  • Monday’s rain plays havoc with...

     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...

     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...

     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...

     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...

     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.

  • Just two weeks remain in the...

     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.

  • Cooler temps heat up fall bass...

     FRANKFORT – The orange tint in the tops of mature trees portend what is coming our way. Cool nights with crisp, gorgeous days signal not only some of the best days of the year in Kentucky, but also the beginning of the fall reservoir fishing season for largemouth bass.

    September is typically the driest month of the year and the water in many lakes becomes air-clear. The clear water combined with the lingering summer thermal stratification of the lake makes predator fish lethargic and skittish. This leads to tough fishing.

  • East gets first shot at beating...

     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.

  • Lady Eagles get second net...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Volleyball is really the only remaining sport where the three Bullitt County teams take the court against each other, each year, on a home-and-home basis.

    That is good for fans, but no longer means that the games are played for anything more than pride.

    That was the case on Tuesday of last week when North Bullitt traveled to Bullitt Central for the second meeting. In fact, it is probably the second of three meetings this fall between the 23rd District rivals.
