  • FOOTBALL: Rogers’ monster day...

    With Thomas Nelson’s defense keying on Bardstown’s senior playmakers in the offense, the Tigers had to dip into their well of youthful talent to hold off a Generals team eyeing their first-ever win in the series.

    Bardstown found an emerging star in Elijah Rogers, who had two long first-half touchdown catches during a 201-yard receiving night, and the sophomore came up big late with three first-down conversions in the final four minutes to help the Tigers kill the clock and escape with a 20-14 win Friday.

  • PREP SPORTS ROUNDUP: Banshees...

    Thomas Nelson has struggled much of the season with graduation losses and injuries, but for a time in Thursday’s girls’ soccer match at No. 13 Bethlehem, the Generals actually had the early advantage.

    Rachel Rosario’s goal gave the Generals a 1-0 lead just four minutes into the match, but the host Banshees had too much firepower in an 8-2 win.

    Abigail Proctor answered about two minutes after Rosario with the first of her two goals, and the Bethlehem junior also had two assists in the win.

  • FOOTBALL: Chargers too much for...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON — It was a beautiful homecoming evening.

    But when Kenneth Thornsberry returned to Mike Egan Field on the Bullitt East campus, the former Charger assistant coach didn’t get a warm homecoming welcome.

    Bullitt East enjoyed the homecoming festivities with a 65-12 victory over Thornsberry’s Nelson County Cardinals.

    Thornsberry said it’s always emotional for him against his alma mater.

    “To me, the biggest thing is those are kids I coached before,” he said of the Charger players.

  • GOLF: News and notes

    How about playing 100 holes of golf in one day?
    That’s what Maywood assistant professional Zach Graves will be doing Oct. 2.
    He’s not lost his mind.
    Instead, he will be joining other PGA pros who will be doing the same thing across the country as they raise money for their favorite charities.
    Graves’ charity is Special Olympics.
    Those wanting to donate can pledge any amount of money per hole. If you’re interested, you can contact Graves by calling Maywood (502) 348-6600.
