     HEBRON ESTATES – For the first time since 2011, the North Bullitt Eagles will be at home for a post-season game on Friday as they host the Doss Dragons in the first round of the Class 5-A, Region 2 play-offs.

    North Bullitt has completed one of the biggest turnarounds in the state this season, finishing the regular season with an 8-2 record after finishing 1-10 a year ago. That finish was good enough for the number two seed in District 4 behind South Oldham.

    Not for the Bullitt East Chargers. The red and gold should be very competitive on Friday when they travel to Fairdale to take on a Bulldog team that has posted a 6-4 record to finish second in Class 5-A, District 3. Bullitt East is the number three team from District 4.
