  • Late reprieve - NB and BE will...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – A winter reprieve. Sort of.

    With the start of the high school basketball season just a few weeks away (Dec. 2), Bullitt County fans did get some good news in the past ten days when Bullitt East and North Bullitt announced that the two schools will play a basketball game against each other this winter.

  • Poppell leads Lady Chargers to...

     LEXINGTON – Bullitt East sophomore Sierra Poppell overcame breezy conditions on Saturday to post the best finish ever for a Bullitt County runner when she finished 11th in the Class AAA Kentucky State Cross-Country Championships.

    Running over the 5K course at the Kentucky Horse Park, Poppell competed against some of the top runners in the state before finishing with a time of 19:28 to finish just off the podium in a field of 235 runners.

  • Awful opening half sinks Cougars...

      RADCLIFF – A season that had started so quickly for Bullitt Central, came to an even quicker end on Friday as the Cougars were bumped from the Class 5-A play-offs by traditional power John Hardin by a 43-14 score.

    For all intents and purposes, this game was over midway through the second quarter. By the 6:01 mark, the Bulldogs had pulled ahead 36-0, putting the running clock in order for the rest of the game. John Hardin scored on six of seven possessions in the first half and led 43-0 by halftime. The Cougars did not score until the fourth quarter.

  • Eagles make strong run before...

     LEITCHFIELD - The Grayson County Cougars looked a lot better in person than on film.

    And quarterback Talon Gary, who had seen as much time at wide receiver, may have played his best game in directing the Cougar offense to 34-26 victory over the North Bullitt Eagles.

    The loss ended the season for  coach Brett Newton’s team.

    The Cougars will advance to a Friday night battle against the homestanding Bullitt East Chargers in the second round of the playoffs.

  • East grabs first post-season win...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – A golden defensive effort was more than enough for the Bullitt East Chargers on Friday as they opened the Class 5-A play-offs at home with a 30-7 victory over North Hardin.

    The win was the first for Bullitt East in post-season play since 2008 when the red and gold won four straight games before losing in the state final to Bell County.

    It was just two years ago that North Hardin last made a visit to Mount Washington for the play-offs. In 2011, the Trojans left with a 35-14 victory.

  • Bullitt East opens with an...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Charges will open the Class 5-A football play-offs on Friday at home against North Hardin, a team with a 1-9 record.

    But don’t be fooled too much. The Trojans have played a relatively difficult schedule. More importantly, Bullitt East head coach Darrell Vincent sees a North Hardin team with a lot of athletes who score a lot of points.

    “They are very athletic,” Vincent said on Monday. “It’s hard to believe their record is 1-9.”

  • NB hits the road Friday

      LEITCHFIELD – The North Bullitt Eagles will open the 2013 Class 5-A play-offs on the road on Friday as they travel to Grayson County to take on the Cougars.

    This will be the second meeting in three years between the two schools in the post-season. In 2011, Grayson County made the trip to North Bullitt for a game won by the Eagles 27-7.

  • Central has a tough opener

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The bigger the opponent, the bigger the glory from an upset.

    That is the mindset this week for the Bullitt Central Cougars as they will head to Radcliff on Friday to take on traditional Kentucky power John Hardin in the first-round of the Class 5-A play-offs.

  • Chiefs tight at start but...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Think about a team going the entire season without allowing a touchdown.

    And think about only allowing three first downs.

    Those were the stats for the Overdale Chiefs in the A division of the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League this year.

    Going into the championship game a huge favorite against the Mount Washington Colts, Overdale players, coaches and fans may have been a bit shocked to see the Chiefs behind at halftime.

  • Colts able to slow down fast...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Coming into the championship game of the B division for the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League, there was the perfect opportunity for a monumental upset.

    Having a perfect season, the Mount Washington Colts had every reason to be confident.

    And facing a Shepherdsville Titan team which was a sixth seed and had won only two games in the regular season, the Colts may have been a bit overconfident.

    That is what concerned Colt coach Matt Cashon.
