  • BE can’t stay with state power South Oldham

     CRESTWOOD — Coaches will also say that when a player goes down to an injury, it’s next man up.

    But, in reality, when you have a small roster, injuries can play a big role.

    And, on the football field where a player is playing on both sides of the ball, an injury means that two players have to step up.

    On Friday, a beat up Bullitt East Charger team traveled to play one of the top 5-A teams in the state — South Oldham.

    Injuries or not, Bullitt East head coach Mark Sander knew it would be a battle.

  • Cougars barely hang on to beat Oldham

     BUCKNER – Too much celebrating by Oldham County allowed Bullitt Central to celebrate a key district win on Friday as the Cougars held on down the stretch to secure a 21-19 victory on the road.

    The Cougars had scored on three of their first four possessions of the game and led 21-6 at halftime. That all changed in the second half when Bullitt Central’s offense sputtered as Oldham County was heating up.

  • It will be road warrior week for area football teams

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The last two undefeated teams in Class 5-A, District 3 will clash on Friday when Bullitt East goes on the road to battle two-time defending district champion South Oldham.

    In fact, all three Bullitt County football programs will be on the road this week in district play. In addition to Bullitt East, Bullitt Central will be playing close by as they will be in Buckner playing Oldham County. North Bullitt will make the short trip south to take on Nelson County.

  • NB rallies past BC in net play

     HEBRON ESTATES – Consider it more a preview than a showdown.

    Yes, North Bullitt and Bullitt Central clashed for the second time this regular season on Monday in the Lady Eagles’ nest and the green and gold came away with a 25-21, 22-25, 25-17, 25-23 victory, but of the three meetings that the two teams will in all probability have this fall, this was the least important.

  • Oh so close! East falls to Mercy in overtime

     LOUISVILLE – Heartbreak and the Bullitt East Lady Chargers seem to go hand-in-hand when it comes to girls’ soccer.

    That was the case again last week as for the 16th straight time the Mercy Jaguars got the best of the Lady Chargers in a classic regular season match that needed extra time to find a winner.

  • BE/Eastside’s Macie Brown has a big fall

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Just four days after becoming the youngest player from Bullitt County to ever qualify for a KHSAA State Golf Championship, Bullitt East and Eastside seventh-grader Macie Brown added to her honors on Saturday, winning the Girls’ Kentucky Middle School State Golf Championship.

  • Quick start, slow finish means North falls

     BUCKNER — North Bullitt head football coach Adam Billings has never been one to worry about the scoreboard.

    He’s more worried about coaching his players and seeing them improve.

    Some years would have the bigger numbers at the end of the game; some years it is the other way around.

    This season, coming off a senior-laden team with a promising junior class, has been rough.

    But, Billings remains positive that the Eagles are just a few small plays away.

  • THE WAR: East maintains composure to beat BC

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – The game might have been short on execution, but Friday’s 29th annual renewal of The War more than made up for it in determination and grit.

    In the end, it was Bullitt East that made the final big play, stuffing Bullitt Central running back Zak Clark at the 15-yard line on fourth down, a yard short of the first down, with 1:16 remaining in the game, preserving the Chargers’ 19-13 advantage.

  • North needs a win Friday over Oldham

     HEBRON ESTATES – It is only the second of five straight district games this week for the North Bullitt Eagles when they travel to Oldham County on Friday for a 7:30 p.m. contest, but the green and gold really need to get a victory this week to stay in the mix for a post-season berth.

    Over the past several seasons, the three Bullitt County teams have competed with South Oldham for the four play-off berths in the six-team Class 5-A, Region 3 division. Oldham County and Nelson County in the past have been on the outside looking in.

  • Short and physical is the forecast for Friday

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Friday night’s 29th renewal of The War could be the shortest on record as both Bullitt Central and Bullitt East have found more success this season keeping the ball on the ground than throwing it around the field.

    Frankly, a short game would make both Bullitt Central head coach Matt Kuehn and Bullitt East head coach Mark Sander plenty happy. Both coaches think defense first and much of the offense is based on what the defense can do.
