  • 19th DISTRICT GIRLS' SOCCER...

    Jacey Welther experienced four straight district championship matches with Bardstown between 2010-13. Her sister, Lexie, hasn’t been as fortunate, being frozen out of the title game as well as the 5th Region tournament each of her first three varsity years.

    The younger sibling was concerned she and her fellow seniors would never get the chance, especially with upstart Thomas Nelson dueling Bardstown into overtime in a scoreless tie after Welther’s point-blank shot was stopped by the Generals’ Izzy Whitis with just a minute left in regulation.

    The No. 1 seed Bethlehem Banshees were able to net four goals in the first half and then control the ball in the second half to defeat host No. 4 seed Nelson County 5-1 in Monday’s 19th District girls’ soccer semifinals.

    Junior Abigail Proctor was responsible for the first two goals in the first seven minutes of the match, both off assists from classmate Madie Sparks. Proctor finished with three goals, and Sparks also scored in the contest.

  • FOOTBALL: Injuries hamper...

    Already hamstrung by a thin roster, Nelson County’s chances of snapping a long losing streak got more complicated Friday against North Bullitt as a handful of key starters were sidelined with injuries.

    “We were missing some guys up front,” Cardinals coach Kenneth Thornsberry said. “That led to struggles to get some momentum early.”

  • FOOTBALL: Banged-up Tigers can’t...

    When star running back Jeremiah Odom went down with an injury during Thursday’s practice, Bardstown coach David Clark had to toss his team’s offensive game plan for visiting Henry County out the window.

    His revamped offense performed quite well on Friday, scoring 31 points, but it still wasn’t enough as the Tigers fell 40-31 on Senior Night.

    Henry County took advantage of its superior size and the punishing running attack led by quarterback Tyler Raisor and running back Nick Riggins.

    Bethlehem was able to get its district slate started on a high note with a 42-8 rout of Caverna on Friday night.

    After suffering through a stretch of three straight games against ranked opponents, the Eagles finally had the majority of their team healthy, and were able to use a large part of the game to get some of their young guys some playing time as Bethlehem was able to build a 36-0 lead before the end of the first quarter.
