  • Mercy Week! NB and BE to battle

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – The post-season hierarchy will come into focus in Sixth Region girls’ soccer action over the next week as both North Bullitt and Bullitt East will get a regular season shot at five-time defending champion Mercy.

    (Mercy actually has a longer regional title stretch than that, but the local teams only consider it over the five years since Bullitt County was added to the Sixth Region in 2012.)

  • Area cross-country teams are off and running

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – It has been a slow start to the high school cross-country season for area teams, but they have gotten in some action.

    Part of the problem was that the first big Saturday race of the season, on Labor Day weekend, was washed out in Elizabethtown when the races had to be cancelled when the city of Elizabethtown closed the park due to the heavy rains from the remnants of hurricane Harvey.

    Then last weekend, at the Fairgrounds Frenzy in Elizabethtown, Bullitt Central opted to run in the two junior-varsity races.

  • East set for Friday with homecoming

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – It will be homecoming at Bullitt East on Friday in more ways than one as the Chargers look to start district play on a high note as they play host to longtime rival Nelson County.

    Yes, the Charger Nation will celebrate homecoming this week with the crowning of the Queen and King before the game in a ceremony set to start at 7 p.m.

  • Two teams looking for answers meet Friday

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – The first five weeks of the high school football season have really raised more questions than they have answered for local football teams.

    That is most certainly the case for both Bullitt Central and North Bullitt as they get ready to collide in the 42nd renewal of The Game on Friday in the Cougars’ lair.

    Last year, both teams came into the first district game of the season with 4-1 records and both coaches pretty much knew what they had.

  • North musters one good half against Trojans

     RADCLIFF – Held to just 111 yards of total offense, the North Bullitt Eagles didn’t have enough firepower to stay with Class 6-A North Hardin on Friday, falling 37-0.

    This was the first time in 30 games under head coach Adam Billings that the Eagles have been shut-out.

    The North Bullitt defense did keep the young team in the game in the first half. North Hardin had to settle for a field goal late in the first quarter and then added a touchdown five minutes before halftime for a 10-0 halftime edge.

  • Tale of two halves results in BE losing 22-21 on 45-yard field goal

     SHELBYVILLE — There was no doubt that Bullitt East’s encounter with Shelby County was a tale of two halves.

    The visiting Chargers won the first half but Shelby County won after intermission and that resulted in a 22-21 victory.

    “Our kids didn’t come out to play,” Bullitt East head coach Mark Sander matter-of-factly said following the loss on Friday night.

  • Cougars lose OT thriller to North Oldham

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – A 27-yard field goal off the foot of North Oldham senior Adam Berry was the difference on Friday as the Mustangs stunned undefeated Bullitt Central 16-13.

    The win snapped an 18-game losing streak for North Oldham, a team that went 0-10 last season and had lost all four of its games this season by at least 11 points each. The win set off a wild celebration on the visitors’ side of the field at George Valentine Field.

  • Friday Night Lights!! A full slate of games Friday

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – It is back to a full slate of games for area football fans on Friday as all three teams will be in action on the last weekend before district play starts next Friday.

    Bullitt Central, undefeated this season through three games, will be playing at home while Bullitt East will be on the road. The Cougars will be hosting North Oldham while Bullitt East travels to Shelbyville to take on Shelby County. North Bullitt is on the road, making a short trip south to Radcliff to take on North Hardin.

  • Central picks up second, and only, wins over North

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – If you are going to start a boys’ soccer season with just two wins in the first 10 matches, then you might as well make the most of it and get the two wins over your arch-rivals.

    That is the way it has worked out so far this season for the Bullitt Central Cougars. Coach Aaron Shaw’s young and relatively inexperienced squad has struggled to gets wins this fall. However, the two wins the team has recorded have come over North Bullitt.

  • Lady Chargers complete net sweep of rivals

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Just two days after beating North Bullitt 2-0, Bullitt East completed the sweep of its county rivals on Thursday, rolling past Bullitt Central 25-11, 25-19, 26-24.

    The three day flurry of action for the Lady Chargers will be their only meetings with their county rivals this fall during the regular season.
