  • East needs to refocus Friday

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - The Bullitt East Chargers were flying high over the weekend after beating arch-rival Bullitt Central on Friday, but the red and gold need to get their feet firmly back on the ground quickly as they move into district play this week when they play host to Shelby County.

        Bullitt East played Shelby County a year ago, losing 63-15 in what was the low-water mark of the 2009 campaign.

  • North ready to battle Wildcats

        HEBRON ESTATES - The North Bullitt Eagles will get a chance to use some of their newly acquired confidence on Friday when they play host to Waggener in the final non-district regular season game until the final game of the season.

        North Bullitt snapped a nine-game losing streak last week with a 21-7 victory over Woodford County and they will be looking for more this week.

        A year ago, the Eagles turned back Waggener 23-9.

  • Central looks to bounce back big

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - Bullitt Central head coach Danny Leasor looked directly at his football team early this week and told them that Atherton is a better team than the one his team decimated 64-6 a year ago.

        The coach then made eye contact and said that there was no chance of his team losing to the Rebels this Friday when Atherton visits for a non-district contest.

  • Bluegrass Speedway racing...

    BARDSTOWN - Bluegrass Speedway track promoters David and Anita Ferrell will take the next couple of weeks off, with no racing at the mile, high-banked Nelson County clay oval on September 4 or September 11, but racing will return on Saturday September 18.

    Bluegrass Speedway will be closed for the Labor Day Weekend holiday on Saturday September 4 and will be closed for the World 100 on Saturday September 11.

  • Salem Speedway championship down...

        SALEM, IN - With an entry list spiced with wily veterans, young chargers and three former Salem winners, the Kentuckiana Ford Dealers ARCA Fall Classic, set for Saturday night, is shaping up as a wide open affair with a number of car-driver combinations capable of visiting victory lane.


  • Colts' defense stymies...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - Crossing midfield just once and never penetrating deeper than the DeSales’ 37-yard line, the Bullitt East Chargers came up short for a second straight week as they were derailed by the Colts 21-0.

    The loss came just a week after the Chargers were crushed by Holy Cross 63-12. In that game, the red and gold suffered a number of injuries to key players that made it difficult to put forth a sustained effort in this contest.

  • BC makes big statement by...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The Bullitt Central Cougars warmed up for The War with an impressive battle on Friday, rolling past visiting Southern 40-13 for a second straight win to open the 2010 season.

    Bullitt Central scored three times in the second quarter and then pushed the lead to 27-0 midway through the third quarter and were in position to score again when they encountered a few bumps in the road. Still, by the end of the third frame the maroon and gray had the 40-13 advantage and cruised to the win.

  • Strength up front ready to power...

    HEBRON ESTATES - A year of experience could go a long way for the North Bullitt Eagles in 2010.

    Now, the green and gold have familiarity with each other, their competition and the new offense implemented last season. That, along with two positive pre-season scrimmages have the Eagles and veteran head coach Brett Newton thinking big for this season.

  • THE WAR: Central, East set to...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - The biggest annual one-night event in Bullitt County will return for the 21st time on Friday when The War is fought once again between Bullitt Central and Bullitt East on the gridiron.

        During a stretch in which Bullitt East won 10 straight games, the series lost a little luster. A pair of narrow Bullitt Central victories the past two seasons has put renewed energy back into the showdown.

  • BC fans will need a program to...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The biggest money-maker for the Bullitt Central football in 2010 might be from program sales.

    Cougar football fans will have trouble telling the players this fall without a roster. Gone are the core group of players who were the key to the turnaround of the program over the last three seasons after head coach Danny Leasor returned for his second stint at the helm.

    Bullitt Central has gone 19-14 over the past three seasons, the best record over that time span in over 35 years. The Cougars have gone 8-3 each of the past two seasons.
