  • Volleyball post-season starts...

     OKOLONA – After completing regular season play this week, the area volleyball programs will enter post-season play on Monday in both the 23rd and 24th Districts.

    In each of the past several seasons, all three Bullitt County teams have advanced out of district play to the Sixth Region Tournament. Both the district winner and runner-up advance to the Sixth Region Tournament the week of Oct. 24.

  • District soccer play this week

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – In an unprecedented move, the Bullitt Central girls’ soccer program opted not to compete in this week’s 23rd District Tournament at Southern High School.
        Coach Stephanie Porter’s team had completed a full slate of games during the season and had beaten Moore 2-0 and then lost to Bardstown 10-0 on Wednesday of last week.

  • Fast start is more than North...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – Get in!
        Get the job done!
        Go home!
        It was a workmanlike night for the North Bullitt Eagles on Friday as they cruised past a struggling Nelson County team 41-20 on Senior Night for the green and gold.

  • Dragons pull away in second half...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - The South Oldham Dragons came into Mike Egan Field on Friday night ranked second in the state in Class 5A.
        They left with their undefeated record intact after defeating Bullitt East 52-27.
        Even though Bullitt East gave up two touchdowns off turnovers, the Chargers were only down 28-21 at intermission.
        The home team got off to a quick start, scoring on its opening drive.

  • Mason’s 35 yard kick at :00...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – It was a homecoming to remember on Friday as the Bullitt Central Cougars scored twice in the final 3:07 to defeat district-rival Oldham County 10-7.
        In the end, it was a 35 yard field goal from Cougar senior soccer standout Austin Mason as time expired that accounted for the final score and sent the Bullitt Central faithful home in a state of euphoria.

  • It’s home, home and a homecoming...

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – For the three Bullitt County football teams it will be home, home and a homecoming on Friday as area fans get a week off from intra-county battles before it heats up again next week when North Bullitt travels to Bullitt East.

  • Youth teams gearing up for the...

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – Once again this season The Pioneer News will run the results from the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League in each Wednesday edition during the season.

    The statistics used each week are provided to the newspaper by the league and the individual teams. Questions about yardage, scoring and tackles should be directed to the league and those teams.

  • There’s no ‘good’ draw for Lady...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – There is no revelation here, but as we head into the post-season for soccer starting on Monday, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles are between a rock and hard place when it comes to the upcoming district and regional brackets.

    First off, North Bullitt could not be a bigger favorite to win the 24th District Tournament set for next Tuesday and Thursday at Bullitt Central. The Lady Eagles have beaten Bullitt Central, Moore and Southern by 10-0 scores in games that ended very early.

  • Eagles move to 6-1 with win

        HEBRON ESTATES -- The defense was physical.
        The offense was efficient.
        And the North Bullitt Eagles played hard for 48 minutes.
        That resulted in a workmanlike 35-12 victory over Oldham County on Friday night.
        But the score really wasn’t that close as the visiting Colonels scored a pair of late touchdowns to close the final margin.

  • Cougars make the final stand to...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – On his coaches’ board on Friday, Bullitt Central head coach Matt Kuehn in big letters wrote ‘FINISH’.
        Actually, the coach was referring more to his offense, but it was his defense that went wire-to-wire on Friday including an interception at the 11-yard line with 1:56 remaining in the game by sophomore Daylin Huff that capped a 9-7 victory for the Cougars in the 28th annual renewal of ‘The War’ against Bullitt East.
