  • WEEKEND ROUNDUP: Banshees fall to No. 6 O’Cath in All A finals

    Bethlehem picked up some late-season momentum over the weekend, advancing to the finals of the girls’ Touchstone Energy All A Classic soccer tournament, falling to ranked Owensboro Catholic in a shootout, 3-2.

    “I couldn’t be more proud of the effort the girls put in,” Banshees coach Danny Rossoll said. “The girls worked so hard.”

    To get to Sunday’s finals at the Elizabethtown Sports Park, Bethlehem (9-6) had to win a pair of Saturday matches over Hazard and Lexington Christian.

  • HIGH SCHOOL ROUNDUP: Monday critical in settling district seeds

  • FOOTBALL: No. 1 Colts gallop away in 2nd half

    Bardstown rallied from the first big hole it found itself in Friday against No. 1 DeSales.

    The second one proved too deep, however, as the visiting Colts turned a 17-14 halftime lead into an emphatic 39-14 win over the Tigers, ranked as high as No. 3 in Class 2A by some outlets.

    “They’re a great football team,” Bardstown coach David Clark said. “You can’t have four turnovers against a good team. You just can’t put yourself in a hole like we did.”

  • FOOTBALL: Doss seals win over NC on late interception

    Nelson County’s bid for a late comeback fell short on Friday night, as Doss held on for a 20-15 district decision.

    The Cardinals had their opportunity with under a minute to play, but a late interception by the Dragons captured the victory.

    “We made some changes tonight, and I felt our team chemistry was better,” Cardinals coach Jamie Egli said.

    One change was at quarterback, where junior starter Cameron Cornish was moved to wideout and defense in favor of junior Willie Moore, usually a receiver and cornerback.

  • HIGH SCHOOL ROUNDUP: Tigers stop Cards; claim 19th District's top seed

    Bardstown is the king of the hill following Tuesday’s 3-1 win at Nelson County, locking up the top seed in next month’s 19th District tournament in the process.

    Haylee Koger got the Tigers on the board first, in the game’s eighth minute, but the Cardinals were able to rebound, equalizing it in the first half when Marly Walls scored off a corner kick.

    Bardstown got the lead back for good late in the first half, however, when Emma Cecil scored on a penalty kick with less than two minutes to go before the break.

  • HIGH SCHOOL ROUNDUP: Cards rally past Tigers in 4 sets

    After five matches on Saturday in a runner-up performance in the Citizens Bank Volleyball Throwdown at Bath County, Nelson County looked like it might be feeling the aftereffects when the Cardinals dropped a set right out of the gate Monday to visiting Bardstown.

    But it was the Tigers — winners of four of six matches in tournament play at Anderson County on Friday and Saturday — who ended up running out of gas, as the Cardinals rallied from a 25-13 first-set loss to take the next three, 25-19, 25-20, 25-19, and win the match in four.
