Josh Moore and Josh Sullivan of the Lexington Herald Leader had the following to say of the game, "
A little rain wasn’t about to stop one of the top offenses in Class 2A. It just had to move the ball a little differently.

Xavier Brown, a freshman, had 66 yards on 10 carries, the bulk of that yardage coming on 32-yard TD burst in the game’s waning moments to put things out of reach.
Green’s score came with 6:43 left in the fourth quarter to put LCA up 28-7. He was pushed into the end zone by a pile of teammates for the last several yards.
“We work together as a unit, man,” Green said. “I got pushed 6 yards into the end zone, just like you see beast mode on TV man. We were just out there having fun, doing our thing.”
Junior Jayden Barnhardt was 12-for-16 for 151 yards and two TDs.
Blake Caldwell led KCD with 75 yards on 16 rushes. Nick Smith scored the Bearcats’ lone TD on an 11-yard reception from Luke Russo."
