The Purples are coming off a dominant 38-8 victory over Owensboro in the first round of the playoffs. In that game, the Purples were led by quarterback John Doe, who threw for three touchdowns and ran for another. The Purples defense also played well, holding Owensboro to just 88 yards of total offense.
The Jaguars advanced to the second round of the playoffs with a narrow 17-15 victory over Highlands. In that game, the Jaguars were led by running back Cameron O’hara, who rushed for 120 yards and a touchdown. The Jaguars defense also came up big, stopping Highlands on a fourth-and-goal attempt late in the game.
This should be a close and exciting game between two evenly matched teams. The Purples have a high-powered offense that is averaging 47.0 points per game over their last four games. The Jaguars have a solid running game and a defense that has only allowed 14.9 points per game.
I predict that the Bowling Green Purples will win this game by a score of 35-28. The Purples offense is simply too good to be contained, and I think they will be able to score enough points to overcome the Jaguars’ defense.
Bowling Green Purples: The Purples need to continue to score points on offense. They also need to limit the big plays from the Jaguars’ offense.
Cooper Jaguars: The Jaguars need to control the clock and keep the Purples offense off the field. They also need to make some big plays on offense to keep up with the Purples’ scoring.
This should be a great game to watch. Be sure to tune in on Saturday night to see who advances to the semifinals of the KHSAA Class 5A playoffs.
