It matters to someone
It would be easy to look at this week’s local football schedule — which includes open dates for three teams and rather pedestrian games for three others — and decide it’s not that interesting. Unless you’re playing in one of those games.
They aren’t the most glamourous games, to be sure, but they’re important to the players who will be on the field tonight in Danville, Stanford and Liberty. When you’re only guaranteed 10 or 11, every game should matter.
And there are reasons why each of these three games is important to the area teams involved:
Can Danville wrap its collective arms around a Campbellsville team that should have a size advantage at almost every position and continue the progress the Admirals showed last week?
Can Casey County build on the momentum of its first victory with a win over Adair County, a team the Rebels usually match up well with?
Can Lincoln County overcome injury problems that seem to get worse by the week and knock off Rockcastle County for its first win?
The answers may not matter to large numbers of people, but they definitely matter.
