Local teams close out regular season Friday

By ALEX WILLIAMS State Journal Sports Writer Published:

The regular season will come to an end Friday night for the local football teams, with all three squads wanting to go out on a high note.

For Frankfort High and Franklin County, that means putting the finishing touches on their campaigns as they prepare for the state playoffs.

For Western Hills, that means wanting to end things in a positive way as the Wolverines will take what they've learned this fall into next season.

Here's a look at Friday's matchups.

Trimble Co. (0-9, 0-4)

at No. 12 Frankfort (7-2, 3-1)

There is one more challenge for the Frankfort High School football team before it embarks on its playoff challenge, and it comes in the form of the winless Trimble County Raiders.

While FHS is excited about the possibility of making noise in the playoffs, it knows it can't look past Trimble. TCHS is a team that has given the Panthers a challenge in the past, and for a team that has nothing to lose it will look to catch FHS off guard and register its only win of the season. However, FHS coach Craig Foley is aware his team may take TCHS as a bump in the road so he's instilled the notion to his team to not take the Raiders lightly.

"They know they have to come out and play football," Foley said. "We've been stressing to them that Trimble has nothing to lose. They can go with every fake punt, go for every fourth down, play whatever they need to play. This is their playoff game, to try and play spoiler to us. I think we've done a pretty good job getting that across."
