  • Cougars rally to defeat unbeaten...

    GOSHEN - This season, you almost get the impression that the Bullitt Central Cougars like to fall behind early in games.

    The maroon and gray did it again on Friday, and again the Cougars rallied to pick up another spectacular victory as they beat previously undefeated North Oldham 21-17.

  • Failed conversion foils East...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - The Bullitt East Chargers have won games this season in which it took a late miracle for the winning points.

    The red and gold have also won games when the opponent fumbled inside the 1-yard line when driving for the go-ahead touchdown.

    On Friday, it was the reverse as Bullitt East did everything in their power to upset Manual, the state’s 20th-ranked team, only to come up short on a two-point conversion attempt at the end of the second overtime.

  • Bourbon Barrel on the line as BE...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - The Bullitt East Chargers will try to shake off the effects of a tough loss and also build momentum for the post-season on Friday as they close out the regular season with a trip to Bardstown to take on Nelson County.

        This has become a friendly rivalry in recent years. This will be the sixth meeting in the series between the two schools with Nelson County holding a 3-2 advantage. Bullitt East did win 41-28 last season in Mount Washington.

  • Doss just has too many athletes...

    HEBRON ESTATES - Looking at the final statistics, the North Bullitt Eagles had enough yards and played well enough on the defensive side to win Friday night’s encounter against the Doss Dragons.

    However, three big plays haunted the host Eagles on this Halloween encounter with their former district foes.

    As a result, the Eagle fans went home 20-7 losers.

    “Doss is a talented team,” said head coach Brett Newton. “They’re probably the quickest team we’ve seen. It’s hard to face such a quick line.”

  • Regional cross-country Saturday

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – The area cross-country teams will move into the post-season on Saturday with the regional meets held at two different locations in Jefferson County.

    Bullitt East and North Bullitt, in Class 2-A, will be competing at McNeely Lake Park in southern Jefferson County. That course is basically the home course for both teams as they often practice there and have run in a handful of meets there this season including the DeSales Invitational less than two weeks ago.

  • DeSales Invitational provides...

    LOUISVILLE - The final key tune-up before regional cross-country meets are contested on Nov. 8 was the DeSales Invitational on Saturday at McNeely Lake Park involved all three of the Bullitt County programs.

    For both Bullitt East and North Bullitt, it was another chance to get on the course that will be the site of the Class AA regional next Saturday. For both programs, the course is basically their home away from home as none of the local teams has a home course.

  • Time for Eagles to build play-...

    HEBRON ESTATES - The name of the game will be momentum on Friday when the North Bullitt Eagles travel to Crestwood to close out the regular season with a game against the South Oldham Dragons.

    This is the last game before the Eagles play host to some play-off team next Friday in the first round of the Class 4-A play-offs. So, with losses in four of their last five games, the Eagles will be looking to regain some lost swagger.

  • For three quarters, Cougars are...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - If there had been one very minor, questionable aspect to Bullitt Central’s remarkable dream football season, it had been that the Cougars had been slow starters this year.

    In all of the team’s big wins, Bullitt East, Anderson County and North Bullitt, the maroon and gray had fallen behind and then rallied to get the win. That makes it exciting for fans, but wears on coaches at a point.

  • Doss imperfect trade for NB

    HEBRON ESTATES - The windstorm in Louisville a month ago played havoc with the high school football schedule and North Bullitt will find out just how much it hurt them on Friday when they square off with a powerful Doss team.

    This game is a replacement for the contest that North Bullitt lost with Waggener. Doss was a late replacement for this week which should have been the Eagles’ ‘open’ date.

    It has not turned out to be an ever swap. Back on Oct. 10, Doss killed Waggener 61-0. The Wildcats have not won a game this season while Doss is 6-2.
