  • A little too much BC at the end

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – It was a play late in the game and a run that few people saw as a night of steady rain chased all but the most die-hard fans home as the outcome was well decided long ago in the 39th renewal of The Game on Friday at North Bullitt.

  • STATE BOUND! BE boys earn spot in big show

     ELIZABETHTOWN – ‘Just another golf tournament’.

         That is what Bullitt East boys’ golf coach Kyle Downs was preaching on Tuesday morning before his team started play in the Fifth Region Tournament at the Elizabethtown Country Club.

         Of course, it wasn’t really just another golf tournament. It was just the mindset that the veteran coach was trying to instill. It worked.

  • BE edges Central for top area team in Third Region tourney

     ELIZABETHTOWN – While winning a Girls’ Third Region golf title, either team or individual, was not in the cards for area golfers on Monday, there was a tight race for the best team score between Bullitt East and Bullitt Central.

    The fact that the two schools could have a little side battle is a step in the right direction. While Bullitt East has had a relatively strong golf program in the past that has not been the case at Bullitt Central where numbers have long been a problem.

  • East sweeps pair of soccer matches from Bullitt Central

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The boys’ soccer season for the Bullitt East Chargers has not been going very well, reaching a low point on Tuesday of last week when the team lost to district rival Jeffersontown 7-2, leaving their post-season route quite difficult.

    A day later, it didn’t appear to be getting any better against Bullitt Central in Shepherdsville when Cougar sophomore Austin Mason uncorked a 25-yard shot from the right side of the goal that found the upper left corner of the net just 90 seconds into the game.

  • 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.
