    In the Sixth Region tournament, it was a huge night for Bullitt East’s Christian Foster.

    She scored all five goals in the Lady Chargers’ first-round romp over Pleasure Ridge Park.

    Bullitt East had to play at the  home of the Panthers but it really didn’t matter in the 5-0 victory.

  • POST-SEASON: Local soccer, volleyball in overdrive

      SHEPHERDSVILLE -- High school volleyball and soccer fans have plenty of reasons to celebrate this week.

  • BC soccer caps huge week with historic title

     HIGHVIEW -- Forget any bomb threat at their school.

    The Bullitt Central Cougar soccer team declared that it was ‘the bomb’ on Thursday night.

    Dating back until at least 2000, this version of the Cougar boys’ soccer team did what no others had done -- advanced to the Sixth Region tournament.

    And it collected the 23rd District crown by winning the penalty kick shootout 4-3.

    Neither Bullitt Central nor Southern could get a kick past the respective goalies in regulation and two overtime periods.

  • NB girls stay in control in 23rd District

     HEBRON ESTATES – The North Bullitt Lady Eagles continue to make it look easy, winning a fourth straight 23rd District title on Wednesday, beating Bullitt Central 6-0.

    The 23rd District has had the same alignment for the past four seasons for soccer and four times North Bullitt has carried home the trophy. In fact, each time they have beat Bullitt Central for the title.

  • East girls still a goal short

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers keep beating on the door against the Mercy Jaguars, but the red and gold keep coming up a goal short.

    That was the case again on Thursday in the championship game of the Girls’ 24th District Tournament on the Lady Chargers’ home field. In the fourth straight meeting in the final between two of the area’s top teams, Mercy pulled out another tight win, holding on for the 3-2 victory.

  • BE boys advance to regional

     FERN CREEK – For the first time since realignment put Bullitt East in the 24th District at the start of the 2012 season, the Chargers advanced to the championship game and earned a spot in this week’s Sixth Region Tournament at Mercy High School.

    Bullitt East had earned the number two seed for the district tournament, but that didn’t seem very important when the team found itself down 2-0 at halftime in the opening round game against Jeffersontown.

  • BC vs. BE on boys’ side; NB vs. BE in girls’ semis

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- For the first time since joining the Sixth Region for the 2012 season, not one, but two Bullitt County boys’ soccer teams made the field for this week’s event at Mercy High School.

    Not only are there two teams in the field, but Bullitt Central and Bullitt East will play each other on Tuesday in an opening round match, meaning that one local team will at least reach Thursday’s semi-finals.

  • Dragons flex muscles over BC; await North next

     CRESTWOOD -- When you are facing a talented team that executes well and is well coached, there is not a lot of room to make mistakes.

    For the first quarter on Friday night, the visiting Bullitt Central Cougars were hanging around. 

    However, by the end of the night, it would be the homesteading South Oldham Dragons who would move on with a 43-13 victory.

    “They are a very good team,” said Cougar head coach The Lawson. “They are the best team in the district.”

  • THE CLASH!: Eagles score early then survive BE rally

      HEBRON ESTATES – Scoring 21 points in the first quarter seemed to be more than enough for the North Bullitt Eagles on Friday in the annual renewal of The Clash against Bullitt East.

    In the end, it turned out to be barely enough for the green and gold as they had to hold off a late Bullitt East rally, the final thrust ending when Daulton Walls intercepted a pass at the 19 yard line with less than a minute remaining in the contest.

    North Bullitt’s 21-15 win did two major things for the Eagles.
