  • Two wins make for one special night of football

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - A year after Bullitt County football teams went 0-3 in the first-round of the play-offs, last Friday night really was a golden evening with wins by both Bullitt Central and North Bullitt.

  • Chiefs capture back-to-back championship seasons

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - With a team looking to defend its Pee Wee title in the Greater Bullitt County Football League, the Overdale Chiefs looked to be in trouble on Saturday.

        Down 6-0 at halftime, head coach Travis Goodwin must have had the winning speech as the Chiefs came back to defeat the Old Mill Bengals 18-12 in the closing seconds.

        The Bengals got on the board first with just 34 seconds left in the second quarter.

        Zeke Kern recovered a Chief fumble at the Chief 7.

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - A pair of first half touchdowns, one scored by the defense, was enough for the Cedar Grove Vikings on Saturday as they captured the program’s first ‘A’ Division title in 14 years as they beat the Pleasant Grove Dolphins 12-7.

        When Cedar Grove won the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League title in 1996, Frank Walls was on the sidelines, not for the Vikings, but for the old Roby Raiders. Cedar Grove won that game 8-6.
