  • Taylor plays second day at state...

     BOWLING GREEN – Bullitt East sophomore Zach Taylor advanced to play on Day Two of the Boys’ Kentucky State Golf Tournament on Saturday, finishing up with one of the best finishes ever for a local player.

    Taylor played through the rain on Friday, finishing before play was suspended later in the afternoon with some players barely halfway through the round. After play resumed on Saturday morning, Taylor’s 78 was good enough to get him into the second round as one of the top-20 scores for players not on one of the top dozen teams.

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Finishing play before the storms hit on Monday night, the North Bullitt girls and the Bullitt Central boys both started post-season play in soccer with wins.

    The result was not so good for the Bullitt East boys’ soccer team as their season came to an end with a 5-0 loss to Fern Creek at home.

    The top two teams in each of this week’s district tournaments will advance to Sixth Region play starting on Monday.

     HEBRON ESTATES – Light? Who needs light for a high school soccer match?

         North Bullitt and Bullitt Central didn’t appear to need any sunlight to play soccer on Thursday. In a classic high school soccer match that went to overtime and beyond, the Eagles pulled out a 4-3 victory in the only meeting between the two rivals during the regular season.

         A year ago, the two teams played a 4-3 thriller at Bullitt Central, but that game ended with a late goal in regulation.

  • Numbers game continues to haunt...

     SHELBYVILLE – For the second week in a row, the North Bullitt Eagles jumped out of the gate with strong play, but the team’s lack of numbers and depth came to the forefront once again on Friday as they faltered late in a 34-20 loss to district rival Shelby County.

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – What could have been ‘the mistake’, turned out to be ‘the redemption’ for Bullitt Central senior running back Trevor Carnell on Friday in the 26th renewal of The War.

         It was a reversal of fortunes in a classic contest that was filled with emotional twists and turns. The final ‘high’ belonged to the Cougars when Bullitt East’s extra point attempt in overtime sailed wide left, giving Bullitt Central a 21-20 victory.

     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.

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The second rotation of intra-county volleyball match-ups has turned out to be much like the first as both North Bullitt and Bullitt East got the best of Bullitt Central over the past week.

    That sets up a meeting next Thursday, on the final night of the regular season, with North Bullitt playing host to Bullitt East.

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The post-season soccer tournaments will start next week at various sites with many of the local teams having a chance to advance to the Sixth Region Tournament which will be played the following week.

    One unusual twist came about last week in the lead-up to the Girls’ 24th District Tournament at Whitefield Academy.

  • Clash of the decade set for...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – It will be a rare intra-county clash of top-10 teams in Class 5-A on Friday when Bullitt East visits Bullitt Central in the annual renewal of The War.

    At least two state-wide polls have both teams listed in the top-10 of the class heading into the game. The Associated Press has Bullitt East third and Bullitt Central eighth while Bluegrasspreps.com has Bullitt East third and Bullitt Central tenth.

    Of course, polls mean nothing in this game. This is an intra-county rivalry first and foremost.
