The Pirates once again couldn't find a way to slow down the Bearcats (7-1).

And that once again led to a lopsided loss.

Kentucky Country Day jumped out to a 34-point lead early in the second quarter and rolled to a 62-8 win over Berea Community on Friday in the opening round of the Class A Playoffs in Louisville.

The Bearcats were up 48-0 at the half.

Caleb Moore caught a touchdown pass from Jayson Coburn in the second half to get Berea on the scoreboard. Koty Roberts added the two-point conversion.

The Pirates finish the season with an 0-8 record.

Berea and Kentucky Country Day have met four times in just more than 13 months. The Bearcats have won all those games by a combined score of 199-22.

KCD beat Berea in the opening round of the postseason 50-0 last year and beat the Pirates 51-0 on Oct. 9 in Louisville.

The Bearcats are ranked No. 2 in the latest Associated Press Class A rankings. Their only loss on the season came to Bullitt East, 28-21, on Oct. 2.

They have won five-straight games.

Kentucky Country Day will take on Eminence next week in the district title game. The Warriors picked up a 21-20 road win over Frankfort on Friday night.
