  • FOOTBALL: Eagles grab control in 2nd half

    CARLISLE — Bethlehem got its 2015 season started on a high note Friday as the Eagles took over in the second half on the road to dispatch Nicholas County, 28-8.

    Coach Ron Koontz said his team started slow and committed some mental mistakes in the first half, miscues that “tend to happen early in the year,” and went into the break up 14-8.

  • FOOTBALL: Generals strike gold at Knox

    FORT KNOX — Getting prepared to face a team that runs an atypical offense like the single wing is no easy task, but the Thomas Nelson Generals sure made it look that way Friday night.

    After taking the first quarter to figure things out, the Generals shut down former Class 2A District 4 rival Fort Knox, holding the host Eagles to 97 yards rushing in a 42-0 win at McAdams Field.

  • PREP SPORTS ROUNDUP: Banshees stun No. 17 Generals on the pitch

    Coming into Wednesday undefeated and buoyed by a move to No. 17 in the rankings after knocking off defending region champ Elizabethtown, Thomas Nelson appeared poised to back up last year’s 19th District championship crown.

    Bethlehem had other ideas.

    The Banshees struck for two goals within three minutes of each other in the first half to take a 2-0 lead and were able to make it stand up in a 5-3 win at Lally Field.

  • FOOTBALL: Pride on the line as Generals visit Eagles

    Last year’s 14-13 Thomas Nelson win over Bethlehem was a game-changer, for both programs.

    For the Generals, it was history being made with the school’s first-ever varsity win after an 0-11 start. For the Eagles, it was a sharp blow to the ego for a team that had whipped Thomas Nelson 50-0 the year before.

    “You never want to be a statistic,” Bethlehem coach Ron Koontz said.

  • FOOTBALL: Bowl opener sees Cards win, Tigers fall

    Nelson County 35, Marion County 7

    If you win the battles in the trenches, then it’s a good indication you can win any game on the gridiron. Nelson County (1-0) not only won the game in the trenches, but also used a defensive blitz to power their way to victory on Saturday night against Marion County.

    VOLLEYBALL: Tigers start hot

    Bardstown picked up a pair of match wins to open the 2015 season, besting North Bullitt on Monday and North Hardin on Tuesday in home victories.

    In Monday’s 25-20, 12-25, 25-22 decision over North Bullitt, the Tigers got big performances from Amber Mason — who had eight kills, six blocks, seven digs and two aces — and Codi Tingle, who added 11 assists. Elayne Bischoff pitched in with seven kills.

  • FOOTBALL: Local bowl game long time coming

    Only a handful of cities and towns across the Bluegrass can boast two different schools with state championship hardware in their trophy case, and this is one of them.

    That’s rarified air, so it’s only fitting an area with as rich of a high school football tradition as this would have its own bowl game.

    The inaugural Bardstown-Nelson County Bowl makes the scene Saturday with a doubleheader at the Tigers’ Garnis Martin Field that serves as a boon for local football fans.
