LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Madison Central at Lafayette is the High School Highlight Reel game of the week Friday.

There’s no doubt this one is bigger than some other games on the schedule for both teams with just one loss.

The district is up for grabs at Ishmael Stadium.

So how are the Indians preparing for the Generals?

Hear from central head coach Mark Scenters in the video.

Lafayette head man Eric Shaw is trying to keep his guys focused on the task at hand by treating Central game week prep just like the Generals have treated every opponent this season.

But again, this one is different.  The Indians have a host of weapons on offense and a stout defense.

So just how big is the game going to be and how about some Generals scouting the competition in Richmond last Thursday night when Mad Cent beat Tates Creek to kick off fall break?

Hear from Coach Shaw in the video.

Be sure to tune in to ABC 36 News at 11 Friday for highlights and more on the High School Highlight Reel.
