  • 19th DISTRICT BOYS' SOCCER SEMIFINALS: Eagles upend top-seeded Tigers, 2-1

    Bethlehem picked the most opportune time to snap an 11-match losing streak to 19th District teams, upending top-seeded Bardstown 2-1 on Wednesday in the opening round of district play at Thomas Nelson.

    The Eagles’ last win against a district foe was on Sept. 8, 2016, when they stopped the Tigers 1-0 in a rain-shortened affair, and Bethlehem was 1-16 in three years under coach Jody Spalding until Wednesday’s No. 4 seed over No. 1 seed upset.

    Nelson County is back in the district championship for the first time since 2014, thanks in large part to Jaren Brown’s second-half hat trick that helped the Cardinals pull away from an upset-minded Thomas Nelson squad to win 6-2 in Wednesday’s 19th District semifinals.

    Cardinals coach Stan Hayes was proud of the way his team played in the second half after not executing great in the first half.

    Cross said coming up with the title on the line was nerve-wracking.

  • A new reality

    Christa Grimes was in the shower when she felt the lump in her left breast.

    “All the fear goes through your head when you find it,” she said.

    At 31, she didn’t expect to be diagnosed with breast cancer, but she was. Life was about to become a whole lot different.

    After finding the lump, Grimes made an appointment with her doctor that same afternoon. At first, they thought it might just be fibroid tissue — she was still young, after all — but they wanted to go ahead and schedule a mammogram.
