  • OT ecstasy!! Cougars win fifth straight

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – A fourth-down, 1-yard plunge by Trevor Carnell and then the extra point kick by Cameron Dukes were the difference Friday as Bullitt Central pulled out a 28-27 overtime victory against visiting Elizabethtown.

         The Panthers had the ball first in overtime and they scored on first down on a 10-yard pass from quarterback Hunter Sullivan to tight end Jack Wilson. However, the extra point kick came off low from the foot of Peyton Payne and was deflected at the line of scrimmage, never getting above the crossbar.

  • Big homecoming games at BC & NB

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The final tune-ups for all three-area football teams before the start of three straight district contests will be this Friday as the teams reach the halfway point to the season.

    Just as importantly, the games at North Bullitt and Bullitt Central will be homecoming events with all the pageantry and announcements coming during halftime festivities.

  • NB starts better, sweeps past BC

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Rallying from a 24-20 deficit in the second game to win 28-26, the North Bullitt Eagles picked up a key 23rd District win on Thursday night as they traveled into the Cougars’ Den and came away with a victory over Bullitt Central in volleyball action.

    It was just ten days earlier that North Bullitt had suffered through a straight set loss to Bullitt East. In the mean time, Bullitt Central had taken a game from Bullitt East before losing, giving the Lady Cougars hope that they could get the upper hand in the district standings.

  • BE in mix, set for regional

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Over the past two weeks, the ‘big three’ of Fifth Region boys’ golf have been punching and pushing each other in major weekend tournaments as they prepare for next Tuesday’s Regional event at the Elizabethtown Country Club.

    Throughout the season it has been Elizabethtown, Central Hardin and Bullitt East at the top of the team scores amongst Fifth Region squads at any tournament.

  • North beats Central 9-3; Mercy rolls past BE 4-1

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – In a rematch of the past two 23rd District championship games, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles showed that they are still the team to beat in the first-round of the post-season as they beat Bullitt Central 9-3 on Wednesday.

    Since the present district alignment for girls’ soccer was put into affect in 2012, the Lady Eagles have not lost a game to a district foe. Bullitt Central has been right behind, beating Southern and Moore before falling to North Bullitt.

  • Staggering numbers, but a loss for the Eagles

    BUCKNER -- If Brett Newton had been just a fan, he would have left the Oldham County field impressed.

  • Bitter disappointment for Chargers on Friday

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – In high school football there is often a fine line between spectacular glory and bitter disappointment.

         The Bullitt East Chargers learned about the former and just how fine that line can be on Friday as they were shocked by visiting Central Hardin 35-28.  The final touchdown for the Bruins was scored on a 47-yard pass with just 38 seconds remaining in the game.

  • Cougars stay hot, rout Calloway County

    PADUCAH – Heading into Saturday’s game against Calloway County that was part of the McCracken Bowl, Bullitt Central head coach Danny Leasor emphasized ‘taking care of business.’

         We all should have it so easy in the business world.

  • BE’s homecoming clash is big; Central really goes on the road

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – One of the biggest football games in the area this weekend will be in Mount Washington as undefeated Central Hardin visits to take on Bullitt East and its three-game winning streak.

    Adding to the festivities in Mount Washington is the fact that it will be homecoming for the Charger Nation.

  • East and North beat the elements before BE wins

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – What has been a tough first-part of the season for both teams, got a little better for the Bullitt East Chargers on Thursday as they turned back North Bullitt 2-0 in boys’ soccer action.

    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. There was also intermittent drizzle the afternoon of the game, but it stopped 10 minutes before the start of the game and did not return.
