     BARDSTOWN – Scoring three times in the third quarter, the Bullitt Central Cougars rallied from a 14-0 halftime hole on Friday and defeated Dixie Heights 18-14 in the first round of the Class 5-A, Region 2 football play-offs.

     COVINGTON -- On a cold, breezy November night, the Bullitt East Chargers learned a valuable lesson.

    No matter the effort, it is hard when a team has been riddled with injuries to go onto an opponent’s field and come out the victor.

    And, when that opponent is the top ranked team in at least one poll, that task borders on the impossible.

    Covington Catholic displayed why many think the Colonels is the best team in Kentucky with a 56-14 victory.

    This came in the first round of the Class 5A post-season tournament.

    And no matter that you have 13 of your teammates unable to play on Friday night due to injuries.

    Just go play the game.
