  • BE’s defense stiffens, but offense sputters

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The defense was stout, but the Bullitt East Chargers couldn’t take advantage of some offensive chances in the second half in losing to the visiting Shelby County Rockets 7-3 on Football Homecoming 2018.

    The loss dropped the Chargers to 1-3 as the team enters Class 5-A district play starting on Friday with a trip to Nelson County.

    Through the first four games, Bullitt East has scored just 16 points.

  • Bad first half sinks BC against North Oldham

     GOSHEN – Two weeks to get over the loss of senior Daylin Huff, who was lost for the season to a broken leg, wasn’t quite long enough for the Bullitt Central Cougars.

    Playing a flat first half, the Cougars dug themselves a 31-6 hole at halftime. There were some signs of better play in the second half, but it was too little, too late as Bullitt Central lost to North Oldham 44-29.

  • Eagles fall, get great tune-up for districts

     HEBRON ESTATES -- North Bullitt quarterback Conner Abnee was selected as the homecoming king on Friday night.

    But the visiting North Hardin Trojans did not treat Abnee or his Eagle teammates like royalty.

    Racing out to an early 20-0 lead, the Trojans finished with a 42-21 victory.

    “We fought until the end,” North Bullitt head coach Adam Billings said of his team. “This is just getting us ready for districts.”

  • It takes four tough games for BE to beat BC

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – In a match that took nearly two hours, everybody got their money’s worth on Thursday as Bullitt East and Bullitt Central collided in their only confrontation of the regular season.

    Both teams are having impressive seasons and have reached the championship match of tournaments as well as posting positive records.

    At Bullitt Central last week, it was Bullitt East that pulled away from a 1-1 score after two games to win 25-18, 25-27, 25-19, 25-17.

  • North Bullitt offense rolls up 509 yards in road victory

        SHELBYVILLE – On a nearly perfect night for football, the North Bullitt Eagles played nearly perfect football on Friday, ending three previous seasons of frustration against the Shelby County Rockets.
        Scoring first for the first time this season, the Eagles never trailed in rolling to a 52-35 victory over the Rockets (2-2).
        The win moved North Bullitt to 3-1 for the season, a vast improvement over last season’s 2-8 campaign which included a 35-26 loss to the Rockets at home.

  • NB looks for momentum

     HEBRON ESTATES – With both Bullitt Central and Bullitt East taking a week off, the North Bullitt Eagles will be the only game in town this week.

    Actually, the Eagles aren’t playing at home either as they will hit the road to take on Shelby County in a battle of former district rivals.

    For the Rockets, this will be the first of back-to-back games against Bullitt County teams. Next week, Shelby County will be playing at Bullitt East.
