  • Chargers end draught with win...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- Did it rain on Friday night?

    If you ask the Bullitt East football players and staff members, they may not know.

    What they did know is that after a tough pre-district stretch, Bullitt East got the “real” season started with a fantastic 35-6 victory over Nelson County.

    In a constant rain, the Charger defense completely snuffed out the Cardinal offense.

    The visitors had only 71 yards in total offense, including a minus three on 21 rushing attempts.

  • Classic!! Duel in the Rain goes...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Trailing for the first time all night with just 4:42 remaining in the 40th renewal of The Game, the North Bullitt Eagles didn’t panic and they didn’t try to get fancy.

  • Pair of 4-1 teams set to clash...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – There will be even more than normal on the line Friday when North Bullitt and Bullitt Central collide in the 40th renewal of The Game.

    The county rivalry angle has always been powerful in this series, but this year the district and play-off implication also come into play at a greater importance.

  • Offenses rule and so does...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Is the glass half full or half empty?

    Is it good offense or bad defense?

    There was plenty of that to mull over in the aftermath of one of the highest producing offensive high school football games in Kentucky history on Friday, a game that Spencer County won 77-42 over Bullitt Central despite the Bears throwing just two passes.

    In the end, the two offensive juggernauts combined for 1,338 yards of total offense. Spencer County set a new state record with 734 yards on the ground.

  • Third quarter sinks BE’s hopes...

     SHELBYVILLE – Inconsistency continues to consistently haunt the Bullitt East Chargers this season.

    After battling undefeated Shelby County to a 7-7 tie at halftime, the Chargers turned the ball over three times in the third quarter, allowing the Rockets to score four times on drives of less than 30 yards. That was more than Bullitt East could overcome as Shelby County recorded a 35-7 win.

    The loss dropped Bullitt East to 0-5 entering district play this week when they take on visiting Nelson County. The Friday night game will also be homecoming.

  • Good Knight for King James,...

     HEBRON ESTATES -- The worst thing that could have happened to the Marion County Knights happened.

    North Bullitt got beat pretty handily by an undefeated Shelby County team the prior Friday night.

    The second worst thing to happen was that Eagle senior Logan James was back to nearly 100 percent after being injured the previous two games.

    Combine those two things, along with the excitement of a big homecoming crowd, North Bullitt sailed to an easy 40-6.

  • Clash of unbeatens as Spencer...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Bullitt Central will have an opportunity to find just where they stand heading into district play this Friday when they play host to undefeated Spencer County in a big matchup of neighbors.

    The two 4-0 teams have been drawing a lot of interest in the area this season for two different philosophies – Spencer County for running the ball and Bullitt Central for putting it in the air.

  • Youth football back in action...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Once again this season, The Pioneer news will run the results from the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League in each Wednesday edition during the season.

    The statistics used each week are provided to the newspaper by the league and the individual teams. Questions about yardage, scoring and tackles should be directed to the league and those teams.

  • Turf battle wages over use of...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Is there enough property at the Frank E. Simon Park to accommodate two sports organizations involved with the youth of the community?

    That might be a question that must be answered in the near future.

    But, for now, the Bullitt County YMCA and the Shepherdsville Titans football and cheerleading program will do just that -- co-exist.

    In the past, the Shepherdsville football organization has practiced in the city park off Highway 44 West.

  • It just pours on Eagles in...

     HEBRON ESTATES – Into just about every football season a little rain must fall.

    On Friday night, against undefeated Shelby County, it poured on the North Bullitt Eagles.

    That is figuratively, not literally, although it did rain a little in the game.

    North Bullitt had also bolted out to a 3-0 start this season, but they were no match for the more athletic Rockets. Shelby County was up 21-7 after the first quarter and the lead kept growing until there was a running clock in the second half en route to a 56-7 outcome.
