  • Miscues at key times sink...

      CRESTWOOD – Sometimes, no matter how much you want something, you have to admit that the other team is just better.

    That was certainly the case for the Bullitt Central Cougars on Friday as for the second time in a month they had nothing for the South Oldham Dragons in the second round of the Class 5-A play-offs. On a bitterly cold night with a few snow flurries, the Dragons were breathing fire as they rolled to a 56-7 victory.

    In the regular season meeting, South Oldham had beaten the Cougars 70-14 in Shepherdsville.

  • East Gold claims ‘A’ crown

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Completing a second straight undefeated season, the East Charger Gold team capped it off on Saturday with a 46-24 victory over the Central Wildcats in the championship game of the ‘A’ Division of the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League.

    While the victory may have appeared to be in the bag as the Gold team had defeated the Wildcats in three previous meetings this season, Gold team head coach Brandon Egan didn’t see it being that cut and dry.

  • ‘B’ Final -- Dolphins beat...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The Cedar Grove Vikings had the lead for 70 seconds on Saturday in the ‘B’ Division championship game in the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League.

    That lead was short-lived. On the ensuing kick-off, Pleasant Grove’s Mikey West, playing on the front line of the receiving team, grabbed the short kick and immediately headed up field. He broke one tackle and then found only grass between him in the endzone as he raced 55 yards for the touchdown.

  • PeeWee Final -- Dolphins ride...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE — It was a defensive struggle on Saturday as the Pleasant Grove Dolphins claimed the Pee Wee division championship in the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League. 

    Scoring once in the first half and holding off a two-point conversion, the Dolphins claimed a 7-6 victory over the Old Mill Bengals on a brilliant Saturday afternoon.

    The victors took the opening kickoff and held the ball nearly seven minutes before ending the seven-play drive with a touchdown through the air.

  • Little Bullitts’ Final -- Cedar...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE — The Pleasant Grove Dolphins were looking to repeat as champions in the Little Bullitt division of the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League.

    The Cedar Grove Vikings had something else in mind.

    At the end of the highly-competed contest, it would be the Vikings who were carrying home the big trophy.

    Cedar Grove came from behind to score a 7-6 victory over the Dolphins.
