    Male left little doubt about who the best high school football team in Jefferson County is Friday night.

    The Bulldogs routed visiting St. Xavier 30-13 in a battle of the Nos. 1 and 2 teams in’s Power Rankings.

    Meanwhile in a battle between Nos. 3 and 4, as well as another game in Class 6-A’s District 4 (a.k.a. the “Super District”), fourth-ranked Trinity handed third-ranked Manual its first loss of the season with a 14-3 victory Friday night 

    Here’s a quick look at our entire Top 10 this week: 

    1. Male (7-0) - Senior quarterback Davis Mattingly threw two touchdown passes as the Bulldogs won their third straight game against St. X. Male hosts Trinity next Friday night. Last week’s ranking: 1.

    2. St. Xavier (5-3) - The Tigers couldn’t carry over the momentum of last week’s win over archrival Trinity on Friday night. They’ll try to bounce back next Friday night, when they host Manual. Last week: 2.

    3. Trinity (5-3) - The Shamrocks sloshed their way to a 14-3 triumph over Manual at muddy Manual Stadium on Friday night. It doesn’t get any easier for the Shamrocks, though. They host top-ranked Male next Friday night in their district finale. Last week: 3.
