  • North has chance to go where...

     HEBRON ESTATES – By reaching the third round of the Class 5-A play-offs, the North Bullitt Eagles have the chance to go where the program has been only a few times in the past.

    This will be the first time that North Bullitt has played for a regional championship since the 2008 season. In fact, since 2008, the Eagles have won just three post-season games -- winning single games in 2010, 2011 and then last season when the green and gold beat Doss.

  • High flying Falcons race past...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- The North Falcons went to the air early and often en route to a 36-20 victory in the A Division of the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League on Sunday.

    By the end of the first eight-minute quarter, the Falcons held a commanding 22-0 lead over the Central Wildcats.

    Head coach Tracey Key’s team scored on just the second play of the game.

    On the first play, quarterback Andrew Hadley connected on a 75-yard bomb to Ricky Hill.

  • Big second half leads Old Mill...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- For the first 15 minutes of Sunday’s B Division title game, the defenses ruled.

    And then within 20 seconds, two touchdowns were put on the board.

    But, at the end of the chilly day, it would be the Old Mill Bengals who took home the championship trophy with a 22-6 victory over Lebanon Junction.

    The teams had split in the regular season but it was the Bengals who would control the action in the rubber match.

  • Colts win exciting Little...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- It was a remarkable way to start out Championship Sunday for the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League.

    The smallest of the combatants provided the most excitement of the day.

    In the end, a fumble in overtime provided the Mount Washington Colts with an exciting 12-6 victory over the Pleasant Grove Dolphins in the Little Bullitts division.

    The game was a defensive struggle as neither team could get close to the opposing goal line.

    The Dolphins got on the scoreboard first with 6:10 left in the game.

  • Dolphins break halftime tie to...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- With the game tied at halftime, the Pleasant Grove Dolphins would put two scores on the board to claim the Pee Wee championship.

    The Dolphins turned back the Old Mill Bengals 19-6.

    During the first half on the 70-yard field, the defense was king for both teams.

    With 3:18 in the second quarter, Old Mill’s Kaleb Serafin broke loose for a 53-yard touchdown run.

    But, on its next possession, Pleasant Grove tied the score at 6-6.

    The big run was a 13-yard play by Michael Wheatley on fourth and four.

  • NB gets second chance against...

     HEBRON ESTATES – It’s not often in high school football that you get a chance at redemption against a rival in the same season.

    The North Bullitt Eagles will get that rare opportunity on Friday when the green and gold make the short trip around Louisville to take on fellow Class 5-A, District 3 rival South Oldham in the championship game of Region 3.

  • North’s Benz signs with Kentucky...

     HEBRON ESTATES – The recruiting game is never easy and seldom a sure thing, but for North Bullitt baseball player Blake Benz, the second time round might have been the perfect outcome.

    Back during the summer, Benz had an offer on the table from Evansville University, but as sometimes happens, priorities change and coaches head in different directions. This time, Benz was the odd man out.

  • Dragons breathe fire on Cougars...

      CRESTWOOD – For the first 16 minutes of Friday’s Class 5-A, Regional 3 semi-final, the Bullitt Central Cougars had a perfect game plan and perfectly executed it against South Oldham.

    Unfortunately, at some point the high-powered Dragons had to get the ball. Once they did, the home team found the end zone at will, scoring 20 points in the final 4:12 of the first half before rolling to a 37-0 win.

  • Brown shows what he can do for NB

     BEREA — When the North Bullitt Eagles fell behind 14-0 in the first five minutes of play Friday  night, there was no panic along the sidelines.

    After all, North Bullitt head coach Adam Billings has always said that games are won over the course of four quarters.

    On Friday, in the second round of the Class 5A post-season tournament, the visiting Eagles would overcome that deficit and roar back with a 54-41 victory over the host Madison Southern Eagles.

  • NB, BC enter round two of post-...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – For the first time since 2008, two Bullitt County football teams won opening round games last Friday.

    Now, North Bullitt will go on the road this Friday to take on Madison Southern while Bullitt Central has a rematch with South Oldham on the road in PeeWee Valley.

    Both games on Friday are set for 7:30 p.m.
