  • HIGH SCHOOL ROUNDUP: Banshees go 8-0 against district rivals

    Bethlehem sealed up the top seed in the 19th District tournament last week, and on Monday wrapped up an undefeated tear through the district with a straight-set win over Bardstown.

    VOLLEYBALL: Cards storm back; Banshees win again

  • FOOTBALL: Cards drop sixth straight

    LOUISVILLE — Nelson County coach Jamie Egli would be just fine and dandy if never had to see Western’s Adrian Williams-Ralston again.

    Last year, the Warriors’ running back ran for 388 yards and five touchdowns in a 55-50 shootout win on the Cardinals’ home field to win the Class 4A District 4 title. On Friday, Williams-Ralston did it again, rushing for three scores and more than 200 yards to lead his squad to a 42-26 win, extending Nelson County’s current losing streak to six games.

  • FOOTBALL: CAL, rains throttle Bardstown in top-five clash

    LOUISVILLE — Bardstown fell into a big hole early Friday less than five minutes into the game, and Christian Academy — Louisville used its stout defense and ball-control offense, as well as a muddy field, to make sure the Tigers stayed buried.

    The Centurions’ 19-7 home win dropped the Tigers to 4-2 overall and 1-2 in Class 2A District 4 play, likely forcing Bardstown to hit the road for the first round of the playoffs.

  • FOOTBALL: Paris holds Bethlehem at bay

    On what turned out to be a cool and rain-driven night for football, Bethlehem committed five turnovers, including a late fumble in the fourth quarter, which helped visiting Paris seal a 32-22 victory.

    “We played hard and didn’t give up,” Bethlehem coach Ron Koontz said. “We were missing a few of our top guns going into the game, and that showed tonight. To have had a chance to win the game late, we displayed what we are capable of. The positive side is showing we can score and move the football.”

  • FOOTBALL: Generals score comeback win at Shawnee

    LOUISVILLE — Thomas Nelson cracked open its post-season playoff window Friday, notching a 20-16 road win over Shawnee.

    The Generals (4-3, 1-2 dist.) bounced back after a surprising loss to Washington County the week before, as junior tailback Jonathan Whiteman netted nearly 200 yards carrying the football.
