  • East’s early-season woes continue in loss to Titans

     MOUNT WASHINGTON –The rocky start to the 2015 football season for the Bullitt East Chargers got a lot bumpier on Friday as the red and gold fell behind 28-0 in the first quarter before losing to visiting Martha Layne Collins on Friday 55-14.

    The 55 points is the most the Chargers have allowed in a loss (BE beat Nelson County 67-59 two years ago) since  Aug. 27, 2010 in a 63-12 loss to Holy Cross. It was the first time that the Chargers have had a running clock against them since losing to Collins 52-7 midway through the 2010 season.

    “It was a great practice,” said the first-year Eagle head coach. “The players are hungry.”

    After going on the road to defeat Woodford County, North Bullitt did something Billings, or many of his players, may not have dreamed possible -- defeated Southern to go 2-0 on the season.

    This was the second time this season the Cougars have led by a single score down the stretch and both times the defense has stepped up and made the plays to secure a win.
