BULLITT CENTRAL (4-2) AT BULLITT EAST (1-5)
Cougars captured last year’s meeting, 21-20 in OT
* Kickoff: 7:30 p.m. Friday.
* Bullitt Central dropped its second in a row last week, falling to rival North Bullitt 47-44. The Cougars are averaging 39.3 points per game and have the state’s leaders in passing yards per game (senior Cameron Dukes, 313.1 ypg) and receiving yards per game (senior Chase Craddock, 127 ypg). Dukes has thrown 17 touchdown passes and rushed for seven more scores.
* Bullitt East got its first victory of the season last week with a 35-6 win over Nelson County as senior Cameron Dossey rushed for 161 yards and two touchdowns on 26 carries. Dossey (423 yards, four TDs), senior Allen Miles (333 yards, one TD) and sophomore Hunter Perdue (305 yards, three TDs) spearhead the Chargers’ rushing attack. Coach Darrell Vincent said Perdue likely is out with a hip pointer.
* Quotable: “Part of the reason we played teams like Collins early on was to get some experience against teams that like to spread it around in preparation for some teams in our district,” Vincent said. “We took some lumps early because of inexperience, but I think our secondary is starting to play much better. But Dukes is the best quarterback we’ve faced. He’s gotten better every year.”
* The pick: Bullitt Central 31-27.
