Another Friday night has come and four teams will be back in action tonight, with some district implications at stake for some

Hopkinsville vs. Madisonville-North Hopkins, 7 p.m.

The Tigers are in a must-win situation tonight as they host the Maroons at the Stadium of Champions.

Hopkinsville sits 0-2 in Class 4A, District One, and needs a strong showing tonight against Madisonville to confirm a spot in the playoffs. Hopkins Central is quarantining due to COVID-19 and if RPI ratings hold, the Tigers will receive a win for a game against the Storm.

However, points have been hard to come by for Hopkinsville recently.

The Tigers have scored just 14 points in their last two games after scoring 81 points in their first two contests.

The Maroons have struggled after losing a big senior class and sit 1-3 on the season and 0-2 as well in district play.

South Warren vs. Christian County, 7 p.m.

The Christian County Colonels continue the gauntlet. After falling to No. 4 Bowling Green last week, they will travel to Bowling Green to face No. 2 South Warren.

The Colonels play in one of the toughest districts in the state and have another tall task ahead against the Spartans, who have yet to drop a game this season.

This will be County’s final district game of the year and will make the playoff regardless of the result. It is also the Colonels’ final tune-up prior to their matchup with Hopkinsville.

Union County vs. Trigg County, 7 p.m.

The Trigg County Wildcats travel to Morganfield tonight to try and grab another win when they face Union County.

Trigg is coming off a 63-34 win over Webster County, while the Braves are riding high from a 49-7 rout of Paducah Tilghman.

Defense has been a difficulty for the Wildcats thus far, giving up 38.1 points per game despite pitching a shutout in the season opener.

Union County is only averaging 18.8 PPG offensively this year, but may have figured things out on that side of the ball last week.

Marshall County vs. Todd County Central, 7 p.m.

Todd County Central look to move to 4-2 on the season when it hosts Marshall County.

The Rebels are coming off a 29-22 win over Butler County, whereas the Marshals are 2-4 on the season and fell 34-10 last week against Apollo. Marshall has won two of its last three games.
