Highlands Defeats Male in Preseason Scrimmage Action

2009 Preseason Scrimmage: Highlands 50 Louisville Male 40
Date/Time: Friday, August 14 at 7:00PM
Location: Highlands

Fort Thomas Highlands defeated Kentucky Class 6A power Louisville Male in the Bluebirds' only 2009 preseason scrimmage. The scrimmage was played in a game format. Highlands got out to a 43-14 halftime advantage and was leading the Male Bulldogs 50-14 in the fourth quarter, before Male narrowed the margin late in the game, against mostly Highlands' back-up players. Austin Collinsworth and Tyler Fennell carried the ball well for the 'Birds, and quarterback Will Bardo played with poise and composure; he threw the ball with great accuracy in the scrimmage. The defense, led by linebacker Brandon Roller, was solid against Male's speed. This scrimmage was played as part of the 2009 Tom Potter Classic.
