  • Cougars look to continue winning ways Friday

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Bullitt Central football coach Danny Leasor knows that for Friday night’s game against North Bullitt that he has the better team.

    Eagle head coach Brett Newton will be the first to admit that the Cougars have more weapons than his squad does at this point in the season.

    And both coaches will agree on one thing – the fact that Bullitt Central is having a better season than the Eagles will mean nothing when the teams collide on Friday in the Eagles’ Nest in the 39th renewal of The Game.

  • Defense continues to be a thorn for Eagles

    HEBRON ESTATES -- A number of North Bullitt football players had a great seat in the end zone for the school's homecoming ceremonies Friday night.

  • Chargers stand 4-2 heading to district contests

    BUCKNER – Following a pair of key contests that tested the team’s resolve midway through the season, the Bullitt East Chargers got to have a little fun on Friday, rolling to a 37-7 halftime lead before coasting past Oldham County 44-21.

         The win left the red and gold with a 4-2 record heading into an ‘open’ date this week before they start district play on Oct. 10 in Shepherdsville against undefeated Bullitt Central.

  • 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.
