  • Carnell's kick return changes The Game to BC

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Almost ten minutes into the 38th renewal of The Game, the Bullitt Central Cougars were down 14-0 and didn’t appear to be going anywhere fast.

    That all changed in about ten seconds.

    That is about as long as it took for Bullitt Central junior sensation Trevor Carnell to return a kick-off 85 yards for a touchdown.

  • Offense to defense; What a difference a year makes in game

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – I could have predicted a lot of stuff about Friday’s renewal of The Game.

    One thing I wouldn’t have predicted was 81 points being scored. Not after last season when the two teams pretty much stood in the middle of the field and slugged it out before Bullitt Central won 7-6 at North Bullitt.

  • THE GAME: County’s oldest schools to battle for 38th time

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – What a difference two weeks can make.

    At that point in the 2013 football season, Bullitt Central appeared to be a few steps ahead of arch-rival North Bullitt. On a Friday night, North Bullitt was struggling through a 33-0 loss to Oldham County that dropped them to 1-3 while Bullitt Central was sitting at 3-0 waiting for a trip to Paducah the next day.

  • North holds off furious BC rally in volleyball

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Playing for the second time in 10 days, the outcome was much the same on Monday as North Bullitt pinned a second defeat on arch-rival Bullitt Central in five games.

    North Bullitt, after winning the first two games in convincing fashion, had to pull it back together in the final game to win 15-6. The final score was 25-13, 25-16, 17-25, 17-25, 15-6.

  • A single stroke keeps Chargers from state golf

     FAIRDALE – Before Monday’s Region 5 Boys’ Golf Tournament, Bullitt East senior Michael Murphy told head coach Kyle Downs that he wanted to know if the team needed a certain score down the stretch.

    Murphy knew that playing in the final group of the day that the team chase might come down to one shot.

    Knowing that information is not something that every golfer wants to be told about when they are playing in a major event. The pressure is already high and that can make it suffocating.

  • Homecoming at East; North and BC on the road

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After the first weekend shut-out for the three Bullitt County football programs, they will all be back in action this Friday as they try to get back to winning ways.

    This is an important week for all three teams in that it will be the last tune-up for all three before they enter the three week district slate of games that will determine the success of their season – as well as the Bullitt Cup winner.

  • North rallies late to beat Central

     HEBRON ESTATES – Down two games to one after dropping the third game 25-12 to arch-rival Bullitt Central, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles needed a big rally on Thursday.

    The green and gold got just that as first-year head coach Scott Whitlow’s team surged back to force a fifth game with a 25-19 win in game four and then rallied from an early hole to win the fifth game 15-9.

  • Lady Chargers retain Bullitt Cup

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Girls’ golf is not normally a fast-moving sport, but a high school tournament doesn’t normally take six days.

    That was the case with the 2013 Bullitt Cup after lightening halted play on a Tuesday at Heritage Hill Golf Course. Play did not resume until last Monday with the Bullitt East Lady Chargers retaining the traveling trophy that is sponsored by Schmid Funeral Home.

    Bullitt East with the minimum of four golfers, won the event with a 197 total. Bullitt Central and North Bullitt tied for the runner-up spot at 271.

  • Lady Eagles score early then roll past Central 8-0

     HEBRON ESTATES – After scoring on a penalty kick in the opening moments of the match, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles never took their foot off the gas pedal on Wednesday as they beat Bullitt Central 8-0 in girls’ soccer action.

    It was the first meeting between the two rivals since they met last season in the championship game of the 23rd District Tournament, a game that North Bullitt won 6-2.

  • Undefeated BC and BE hit the road; NB home

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The undefeated Bullitt Central Cougars and Bullitt East Chargers will take a definite step up in competition this week as both programs go on the road.

    Bullitt Central has a road trip for the ages as they will travel to Paducah on Saturday to take on the newly formed McCracken County Mustangs. The game is part of the Patriot Bowl, a three-game showcase of games. The Cougars will travel over 400 miles round-trip on Saturday.
