    North Hardin sophomore Marcus Terrell knew he was in trouble when he looked ahead and saw South Oldham senior Caleb Chappell pulling away from him on every uphill climb Saturday morning.

    Pillow rushed for 178 yards and four touchdowns, while Central Hardin’s defense recovered three fumbles and scored on an interception return in the visiting Bruins’ 56-27 rout of Louisville Western.

  • FOOTBALL FRIDAY UPDATE: North...

    All that extra emphasis on special teams and offensive work paid huge dividends for coach Crad Jaggers and North Hardin’s football team Friday night.

    Hickman, who finished with three touchdowns, had a 70-yard punt return in the second quarter and added a 48-yard punt return in the third quarter to give North Hardin a 63-6 lead.

    Wales, considered a prime contender for Mr. Football, scored on runs of 74, 63, 39, 58, 45 and 17 yards. With 2:46 still remaining in the first quarter, Wales had already run for 255 yards and four touchdowns on just six carries.

    BARDSTOWN — The Meade County Green Wave busted out of their four-game slide by running all over the host Nelson County Cardinals on Friday night.

  • FOOTBALL FRIDAY UPDATE: John...

    LOUISVILLE — The John Hardin Bulldogs lost the time of possession battle, but they won where it counted the most – on the scoreboard.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: 2-Minute Drill (...

    The North Hardin Trojans had a chance to put themselves in the driver’s seat in the district and set up a showdown with rival John Hardin next week. But the loss to Jeffersontown puts the Trojans in a difficult position.

    North Hardin has lost its last nine road playoff games, which is why the loss to Jeffersontown was so damaging.
