    SHEPHERDSVILLE – Good football teams beat quality opponents in tough games. Successful teams find ways to win when they are not at their best.

         The Bullitt Central Cougars found success on Friday despite a drop off from their strong play a week earlier in beating Bullitt East as they scored in the final minute to turn back district rival Shelby County 18-16. The win was the eighth in a row for the maroon and gray to open the season.

    HEBRON ESTATES -- Despite winning the past two District 23 titles and having beaten its opponent earlier in the season, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles had no trouble focusing on the task at hand.

  • Still a lot on the line in...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – There is no Bullitt Cup on the line Friday in the annual renewal of The Clash, but Bullitt East and North Bullitt still have a lot to play for in the 35th meeting between the two programs on the gridiron.

    As has been the case for the past decade, this will be a district game for both teams in Class 5-A. North Bullitt stands at 0-2 in the district heading into the final district game for the green and gold while Bullitt East is 0-1 in the district following last week’s overtime loss to Bullitt Central.

  • No time for a let down by Central

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After three ‘big’ games in three weeks, two of them decided in overtime, the Bullitt Central Cougars will need to get up for another ‘big’ game this week when the team travels to Shelbyville for a Class 5-A, District 4 showdown with Shelby County.

    Bullitt Central and Shelby County are both undefeated in district play with the Cougars at 2-0 and the Rockets at 1-0 after beating North Bullitt 34-20 last Friday.

    For the first time since 1979, the Cougars can win a district title with a victory on Friday.

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – Once again this season, The Pioneer news will run the results from the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League in each Wednesday edition during the season.

    The statistics used each week are provided to the newspaper by the league and the individual teams. Questions about yardage, scoring and tackles should be directed to the league and those teams.

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – There is still an intra-county match on Thursday of this week when Bullitt East heads to North Bullitt for the final match of the regular season, but all three area teams are already looking ahead to district play which begins on Monday.

    In fact, the post-season will only last two days despite both the 23rd and 24th Districts having five teams. There will be three matches in both tournaments on Monday with championship action slated for Tuesday night.

     HEBRON ESTATES – Light? Who needs light for a high school soccer match?

         North Bullitt and Bullitt Central didn’t appear to need any sunlight to play soccer on Thursday. In a classic high school soccer match that went to overtime and beyond, the Eagles pulled out a 4-3 victory in the only meeting between the two rivals during the regular season.

         A year ago, the two teams played a 4-3 thriller at Bullitt Central, but that game ended with a late goal in regulation.

  • Taylor plays second day at state...

     BOWLING GREEN – Bullitt East sophomore Zach Taylor advanced to play on Day Two of the Boys’ Kentucky State Golf Tournament on Saturday, finishing up with one of the best finishes ever for a local player.

    Taylor played through the rain on Friday, finishing before play was suspended later in the afternoon with some players barely halfway through the round. After play resumed on Saturday morning, Taylor’s 78 was good enough to get him into the second round as one of the top-20 scores for players not on one of the top dozen teams.
