  • BE continues to narrow gap, but...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – There is no doubt that Bullitt East soccer is narrowing the gap on Mercy, but the Lady Chargers still couldn’t get a win on Monday, giving up a pair of second half goals to lose to the Jaguars 2-1 in the first of what could be three meetings between the district and regional rivals.

  • Offenses rule and so does...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Is the glass half full or half empty?

    Is it good offense or bad defense?

    There was plenty of that to mull over in the aftermath of one of the highest producing offensive high school football games in Kentucky history on Friday, a game that Spencer County won 77-42 over Bullitt Central despite the Bears throwing just two passes.

    In the end, the two offensive juggernauts combined for 1,338 yards of total offense. Spencer County set a new state record with 734 yards on the ground.

  • Third quarter sinks BE’s hopes...

     SHELBYVILLE – Inconsistency continues to consistently haunt the Bullitt East Chargers this season.

    After battling undefeated Shelby County to a 7-7 tie at halftime, the Chargers turned the ball over three times in the third quarter, allowing the Rockets to score four times on drives of less than 30 yards. That was more than Bullitt East could overcome as Shelby County recorded a 35-7 win.

    The loss dropped Bullitt East to 0-5 entering district play this week when they take on visiting Nelson County. The Friday night game will also be homecoming.

  • Good Knight for King James,...

     HEBRON ESTATES -- The worst thing that could have happened to the Marion County Knights happened.

    North Bullitt got beat pretty handily by an undefeated Shelby County team the prior Friday night.

    The second worst thing to happen was that Eagle senior Logan James was back to nearly 100 percent after being injured the previous two games.

    Combine those two things, along with the excitement of a big homecoming crowd, North Bullitt sailed to an easy 40-6.

  • Clash of unbeatens as Spencer...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Bullitt Central will have an opportunity to find just where they stand heading into district play this Friday when they play host to undefeated Spencer County in a big matchup of neighbors.

    The two 4-0 teams have been drawing a lot of interest in the area this season for two different philosophies – Spencer County for running the ball and Bullitt Central for putting it in the air.

  • Youth football back in action...

     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.

  • Poppell continues early Fall...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Bullitt East senior Sierra Poppell continued her strong start to the 2015 Cross-Country season with her third big run in as many races on Saturday at the Rumble Trough the Jungle Run at the Creasey Mahan Nature Preserve in Goshen.

    Poppell finished fourth out of 140 runners in the main run, finishing in 19:42.02. The winner was Kaitlyn Lacy of regional rival Male in a time of 18:28.60.

  • Eagles’ big week ends 1-0-1

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The first part of last week was going to be big for the North Bullitt boys’ soccer team and that stretch the team handled well, getting past Bullitt Central 3-1 and then drawing to a 2-2 tie with Bullitt East.

    Unfortunately, after those two emotional games, the team came out flat on Saturday at the Meade County Invitational, dropping a pair of lopsided contests.

    Still, the biggest win came on Tuesday when the green and gold rolled into Shepherdsville and got the win over the Cougars in a spirited and competitive contest.

  • Lady Chargers show net strength...

     HEBRON ESTATES – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers have a strong volleyball team this fall.

    Just ask the North Bullitt Lady Eagles.

    On Tuesday, the red and gold invaded the Eagles’ nest and took no prisoners, beating a North Bullitt squad that had been having a pretty good season by a 25-10, 25-16, 25-15 score.

  • Turf battle wages over use of...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Is there enough property at the Frank E. Simon Park to accommodate two sports organizations involved with the youth of the community?

    That might be a question that must be answered in the near future.

    But, for now, the Bullitt County YMCA and the Shepherdsville Titans football and cheerleading program will do just that -- co-exist.

    In the past, the Shepherdsville football organization has practiced in the city park off Highway 44 West.
