  • Good numbers have BC girls...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - An influx of players has Bullitt Central Lady Cougar soccer coach Neal Cox thinking big heading into the 2009 season.

    The maroon and gray have struggled in the past to have enough players to field a competitive team and also build for the future. This season, there are 30 players in the program and 22 dressing for varsity games.

    In addition, many of the players spent time together in the off-season playing indoor soccer at Mockingbird Valley. That has not only increased their soccer skills, but also their knowledge of playing together.

  • NB is in no position to overlook...

    HEBRON ESTATES - While the North Bullitt Eagles have done some good things - and some not so good things - through the first three weeks of the season, veteran head coach Brett Newton has one simple point to make before the team takes on winless Waggener this Friday in Jefferson County.

    “We’re not in position to take anyone lightly,” the coach said on Monday.

    North Bullitt has some tougher games on the horizon so this is a good chance to gain some much-needed confidence while getting the record back to the .500 mark at 2-2.

  • Bluegrass Speedway Back in...

    BARDSTOWN - After being closed for the past two weekends, Bluegrass Speedway track promoters David and Anita Ferrell will be return with another “Saturday Night Showtime” edition of racing competition this Saturday evening September 19, with the Street Stocks being highlighted in a $300 to win event.

     

  • Couch comes off bench to turn...

    VERSAILLES - Woodford County coach Chris Tracy had a secret weapon by the name of Couch on Friday night when the North Bullitt Eagles traveled to the heart of the Bluegrass.

    No, he wasn’t any relation to famed UK quarterback Tim Couch but he might as well have been.

    Sophomore Matt Couch came off the Yellow Jacket bench to throw a pair of touchdown passes in the 28-19 victory over the visiting Eagles.

    The loss dropped North Bullitt to 1-2 on the season, while the 5-A Woodford County went to 3-1.

  • Chargers score on first play,...

    LOUISVILLE - For one play Friday night the Bullitt East Chargers were in control.

    Unfortunately, the rest of the game belonged to the DeSales Colts as the Class 2-A power won the battles up front and rolled to a 45-30 victory. It was the second time in as many years that the Colts got the best of the Chargers at Manual Stadium.

    DeSales finished with 415 yards of total offense and 286 of those yards came on the ground including 161 yards by senior Andrew Beeler.

  • Youth football teams seek a...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - It might seem like the earliest start in the league's history, but as President Joe Downs of the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League pointed out, it is the same weekend that the league started a year ago, just a day earlier.

    That means that the largest independent sports league in Bullitt County will begin play for the 2009 season with a full slate of games this weekend.

  • Eagles will be looking in a...

    HEBRON ESTATES - The North Bullitt Eagles may feel like they are looking in a mirror on Friday when they line-up to battle Woodford County.

  • BC's defense steps up and...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - A pair of goal-line stands midway through the second half saved the Bullitt Central Cougars on Friday as they managed to hang on to beat former district rival Southern 21-14.

    All of the points in the game were scored in the first half.

    The victory was the second in a row for the Cougars heading into this Friday’s showdown with county rival Bullitt East in Mount Washington. Still, it was the second week in a row where the defense had to pull the decision out of the fire as the offense struggled with consistency.

  • Newton treating first six games...

    HEBRON ESTATES - After one of the most successful runs in the program’s history, the North Bullitt Eagles are going to have to step back and rebuild under veteran head coach Brett Newton.

    The past three seasons have produced winning records and two consecutive trips to the Class 4-A regional finals, but the Eagles have suffered heavy graduation losses each of the past two seasons. It will just take some time to refill the coffers.
