  • Charger Gold turns tables on Red...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- It was a neighborhood battle on Saturday.

    It was a game of teams with players who had been teammates in the past.

    And it was a game in which many will become teammates once again at Bullitt East.

    On this particular evening, the top seeded East Gold would defeat the East Red for the right to be called champions of the A Division in the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League.

    The 28-14 victory capped off an undefeated season for coach John Jutz’ team.

  • Vikings complete sweep en route...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Entering the playoffs as the fourth seed, the Cedar Grove Vikings had a little work to do.

    And work they did do as the Vikings advanced to the championship game of the Little Bullitts Division of the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League.

    The last hurdle would be the second-seeded Mount Washington Colts.

    At the end of the day, it would be mission accomplished for coach Pat Bristoe and his Vikings.

    Cedar Grove took home the championship trophy with a 20-12 victory.

  • Big plays, tough defense carries...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Good defense wins championships.

    The Pleasant Grove Dolphins proved that on Saturday and they took home the championship for the Pee Wee division of the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League.

    Two big plays and a suffocating defense led the Dolphins to the 12-0 victory over the Maryville Patriots.

    Quarterback Carson Waddle took the ball on the opening Dolphin drive and would score on its third play.

    He ran 48 yards for the touchdown with 4:01 left in the opening period.

  • Old Mill has too much firepower...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- The Lebanon Junction Jaguars had done something that’s difficult to do -- be a No. 5 seed who earns its way to the championship game.

    But that happened as the Jaguars would face the Old Mill Bengals in the championship game of the B division for the Greater Bullitt Youth Football League on Saturday.

    The dream season ended as the Bengals had too much offense and defense as Old Mill recorded a 39-0 victory.

    Coach Brandon Egan’s team scored on its opening possession and never looked back.

  • East’s Poppell finishes 12th in...

      LEXINGTON – It wasn’t quite the final placing that she had envisioned, but Bullitt East senior Sierra Poppell was still smiling after finishing 12th on Saturday at the Kentucky State Cross-Country Championships at the Kentucky Horse Park.

    This was the fourth straight run at the state championships for Poppell and she had her best time ever over the 5K course. However, Poppell’s time of 19:06.39 was only good for 12th. As a sophomore she had finished 11th and last year was in sixth place at the finish.

  • First half is a disaster for BE...

     FAIRDALE – All high school football seasons come to an end.

    But few high school football seasons will come to as an abrupt end as the 2015 season did for the Bullitt East Chargers.

    Coach Darrell Vincent’s team had been up and down during the regular season, but they seemed to be in position to erase some of the bad memories as they prepared to take on Fairdale on Friday in the first-round of the Kentucky Class 5-A Football play-offs.


  • BE’s Duvall commits to UK

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – Bullitt East standout guard Lindsey Duvall, a junior, announced last week that she has committed to play at the University of Kentucky and head coach Matthew Mitchell.

    Just recently, Duvall had moved up to 10th in the country among players in the Class of 2017 by ESPNW and was given five stars by numerous recruiting services.

    Toward the end, Duvall had whittled her list of schools to five and had in-home visits this fall with Kentucky, Louisville, Michigan, Ohio State and Colorado.

  • Defense excels early but BC’s...

     FERN CREEK – Bullitt Central shut down Fern Creek’s number one option on Friday in the first round of the Kentucky Class 5-A Play-offs.

    Unfortunately, the Tigers’ second and third options were more than the Cougars could handle.

    Despite getting the best defensive performance of the season and only trailing 9-0 at halftime to one of the area’s most athletic teams, the Cougars could not muster enough offense to make a run in the second half as Fern Creek pulled away late for the 30-0 win.

  • Eagles ‘good’ in Doss win;...

     HEBRON ESTATES -- Adam Billings believes he has a pretty good football team.

    But the first-year head coach wants his North Bullitt Eagles to be better. And he must convince the players that they want to be better.

    On Friday night, Billings and his Eagles will learn if they have moved to that next level as they advance to the second round of the post-season.

    The Eagles will play at Fern Creek after moving past the Doss Dragons 34-6 on Friday.

  • North Bullitt at home for first...

     HEBRON ESTATES – For the first time since 2011, the North Bullitt Eagles will be at home for a post-season game on Friday as they host the Doss Dragons in the first round of the Class 5-A, Region 2 play-offs.

    North Bullitt has completed one of the biggest turnarounds in the state this season, finishing the regular season with an 8-2 record after finishing 1-10 a year ago. That finish was good enough for the number two seed in District 4 behind South Oldham.
