    One game decides this year’s Class 6-A, District 2 champion.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: North looks to...

    The North Hardin Trojans like to play an up-tempo offense. Call it fast-break football or a hurry-up offense. It has worked for the pass-happy Trojans, who are putting up some staggering numbers.

    But first-year coach Brent Thompson plans on pumping the brakes on the high-powered attack against the John Hardin Bulldogs. Thompson figures the best defense against the Bulldogs is to keep his offense on the field.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Panthers not sure...

    The not-so biggest secret is finally out: Josh Williams will be in action Friday night when the Elizabethtown Panthers take on Class 3-A, District 3 rival LaRue County in Hodgenville.

    With the Panthers driving inside the 5-yard line in the first quarter, the senior suffered a high ankle sprain when his left foot was inadvertently stepped on by a Louisville Central player.

  • PREP SOCCER ROUNDUP: Green Wave...

    For the first 78 minutes Wednesday night, the Meade County Green Wave struggled trying to crack Grayson County’s defense.

    Chance after chance went by, and the Green Wave couldn’t get anything going against the host Cougars in the Boys’ 11th District Soccer Tournament.

    Senior defender Justin Mosier came through in the final 2 minutes. Mosier took a corner from senior midfielder Chase Long and buried his shot as the Green Wave beat Grayson County, 1-0.

  • GIRLS' PREP SOCCER: Ennis,...

    Haley Ennis put Central Hardin ahead of John Hardin early again. Rachel Mobley, meanwhile, used her head to give the Lady Bruins some insurance.

    Ennis finished off a pass from fellow senior Olivia Thompson less than 3 minutes into the Girls’ 17th District Soccer Tournament’s late semifinal Wednesday, while Mobley headed in a right-side cross from fellow sophomore Jessi Bunch to all but bury the third-seed John Hardin Lady Bulldogs as the second-seeded Lady Bruins earned a 2-0 win at Troy Wade Field in Radcliff.

  • GIRLS' PREP SOCCER: Hazle,...

    Playing in one of her coldest games of her senior season, Lexy Hazle didn’t take long to warm up Wednesday evening for the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers.

    A Miss Soccer candidate, Hazle was involved in all four of her team’s goals in the first half as the top-seeded Lady Panthers cruised by the fourth-seeded North Hardin Lady Trojans, 8-0 in the Girls’ 17th District Soccer Tournament’s early semifinal at Troy Wade Field in Radcliff.

  • PREP VOLLEYBALL: Three and...

    The Lady Bruins have faced Elizabethtown in the district title match every year since 2003, but never have they dispatched the Lady Panthers like this.

  • PREP VOLLEYBALL: Central cruises...

    Central Hardin needed nearly half a set Tuesday before it got its motor running in the 17th District Volleyball Tournament semifinals at Elizabethtown.

    The two-time defending champion Lady Bruins had to adjust to a different slow down tempo than from the last week of the regular season.

  • PREP VOLLEYBALL: Breckinridge...

    BRANDENBURG — After dropping two five-set matches to Meade County in the regular season, the second-seeded Breckinridge County Lady Tigers finally got some revenge against the top-seeded Lady Waves, beating the tournament host 3-1  (25-18, 19-25, 25-19, 25-19) in the 11th District Volleyball Tournament final.

    Statistics were not available.

    Both Breckinridge County (19-9) and Meade County (16-10) advance to next week’s 3rd Region Volleyball Tournament at Daviess County.
