  • 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.

  • STRAIGHT ARROW: Changing back to...

    After getting home from my muskox hunt in the Arctic, I wanted to use the same arrow/broadhead combination to see how it would perform on whitetail deer.

    Well, since getting home I have only gotten to hunt five times, but on Sept. 23 I had an opportunity to harvest a doe, and my Gold Tip Kinetic Kaos arrow tipped with the 100 grain G5 Montec broadhead worked perfectly, and there is venison in the freezer.
