  • GIRLS' 5th REGION SEMIFINALS: Top-ranked E'town turns back NC

    MUNFORDVILLE — For a little more than two quarters of play on Friday, the Nelson County Cardinals were defying the odds and bidding for an upset over the state’s No. 1-ranked team during the semifinals of the girls’ 5th Region tournament at Hart County.

    But, as the game faded toward its end, so did the Cardinals’ hopes of reaching the regional finals for a second straight year, as Elizabethtown finished the game on a 32-13 run to close out a 59-36 victory.

  • BOYS' 5th REGION QUARTERFINALS: Bardstown advances with QF rout of Marion Co.

    Time stood still — or so it seemed — for the Bardstown basketball team during the first half of its 80-49 win over Marion County in the opening round of the 5th Region basketball tournament Thursday at Nelson County High School.

    A malfunctioning clock during the first half kept the Tigers as concerned about the time and score as they were about their performance.

  • BOYS' 5th REGION QUARTERFINALS: Taylor routs Nelson

    Nelson County did something you never want to do as a host of any postseason event on Wednesday: Be the first one to exit the party early.

    Taylor County (22-8) — the defending regional champs one of the favorites to revisit Rupp Arena this year —played like a heavyweight in the opening round of the boys’ 5th Region tournament, dealing Nelson County an 84-50 defeat, but not before both teams relished some early blows.

    Each squad was hit with technical fouls within the first 10 minutes of the game for some dicey moves on both ends of the floor.

  • GIRLS' 5th REGION TOURNAMENT: Dragons slay Tigers' upset bid

    MUNFORDVILLE — Bardstown put a scare into Green County in Sunday’s girls’ 5th Region tournament quarterfinal at Hart County, leading the highly rated Dragons for nearly three quarters.

    But in the end it was the Green County defense, keyed by Mya Schrembs’ nine steals that led to either buckets or free throws on the way to a 29-point night for the junior guard as the Dragons rallied in the second half to eliminate Bardstown, 63-51.
