  • Bullitt East falls just short,...

    LEBANON - To have a road game go down to the final play against a team ranked in the top 10 in the state may have been the best Bullitt East coach Doug Preston could have hoped for on Saturday afternoon.

    But as a last-minute Matthew Bowles pass into the end zone fell to the ground, Preston could not help but be disappointed.

    However, the tone was much different just minutes later. His upbeat post-game talk centered on how close the team had come to pulling off a major victory.

  • Big first half powers Bearcats...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Into each life a little rain must fall.

    On Friday it poured on the Bullitt Central Cougars.

    Facing the best team so far on the schedule, the maroon and gray had no answers as Anderson County the last five touchdowns of the game as they ended Bullitt Central’s 6-0 start with a 42-7 victory that left Cougar head coach Danny Leasor scratching his head.

    The coach felt his team was ready for such a big game, but the Bearcats took it to the Cougars, especially up front.

  • Central rolls into district...

    LOUISVILLE - For the second time this season, the Bullitt Central Cougars went into a game knowing they were going to win.

    Much to the satisfaction of head coach Danny Leasor, the team took care of business each time.

    First it was Atherton and this past Friday the maroon and gray smashed Class 5-A district-rival Iroquois 61-0. The win set up the much-anticipated district showdown this week as Bullitt Central will play host to undefeated John Hardin.

  • Maturing Hawks claw past Eagles

    HODGENVILLE - For the past several years, Brett Newton had talked about how well-prepared the LaRue County Hawks were when the teams played.

    North Bullitt had the upper hand in past meetings but those young Hawks have grown up and they got a bit of revenge on Saturday night.

    In a game postponed from Friday due to the rains, LaRue County easily beat North Bullitt 42-6.

    For the Eagles, the only highlight of the game came on the opening series.

    Zack Reynolds took the opening kickoff and returned the ball 40 yards to the Eagle 48.

  • Bullitt East capitalizes on big...

    HEBRON ESTATES - Forget about the records.

    Forget about the weather.

    Forget about if it is a district game or just a pickup contest in a subdivision field.

    It was Bullitt East versus North Bullitt on Friday night in the annual CLASH.

    On this particular night, it would be Charger coach Doug Preston who would leave with the biggest smile as his Bullitt East team held off the scrappy Eagles 21-13.

    Both Preston and North Bullitt counterpart Brett Newton found reasons to smile after the district battle.

  • Showdown! BC hosts undefeated...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - For the first time in 30 years, Bullitt Central’s football team will be in a one-game situation for a district crown.

    None of the players on this team, as well as some of the assistant coaches, were even born in 1979 when the Cougars traveled to Radcliff and beat North Hardin behind the play of quarterback Damon Blanton and head coach Mike Manley. That team earned the only home play-off game in school history.

  • East and LaRue battle for home...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - A home play-off game will be on the line on Friday when the Bullitt East Chargers return home to take on LaRue County in a key Class 4-A showdown.

    The post-season scenario is simple. The winner of this game will finish second (behind Marion County) in the district and will host a game in the first round of the play-offs on Friday, Nov. 6. The loser will finish third in the district and will have to go on the road for all of the play-offs.

    This will also be Homecoming Week at Bullitt East.

  • East secures top seed, then...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- The Bullitt East Lady Chargers had already wrapped up the number seed for the upcoming 27th District Tournament, but coach Michelle Gajdik’s team still made an emphatic point on Tuesday hen they pushed aside Bullitt Central 25-15, 25-10 in the final regular match-up between district foes.

    The two rivals had played a three game marathon back on Aug. 27 in Mount Washington, but this time the Lady Chargers took control early and never looked back as they won for the sixth straight time this season against their district foes.

  • East repeats Two-County title

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The final tune-up before next week’s regional tournament went to Bullitt East as the Chargers put together two strong days of golf to win the Two-County Cup for the second straight season.

    For the first time, the event which features all three Bullitt County teams along with Spencer County, the tournament was over two days with two different formats. The four teams played a best-ball, two-man scramble on Wednesday at Tanglewood Golf Course and then moved to Heritage Hill Golf Course on Thursday for a modified stroke-play event.

  • District outranks rivalry in...

    HEBRON ESTATES - You would have to think that nothing that happens on Friday night in the 30th meeting between North Bullitt and Bullitt East on the football field will surprise anyone.

    Amazingly, this will be the fifth meeting over the past three seasons between the rivals. Only Trinity and St. Xavier have battled each other as many times over the same time span.
