Today's N.Ky. playoff matchup
WHEN: 7:30 p.m. today
WHERE: Harrison County High School, 550 Webster Ave., Cynthiana
WHAT TO WATCH: Covington Catholic needs to win three playoff games to avoid its first losing season since going 5-6 in 1980. But its record is only a cosmetic issue: CovCath is seventh in the Litkenhous AAA ratings and as capable of a long playoff run as nearly anyone.
I tell the kids the record doesn't matter, coach Lynn Ray said. There's five games left in the season.
Ray says this is one of the toughest first-round foes he can remember facing. The Thorobreds are riding a five-game winning streak and have the home-field advantage.
CovCath needs senior QB Brett Dietz (1,691 yards, 10 TDs) to be on target tonight.
PICK: Covington Catholic
