  • East battles but Central Hardin just too tough

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The outcome still wasn’t what anyone wanted, but Bullitt East head coach Mark Sander was much happier with the effort before his Chargers dropped a 44-10 decision to Class 6-A power Central Hardin.

    Coming on the heels of the 53-0 season-opening loss to Butler during which the team failed to rally from an early 13-0 deficit, this week the red and gold stayed the course and stayed in the game against another powerful foe.

  • Eagles show plenty of fight in Friday’s victory

     HEBRON ESTATES -- After a tough outing against one of the select teams in the hunt for a 6-A state championship year in and year out, North Bullitt head coach Adam Billings was looking for one thing this week.

    Fight.

    And, he felt his Eagles gave him the fight and determination he was looking for in the 47-20 victory over the Southern Trojans.

    “We’re going to get better each week,” Billings said of his young team.

    The host got off to q good start.

  • Cougars aren’t afraid of any Bears

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Some would label it redemption.

    Others would say it was revenge.

    What everyone would call it was a huge statement for Bullitt Central football on Friday as the maroon and gray beat visiting Spencer County 38-13.

    It was just two seasons ago on the very same field that Spencer County rushed for 737 yards in a 77-42 win over the Cougars. Needless to say, Bullitt Central’s defensive coordinator at the time didn’t get any sleep that night.

  • Lady Eagles off to a hot start

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Scoring five times in the first 20 minutes of the game, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles showed that they are still the class of the 23rd District on Monday as they rolled past Bullitt Central 10-0.

    In fact, North Bullitt rolled through everyone during the first week of the season. Besides defeating the Lady Cougars, the green and gold also mauled Ballard 8-0 and Butler 9-3. That doesn’t even count a game against Fern Creek in which North Bullitt was up 6-0 just 22 minutes into the contest before heavy rains stopped the game.

  • Friday Night Lights!

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Both Bullitt Central and North Bullitt will be at home this Friday night while Bullitt East heads out on the road.

    Bullitt Central will get to face one of the top players in the area on Friday when Spencer County and senior running back/defensive back Kadin Smith, who has already committed to Purdue, comes to town. Smith carried the ball 16 times for 276 yards as he scored four touchdowns as the Bears mauled Bardstown 36-14 last Friday.

    Spencer County has beaten the Cougars each of the past two seasons.

  • BE has too much for rivals in Bullitt Cup renewal

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – It was all Bullitt East on Saturday as the Chargers couldn’t even be slowed by lightning as they rolled to title in the renewal of the Bullitt Cup.

    After a short hiatus, the Bullitt Cup returned on Saturday with all three of the Bullitt County high school boys’ teams taking part on the refurbished field at Bullitt East. The Chargers, with a senior-dominated squad, had no problems, rolling to an 9-1 win over North Bullitt in the first game and then cruising past Bullitt Central 8-0 in the second contest.

  • Cougars have just enough to beat the Cougars

     FAIRDALE – After misfiring on a couple of promising drives in the first half, the Bullitt Central Cougars marched 70 yards in seven plays at the end of the third quarter for a touchdown and then turned it over to the defense on Saturday to beat Holy Cross 7-0 in the inaugural King of the Bluegrass Bowl at Fairdale High School.

    This was also the first meeting ever between Bullitt Central and Holy Cross in football even though the two schools often play each other in various other sports.

  • BC girls ready to improve with better numbers

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Needless to say, the 2016 girls’ soccer season did not end the way that Bullitt Central head coach Stephanie Porter wanted.

    Battling injuries and low numbers most of the season, the team had to withdraw from the 23rd District Tournament when several more players would not have been able to play because they were going to be out of town as Fall Break fell on that week.

  • Chargers struggle mightily in opening setback

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Trailing 13-0 less than five minutes into the game, the Bullitt East Chargers never put up a fight on Friday, dropping a 53-0 decision at home to Class 6-A rival Butler.

    The loss was not as upsetting to second year Charger head coach Mark Sander as it was the fact that his team never responded after Butler struck for the two early touchdowns.

    After it was 33-0 at halftime, the Bears added a touchdown five minutes into the third quarter and there was a running clock for the rest of the game.

  • Youthful North comes up short on the road

     GEORGETOWN — Adam Billings told his team exactly what to expect when they hit the road to take on one of the top teams in the state of Kentucky.

    And the Scott County Cardinals definitely lived up to Billings’ expectations.

    The Class 6-A title contender scored on the opening kicking and never looked back in defeating North Bullitt by a 56-19 count.

    But, the Eagles did win the second half 19-7.
