  • FOOTBALL: Tigers whack Generals

    After smashing up against the lines of a pair of top-five teams the past two weeks, Bardstown found Thomas Nelson to be a bit of a walk in the park as the Tigers forced five turnovers and routed the Generals, 47-0.

    The first fumble came on Thomas Nelson’s first play from scrimmage, setting Bardstown up with a short field that turned into an Austin Mason touchdown a couple of plays later. That gave the Tigers an 8-0 lead, and developing a theme that held throughout a first quarter that left the Generals dazed and confused at the bottom of a 34-0 hole.

  • HIGH SCHOOL ROUNDUP: Nelson Cards top Tigers on pitch

    Nelson County, the top seed in the 19th District boys’ soccer tournament, carries a five-match win streak into the postseason following a 4-2 win at Bardstown Thursday.

    The Cardinals (13-4) seized control by going up 2-1 on a pair of goals by Tyler Tipton and Joey Muncy in the first half. Quinton Lyvers’ goal on a PK with about a minute left before halftime proved the dagger as Nelson County beat Bardstown — the No. 2 seed in the tournament — for the second time this season.

  • FOOTBALL: Eagles roll Colonels in the mud

    HORSE CAVE — Bethlehem bounced back from a two-game skid in a big way in its district opener Friday, pulling away from Caverna in the second half for a 42-20 win.

    “That was a big win for us,” Eagles coach Ron Koontz said. “The kids came out in the second half and played one heck of a game.”

    Bethlehem built a 14-6 lead after first-quarter touchdowns by Jake Yates and Caleb Bird, but the skies opened and neither team could get anything done in the second quarter, with the score remaining the same at halftime.

  • FOOTBALL: Nelson County’s Berry shreds Valley

    Mired in a six-game losing streak, Nelson County hasn’t had a lot to cheer about lately. Charlie Berry’s spectacular Senior Night changed all that in a hurry.

    The Cardinals’ running back laid waste to the Valley Friday, torching the Vikings for 305 yards and six touchdowns in a 61-22 rout.

    “It was a great night,” Berry said. “The linemen did an amazing job blocking for me.”

    Bethlehem sealed up the top seed in the 19th District tournament last week, and on Monday wrapped up an undefeated tear through the district with a straight-set win over Bardstown.

    In going 8-0 against their district rivals, the Banshees dropped just three sets along the way, all to Nelson County. Bethlehem dispatched Bardstown — a possible opponent in the 19th District semifinals (see below) — by a 25-9, 25-19, 25-23 score.
