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.
