  • Youth league teams in the...

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

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

  • East's Pruitt hits the mark...

    FAIRDALE – Firing the best 18-hole score of her career, Bullitt East senior Olivia Pruitt qualified for this week’s Girls’ Kentucky State Golf Tournament at the Bowling Green Country Club.

    Playing in the Third Region Tournament at the South Park Country Club, on Tuesday, Pruitt finished with an 88, good enough for seventh in the field of over 60 players.

    “I was looking for an 88,” Pruitt said after getting her medal for a top-eight finish. “At the beginning, I was thinking about getting to state.”

  • Carnell's kick return...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Almost ten minutes into the 38th renewal of The Game, the Bullitt Central Cougars were down 14-0 and didn’t appear to be going anywhere fast.

    That all changed in about ten seconds.

    That is about as long as it took for Bullitt Central junior sensation Trevor Carnell to return a kick-off 85 yards for a touchdown.

  • Offense to defense; What a...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – I could have predicted a lot of stuff about Friday’s renewal of The Game.

    One thing I wouldn’t have predicted was 81 points being scored. Not after last season when the two teams pretty much stood in the middle of the field and slugged it out before Bullitt Central won 7-6 at North Bullitt.

  • Major changes in place for...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Fans attending Friday’s Bullitt Central-North Bullitt football game, often times the biggest attended event of the year in the county, will have to use new temporary entrances to Bullitt Central’s George Valentine Field.

    Because of construction at the school, 71 parking spots nearest the old tennis courts have been fenced off and will not be available for the rest of this football season. In addition, the two normal entrance gates will not be available on Friday.

  • THE GAME: County’s oldest...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – What a difference two weeks can make.

    At that point in the 2013 football season, Bullitt Central appeared to be a few steps ahead of arch-rival North Bullitt. On a Friday night, North Bullitt was struggling through a 33-0 loss to Oldham County that dropped them to 1-3 while Bullitt Central was sitting at 3-0 waiting for a trip to Paducah the next day.

  • North holds off furious BC rally...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Playing for the second time in 10 days, the outcome was much the same on Monday as North Bullitt pinned a second defeat on arch-rival Bullitt Central in five games.

    North Bullitt, after winning the first two games in convincing fashion, had to pull it back together in the final game to win 15-6. The final score was 25-13, 25-16, 17-25, 17-25, 15-6.

  • A single stroke keeps Chargers...

     FAIRDALE – Before Monday’s Region 5 Boys’ Golf Tournament, Bullitt East senior Michael Murphy told head coach Kyle Downs that he wanted to know if the team needed a certain score down the stretch.

    Murphy knew that playing in the final group of the day that the team chase might come down to one shot.

    Knowing that information is not something that every golfer wants to be told about when they are playing in a major event. The pressure is already high and that can make it suffocating.

  • Key miscues haunt Cougars in E-...

     ELIZABETHTOWN – Despite collecting 469 yards of offense, the Bullitt Central Cougars came up short on Friday as they dropped a second straight game on the road, falling at Elizabethtown 42-21.

         The Cougars led 7-0 after the first series of the game and the game was sited at 14-14 late in the third quarter before the Panthers scored on four straight possessions to break the game open.

  • East gallops past Colonels with...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – It’s hard to score if you don’t have the ball.

         The Bullitt East Chargers gave the saying some backbone on Friday as they ran 35 more plays from scrimmage than visiting Oldham County. That was the difference as the red and gold won for the fifth time in six outings this fall, beating the Colonels 38-21.
