  • East grabs first post-season win...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – A golden defensive effort was more than enough for the Bullitt East Chargers on Friday as they opened the Class 5-A play-offs at home with a 30-7 victory over North Hardin.

    The win was the first for Bullitt East in post-season play since 2008 when the red and gold won four straight games before losing in the state final to Bell County.

    It was just two years ago that North Hardin last made a visit to Mount Washington for the play-offs. In 2011, the Trojans left with a 35-14 victory.

  • Bullitt East opens with an...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Charges will open the Class 5-A football play-offs on Friday at home against North Hardin, a team with a 1-9 record.

    But don’t be fooled too much. The Trojans have played a relatively difficult schedule. More importantly, Bullitt East head coach Darrell Vincent sees a North Hardin team with a lot of athletes who score a lot of points.

    “They are very athletic,” Vincent said on Monday. “It’s hard to believe their record is 1-9.”

  • NB hits the road Friday

      LEITCHFIELD – The North Bullitt Eagles will open the 2013 Class 5-A play-offs on the road on Friday as they travel to Grayson County to take on the Cougars.

    This will be the second meeting in three years between the two schools in the post-season. In 2011, Grayson County made the trip to North Bullitt for a game won by the Eagles 27-7.

  • Central has a tough opener

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The bigger the opponent, the bigger the glory from an upset.

    That is the mindset this week for the Bullitt Central Cougars as they will head to Radcliff on Friday to take on traditional Kentucky power John Hardin in the first-round of the Class 5-A play-offs.

  • Chiefs tight at start but...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Think about a team going the entire season without allowing a touchdown.

    And think about only allowing three first downs.

    Those were the stats for the Overdale Chiefs in the A division of the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League this year.

    Going into the championship game a huge favorite against the Mount Washington Colts, Overdale players, coaches and fans may have been a bit shocked to see the Chiefs behind at halftime.

  • Colts able to slow down fast...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Coming into the championship game of the B division for the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League, there was the perfect opportunity for a monumental upset.

    Having a perfect season, the Mount Washington Colts had every reason to be confident.

    And facing a Shepherdsville Titan team which was a sixth seed and had won only two games in the regular season, the Colts may have been a bit overconfident.

    That is what concerned Colt coach Matt Cashon.

  • Colts win PW title in defensive...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - When they played in the regular season, the contest was decided by a touchdown.

    In the championship game for the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League on Saturday, it was only right that the top two teams - Mount Washington and Old Mill - would square off.

    This time, the game came down to an extra point and a lot of defense. 

    The Mount Washington Colts remained undefeated with a 7-6 victory over the Bengals.

  • Dolphins use big plays, tough...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - After coaching his third team to a Little Bullitts title in the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League, Jeremy Jenkins is finished at that level.

    His third title came Saturday as his Pleasant Grove Dolphins defeated the top-seeded Maryville Patriots 12-0.

    While the margin might seem comfortable, Jenkins was never comfortable in a league where defense has ruled.

    On its second possession, Jenkins said the coaches saw something open up the middle.

  • Champs - Lady Chargers win...

     LOUISVILLE – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers introduced themselves to Class AAA with a bang on Saturday, winning the Region 3 title with a powerful performance against some of the top teams in the area.

    Led by sophomore Sierra Poppell, who finished second, the Lady Chargers had four of the top nine runners to finish with 35 points. Defending champion Manual was second 49 points while Male was third with 91 points with Butler was fourth with 93 points.

  • ‘Oh so close’ is just ‘oh-no’...

     LOUISVILLE – There was more than a little disappointment after the boys’ race in the Class AAA, Region 3 Cross-Country Championships for the Bullitt East Chargers.

    Amazingly, the Bullitt East boys’ team didn’t come up a point short of qualifying for this week’s Kentucky State Cross-Country Championships. The Chargers came up zero points short.
