  • Eagles need to keep playing big

        HEBRON ESTATES - With two straight wins under their belt, the North Bullitt Eagles have renewed confidence heading into the first district game of the season on Friday at Shelby County.

        Following wins over Woodford County and Waggener, the new-look Eagles have reinvented themselves. When the season began, head coach Brett Newton was preparing his team to have balance on offense. After struggling again in the passing game early in the season, the team has morphed into a powerful running squad.

  • BE will need 'A' game...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - The Bullitt East Chargers will get to play on artificial turf this week and it’s not even the state championship game.

        The red and gold will instead get to play on the perfectly green grass at the new Martha Layne Collins High School in Shelbyville in a key district game for both teams. Collins was formed this school year with the split of Shelby County High School.

  • Wibbels to miss BC homecoming

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - Bullitt Central got some bad news over the weekend when it was learned that starting quarterback Damion Wibbels will miss at least one week of action due to a shoulder injury suffered in the lopsided win over Atherton last Friday.

        That will thrust sophomore Bradley Combs into the signal caller duties this week when the Cougars start district play with a home contest against dangerous Waggener.

  • 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.

        As expected, the top three teams from last year’s Kentucky State Golf Tournament led a top field of teams at the end.

  • Power Failure Cancels Racing at...

    Power Failure Cancels Racing at Bluegrass Speedway

     

         BARDSTOWN - About halfway through UMP Street Stock time trials at 7:30 p.m., a widespread power outage occurred in the Nelson County area and after a one hour delay, track promoters David and Anita Ferrell were forced to cancel the racing program for the evening.

     

  • 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.

        The Eagles completed its early season non-district schedule with a 55-7 pasting of the visiting Waggener Wildcats.

  • 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.
