PREP SPORTS ROUNDUP: Eagles get walkoff win in 9th

The first two games of Bethlehem’s and Bardstown’s three-game district series have been thrillers. It’s too bad the next time the teams play after this week would be in the 19th District tournament.

With a pair of late come-from-behind victories, the Eagles have established themselves as the early front-runners in the 19th District standings, improving to 5-0 in district games following Tuesday’s 5-4 win in nine innings over the Tigers. Thursday’s Game 3 was after press time for this edition.
