  • Eagles take control early, often in big 50-7 victory over Valley

          HEBRON ESTATES - There would be no question about the distractions of homecoming.

         And there would be no need to ask about any rust having coming off a bye week.

         And any discussion about overlooking an opponent who gave up 74 points to cross-county rival Bullitt Central the week before.

         A year ago, Bullitt East beat the Wildcats 55-0.

         The win exorcised a poor outing a week earlier when the Chargers fell at Spencer County 27-0.

  • Cougars make it three straight with win

          NICHOLASVILLE - After trailing 8-7 at the end of the first quarter, the Bullitt Central Cougars on five straight possessions on Friday and beat homestanding East Jessamine 39-23.

         Other than allowing a long kick-off return for a touchdown midway through the second quarter, Bullitt Central was in control for most of the game. The Cougars led 26-15 at halftime and it was 39-23 after three quarters as neither team scored down the stretch.

          SHEPHERDSVILLE - Just before the start of the high school football season, the Kentucky High School Athletic Association announced, quietly for the most part, the football alignment for the next two seasons, 2013 and 2014.

  • Little goes right as Bears stun Chargers

          TAYLORSVILLE - Into every high school football season, a little rain must fall.

  • Vikings fall under BC offensive storm

          VALLEY STATION - With inclement weather predicted, the Bullitt Central football team took the field an hour earlier than scheduled on Friday night.

         While the storms held off, there was plenty of lightning as the scoreboard read Bullitt Central 40, Valley 26 - at halftime.

         The offensive storm didn't end until the Bullitt Central Cougar defense laid some thunder on the Viking runners.

  • Chargers travel to Spencer Friday

     MOUNT WASHINGTON - A rivalry that is hot in many sports will look to expand to football on Friday as Bullitt East travels to Taylorsville to take on the Spencer County Bears.
