    After trailing 12-0 at the half, Bethlehem was able to control the pace of play in the second half to rally back and beat Hart County 13-12 on a rain-soaked turf field at Nelson County High School.

    The contest was originally scheduled to be played in Munfordville, but heavy rains from the remnants of Hurricane Harvey led Hart County school officials to deem their field unplayable, forcing the location change.

  • FOOTBALL: Bulldogs run away from Cardinals

    FAIRDALE — Nelson County played tight and had a lead at the end of the first quarter of its Thursday visit to Fairdale, but things got out of hand in the second half as the Bulldogs rolled to a 47-18 win.

    Running back LaQuante Jackson was the biggest thorn in the Cardinals’ side, as the Bulldog senior ran for touchdowns of 1, 43 and 19 yards to pace the Fairdale offense. In addition, the Bulldogs cashed in on a pair of Nelson miscues, scoring a touchdown off a blocked punt return and an interception return.

  • FOOTBALL: Hawks too much for Generals

    HODGENVILLE — LaRue County is off to one of the best starts in school history, and Thomas Nelson was just the latest victim, falling 49-14 on the road Thursday.

    The Hawks (3-0) scored two times in the game’s first 90 seconds and built a 21-0 lead less than eight minutes into the contest.

    Senior Bryson Cobb, junior Anthony Adkins and LaRue County’s offensive line paved the way to the Hawks’ first 3-0 start since 2002, as the running backs combined for 270 yards and three touchdowns.

  • 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.
