  • PREP FOOTBALL: Elizabethtown preps for Evans, unbeaten Mustangs (09/08)

    For the record, the name of the North Oldham Mustangs’ star running back is Zach Evans, not Bob. But unless the Elizabethtown Panthers finally figure out a way to stop the run, Elizabethtown’s Doug Smith Memorial Stadium might as well be Evans’ big red farmhouse when the increasingly familiar rivals clash again at 7:30 p.m. Friday.

    Evans, a senior halfback, is coming off a 158-yard, two-touchdown effort in last week’s 43-14 thrashing of visiting Christian Academy-Louisville to up his season totals to 334 yards and six touchdowns on just 34 carries.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Bruins get 'first test' of season (9/8)

    The Central Hardin Bruins realize what’s at stake this week. The Bruins are off to a 2-0 start, posting impressive wins over inferior teams – or at least Central Hardin made those teams look that way.

    But Friday night, the Bruins play at Louisville Butler (1-1). It’s Central Hardin’s first game against a Class 6-A opponent this season and the eighth-ranked Bruins understand this game will be used as a measuring stick to see if they’re as good as their ranking and record say.

  • OPINION: Locals live out MLB dreams (9/8)

    Last year at this time, Hardin County didn’t have a single player in Major League Baseball. And it looked like it might be some time before that changed.

    Nathan Adcock was just finishing a season in high Class-A with the Bradenton Marauders, a Pittsburgh Pirates affiliate. Stevie Delabar was out of baseball after another serious arm injury.

    UP NEXT: North Hardin plays at Louisville Holy Cross at 6 p.m. today.

  • GIRLS' PREP SOCCER: Lady Bruins breeze past Lady Waves, 10-0 (09/08)

    Lauren Norton received the perfectly placed pass from senior teammate Sam Donahue and turned up field.

    After getting past two Meade County defenders, Norton was in the clear. Meade County keeper Jessica Duncan came out of the net to try and make a play on the ball, but she was too late.

    Norton juked Duncan and easily guided the ball into the back of the net. It was that kind of night Wednesday for Central Hardin.

  • GIRLS' PREP SOCCER: No upset this time as Elizabethtown rolls past John Hardin (09/08)

    In the first half Wednesday night, the John Hardin Lady Bulldogs had no shot – figuratively and quite literally – of once again shocking the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers.

    Once John Hardin finally got a ball in the vicinity of Elizabethtown’s goal, Tara Gilpin, Lexy Hazle and the rest of the third-ranked Lady Panthers had already pulled away.

    Gilpin scored three times in the final 47 minutes, Hazle was involved in three goals as well and the visiting Lady Panthers cruised to a 7-0 win over their 10th District rival.
