  • Cougars hosting South Oldham

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – While last week’s 38-33 loss to Oldham County was disappointing, it wasn’t the end of the world for the Bullitt Central Cougars.

    The maroon and gray can really make a mess of the top end of Class 5-A, District 3 if they can defeat visiting South Oldham on Friday in the final home game of the season for the Cougars.

    Yes, South Oldham has not lost a district game since realignment four years ago. That includes four wins over the Cougars, including two victories in 2016.

Once on the court, Bullitt East won the first game 25-20 and despite a sub-par second game in which they lost 15-25, the red and gold surged back ahead and won the match 25-14, 25-20.

  • Dragons breath fire on Chargers’ upset hopes

     MOUNT WASHINGTON — If football games were won or loss based on time of possession, the Bullitt East Chargers would have been in the ball game Friday night against visiting South Oldham.

    But, that’s not the way the scoreboard reads.

    With four touchdowns over 40 yards, the Dragons remained perfect in district play with a 49-7 victory.

    “We played hard until the end,” Charger head coach Mark Sander said of his team.

  • Late rally comes up just short for Cougars

  • First half goal lifts Lady Chargers past Mercy

     LOUISVILLE – A two-day and 90 minute postponement was no trouble for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers last week as they made a first half goal stand up as the red and gold got the best of 24th District rival Mercy by a 1-0 score.

    The win gives Bullitt East the top seed for next week’s district tournament which will also be played at Mercy. In five of the previous six years, the two Sixth Region powers have played three times each season – in the regular season, in the district final and then in the Sixth Region championship game.
