  • Tourney anglers catch big cats,...

    Daytime temperatures have remained above normal, but cool nights have begun to drop water temperatures and heat up fishing action.

    Catfish are feeding for the winter months, and crappie action should pick up soon.

    Big cats were taken in an Ohio River tournament recently, and impressive crappie were taken in the Cabelas Crappie USA Classic at Patoka Lake.

  • Bulldogs end Cardinals' run

    RADCLIFF — Alex Shearer understands how dangerous an underdog team can be when it gets confidence early.

    That’s why Grant Zigos and the rest of Shearer’s John Hardin Bulldogs made sure it would be hard for Nelson County to build up any confidence Tuesday.

    A junior forward, Zigos scored the first of his two goals less than four minutes into the match as the Bulldogs eased by the Cardinals, 3-1 in the boys’ 5th Region soccer semifinals.

  • Cards top Commanders to win...

    In the schools’ two previous meetings this season, Nelson County needed a third game to put away Washington County before prevailing. In Tuesday’s district championship match, it looked like things would follow according to form when Washington County stormed back from a 23-18 deficit in the second game to gain a game point at 24-23.

    This time, however, the Cardinals avoided an extra game by rattling off three straight points to take the game and their second consecutive district title in a 25-19, 26-24 win over the Commanders.

  • Eagles Fall to Washington County

    The Washington County Commanders jumped out to an early lead over the Bethlehem Eagles and made it stand up on their way to a 40-20 win Friday night. Before the Eagles could get anything going they were down 20-0 to the Commanders and playing catch up the rest of the night.

    Washington County quickly jumped out to a 7-0 lead when it scored on it third play from scrimmage. A turnover on the Eagles first possession set the Commanders up at the Eagles 40 yard line and they took advantage, driving for their second touchdown of the night to make it 14-0 early.

  • Nelson upends Central Hardin

    Nelson County marched into tonight’s 5th Region championship by winning a physical battle with a strong Central Hardin team 1-0 Monday.

    “They elevated their play,” Nelson County assistant coach Julie Welther said. “They were ready and they came to play and they played.”

    Nelson County’s Whitney Hatfield got the eventual game-winning goal with a little more than 25 minutes remaining in regulation.

  • Eagles, Cards at home

    Nelson County and Bethlehem host non-district games in Friday’s football action, while Bardstown is on a bye week.

    Bethlehem (1-5) is in search of a win, and will have to contend with the pass-happy shotgun spread offense of Washington County (2-4) to get it.

    “They don’t have a lot of plays they run, but the plays they do run, they execute them well,” Bethlehem coach Stan Torzewski said.

    Triggering the Commander attack is quarterback Joe Joe Simms, who has thrown for 1,439 yards and 16 scores.

  • Region matches set for soccer,...

    Monday marks the beginning of 5th Region tournament play in volleyball and boys and girls soccer.

    The 5th Region volleyball draw was announced Thursday night, while pairings for the boys and girls soccer tournaments were set Friday morning.

    Central Hardin plays host to this year’s tournament, and 17th District champ Nelson County (24-8-2) got the toughest draw of any of the district champions. The Cardinals face the host Bruins in the second match of the evening Tuesday.

  • Eagles' woes continue

    Bethlehem again had trouble finding the end zone, falling 34-0 Friday to visiting Holy Cross.

    “We never really could get much on offense,” Eagle coach Stan Torzewski said. “We’ve got things to improve on.”

    Cougar quarterback Devin Brown was the biggest thorn in the Eagles’ side, throwing for a pair of scores and rushing for another.

    “He’s the real deal,” Torzewski said. “He’s solid.”

  • Tigers can't make big lead...

    Danville scored 28 unanswered points to finish the game Friday, coming from behind for a 40-26 win at Bardstown.

    “They were able to make big plays when they needed to, and we didn’t,” Bardstown coach David Clark said.

    Admirals coach Sam Harp said his team didn’t get down on itself as it had at some points this season.

    “Our kids kept battling back,” Harp said.

  • Greenwood gets revenge for last...

    BOWLING GREEN — Some past Greenwood teams would be home during the playoffs because they didn’t qualify for the postseason.

    These days, the Gators are home for the playoffs for more satisfying reasons.
