     BUCKNER -- It was just a little bit different on Thursday for the Bullitt East Chargers.

    Its game against Oldham County was a night earlier.

    And, due to senior activities on the field, warmups had to be moved to a practice field.

    But, despite all the hurdles, coach Mark Sander’s Chargers fared quite well in its season finale.

    Bullitt East had over 500 yards of total offense en route to its 28-7 victory.
