  • East grabs 1-0 win over North

    BARDSTOWN - It would be some consolation but it least the Bullitt East Lady Charger soccer team got to fight for another day.

    With its 1-0 victory over North Bullitt in the District 9 soccer tournament in Nelson County, Bullitt East had the challenge to face the top-seeded Bethlehem squad in the semifinals Monday night.

    On Sunday, the local teams had to switch to an elementary school facility due to heavy rains making the Nelson County football field unplayable.

    It was an evenly-played contest as both teams had numerous attempts on goal.

  • Chargers' soccer campaign...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - Bullitt East’s dream soccer season ended with a bitter disappointment last week as the red and gold were eliminated from post-season play with a 4-3 loss to Nelson County in two overtimes.

    Few soccer games will ever have as much emotion as this one did in the semi-finals of the Ninth District Tournament. This was the fourth straight year that the two rivals have met at this stage of the post-season. In 2006 and 2007 it was Bullitt East winning before Nelson County turned the tables last year.

  • Bluegrass Speedway 2009...

    BARDSTOWN - With the racing portion of the 2009 racing season completed, Bluegrass Speedway track promoters David and Anita Ferrell will officially wrap up the 2009 racing campaign with their 10th Annual Championship Awards Banquet on Saturday evening November 14 at Samuels Hall, located next door to Bluegrass Speedway at the Nelson County Fairgrounds.

  • Cross-country regionals set for...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - For perhaps the first time in history, all three Bullitt County high schools could field full teams this week in the regional cross-country meets in Jefferson County.

    While all the schools have had programs in recent years, they didn’t always have enough to fill all the spots available. In cross-country, teams can run as many as seven runners in a meet with the top five times earning team points.

  • Play-off ticket prices

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - With two Bullitt County teams playing at home this week in the first round of the state football play-offs, fans should note that there are a few changes in the ticket structure for the games at Bullitt East and Bullitt Central.

    David Marshall, the Director or Secondary Schools in Bullitt County, announced on Monday that ticket prices for the games played at Bullitt East and Bullitt Central will be $6 each for all fans. There will be no pre-sale tickets at either school.

  • Mud grabs the spotlight Friday

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - As the two teams shook hands at the end of The Game on Friday night, Bullitt Central head coach Danny Leasor and his North Bullitt counterpart met off to one side. After shaking hands, the two long-time rivals smiled and then Newton broke out laughing.

    What was said in that short moment?

    “He told me we had a really nice team,” Leasor said back in the dry confines of the coaches’ office. “And that we had a really bad field.”

    Leasor couldn’t argue and he certainly could see the humor in the quote.

  • More experienced Cardinals rain...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - As the visitors were celebrating in the rain, the Bullitt East Chargers were already in the locker room on Friday night.

    The Bourbon Bowl may spend the next year in Nelson County’s trophy case but coach Doug Preston’s Chargers have another prize in mind.

    Putting the 31-6 defeat into the past, Preston and his team were already talking about this Friday night’s playoff opener in Mount Washington against 4-A foe Fairdale.

    In reality, there weren’t a lot the Chargers wanted to remember from a windy, rainy night.

  • Cougars play at home for first...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - One of the top goals posted in the Bullitt Central coaches’ office this season was not only to qualify for the post-season, but to compete in the play-offs at home.

    Mission accomplished.

    With an 8-2 record overall and a number two finish in Class 5-A, District 3, the Cougars will play at home on Friday against Jeffersontown. It is the first home play-off game for Bullitt Central since the 1979 season.

  • Rain can't dampen Cougars...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The Bullitt Central Cougars looked Mother Nature right in the eye on Friday and didn’t blink, putting together a strong effort in adverse conditions to beat arch-rival North Bullitt 34-14 in the 34th renewal of The Game.

    It was not a fit night for man nor beast, but the Cougars sloshed through the rain and mud to win for the second straight time in the series. Bullitt Central now has a 20-14 edge in a rivalry that dates to 1976.

  • Chargers set to face an old...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - The Bullitt East Chargers will face a familiar foe on Friday when they play host to Fairdale in the first round of the Class 4-A, Region 2 play-offs.

    The two programs have played numerous games against each other during the regular season in the past. The series extended up to last season when Fairdale beat the Chargers 40-35 in Mount Washington. The teams did not renew the meetings because of situations just like this where they will meet in the post-season.
