  • NB vs. speedy force in second-...

      HEBRON ESTATES – It will be unchartered territory for the North Bullitt Eagles and their head coach on Friday as the green and gold play in the second round of the Kentucky high school football playoffs for the first time since 2011.

    The Eagles have a big hurdle to clear as they have to go on the road to face Class 5-A, District 4 winner Fern Creek, a team that defeated Bullitt Central 30-0 in its opening playoff contest.

    The Tigers are 10-1 overall and are ranked fourth in Class 5-A while North Bullitt is 9-2 and ranked eighth.

  • 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.

  • Cougars are facing speedy Fern...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After battling to reach the play-offs, the Bullitt Central Cougars didn’t earn any favors as they will travel to Fern Creek on Friday to take on the 9-1 Tigers in the first round of the Class 5-A, Region 2 play-offs.

  • Chargers earn another meeting...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – For a lot of teams entering the post-season with just three wins during the regular season, the opening match is normally a formality with the end of the season near.

    Not for the Bullitt East Chargers. The red and gold should be very competitive on Friday when they travel to Fairdale to take on a Bulldog team that has posted a 6-4 record to finish second in Class 5-A, District 3. Bullitt East is the number three team from District 4.

  • Answers to common questions...

     FRANKFORT – The Information Center at the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources fields approximately 100,000 phone calls annually, and the call volume peaks from late October into early November as hunters inquire about rules and regulations for the statewide modern gun deer season. This year, it opens Nov. 14.

    An informal poll of Information Center staff members this week identified common questions about the season. Some of those questions - and answers to them - appear below.

  • Field now set for youth football...

     Ghosts and Goblins couldn’t stop The Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League as games on Halloween day decided the teams for Championship Saturday that will be held this week.

    Now, this coming weekend, all four finals will be held starting at noon with the Little Bullitts’ title game. The PeeWee final is set for 2 p.m. before play shifts to the big field with the ‘B’ final at 4 p.m. before the ‘A’ Division plays at 6 p.m.
