  • Generals’ season ends with road loss at Taylor County

    CAMPBELLSVILLE — It took Thomas Nelson a longer than usual amount of time to get to Taylor County on Friday as they came upon an accident, got stuck behind a farm combine, and encountered heavier than normal traffic.

    However, it didn’t take much time for the homestanding Cardinals to score as freshman running back Trey Goodin went 75 yards on the opening play of the game and the floodgates were open for Taylor County as they ended the Generals’ season on a sour note, 52-13.
