  • Second half surge powers Eagles...

    VALLEY STATION – Down 6-0 at halftime, North Bullitt head coach Brett Newton had no fiery speech for his Eagles.

    Instead, it was a gut check time.

    It was a time for the seniors to either dig deep or go home. It was playoff time.

    On this cold, bitter night, it was a time when those seniors manning the offensive and defensive line, stood up and made a stand.

    At the end of the evening, the Eagles would advance to a Class 4A semifinal showdown on Friday against the Bullitt East Chargers.

  • Rematch with Marion a tough call...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – One of the most common sayings of high school football coaches is that ‘it is hard to beat a good team twice in the same season.

    Of course, not a lot of coaches get the opportunity to make that happen.

    On Friday night at home, Bullitt East head coach Doug Preston will get that chance when his Chargers play host to district rival Marion County in the second round of the Class 4-A play-offs. Bullitt East beat the Knights 13-10 back on Sept. 26 on the same field.

  • Central ready for one of state...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- The Bullitt Central Cougars will go on the road for the first round of the Class 6-A play-offs on Friday, but that doesn’t mean that the Cougars are in over their heads - which unfortunately was the situation a year ago.

    Now, the Cougars will be involved in one of the most balanced first-round games in the state on Friday when they head to Richmond to take on Madison Central. The two teams have combined to win 16 games this season as both teams boast 8-2 records. In fact, only one other first-round game involves two teams with such lofty records.

  • Chargers to face a Rebel team...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON -- The Bullitt East Chargers have played a lot of top-flight opponents this fall.

    Unfortunately, or fortunately depending on your point of view, Bullitt East’s first round opponent in the Class 4-A play-offs doesn’t fall into the category of a top-flight team. In fact, the Atherton Rebels have struggled mightily again this season, finishing with only a 1-8 record on the field.

  • Kicking game propels Pleasant...

  • Red Rage - Chargers make bold...

    BARDSTOWN - Four minutes of flawless football at the start of the game were more than enough for the Bullitt East Chargers as they beat the Nelson County Cardinals 51-14 to close out the 2008 regular season.

    With 8:10 showing on the clock in the first quarter, Bullitt East had a 20-0 lead. Nelson County did not have a first down and had run just four plays from scrimmage.

  • Volley for a Cure

  • Patriots complete three-peat in...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE — It was a wild one in the Pee Wee championship game on Saturday.

    However, in the end, it was the Maryville Patriots who completed its three-peat.

    In fact, the 52-33 shootout win over the Mount Washington Colts capped off three consecutive undefeated seasons for the Patriots.

    On Saturday, it was literally a case of however had the ball last would probably be in a position to win.

    Nate Johnson, who had over 2,000 yards rushing on the season, finished in style with seven touchdowns and two extra point runs.

  • Pleasant Grove caps a banner...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE — With eight shutouts in their first 10 games, Pleasant Grove Dolphin head coach Rick Dattilo felt pretty good about his team’s chances in the championship game of the Little Bullitts on Saturday.

    And when Michael Page scored from 30 yards out on the very first play from scrimmage, the coach felt even better.

    His Dolphins would complete an undefeated season with a 12-0 victory over the Old Mill Bengals.

    With 16 returning players, Dattilo was expecting a good season. He wasn’t disappointed.

  • Eagles find momentum in a romp...

    CRESTWOOD - Take a few of the turnovers and a couple of missed tackles, North Bullitt head coach Brett Newton will take Friday night’s victory over the South Oldham Dragons with a grain of satisfaction.

    But he also knows that his Eagles must play much better as it enters the post-season on Friday night against the Western Warriors.

    The Eagle starters struck quick and then got to sit back and watch some of the reserves get a lot of playing time in the 31-13 victory. With the loss, South Oldham finished a winless season.
