  • Friday Night Lights!!

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- There are still two weeks remaining in the regular season for Kentucky football teams, but in Bullitt County there are no more home games.

    This Friday will be the final rotation of Class 5-A District games, but for all practical purposes, the final Friday has no bearing on the post-season as the four play-off teams and their seeds have already been decided.

  • Lady Chargers make it two in a row over Mercy

     LOUISVILLE – If one is ‘just fine’ then two must be just perfect.

    Bullitt East girls’ soccer coach Steve Gentry said he was ‘just fine’ with a 1-0 victory after his team beat district-rival Mercy back on Sept. 26, the Lady Chargers’ first-ever regular season win over the perennial Sixth Region powerhouse.

    If that was the case two weeks earlier, then it was twice as good last Thursday as Bullitt East rolled to a 2-0 victory over the Jaguars to claim a second straight 24th District title.

  • Tigers too tough for BE to tame

     LOUISVILLE – Veteran Bullitt East soccer coach Mike Brangers feels that his team is narrowing the gap when it comes to chasing down Fern Creek, a team that has prospered in recent years with a deep contingent of talented foreign-born players.

    Unfortunately, there is still work to be done.

  • BC makes NB work for seventh title

      HEBRON ESTATES – Just because you have won six consecutive 23rd District Girls’ Soccer titles doesn’t mean that the seventh one is going to be easy.

    The North Bullitt Lady Eagles learned that on Wednesday, needing to battle until the final seconds to earn a 2-1 victory over Bullitt Central.

  • Mixed night Monday in regional play

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Local teams had some mixed results on Monday evening as regional play opened in volleyball and soccer.

    In volleyball action, Bullitt Central held off a scrappy Beth Haven team, winning 3-1.

    Bullitt Central started a little slow but evened the score midway in the first set en route to a 25-19, 25-16, 20-25, 25-22 victory.

    Karen Vogt’s team went from a power match against North Bullitt to a softer, more touch contest against Beth Haven.

  • Bullitt Central reverses the tables on North -- again

     SHEPHERDSVILLE — Karen Vogt wants her volleyball players at Bullitt Central to go out and have fun.

    The more fun the Lady Cougars have, the better the results.

    On Wednesday, Bullitt Central had a whole lot of fun as a repeat of 2017 occurred. The Lady Cougars lost in the regular season to North Bullitt but came back to win the 23rd District title.

    In winning its third straight district title, the Lady Cougars defeated North Bullitt 25-20, 15-25, 25-23, 21-25, 15-9.

  • Regional action in high gear this week

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- After a full week of district action, area soccer and volleyball teams will be back in action this week for regional play at various venues around Louisville.

    It was mostly good news for the seven area teams still alive as the draws went as well as could be hoped.

    Volleyball Repeat

    Incredibly, the Sixth Region Volleyball Tournament has the exact same eight teams as a year ago and over and above that the four quarter-finals pit the same teams as a year ago.

  • Dragons show no mercy in rolling past BC

     SHEPHERDSVILLE --  On Senior Night, quarterback Jacob Robertson hooked up with Daylin Huff on a short pass for no gain.

    But, on a rainy night, that opening play of the game may have been the highlight of a 70-14 setback to the South Oldham Dragons.

    With Huff out with an injury, the initial play was agreed upon by both coaches. And it gave the senior duo the opportunity to connect on one last pass in their high school career.

    After the ceremonial play, it was down to business.

  • The Clash ‘18 -- a rally for the ages by East

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Scoring 29 unanswered points in the fourth quarter and overtime, the Bullitt East Chargers pulled victory from the jaws of defeat on Friday, beating rival North Bullitt 43-36 in the 39th meeting in The Clash.

    The win was highly improbable. Bullitt East did not have a first down in the first half and only had five first downs for the entire game. In addition, North Bullitt had a better than 2-to-1 advantage in total yardage, 496 to 246.

  • Play-off spot the goal in final district meeting

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – After 20 years as district rivals, the final regular season meeting between the North Bullitt Eagles and Bullitt East Chargers within the same classification will come on Friday in the 39th showdown in The Clash.
