  • Defense makes enough big plays...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - A stout defensive effort in the second half saved the Bullitt East Chargers from district doom on Friday as the red and gold survived a scare from winless Shelby County to win 21-19.

    The final score was also the score at halftime. Bullitt East allowed the Rockets only 23 yards of offense after the break. Shelby County ran just four plays in Bullitt East territory in the second half and only had two first downs over the final 24 minutes.

    “Our defense carried us,” Bullitt East head coach Doug Preston said after the game.

  • Cougars score early and often...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The Bullitt Central Cougars had a golden opportunity to get a little of their mojo back on Friday as they took on a struggling Atherton squad.

    Bullitt Central took care of business and will now enter district play with a renewed confidence after blasting the Rebels 49-6.

  • BE 8th in Bluegrass Invitational

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - The fourth annual Lady Charger Invitational Bluegrass Invitational Golf Tournament went off without a hitch on Saturday at Heritage Hill Golf Course.

  • North Bullitt finds a way to get...

        HEBRON ESTATES - The play may not have been perfect but the outcome was sweet for coach Brett Newton and his North Bullitt Eagles.

        After finding ways to lose in their first two games, the Eagles came home and discovered how to find victory in a 21-7 win over the Woodford County Yellowjackets.

        Four interceptions, a blocked punt and a goal-line stand were all North Bullitt needed to improve its record to 1-2 on the season.

  • Grounded! Eagles pummel Wildcats...

        HEBRON ESTATES - Putting together its best four quarters of football this season, the North Bullitt Eagles are now entering a five-week stretch that will determine whether post-season play is in their future.

  • East needs to refocus Friday

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - The Bullitt East Chargers were flying high over the weekend after beating arch-rival Bullitt Central on Friday, but the red and gold need to get their feet firmly back on the ground quickly as they move into district play this week when they play host to Shelby County.

        Bullitt East played Shelby County a year ago, losing 63-15 in what was the low-water mark of the 2009 campaign.

  • North ready to battle Wildcats

        HEBRON ESTATES - The North Bullitt Eagles will get a chance to use some of their newly acquired confidence on Friday when they play host to Waggener in the final non-district regular season game until the final game of the season.

        North Bullitt snapped a nine-game losing streak last week with a 21-7 victory over Woodford County and they will be looking for more this week.

        A year ago, the Eagles turned back Waggener 23-9.

  • Central looks to bounce back big

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - Bullitt Central head coach Danny Leasor looked directly at his football team early this week and told them that Atherton is a better team than the one his team decimated 64-6 a year ago.

        The coach then made eye contact and said that there was no chance of his team losing to the Rebels this Friday when Atherton visits for a non-district contest.

  • Bluegrass Speedway racing...
