    The contest was almost not played as heavy rains the previous night hit the area, but as Bullitt East head coach Mike Brangers noted, his field was so dry that it just sucked up the rain.

    On Thursday, North Bullitt and Bullitt Central will clash in an important 23rd District match in Shepherdsville.

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – Exploding for 31 points in the second quarter, the Bullitt Central Cougars on Friday took care of business and defeated a young and inexperienced Valley squad 45-8.

Bullitt Central struggled a little early, but then rose to the occasion and did what was expected of them, winning a game that had a running clock for all of the second half.
