  • Tiger boys, girls fall to Bulldogs

    Bardstown faced John Hardin in boys and girls action Friday — albeit at separate locations — with the Tigers suffering their first loss of the season in both instances.

    In the boys’ game at Bardstown, the Tigers rallied from an 11-point halftime deficit, but a game-tying attempt with less than seven seconds remaining misfired.

    The Bulldogs’ 1-2 combo of Blake Bonner (30 points) and Malcolm Foster (20) were too much to overcome. The Tigers got 16 points apiece from Cody Edelen and Jordan Brewer.

  • Drake's big second half lifts Cardinals

    Cierra Drake shook off a foul-filled first half by scoring 15 of her game-high 17 after the break to help Nelson County put away Bethlehem, 63-35, Friday.

    The sophomore said she had to get her mind into the game after collecting three personal fouls — one of them after reacting to an official’s call after she was whistled for a foul going after a rebound — during a first half where she saw just three minutes of court time.

  • Cardinals slip away with win over Eagles

    Bethlehem rallied all the way back from a 21-point deficit to take a lead late against visiting Nelson County, but the Cardinals held the Eagles to just three points and forced three turnovers during the final 2:35 to escape with a 53-51 win.

    A relieved Cardinal coach Doug Johnson said his team showed a lot of heart down the stretch in getting their sea legs back underneath them after squandering the big lead.

    Tigers winning easy

    The Tigers improved to 2-0 under new coach James “Boo” Brewer, and have done it with an exclamation point attached, routing Marion County by 17 on Friday and thrashing Anderson County by 30 in Bardstown’s home opener Monday.

    Brewer said he didn’t expect his squad to play so well this early.

    “Give credit to the kids — they really worked hard in practice,” he said.

  • Bardstown girls beat Bethlehem 44-22

    Central Hardin 67, Nelson Co. 57

    Nelson County looked good early on in building a lead as large as 12 in the second quarter, but Central Hardin outscored the Cardinals 45-27 after the break to win the season opener for both schools Tuesday.

    Bryce Greer’s 21 points led Nelson County, and Quentin Brooks chipped in 16. Matt Nichols’ 24 points and 20 rebounds led the homestanding Bruins.

    Nelson County faces North Hardin at 6:45 p.m. Saturday in the Campbellsville Tip-Off Classic.

  • Bardstown infused with new coach, players


    Contributing writer

    First-year Bardstown coach James “Boo” Brewer will demand a lot of his new players, because he does the same of himself, whether that’s as a player or as a coach.

    “I won’t ask anyone to work harder than I did,” said the Tiger legend. “There is only one thing that will take a player off the floor and that is lazy play and hanging their heads.”
