    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.

  • KENTUCKY STANDARD 2017 CROSS COUNTRY PREVIEW: TNHS boys bouncing back this year

    This is a good year to be associated with the Thomas Nelson boys’ cross country team.

    And why not?

    The Generals return the nucleus of their strong team from a year ago and, according to coach Matt Hoyes, have been ranked as high as ninth in the state based on the runners’ times from last year.

    “Those times can only get better,” he said. “We didn’t lose one scoring guy to graduation, and I have one guy who is not coming back to run, and he was like our fifth score.”

    Special to The Standard

    It is no secret that there are a couple of key changes to the Bethlehem cross country team this season.

    One of those changes starts at the top. After 11 seasons, a new face is at the helm of the program. Jimi Burress is the man who was chosen as the new head coach for Bethlehem, taking over for Eddie Masterson.

  • KENTUCKY STANDARD 2017 CROSS COUNTRY PREVIEW: Tiger girls return everybody

    Bardstown authored a surprising runner-up result at last year’s region, qualifying its entire girls’ squad for the state meet for the first time since 2010.

    And with the entire cast of characters returning this year, the Tigers don’t figure to have as long a wait for their next team state berth.

    “We worked really hard to get to state last year, and we hope to keep it going and do the same thing this year,” senior Lauren Roby said. “Maybe even get region champion, and definitely make it to state again.”

  • PREP SPORTS ROUNDUP: Manual trips up Bethlehem

    Bethlehem, ranked No. 13 in preseason in the state girls’ soccer polls, got its first big test of the season Monday with a visit from No. 11 DuPont Manual.

    And after building a two-goal lead in the first 15 minutes of the first half, it looked like the Banshees would be a candidate to climb in the rankings.
