  • Cards knock out Eagles with late...

    Nelson County sprinted out to a big lead and then weathered a Bethlehem comeback in the second half to advance to the 19th District championship game and reserve a spot in the 5th Region tournament with a 60-47 win Wednesday. Nelson County built a double-digit lead that the Eagles (8-21) whittled to five late in the fourth quarter before the Cards pulled out the victory. “I give our kids credit for withstanding the run and making the plays when they had to make them,” Nelson County coach Minor Harmon said.

  • Drake leads Cardinals past...

    Samantha Drake piled up 28 points and 12 rebounds Tuesday to lead Nelson County past Bethlehem with a 50-30 win and into the 19th District championship, as well as punching the Cardinals’ ticket for next week’s 5th Region tournament.What looked like a close game early on turned into a rout by Nelson County. The Cardinals led 14-8 after one quarter as Bethlehem managed to control Drake and work the ball inside for some easy early buckets to keep it close.

  • Tigers roll big

    Time was definitely on Bardstown’s side Tuesday as the Tigers held Washington County scoreless for nearly 14 minutes in the first half on the way to a dominating 54-22 win in the 19th District semifinals.“We told them tonight was about taking care of business, especially on defense,” Bardstown coach Paul Stone said.

  • Nelson boys limp into postseason

    Nelson County’s boys skidded into the postseason on a three-game losing streak, having dropped a pair of 12-point losses last week at Taylor County and Campbellsville.

    “Our inconsistent play continues,” Cardinal coach Minor Harmon said. “It’s disappointing going into the district with the inconsistent play we’ve had the last three ballgames.”

  • Bethlehem falls on buzzer-beater

    Bethlehem played tough and close all night long, withstanding everything Holy Cross threw at them. But the Eagles could not stop lady luck, which took the form of a Matt Hill 25-footer at the end of overtime, handing Bethlehem a heart-breaking 63-60 loss in its regular-season finale.

    “We knew coming in it would be tough,” Bethlehem coach Mike Ayersman said. “I challenged the kids and they really stepped up and did a good job and really put themselves in a good situation to win the game.”

  • Holy Cross' big second half...

    It started out well for the Banshees as they came out in the first quarter playing solid basketball and taking a 15-9 lead over the Cougars. From there it was all downhill, and the Banshees struggled with the Holy Cross press, eventually falling 51-40.

    “I thought we had trouble, obviously, scoring in the second quarter,” Bethlehem coach Terry Janes said. “I think a combination of turnovers and not converting, not executing on offense.”

  • Girls' district starts...
