    The Cougars picked up an important ‘W’ as they opened the season against visiting Barren County with a 21-7 decision, but there were no bonus points for style. Bullitt Central did enough right to win easily and made enough mistakes to keep the gave closer than it should have been.

  • Strong NB defense comes up just short against Doss
