Youth football is heading into the homestretch

-A A +A

 SHEPHERDSVILLE - Once again this season, The Pioneer News will run the results from the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League in each Wednesday’s edition.

The statistics used each week are provided by the league and the individual teams. Questions about yardage, scoring and tackles should be directed to the league and those teams.

Stat keepers are asked to make sure that the following information is included on each score sheet: their team’s name, their opponent’s name, age division and the final score of the game. Also, yardage for rushing, passing and receiving are needed and should be totaled. Rushing yards include only those yards from the line of scrimmage (not punt and kick-off return yardage). Those players scoring points should also be noted.

Players’ first and last names (actual names, not nicknames) should also be provided.

Any stat sheets not turned into the league packet by the end of play on Sunday, can be delivered to The Pioneer News’ office in Shepherdsville on Monday before noon. Stat sheets can also be faxed to 955-9704 or the information can be emailed to www.pioneernews.net.

It is very rare that space will allow us to run results that are not in our office on the Monday following the games.

 

The Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League felt a little nip in the air as football weather finally was the rule over the weekend. The league is now in the homestretch of the regular season as six of the nine weeks of regular season play are now complete.

There are now three weeks remaining in the regular season. The teams are battling for the best seeds possible heading into the post-season which will start the week of Oct. 10.

For the first time this season, every team in the league turned in a stat sheet to the league.

The program with the bye this week was the Maryville Patriots.
