  • Billings sure Eagles will be better with lessons learned

          HEBRON ESTATES -- When the North Bullitt Eagles took a lopsided loss to Shelby County earlier in the season, head coach Adam Billings saw his team use that experience to improve.


          And he expects the same after a tough 39-7 loss on Friday to South Oldham.


          The victory gave the visiting Dragons the district title, with North Bullitt finishing as the runner-up. Both will be hosting playoff games on Nov. 7.


  • East is getting healthy at right time of season

          MOUNT WASHINGTON -- It was a great way to cap off the regular season.

          Celebrating senior night, the Bullitt East Chargers had a big 28-point second quarter in defeating the visiting Oldham County Colonels 38-14 on Friday.

          With a bye week this Friday, Bullitt East head coach Darrell Vincent can look forward to preparing for a first-round playoff game on the road Nov. 7.

  • District title on the line Friday at North

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After nine weeks and numerous games, the high school football regular season for the three Bullitt County teams will come to an end with a lot riding on the games for both North Bullitt and Bullitt Central.

    After playing this Friday night, all of the Bullitt County teams will be off next week. The play-offs will then start for all teams on Friday, Nov. 6.

    North Bullitt and Bullitt East have already stamped their ticket for the post-season and Bullitt Central can join the party with a win at home on Friday against Nelson County.

    In the Sixth Region tournament, it was a huge night for Bullitt East’s Christian Foster.

    She scored all five goals in the Lady Chargers’ first-round romp over Pleasure Ridge Park.

     HIGHVIEW -- Forget any bomb threat at their school.

    The Bullitt Central Cougar soccer team declared that it was ‘the bomb’ on Thursday night.

    Dating back until at least 2000, this version of the Cougar boys’ soccer team did what no others had done -- advanced to the Sixth Region tournament.

    And it collected the 23rd District crown by winning the penalty kick shootout 4-3.

    Neither Bullitt Central nor Southern could get a kick past the respective goalies in regulation and two overtime periods.

  • NB girls stay in control in 23rd District

     HEBRON ESTATES – The North Bullitt Lady Eagles continue to make it look easy, winning a fourth straight 23rd District title on Wednesday, beating Bullitt Central 6-0.

  • 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.
