  • Nelson end's North's...

    BARDSTOWN -- For the third straight season, the soccer season for the North Bullitt Lady Eagles came to an end in the semi-finals of the Ninth District Tournament.

    On Monday, it was a 3-0 setback to Nelson County that ended the season for the green and gold.

    Unfortunately, since the three Bullitt County teams were shifted into the Ninth District six years ago, a local team has not reached the championship game.

  • BC seeks first district win

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - After three straight ‘big’ games on the road, two of them victories, the Bullitt Central Cougars return home for the final time this season on Friday as they play host to district rival Southern.

    For all the things the Cougars have attained the past two seasons under head coach Danny Leasor, this will the last opportunity for one goal - winning a district game. While the Cougars are 9-10 overall in Leasor’s second stint as the head coach, Bullitt Central is 0-5 against their district rivals.

  • Clash of Inches - East survives...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - In a rivalry as intense as The Clash, sometimes inches seem like miles.

    That case was no more evident than on Friday as the battle royale between Bullitt East and North Bullitt literally came down to less than 12 inches. That was as far as North Bullitt was from the goal line on the third play of the fourth quarter.

  • North-Marion winner gets first...

    HEBRON ESTATES - To play at home in the post-season, the North Bullitt Eagles have to win at home on Friday against district rival Marion County.

    It’s that simple. The two teams are both 1-1 in district play this season. The winner will finish as the number two seed in the district behind Bullitt East and will play at home in the first round of the Class 4-A play-offs. The loser will be the number three seed in the district and will have to go on the road on Nov. 15.

  • Soccer, volleyball district...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Post-season play for fall sports teams will be in full swing this week as both boys’ and girls’ soccer as well as volleyball will conduct district play this week.

    In fact, girls’ soccer started 9th District play yesterday at Bardstown High School. The boys’ 9th District tournament starts on Monday at Nelson County Volleyball, which has just four teams in the 27th District, will play on Tuesday and Thursday this week.

  • THE GAME: County's oldest...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - There have been times in the recent past, when The Game between North Bullitt and Bullitt Central did not live up to its name.

    At times, one team was a lot better than the other, i.e. North Bullitt winning 56-0 two years ago. Other times, neither team was very good.

  • Fern Creek offense too much for...

     LOUISVILLE - Bullitt Central football coach Dan Leasor does not like to lose. But even a thorough 53-26 defeat from the Fern Creek Tigers on Friday could not discourage the veteran coach.

    "They thoroughly beat us tonight,” Leasor said of the 6-A district battle. “But our kids played hard for 48 minutes.”

    Leading a resurgent program, Leasor’s main focus following the road loss was to be encouraged.

  • NB girls stay hot, BE looks...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - The rematch turned out to be a lot closer than the first meeting in local girls’ soccer last Thursday as North Bullitt and Bullitt East met for the second time.

    In early September it had been all North Bullitt as the Lady Eagles grabbed an 8-2 victory.
