  • Mason’s 35 yard kick at :00 lifts BC to win

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – It was a homecoming to remember on Friday as the Bullitt Central Cougars scored twice in the final 3:07 to defeat district-rival Oldham County 10-7.
        In the end, it was a 35 yard field goal from Cougar senior soccer standout Austin Mason as time expired that accounted for the final score and sent the Bullitt Central faithful home in a state of euphoria.

  • It’s home, home and a homecoming on Friday

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – For the three Bullitt County football teams it will be home, home and a homecoming on Friday as area fans get a week off from intra-county battles before it heats up again next week when North Bullitt travels to Bullitt East.

  • NB runs away from BC

     HEBRON ESTATES – The match was moved back four days, but that had no effect on the outcome as on Saturday North Bullitt beat Bullitt Central 10-0 in a match that ended early in the second half.

    The contest was originally scheduled for Wednesday, but rain in the early afternoon, when the decision had to be made, forced the game back to Saturday at North Bullitt. Because the soccer teams play on the football field at North Bullitt, field conditions and the damage that can be caused is taken into consideration.

  • There’s no ‘good’ draw for Lady Eagle soccer

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – There is no revelation here, but as we head into the post-season for soccer starting on Monday, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles are between a rock and hard place when it comes to the upcoming district and regional brackets.

    First off, North Bullitt could not be a bigger favorite to win the 24th District Tournament set for next Tuesday and Thursday at Bullitt Central. The Lady Eagles have beaten Bullitt Central, Moore and Southern by 10-0 scores in games that ended very early.

  • Central’s late rally sets up district showdown

      HEBRON ESTATES – The post-season for area volleyball teams might still be two weeks away, but there was a definite tournament atmosphere in play on Monday when Bullitt Central and North Bullitt clashed for the second time this season.

  • BE’s Taylor headed to state golf for third time

         FORT KNOX – It wasn’t the day that he had hoped for, but Bullitt East senior Zach Taylor still qualified for this week’s Boys’ Kentucky State Golf Tournament after he fired a 79 in the Region Five event at Lindsey Golf Course at Fort Knox.
        Taylor becomes the first Bullitt East golfer to ever qualify for three trips to the state tournament.

  • Eagles move to 6-1 with win

        HEBRON ESTATES -- The defense was physical.
        The offense was efficient.
        And the North Bullitt Eagles played hard for 48 minutes.
        That resulted in a workmanlike 35-12 victory over Oldham County on Friday night.
        But the score really wasn’t that close as the visiting Colonels scored a pair of late touchdowns to close the final margin.

  • Cougars make the final stand to beat East

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – On his coaches’ board on Friday, Bullitt Central head coach Matt Kuehn in big letters wrote ‘FINISH’.
        Actually, the coach was referring more to his offense, but it was his defense that went wire-to-wire on Friday including an interception at the 11-yard line with 1:56 remaining in the game by sophomore Daylin Huff that capped a 9-7 victory for the Cougars in the 28th annual renewal of ‘The War’ against Bullitt East.

  • THE WAR!! - Again! So much on the line in a big game

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – There will be no shortage of important things to play for on Friday when Bullitt East rolls into Shepherdsville for the 28th renewal with Bullitt Central of The War.

    Of course, the simple fact that it is Bullitt East against Bullitt Central will bring emotions boiling to the surface. The Chargers have a 19-8 lead in the series. During one stretch, the red and gold won ten straight meetings. Now, over the past nine seasons, the Chargers have only a 5-4 edge.

  • NB set for homecoming Friday

     HEBRON ESTATES – It will be Football Homecoming 2016 at North Bullitt on Friday as the Eagles play host to Class 5-A, District 3 rival Oldham County.

    Every high school football coach wants his plays to enjoy the events leading up to Friday night, but they all worry that a lack of focus can derail big things.

    North Bullitt head coach Adam Billings said he just had one simple message for his team on that topic early this week.
