  • Eagles make strong run before falling on the road

     LEITCHFIELD - The Grayson County Cougars looked a lot better in person than on film.

    And quarterback Talon Gary, who had seen as much time at wide receiver, may have played his best game in directing the Cougar offense to 34-26 victory over the North Bullitt Eagles.

    The loss ended the season for  coach Brett Newton’s team.

    The Cougars will advance to a Friday night battle against the homestanding Bullitt East Chargers in the second round of the playoffs.

  • East grabs first post-season win since ‘08

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – A golden defensive effort was more than enough for the Bullitt East Chargers on Friday as they opened the Class 5-A play-offs at home with a 30-7 victory over North Hardin.

    The win was the first for Bullitt East in post-season play since 2008 when the red and gold won four straight games before losing in the state final to Bell County.

    It was just two years ago that North Hardin last made a visit to Mount Washington for the play-offs. In 2011, the Trojans left with a 35-14 victory.

  • Bullitt East opens with an athletic Trojan squad

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Charges will open the Class 5-A football play-offs on Friday at home against North Hardin, a team with a 1-9 record.

    But don’t be fooled too much. The Trojans have played a relatively difficult schedule. More importantly, Bullitt East head coach Darrell Vincent sees a North Hardin team with a lot of athletes who score a lot of points.

    “They are very athletic,” Vincent said on Monday. “It’s hard to believe their record is 1-9.”

  • NB hits the road Friday

      LEITCHFIELD – The North Bullitt Eagles will open the 2013 Class 5-A play-offs on the road on Friday as they travel to Grayson County to take on the Cougars.

    This will be the second meeting in three years between the two schools in the post-season. In 2011, Grayson County made the trip to North Bullitt for a game won by the Eagles 27-7.

  • Central has a tough opener

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The bigger the opponent, the bigger the glory from an upset.

    That is the mindset this week for the Bullitt Central Cougars as they will head to Radcliff on Friday to take on traditional Kentucky power John Hardin in the first-round of the Class 5-A play-offs.

  • Champs - Lady Chargers win Regional CC crown

     LOUISVILLE – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers introduced themselves to Class AAA with a bang on Saturday, winning the Region 3 title with a powerful performance against some of the top teams in the area.

    Led by sophomore Sierra Poppell, who finished second, the Lady Chargers had four of the top nine runners to finish with 35 points. Defending champion Manual was second 49 points while Male was third with 91 points with Butler was fourth with 93 points.

  • ‘Oh so close’ is just ‘oh-no’ for Bullitt East boys

     LOUISVILLE – There was more than a little disappointment after the boys’ race in the Class AAA, Region 3 Cross-Country Championships for the Bullitt East Chargers.

    Amazingly, the Bullitt East boys’ team didn’t come up a point short of qualifying for this week’s Kentucky State Cross-Country Championships. The Chargers came up zero points short.

  • Cougars get offense back in gear but falls to SO

     CRESTWOOD -- Looking to gain some momentum for a playoff run which starts on Friday, the Bullitt Central Cougars were looking to get back on the winning track Friday on the road.

  • Chargers find energy; easily defeats Dogs

    FAIRDALE -- The beginning may not have been what Bullitt East football coach Darrell Vincent was looking for.

  • BC needs to be on a mission at South Oldham

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Often no more than a tune-up for the opening of the play-offs the following week, this Friday’s final games of the regular season have more importance than normal for Bullitt Central and North Bullitt as they go on the road.

    Tied with Shelby County in the district standings, the Eagles and Cougars need to garner wins if they want any chance to overtake the Rockets for the number two seed and a home play-off game next Friday. With losses, both teams will be on the road next week.
