There was a problem reporting this.
The wife and I went to the game as I wanted to see how my Class 4A Flyers would fare against the juggernaut Class 6A Bruins, with many of their 2000 students in attendance. The Bruins were undefeated having just come off of an upset when against powerhouse Louisville Male the previous Friday, where the held Male to just 6 points. No team this year has scored more than 10 points against the Bruins. They’ve held two opponents scoreless and blowouts this year.
The obvious size disparity was evident during warm-ups. They looked like a small college team, only faster.
It was tough to watch as they dominated every aspect of the game, injuring at least 3 of our players including our QB1 Hurst.
They could’ve run up the score in the second half even more, but took out the starters in the third quarter. Ballard will be playing mighty St. X soon, which the CJ thinks they have a good chance if beating. They will also play 5A Woodford County later, which I predicted they will beat the yellow jackets handily!
State-Journal.com’s comments forum is for civil, constructive dialogue about news topics in our community, state, nation and world. We emphasize “civil” at a time when Americans, in the words of the current president, need to “turn down the temperature” of political debates. The State Journal will do its part by more carefully policing this forum. Here are some rules that all commenters must agree to follow:
Absolutely no attacks on other commenters, on guest columnists or on authors of letters to the editor. Our print and online opinion pages are sacred marketplaces of ideas where diverse viewpoints are welcome without fear of retribution. You may constructively critique the ideas and opinions of others, but name-calling, stereotyping and similar attacks are strictly prohibited.
Leeway will be given for criticism of elected officials and other public figures, but civility is essential. If you focus your criticism on ideas, opinions and viewpoints, you will be less likely to run afoul of our commenting rules.
Keep comments focused on the article or commentary in question. Don’t use an article about the Frankfort City Commission, for example, to rant about national politics.
Hyperpartisanship that suggests anyone on the other side of an issue or anyone in a particular particular party is evil is not welcome. If you believe that all Democrats are socialists intent on destroying America or that all Republicans are racists, there are lots of places on the internet for you to espouse those views. State-Journal.com is not one.
No sophomoric banter. This isn’t a third-grade classroom but rather a place for serious consumers of news to offer their reactions and opinions on news stories and published commentary.
No consumer complaints about individual businesses. If you’ve had a bad experience with a private business or organization, contact the Better Business Bureau or the government agency that regulates that business. If you believe the actions of a private business are newsworthy, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will consider whether news coverage is merited.
Absolutely no jokes or comments about a person’s physical appearance.
No promotion of commercial goods or services. Our outstanding staff of marketing consultants stands ready to help businesses with effective advertising solutions.
If you state facts that have not been previously reported by The State Journal, be sure to include the source of your information.
No attacks on State Journal staff members or contributing writers. We welcome questions about, and criticism of, our news stories and commentary but not of the writers who work tirelessly to keep their community informed. Corrections of inaccurate information in news stories should be sent to email@example.com rather than posted in the comments section.
