  • 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.

  • Eagles face speedy Western in an...

    HEBRON ESTATES - While the record for the Western Warriors might not be that impressive this season, that is not deceiving North Bullitt head coach Brett Newton as he prepares his team for the first round of the Class 4-A play-offs on Friday.

    As the number four seed, North Bullitt would often be facing teams with 8-2 records or better. Instead, the Eagles will be facing a foe with only a 5-5 mark despite winning District 3 with a 4-0 record.

    Western really loaded up on its non-district schedule.

  • Play-off route set for all teams

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Unlike a year ago when the Class 4-A play-offs were not set until the final minute because of some forfeited games and the bad wind storm that cancelled some games, area football teams are already well aware of where they will open the post-season starting next Friday.

    Class 5-A

    For the first time since 1979, Bullitt Central will host a post-season game next week when the Cougars play host to Jeffersontown, the number three team in District 4.

  • Ky. Dept. of Fish & Wildlife...

    FRANKFORT – I got lucky with my first deer. I took a shot with my .243 rifle and the deer ran straight towards my tree stand, dropping 20 yards away. That early dose of beginner’s luck was just what I needed to build my confidence and bring me back for my next hunt. But as I get ready for my fifth deer season, I’ve learned just how rare that scenario really is.

  • Charger soccer earns first...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - For the first time in the program’s history, the Bullitt East Chargers were ranked last week among the top-25 teams in the state coaches’ poll.

    That goes hand-in-hand with the Chargers posting a 13-3-2 record and facing three teams that have been ranked in the coaches’ poll at some time this season. The Chargers recently beat Waggener 1-0 and they tied perennial district kingpin Bethlehem 1-1 at home back on Sept. 10. There was also a 2-0 loss to Elizabethtown.
