  • Cougars can't overcome...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The defensive effort was inspiring, but that wasn’t enough on Friday as the Bullitt Central Cougars dropped a 14-0 decision to John Hardin in a battle for the top spot in Class 5-A, District 3.

    John Hardin came into the game averaging over 400 yards of total offense through the first eight games of the season. On Friday, the Bulldogs managed just 203 yards and more than half of that came on three plays in the first half.

  • BE seeking to build on recent...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - The Bullitt East Chargers will close out the regular season on Friday when the red and gold play host to neighborhood rival Nelson County in the annual battle for the Bourbon Barrel.

    Bullitt East head coach Doug Preston is looking for a good contest, if he can field enough players.

  • Slow start dooms the Eagles in...

    HEBRON ESTATES - With very little to play for on Friday, the North Bullitt Eagles got off to a slow start and never recovered as they fell 33-7 to district rival Marion County.

    The district seeding was already set for both teams before the game began. The Knights had already wrapped up the number one spot with wins over Bullitt East and LaRue County the two previous weeks. North Bullitt had lost to those two teams so was already locked into the number four slot.

  • BE home for first playoff contest

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - A few weeks ago, Bullitt East coach Doug Preston told his players they were on the verge of being a very good football team.

    That came after a tough road loss to Marion County, the team’s only district loss in Preston’s two years at the helm.

    Last week against North Bullitt, Preston told the players they were getting even closer.

    On Friday night, homecoming night was the game when he felt the team began to surge in a tough 10-0 victory over LaRue County.

  • THE GAME: 34th meeting in...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The Game, the oldest football rivalry in Bullitt County will be renewed for the 34th consecutive year on Friday when the North Bullitt Eagles invade George Valentine Field to take on the Bullitt Central Cougars.

    The two teams have been on pretty much opposite courses this season as the Cougars are 7-2 and have already secured a post-season play-off berth at home for the first time in 30 years.

  • North’s Goeings just...

    LOUISVILLE - Over the past several weeks, North Bullitt boys’ golf coach John Hunt has been telling anyone who would listen that his top two players - Brandon Goeings and Matt Bloom - were the verge of knocking down some low scores.

  • East-North battle each other...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - Two Bullitt East-North Bullitt soccer rivalries will be contested at the same time on Sunday in the opening round of the Ninth District Tournaments.

    At Bullitt East, the boys’ tournament will be played with the Chargers and Eagles squaring-off on Sunday at 3:30 p.m. That first-round game in the seven-team event will be contested on the soccer field. The semi-finals and finals later in the week will be played on the football field.

  • 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.

  • North faces a ‘pride...

    HEBRON ESTATES - The North Bullitt Eagles will try to stop one of the hottest teams in the area on Friday when they travel into central Kentucky to battle district rival Marion County.

    The Knights have won six straight games including a 33-7 victory over LaRue County last week.

    This game will have no affect on the post-season bracketing for either team. Marion County has already wrapped up the number one seed for Class 4-A, District 4 with a 2-0 mark while at 0-2 North Bullitt will go on the road in November as the number four seeds.
