  • 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.

  • Area soccer needs a few more good officials

        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.

     ELIZABETHTOWN – The high school cross-country season got started in earnest on Saturday night as five of the six local cross-country teams competed in the Central Kentucky Run for the Gold at the Elizabethtown Sports Park.

           SHEPHERDSVILLE – On Monday, Bullitt Central football coach Matt Kuehn said that senior Daylin Huff had successful surgery on his broken leg and had returned home earlier that day.

          Huff, who suffered the gruesome injury just before halftime on Friday of the Cougars’ game against Southern, was transported by ambulance from the field as the half was stopped early with the teams sent to their respective dressing rooms.

    Huff had the surgery on Saturday and then was released on Monday.

  • BE girls move to head of class with 6-1 win

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Scoring three times in a five minute span just 16 minutes into the game, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers looked like the team to beat in the Sixth Region this season as they beat defending champion North Bullitt 6-1.

    The win by the red and gold snapped a three match losing streak against their county rivals. Last Wednesday’s showdown was the first between the two regional powers since North Bullitt beat the Lady Chargers 1-0 in last year’s Sixth Region final.

  • Quick start gets East first victory

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Scoring twice in the first quarter, the Bullitt East Chargers made that advantage hold up on Friday as they beat visiting Spencer County 13-7.

    The contest between the two winless squads this season moved to 13-7 with 5:50 remaining in the third quarter but then neither team could score over the final quarter and a half of play.

  • Eagles make all the right moves against J-town

     HEBRON ESTATES — It was an electric night of high school football on Friday at North Bullitt.

    Mother Nature provided the first wave with rain and lightning which would delay the start of the game against Jeffersontown by 45 minutes.

    But, when the play began, it would be the Eagles who put on an electrifying show en route to a 30-7 victory over the No. 10 ranked Class 6-A team.

    The victory improved North Bullitt to 2-1 on the year, matching the total number of wins from last season.
