  • FOOTBALL: Tigers rout Knights for first win

    After Marion County scored on the opening drive of the game at Bardstown on Thursday, Tiger senior Montrez Railley could be found stalking the sidelines imploring his defense to tighten up.

    And tighten up it did, as Bardstown scored 42 straight points and held Marion County scoreless until the final minutes of the game on a late touchdown that set the game’s final margin at 42-13.

  • FOOTBALL: Hurricane spinoff moves three games to Thursday

    Because of the anticipated remnants of Hurricane Harvey entering Kentucky on Friday night, three of the four games involving local teams have been rescheduled for Thursday night.

    Nelson County’s visit to Fairdale on Friday was the first to be changed, at about 8 a.m. Wednesday morning. That game will now be played Thursday at 7 p.m. at Fairdale.

    A couple hours later, administration at LaRue County, after consulting with Thomas Nelson athletic officials, decided to move their game from Friday to 7:30 p.m. Thursday in Hodgenville.

  • PREP SPORTS ROUNDUP: BHS, TNHS win VB tourneys

    Bardstown and Thomas Nelson played a lot of volleyball in a short span during last weekend’s tournaments, using the time to bond and grow as teams. And pick up some trophies in the process.

  • On the record with: Thomas Nelson’s Ethan Lamar

    Thomas Nelson senior soccer player Ethan Lamar is this week’s Kentucky Standard/PLG-TV 13 Student-Athlete of the Week.

    One of Thomas Nelson’s top forwards on the soccer pitch, Ethan carries a 4.0 GPA and is involved in the school’s Student Organization Council, and plays for the Generals’ basketball team in the winter.

    Kentucky Standard sports editor Peter W. Zubaty had a few questions for Ethan to better get to know him.

  • PREP SPORTS ROUNDUP: Boys’ soccer districts heating up

    The 19th District boys’ soccer race is starting to take shape, and like many of the district’s coaches suggested in the preseason, there’s not a lot separating the area teams.

    Thursday night found Nelson County and Bethlehem matched up at Lally Field, while just a few blocks away, Bardstown was hosting Thomas Nelson in a rematch from the past two district title games.

  • FOOTBALL: Glasgow rolls past young Bardstown, 47-9

    You might say Bardstown coach David Clark has seen enough of the Smiths.

    Just one week after Purdue recruit Kadin Smith scored four touchdowns to lead Spencer County to a 36-14 win over the Tigers, another Smith — Dalvin — rushed for scores of 75 and 91 yards and passed for three more touchdowns as Glasgow rolled to a 48-9 win over Clark’s team.

    “They are both very good players, and they were two very good football teams we opened against,” Clark said.

  • FOOTBALL: Generals rout Cardinals

    Thomas Nelson extended Nelson County’s current losing streak to 12 games Friday night, building a 9-0 lead after just four plays from scrimmage on the way to a 37-13 win.

    “This is an important game for us, because we went to middle school with all of them,” Generals senior Chase Howard said of his Cardinal opponents. “We came in here with a lot of intensity, and a lot of hype coming into this game. We worked hard all week.”

    Bethlehem stared down a two-touchdown deficit heading into the fourth quarter against Washington County at Lally Field Friday night, and rallied all the way back to force overtime.

    But after the Commanders (2-0) scored on the first overtime series, the Eagles were unable to answer, falling 29-22.

    Bethlehem coach Jesse Cantrall was proud of his team’s effort throughout the game.
