  • FOOTBALL: Eagles have no answers for No. 2 Bearcats

    Bethlehem was no match for the run game of Class 1A No. 2 Kentucky Country Day, who rushed their way to a 47-0 victory over the Eagles Friday night at Lally Field.

    The Bearcats used superior size and speed to have their way with the Eagles’ defense all night.

    Coach Jesse Cantrall thought that, despite the score, his team played better than they did in their previous game.

  • FOOTBALL: Top-5 E’town’s firepower too much for TNHS

    ELIZABETHTOWN — A third-quarter touchdown prevented a shutout, but the Thomas Nelson Generals had few other positives exiting their 42-7 loss at Elizabethtown on Friday.

    The Panthers had 465 yards compared to 164 from the Generals and scored touchdowns on three of their first five plays.

    Elizabethtown (3-1) entered the game ranked No. 5 in Class 3A and showed it deserves the accolades.

  • FOOTBALL: Cards can’t keep pace with Colts

    NICHOLASVILLE — With his team riding the school’s first three-game winning streak since 2010, West Jessamine coach John Gilliam wanted his team to take command early against a winless Nelson County team on Friday.

    The homestanding Colts (4-1) did just that, scoring on their first play from scrimmage on a 52-yard touchdown run by senior quarterback Jacob Humes en route to a 41-19 win over the Cardinals.

    West Jessamine went on to score on three of their next four possessions to build their advantage to 27-0.
