  • Salem Speedway Family Fun Night...

    SALEM, Ind. – The quest for 2009 Salem Speedway track championships continues on Saturday, Sept. 12th, as the Lucas Oil Super Stocks and Dave & Deb’s Winner’s Circle Street Stocks return to the super-fast, half-mile oval for the First Harrison Bank Family Fun Night, presented by The Salem Leader.

     

    Championships are still up for grabs in both Salem divisions, as just 13 points separate the top three drivers in the Super Stock division and a 16 point differential exists between first and third place in the Street Stock standings.

     

  • One game under belt helps Eagles...

    HEBRON ESTATES - One could see the relief on Dalton Hadley’s face Friday evening.

    After a rough night in his first varsity start and a tough week at school following the death of a former North Bullitt football and tract standout, Hadley finally had a reason to relax.

    With the junior signal caller feeling much more relaxed in his second varsity start, North Bullitt evened its mark at 1-1 on the year with a 21-7 victory over South Oldham.

    It didn’t hurt that sometimes bad things seem to follow teams that have lost their last 18 games.

  • The war up front could decide...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - A year after the rivalry was shocked back to life with a stunning 30-27 victory by the Cougars, Bullitt Central and Bullitt East will clash again on Friday in the 20th renewal of The War.

    After ten straight Bullitt East victories, the county battle was starting to take itself hostage. Now, with Bullitt Central’s win a year ago, there is a lot of ‘talk’ and ‘chatter’ about the rivalry again.

    In fact, if the weather holds on Friday, the crowd could be one of the largest to ever watch a sporting event in Bullitt County.

  • 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.
