  • BC's defense carries the...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - There are no judges and no style points in high school football...which on Friday night was good news for the Bullitt Central Cougars.

    The Cougars picked up an important ‘W’ as they opened the season against visiting Barren County with a 21-7 decision, but there were no bonus points for style. Bullitt Central did enough right to win easily and made enough mistakes to keep the gave closer than it should have been.

  • Strong NB defense comes up just...

    HEBRON ESTATES - The message was simple following Friday night’s season opener for the North Bullitt Eagles.

    Continue to improve each game and, by year’s end, the Eagles will have a pretty good football team.

    Playing against an athletic Doss Dragon team, North Bullitt fell 13-0.

    While the young Eagle offense struggled with a new offensive scheme, the defense was solid, allowing just a single touchdown.

  • BC's long road swing starts...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The schedule says that the Bullitt Central Cougars will play their next four games on the road. That can sometimes be a daunting task for a high school football team.

    This is not your ordinary road swing. The Cougars do have to board a bus on the following Fridays, but none of the trips is further away than Waggener.

    The first of the four trips won’t last more than 15 minutes as the Cougars head up I-65 to take on former Class 6-A district-rival Southern this Friday.

  • BE is looking for a better...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - A year ago, the Bullitt East Chargers traveled to Manual Stadium and got the best of the DeSales Colts in every category but one - on the scoreboard.

    Despite holding the Class AA squad to 105 yards of total offense a year ago, Bullitt East came out on the short end of a 14-0. Both of the Colts’ touchdowns came on turnovers in the second quarter. The Chargers turned the ball over six times in the loss.

    That DeSales squad went on to post a 10-3 record, falling in the regional final to Newport Central Catholic by a 54-19 score.

  • Chargers score on first play...

    LOUISVILLE - For the second straight week, the Bullitt East Chargers dominated the first half of a football game and then coasted to an easy victory.

    On Friday, the second victim was Class A powerhouse Holy Cross. Bullitt East scored on the first play of the game, a 55-yard run by Jonathan Bernard, and then rolled to a 34-7 halftime edge. There were not a lot of question marks in the second half before the Chargers recorded a 41-14 victory.

  • East ends long week with a...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON -- Every football player, coach and administrator has a long week at some point each fall.

    It can happen after a loss to an arch-rival or losing your starting job to another player or failing to make an interception that could have altered the outcome of your team’s game.

    That is part of football. It makes everyone stronger in the long run. That is why the game is so important for young people. Not everything goes right, no matter how hard you might try.

    But every so often those involved with football go through that really long week.

  • Dragons next for Eagles

    HEBRON ESTATES - The people in charge of the North Bullitt concession stand might want to put a few extra burgers on the grill Friday night as it might be a very long evening for fans.

    Two of the most pass-happy teams in the Jefferson County area will collide at North Bullitt on Friday as South Oldham invades. Both teams threw the ball over 60 percent of the time in losses last week.

    After both teams were shut-out last week, the coaches might try just about anything.

    UPDATE: Friday, Aug. 28

    Bullitt County Public Schools attorney Eric Farris said the status of Bullitt East High School junior varsity football player Jesse Bratcher was improving.

    On Friday Farris said Bratcher's mother reported the improvement. She said a pressure monitor and breathing tube were being removed.

    Farris said a Web site was established where progress reports may be viewed. You may visit the site here.
