  • East girls still a goal short

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers keep beating on the door against the Mercy Jaguars, but the red and gold keep coming up a goal short.

    That was the case again on Thursday in the championship game of the Girls’ 24th District Tournament on the Lady Chargers’ home field. In the fourth straight meeting in the final between two of the area’s top teams, Mercy pulled out another tight win, holding on for the 3-2 victory.

  • BE boys advance to regional

     FERN CREEK – For the first time since realignment put Bullitt East in the 24th District at the start of the 2012 season, the Chargers advanced to the championship game and earned a spot in this week’s Sixth Region Tournament at Mercy High School.

    Bullitt East had earned the number two seed for the district tournament, but that didn’t seem very important when the team found itself down 2-0 at halftime in the opening round game against Jeffersontown.

  • BC vs. BE on boys’ side; NB vs. BE in girls’ semis

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- For the first time since joining the Sixth Region for the 2012 season, not one, but two Bullitt County boys’ soccer teams made the field for this week’s event at Mercy High School.

    Not only are there two teams in the field, but Bullitt Central and Bullitt East will play each other on Tuesday in an opening round match, meaning that one local team will at least reach Thursday’s semi-finals.

  • Dragons flex muscles over BC; await North next

     CRESTWOOD -- When you are facing a talented team that executes well and is well coached, there is not a lot of room to make mistakes.

    For the first quarter on Friday night, the visiting Bullitt Central Cougars were hanging around. 

    However, by the end of the night, it would be the homesteading South Oldham Dragons who would move on with a 43-13 victory.

    “They are a very good team,” said Cougar head coach The Lawson. “They are the best team in the district.”

  • THE CLASH!: Eagles score early then survive BE rally

      HEBRON ESTATES – Scoring 21 points in the first quarter seemed to be more than enough for the North Bullitt Eagles on Friday in the annual renewal of The Clash against Bullitt East.

    In the end, it turned out to be barely enough for the green and gold as they had to hold off a late Bullitt East rally, the final thrust ending when Daulton Walls intercepted a pass at the 19 yard line with less than a minute remaining in the contest.

    North Bullitt’s 21-15 win did two major things for the Eagles.

  • THE CLASH: Winner-take-all for Bullitt Cup on Friday

     HEBRON ESTATES – There will be a lot at stake on Friday when Bullitt East makes the short trip over Bells Mill Road to battle rival North Bullitt in the annual renewal of The Clash.

    This will be the 36th meeting between the two schools in football, but some years have had multiple meetings. The Eagles and Chargers have met every year since 1981 except for 1987. Bullitt East presently holds a 20-15 advantage in the rivalry.

  • East’s Taylor makes state golf tourney cut

     BOWLING GREEN – Back-to-back is normally a good thing when you are talking about returning to the Leachman Buick-GMC-Cadillac KHSAA Boys High School State Championship.

    While getting back to the big event was certainly good news for the Bullitt East Chargers, the first time the program had gone back-to-back, the team may have taken the back-to-back mantra a little too far.

  • East stands tall on Fall Break

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The post-season for area volleyball teams will start on Monday with play in both the 23rd and 24th District Tournaments.

    In the 23rd District, North Bullitt will be trying to make it five straight titles in an event that they will host this year.

    Play for the five teams in the district will start on Monday with three games. The feed-in game has Southern taking on Evangel. The only match that either team has won this year was Southern beating Evangel during the regular season.

  • Monday’s rain plays havoc with 23rd District soccer tournaments

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The 23rd District Soccer Tournaments lost the battle to Mother Nature on Monday as only one of four scheduled games were completed before rain and lightning sent teams to safe areas and later home.

    The only game that got completed was the first boys’ semi-final at Moore High School. In that contest, Southern jumped out to an early advantage and the top-seeded Trojans went on to beat Moore 5-1.

  • Post-season play for soccer teams starts Monday

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- The high school soccer post-season in the area will start with a big bang on Monday when North Bullitt and Bullitt Central clash in the opening round of the 23rd District Tournament at Moore High School.

    In the only meeting between the two rivals this season, North Bullitt pulled out a 3-1 victory in a hotly contested game at Bullitt Central.

    This will be the first meeting between the two rivals in the post-season since 2012. North Bullitt won that meeting 2-0 in the first year of the present alignment.
