  • Bardstown blasts Marion

    Bardstown won its fourth straight to open the season taking out Marion County on Friday night. The Tigers used a big second quarter on their way to a 95-63 win over the Knights.

    “We did not get off to a good start,” Bardstown coach Gary Goode said. “They play an unusual style. As the game went on our players did a good job of recognizing what we needed to do and we got some easy buckets.”

  • Cards suffer first loss

    Despite 20-point efforts from two players, the Cardinals suffered their first loss of the season Friday at Munfordville, 63-61 to Hart County.

    For the host Eagles, Megan Isaacs poured in 29 as Hart County improved to 5-0.

    “She got to the foul line on us and hit 16-of-17,” Cardinal coach Kelly Wood said. “We just couldn’t stop her penetration.”

  • Poor second-half shooting dooms...

    Central Hardin hassled Nelson County into frosty shooting and poor ballhandling Thursday, as the Bruins iced the Cardinals 60-50.

    The Bruins (4-1) slapped an aggressive 1-3-1 halfcourt trap on the Cardinals, forcing into a frustrating 28 percent shooting night.

    “Some nights there’s a lid on it, some nights they go,” Nelson coach Minor Harmon said.

    Nelson County (2-3) led 16-14 after the first quarter, and went into the locker room down 34-33 at halftime.

  • Bardstown gets past Southern in...

    LOUISVILLE - Bardstown improved to 2-0 on the season with a 78-70 overtime win Saturday over Southern in the Derby City Classic showcase at Christian Academy of Louisville.

    The Tigers were up seven at halftime, but the Trojans (1-3) stormed back and had a two-point lead with nine seconds to go. But Bardstown’s Kebbie Scott drove the lane and found fellow senior Logan Edelen for a 10-footer from the baseline to put it into overtime. It was Edelen’s only bucket of the game.

    From there, the Tigers pulled away, outscoring the Trojans 12-4 in the extra frame.

    Finding a Christmas gift for an outdoors person is easy. And, some of the best gifts aren’t expensive.

    I’m a Christmas junkie. I love the music, the spirit, the family get-togethers, Christmas church services, and late-season hunting. I also love all the holiday good things to eat. And as much as I dislike shopping, finding a gift for an outdoors person is fun.

    Here is the first of a two-part column with some gift ideas ranging from a bit expensive to free, or nearly free:

  • Stanley strong, but Cards turn...

    Nelson County’s 11 seniors showed the value of veteran savvy Friday, using patience and discipline on offense and defense to steadily pull away from visiting Bethlehem, 54-38.

    Cardinal coach Minor Harmon said his club will need to recreate that discipline and work ethic throughout the season.

    “That’s going to be key for us,” he said.

    The win moved Nelson County to 2-1 on the season and 1-0 in district play. Bethlehem dropped its third straight following a season-opening win over Hart County, and is 0-1 in district play.

  • Nelson defense keys district win

    Nelson County picked Bethlehem’s pocket a staggering 28 times Friday in posting a 48-29 home district win.

    “Nelson’s a great defensive team,” Bethlehem coach Terry Janes said. “We just weren’t consistent handling the ball.”

    The Cardinals improved to 4-0 with the win, 1-0 in district play. Bethlehem is still searching for its first win in three tries, and is 0-2 in district play.

    “Every time you play a district game ee it’s a battle of wills,” Cardinal coach Kelly Wood said.
