  • North gets much needed boost...

     BARDSTOWN — When it’s been over a month since your last victory, sometimes you have to learn how to celebrate.

    For the North Bullitt Eagles, it was a happy locker room on Friday after a 53-7 district win over host Nelson County.

    For head coach Adam Billings and his players, it was a great bus ride home.

    “We came out and did what we needed to do,” said Billings, whose team is now 1-2 in district play with two games to go. “I was excited for the kids.”

  • BE can’t stay with state power...

     CRESTWOOD — Coaches will also say that when a player goes down to an injury, it’s next man up.

    But, in reality, when you have a small roster, injuries can play a big role.

    And, on the football field where a player is playing on both sides of the ball, an injury means that two players have to step up.

    On Friday, a beat up Bullitt East Charger team traveled to play one of the top 5-A teams in the state — South Oldham.

    Injuries or not, Bullitt East head coach Mark Sander knew it would be a battle.

  • Cougars barely hang on to beat...

     BUCKNER – Too much celebrating by Oldham County allowed Bullitt Central to celebrate a key district win on Friday as the Cougars held on down the stretch to secure a 21-19 victory on the road.

    The Cougars had scored on three of their first four possessions of the game and led 21-6 at halftime. That all changed in the second half when Bullitt Central’s offense sputtered as Oldham County was heating up.

  • It will be road warrior week for...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The last two undefeated teams in Class 5-A, District 3 will clash on Friday when Bullitt East goes on the road to battle two-time defending district champion South Oldham.

    In fact, all three Bullitt County football programs will be on the road this week in district play. In addition to Bullitt East, Bullitt Central will be playing close by as they will be in Buckner playing Oldham County. North Bullitt will make the short trip south to take on Nelson County.

  • Beautiful weekend results in...

      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.

  • NB rallies past BC in net play

     HEBRON ESTATES – Consider it more a preview than a showdown.

    Yes, North Bullitt and Bullitt Central clashed for the second time this regular season on Monday in the Lady Eagles’ nest and the green and gold came away with a 25-21, 22-25, 25-17, 25-23 victory, but of the three meetings that the two teams will in all probability have this fall, this was the least important.

  • Oh so close! East falls to Mercy...

     LOUISVILLE – Heartbreak and the Bullitt East Lady Chargers seem to go hand-in-hand when it comes to girls’ soccer.

    That was the case again last week as for the 16th straight time the Mercy Jaguars got the best of the Lady Chargers in a classic regular season match that needed extra time to find a winner.

  • BE/Eastside’s Macie Brown has a...

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Just four days after becoming the youngest player from Bullitt County to ever qualify for a KHSAA State Golf Championship, Bullitt East and Eastside seventh-grader Macie Brown added to her honors on Saturday, winning the Girls’ Kentucky Middle School State Golf Championship.

  • Quick start, slow finish means...

     BUCKNER — North Bullitt head football coach Adam Billings has never been one to worry about the scoreboard.

    He’s more worried about coaching his players and seeing them improve.

    Some years would have the bigger numbers at the end of the game; some years it is the other way around.

    This season, coming off a senior-laden team with a promising junior class, has been rough.

    But, Billings remains positive that the Eagles are just a few small plays away.

  • THE WAR: East maintains...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – The game might have been short on execution, but Friday’s 29th annual renewal of The War more than made up for it in determination and grit.

    In the end, it was Bullitt East that made the final big play, stuffing Bullitt Central running back Zak Clark at the 15-yard line on fourth down, a yard short of the first down, with 1:16 remaining in the game, preserving the Chargers’ 19-13 advantage.
