  • North draws first blood over BC...

     HEBRON ESTATES – Winning most of the key points at the end of each game, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles pulled out a 25-23, 25-21, 25-21 victory over Bullitt Central in the first meeting of the season between the two rivals.

    Actually, the outcome shouldn’t be a surprise. Since the 2012, the first when the two Bullitt County teams were placed together in the 23rd District, North Bullitt has won the first regular season meeting. That should be important as it has given the Lady Eagles the top seed for the district tournament.

  • North & East clash Wednesday

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – In the most anticipated soccer match of the regular season, North Bullitt and Bullitt East will renewal their rivalry once more when the two Sixth Region powers collide at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday on the Lady Chargers’ home field.

    This will be the first meeting between the two squads since last season’s Sixth Region championship game, a contest that North Bullitt won 1-0.

  • Turnovers fritter away BE’s hopes

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Against the better teams on their schedule, the Bullitt East Chargers don’t have the luxury of being able to overcome turnovers and miscues.

    Unfortunately, on Friday against visiting Central Hardin, one of the better teams on the Chargers’ slate this season, Bullitt East turned the ball over four times, misplayed two short kick-offs and went backwards on two straight plays before being tackled in the endzone for a safety.

    With that news it didn’t turn out to be a surprise that the Chargers lost to the Bruins 43-7.

  • Touchdown at 2:07 lifts Cougars...

     TAYLORSVILLE – A single game does not a season make.

    Bullitt Central head coach Matt Kuehn tried to tell his players that lesson all of last week, but the results were mixed.

    More than his own team taking a step back following a 42-13 win over Fairdale in the first game of the season, Kuehn knew very well that the Spencer County Bears were a much better team than they had shown a week earlier in a 38-0 loss to Bardstown.

  • Offense in high gear as Eagles...

     OKOLONA — Adam Billings was pleased as his North Bullitt Eagles evened its record at 1-1 with a victory Friday over the Southern Trojans.

    But, game two in the season isn’t nearly as important as the final five Friday nights when district opponents line up across the field.

    “It’s not all about tonight,” said Billings. “It’s not about the scoreboard.”

    Although his goal as a coach is to have his team at peak performance by Sept. 21, Billings was able to smile after the 54-34 win over the Trojans.

  • Football team looks for city...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE --  Whether they were the Jets or the Raiders or the Titans, youngsters in Shepherdsville have had the opportunity to play football under some banner for the past 40 years.

    Grant Knox currently runs the Shepherdsville Titans program. The various teams practice on a pair of baseball fields in the back of Frank E. Simon Park.

    He is hoping that the Shepherdsville City Council will help improve the lighting situation at the fields.

  • A little rain couldn’t dampen...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Once again this season The Pioneer News will run the results from the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League in each Wednesday edition during the season.

    The statistics used each week are provided to the newspaper by the league and the individual teams. Questions about yardage, scoring and tackles should be directed to the league and those teams.

  • East wins Bullitt Cup title with...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After a horrific start to the season, a 9-1 setback at home to North Hardin, the Bullitt East Chargers rebounded in strong fashion later in the first week of soccer’s regular season, beating Henry County 5-3 before retaining the Bullitt Cup trophy with wins over North Bullitt and Bullitt Central on Saturday.

    The Bullitt Cup is the annual meeting between the three Bullitt County boys’ soccer teams. It is played on the first Saturday of the regular season and should rotate between the three programs.

  • North’s winning ways way too...

     HEBRON ESTATES – High school soccer coaches don’t always see everything in black and white or wins and losses.

    North Bullitt head coach Amber Mink knew that her team was going to beat Bullitt Central on Monday in the first game of 23rd District play for both programs. The Lady Eagles are the defending Sixth Region champions and had beaten their county rivals seven straight times since Mink became the head coach during the 2014 season.

  • BC scores 35 straight points in...

     FAIRDALE – After giving up a touchdown less than two minutes into the game, the Bullitt Central Cougars responded with 35 consecutive points on Saturday night to beat Fairdale 42-13 in the King of the Bluegrass Bowl at Fairdale.

    That first score by the Bulldogs came on back-to-back play that included a couple of missed defensive assignments by the Cougars. After shoring up those mistakes, the Cougars’ defense allowed Fairdale just two yards and one first down over the next five possessions.
