LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) — Survive and advance. That’s where the high school football season sits this weekend.

It doesn’t matter if a team wins by three points or three touchdowns. Win and you continue your playoff run. Lose and your season ends. You also exit the WDRB High School Football Top 10.

Ask Manual and Pleasure Ridge Park.

The Crimson (St. Xavier) and Panthers (Male) lost last weekend and are not included in the poll this week.

Three games flash on the calendar this weekend:

St. Xavier defeated Class 6A champion Male during the regular season. The Tigers must do it again Friday.

Christian Academy outlasted DeSales, 12-7, last month. The Class 2A powers play Friday at CAL.

Don’t forget the Brownstown (Ind.) Central Braves. They’ve moved to No. 29 in the Indiana state rankings at MaxPreps while sitting two wins from the Class 3A state title. Brownstown, up to sixth in the WDRB rankings, visits Lawrenceburg Friday.

Here is the latest poll. (This will be the final poll until the season is completed).

1. Trinity (12-0, seven first-place votes, 70 points) — The Rocks are gunning for their sixth straight shutout against Ballard, a team they beat 55-0.

2. St. Xavier (9-3, 61 points) — The Tigers beat Manual twice. Now they have to beat Male a second time, too.

3. Male (10-2), 57 points) — After eliminating Pleasure Ridge Park, the Bulldogs get their chance to erase a 10-point loss (31-21) to St. X.

4. Christian Academy (11-1, 48 points) — The Centurions stretched their winning streak to 11 but face a tough DeSales team they beat, 12-7, on Oct. 7.

5. DeSales (10-2, 37 points) — After an impressive road win at Glasgow, the Colts must return to the road and do something they could not do at home — beat CAL.

6. Brownstown (Ind.) Central (12-1, 36 points) — Brownstown is as hot as any team in the state, winning seven in a row by three touchdowns or more as they head to Lawrenceburg.

7. Shelby County (11-1 28 points) — The Rockets handled rivals Collins and now face John Hardin.

8. Ballard (9-3, 22 points) — The Bruins have delivered a solid season but face the daunting task of trying to upset Trinity.

9. Fern Creek (10-2) — The Tigers continue to make noise in the 5A playoffs as they prepare to face Covington Catholic.

10. South Oldham (11-1) — The rematch of a game against North Bullitt that South Oldham won, 35-34.
