High School Sports

  • Cougars have just enough to beat the Cougars

     FAIRDALE – After misfiring on a couple of promising drives in the first half, the Bullitt Central Cougars marched 70 yards in seven plays at the end of the third quarter for a touchdown and then turned it over to the defense on Saturday to beat Holy Cross 7-0 in the inaugural King of the Bluegrass Bowl at Fairdale High School.

    This was also the first meeting ever between Bullitt Central and Holy Cross in football even though the two schools often play each other in various other sports.

  • BC girls ready to improve with better numbers

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Needless to say, the 2016 girls’ soccer season did not end the way that Bullitt Central head coach Stephanie Porter wanted.

    Battling injuries and low numbers most of the season, the team had to withdraw from the 23rd District Tournament when several more players would not have been able to play because they were going to be out of town as Fall Break fell on that week.

  • Chargers struggle mightily in opening setback

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Trailing 13-0 less than five minutes into the game, the Bullitt East Chargers never put up a fight on Friday, dropping a 53-0 decision at home to Class 6-A rival Butler.

    The loss was not as upsetting to second year Charger head coach Mark Sander as it was the fact that his team never responded after Butler struck for the two early touchdowns.

    After it was 33-0 at halftime, the Bears added a touchdown five minutes into the third quarter and there was a running clock for the rest of the game.

  • Youthful North comes up short on the road

     GEORGETOWN — Adam Billings told his team exactly what to expect when they hit the road to take on one of the top teams in the state of Kentucky.

    And the Scott County Cardinals definitely lived up to Billings’ expectations.

    The Class 6-A title contender scored on the opening kicking and never looked back in defeating North Bullitt by a 56-19 count.

    But, the Eagles did win the second half 19-7.

  • Football kicks-off this weekend

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Friday Night Lights will kick off with a full slate of three games this weekend for the area high school teams.

    The only team playing at home is Bullitt East and they will play host to Butler on Friday at 7:30 p.m. The Bears posted a 4-7 record a year ago, losing to Lexington Lafayette in the first-round of the Class 6-A play-offs. Butler replaces Eastern, the team that Bullitt East opened with each of the two previous seasons.

  • Central’s numbers still on the rise for boys’ soccer

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – Instead of going for the quick fix when he took over the program a little over a year ago, Bullitt Central boys’ soccer coach Aaron Shaw has been working from the ground up to build a strong foundation.

    The progress is obvious as the Cougars have 38 players this season, perhaps the largest number in the program’s history. Shaw is pretty much planning on having completely separate varsity and junior-varsity squads this fall.

  • Nfor takes over the North Bullitt boys’ soccer squad

     HEBRON ESTATES – A desire to get a little closer to his ‘other’ soccer job in Louisville has brought Emmanuel Nfor to the boys’ job at North Bullitt.

    A 14-year resident of the United States who was born in Cameroon, Nfor coaches soccer in the United program in Louisville. After graduating from Campbellsville University, Nfor was also coaching high school soccer in Frankfort at Western Hills High School. When the commute just got to be too much, Nfor looked into coaching jobs in the Louisville area and the North Bullitt position was posted.

  • Bullitt Cup Saturday

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- While the regular season started on Monday, the first ‘big’ event for the three area boy’s soccer teams comes on Saturday with the revival of the Bullitt Cup.

    The area teams will compete against each other for the Bullitt Cup and there will be an All-Tournament team selected.

    Action will start at 8 a.m. at Bullitt East with the Chargers taking on North Bullitt. At 10 a.m. Bullitt Central will play Bullitt East and then the final game at noon will have North Bullitt and Bullitt Central squaring off.

  • North looking to continue winning ways in ‘17

     HEBRON ESTATES – After two seasons of getting too -- and winning -- post-season games, North Bullitt head coach Adam Billings has the program heading in the right direction.

    The coach doesn’t see any reason why that success should not continue this fall, but he does admit that there will be a little bit of a learning curve as the program has just six seniors and several of them are new to football.
