  • Friday football primer: Teams set to finish regular seasons

    It’s tune-up week for the county’s three football programs.

    North Oldham, Oldham County and South Oldham will all play their regular season finales Friday before beginning the state playoffs on Nov. 7.

    For OC and South, Friday is a chance to fine-tune things and go into the playoffs with some momentum.

    North will have that objective Friday too, but can also improve its playoff seeding with a win and a little help from a school in a neighboring county.
