    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.


    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.

    Junior keeper Alex Fackler made three saves in the first half, while senior Alex Poe made two in the second.

    Mixing basketball and shrimp has been a good recipe for success for Sonora’s Charlie Thurman. Now he’s going to find out if throwing football into the mix spoils the stew.

    Thurman, who has hosted many area and state basketball legends for nights of reminiscing over Cajun shrimp boils at Claudia’s Tea Room, is hosting his first football legends night Thursday.

    “We already have a full house. We’re up to capacity,” Thurman said Sunday night. “We’ve had a huge response. We’re up over 60 people now.”
