NewCath, Moeller Clinch Championships Saturday
The Newport Central Catholic Thoroughbreds and the Moeller Crusaders won state championships in their divisions this weekend, making both sides of the Ohio River victorious in this year’s high school football contests.
NewCath won the KHSAA Class 2A Championships Saturday afternoon, with a 30-26 victory over Caldwell county at Houchens-Smith Stadium at Bowling Green.
It’s the Kentucky high school’s second state title in three years, and its fifth overall.
Moeller’s 20-12 victory caps its celebration of the Montgomery (OH) school football program’s 50th year.
