  • PREP SPORTS ROUNDUP: TNHS boys start soccer season on fire

    Thomas Nelson is off to a fast start for the boys’ soccer season, winning its first three matches, all on the road, including Monday’s district opener at Bethlehem, where the Generals dealt the Eagles a 2-0 setback.

    Tyler Haycraft and Ethan Lamar got the job done offensively, with each scoring a goal and assisting on the other. Senior keeper Jarret Stiles recorded his third win and first shutout of the year.

  • On the record with: Bethlehem’s James Blanford

    After a few years of hiatus, The Kentucky Standard and PLG-TV 13 are relaunching the Student-Athlete of the Week feature. The program is a means to recognize not just great athletes, but great students, leaders and citizens.

    Over the course of 40 weeks, we will be featuring 10 students (five boys and five girls) from each of the four high schools, recognizing the best representatives of each school.

    This week’s nominee is Bethlehem senior soccer player and archer James Blanford.

  • FOOTBALL: Marion offense too much as Nelson falls in opener

    The records will show that a flash of lightning early in the second quarter stopped the Marion County-Nelson County football game for nearly an hour.

    However, lightning actually struck much earlier — on the game’s first play from scrimmage — when the Knights’ Trey Downs took a handoff from Mason Sullivan and scampered 49 yards for a touchdown.

    It was one of his five first-half touchdowns as Marion County blasted the Cardinals 54-21 in the second game of the Bardstown-Nelson County Bowl.

  • FOOTBALL: Tigers roll over top-10 Spencer County

    Bardstown may have been the underdogs going into Saturday’s rain-soaked opening game in the Bardstown-Nelson County Bowl against Class 4A No. 6 Spencer County, but the Tigers certainly didn’t play like underdogs against a team that beat them by five touchdowns last year.

    Instead, Bardstown was the aggressor from the beginning, scoring on the first play from scrimmage and never looking back in dominating Spencer County in a 29-13 win at Nelson County High School.

  • FOOTBALL: Eagles’ offense sputters in season opener

    You never measure a season after only one game, but you do learn a lot about your team and the areas of concern — and the one big concern for Bethlehem is its line play.

    The Eagles were left with a bitter taste of defeat on Friday after Class 1A No. 9 Nicholas County nabbed a 14-0 victory at Lally Field to open the 2016 regular season.

  • FOOTBALL: TNHS defense sparks rout of Fort Knox

    Thomas Nelson didn’t get off to the fast start on offense coach Kyle Boblitt would have liked, but his defense and special teams more than made up for it by sparking a 47-8 win over Fort Knox to open the season Friday.

    Boblitt said he was pleased with the way his team was able to take advantage of a young Fort Knox team’s miscues, but cautioned, “We still have a ton of work to do.”

  • FOOTBALL: Big-play Bardstown takes it to Spencer Co.

    In last year’s Bardstown-Nelson County Bowl, Spencer County played the role of bully spoiler, routing Bardstown in the bowl’s first season.

    The Tigers got their revenge this year, however, scoring on the game’s first play of scrimmage and never looking back in whipping the Bears — ranked No. 6 in the preseason in Class 4A — handily, 29-13.
