    After eight straight games under Murphy’s Law – what can go wrong will go wrong – Travis Richardson and the slumping Elizabethtown Panthers finally had something go right Tuesday.

    Richardson had one assist and two goals, including the game winner in the final 4 minutes, as the All-State junior striker helped the visiting Panthers finally hold off the LaRue County Hawks, 4-3 in the area rivals’ inaugural meeting.

    The John Hardin Bulldogs aren’t getting too caught up in records this week. The Boyle County Rebels are off to a 1-2 start, but the Bulldogs realize how good the Rebels are.

    Boyle County’s loaded schedule can be attributed to the slow start. The Rebels lost to Fort Thomas Highlands and Danville. Highlands is ranked No. 1 in the latest Associated Press Class 4-A poll, while Danville is fourth in 2-A.

    With two players injured, Bart Catlett gave senior Shayla Averitt her chance in the middle.

    She didn’t make the first-year Elizabethtown coach regret it.

    Nothing energizes Brittany Stokan more than a powerful block.

    But when Stokan stuffs an opposing front-row player, a whole new energy level kicks in.

  • COLLEGE FOOTBALL: Wallace, King...

    Two former area high school football stars combined to score 11 of the final 18 points in Sunday’s Kentucky-Louisville game. The host Cardinals defeated the Wildcats, 32-14.

    Louisville redshirt freshman kicker John Wallace, an ex-Central Hardin standout, was 3-of-3 on extra points. He capped off an 11-play, 71-yard scoring drive with a 22-yard field goal with 8:19 left in the third quarter to give Louisville (1-0) a 25-7 lead.

    Wallace also averaged 65 yards on his three kickoffs, forcing the Wildcats (0-1) to take two touchbacks.


    Russ Mott started the game on fire offensively, but ended it on the bench because of yellow cards. It was of no matter, really, as Darwin Perez picked up where the former John Hardin High School star left off.

    Mott scored his team’s first two goals Saturday morning, while Perez assisted on the second before the ex-LaRue County Hawk scored the game winner himself as the Elizabethtown Community & Technical College men’s soccer team rallied for its first win in school history by knocking off the host Campbellsville University reserves, 3-2.
