Bardstown is currently in a three-way tie for the No. 2 seed in Class 3A District 3, but in the Kentucky High School Athletic Association’s complicated tiebreaker process, Henry County is locked into the No. 2 spot and would host a first-round playoff game.
Waggener and Bardstown are left to fight it out for the No. 3 and No. 4 seed for the right to visit either Class 3A No. 3 Lexington Catholic or No. 4 Boyle County in the first round of the playoffs. The tiebreaker formula — which assigns points for the number of wins a team’s beaten opponents — indicates the Wildcats control their own destiny and would claim the No. 3 seed with a win over Valley, even if the Tigers beat Allen County-Scottsville. But a win by the Tigers and a loss by the Wildcats would put Bardstown in the No. 3 seed.
Allen County-Scottsville on offense is a fairly balanced team by high school standards, rushing for 1,277 yards while passing for 871. Quarterback Chase Wilson is a dual threat on the ground or in the air.
Bardstown’s offense got a lift last week with the return of quarterback Santrel Farmer from an ankle injury, opening up the passing game just in time for the playoffs.
