  • 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.

  • Weather finally relents for BC’s passing attack

     BUCKNER – Mother Nature finally smiled on the Cougars Friday and Bullitt Central responded with another huge offensive performance as they beat district rival Oldham County 42-24.

    The win snapped a three game losing streak and kept coach Tye Lawson’s team in the hunt for a post-season berth with two games remaining in the regular season.

  • Eagles regain focus at halftime; beat Nelson

     BARDSTOWN – First-year North Bullitt head coach Adam Billings admitted that his halftime talk on Friday of the team’s game against district rival Nelson County was short on details and long on emotion.

    This was not the first fiery speech that the coach had ever given, but this was a time when the Eagle players took the speech to heart and transferred that emotion to the field in the second half.

  • Dragons breath fire to end Chargers’ win streak

     CRESTWOOD – Things were so bad for the Bullitt East Chargers on Friday that they actually had to start on Thursday.

    It was on the final practice before the game against South Oldham when Charger head coach Darrell Vincent found out that junior quarterback Zack Kessler would not be able to play on Friday. Kessler, who already missed games earlier in the season with a shoulder injury, was still complaining about soreness there and a new inspection raised the concern of a broken bone.

  • East gets first shot at beating South Oldham

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Bullitt East will get the first shot at South Oldham this Friday as the Class 5-A, District 3 slate passes the halfway point.

    Over the final three weeks of district play South Oldham will face the three Bullitt County schools on consecutive Fridays. After Bullitt East this week, the Dragons will take on Bullitt Central and then finish with North Bullitt.

  • North secures No. 1 seed

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The outcome was never really in doubt, but it was still a celebration worth having after the North Bullitt Lady Eagles once again wrapped up the top seed for next week’s 23rd District Girls’ Soccer Tournament.

    By beating Bullitt Central 11-1, the Lady Eagles once again were undefeated within the district during the regular season. It is the fourth straight year, all four years of this alignment, that the green and gold have had the number one seed for the district tournament.
