Have you ever seen a 5-way tie?

Any High School Football fan needs to read this latest blog on what very well could end up being a 5-way tie for first in one District.

The most competitive District in the Mountains (if not the whole state) has to be Class 5A, District 8.  At this point in the season, there is a very real possibility of a 5-way tie for first.  That's correct.  It's not a typo... a 5-way tie!

5 teams could end up 3-2 with Clay County on the outside looking in at 0-5.  Here is how it would play out:
 
Whitley County (2-1)
Lose vs. North Laurel
Win vs. Perry Central
 
Letcher Central (2-1)
Win vs. Clay County
Lose vs. North Laurel
 
Harlan County (2-1)
Lose vs. Perry Central
Win vs. Clay County
 
Perry Central (2-1)
Win vs. Harlan County
Lose vs. Whitley County
 
North Laurel (1-2)
Win vs. Whitley County
Win vs. Letcher Central
 
Clay County (0-3)
Lose vs. Letcher Central
Lose vs. Harlan County
 
If everything happens like I have laid out, 5 teams will tie for first at 3-2.  It would then go to a tie breaker.  In that case, North Laurel would be in the best shape with Whitley County in the most trouble... as of right now.
 
All I can say is hang on to your hats and buckle up.  It's going to be a bumpy ride.
