NKY Round-Up: Cooper cruises to 2-0

For the second straight week the Cooper defense paced the way for a victory, coming up with three big turnovers against the visiting Thoroughbreds, including interceptions by Jeremiah Lee and Zach Armour.

Lee added 95 yards and a rushing score on 13 carries and four catches for 72 yards and another TD receiving. Quarterback Drew Warth completed 7-of-17 passes for 101 yards in the win.

With the victory the Jaguars move to 2-0 for the first time since 2015.

NewCath’s lone score of the game came on a fourth-quarter 80-yard TD run by junior Joey Runyan. The Breds’ move to 1-1 with the loss.


The Ryle Raiders shook off last week’s tough loss to CovCath in a big way by, running past the Conner Cougars 34-10 on the final Friday night of August.

Senior running back Kyle England led the way for the Raiders and the Ryle defense did the rest, limiting the Cougars to just one offensive scoring drive in the game.

England finished the night with rushing scores from 16, 23, 46, and 15 yards out. Teammate Elijah Cusick added a 16-yard of his own in the win.

Michael Mayer scored on a 29-yard run on Covington Catholic’s first offensive play and the Colonels wouldn’t look back. Mayer would score three-first half touchdowns and the running clock would begin before the break.

Caleb Jacobs completed 9-of-12 passes for 131 passing yards in limited action to pace the CovCath passing attack.

The Colonels outgained the Camels in the first half with 283 total yards of offense compared to -38 for the home team.


The Bearcats bounced back from a tough Week 0 home loss to Lloyd by shutting out Holy Cross on the road. Peyton Smith led the way on the ground for Walton-Verona with 104 yards and a TD on 15 carries and Jacob Gaines added 115 additional yards and a score on seven totes.

The Indians came up empty after scoring 30 points a week ago against a determined Bearcats’ defense led by Robert Streine, who contributed with a pair interceptions in the win. It marked the 15th shutout turned in by Walton-Verona defense since 2015.
