  • East cannot overcome CAL or a monsoon

     MOUNT WASHINGTON --  Just play the game and don’t worry about the scoreboard.

    That’s the motto of Bullitt East head football coach Mark Sander.

    No matter that you are playing in a driving rain.

    And no matter that you playing a defending state championship calibre opponent.

    And no matter that you have 13 of your teammates unable to play on Friday night due to injuries.

    Just go play the game.

     HIGHVIEW — An historic battle was on the horizon. 

    The only thing between a first-time regional matchup in the girls’ soccer finals was the requirement that the two Bullitt County teams took care of business on Wednesday.

    And, in fine fashion, North Bullitt and Bullitt East did their job and advanced to the Sixth Region final at Mercy Academy.

    While neither coach felt their team would overlook their semifinal opponents, both admitted they took a lot of time warning their players of overlooking their opponents.
