  • FOOTBALL FRIDAY UPDATE:...

    LOUISVILLE The Central Hardin Bruins weren’t prepared for what hit them Friday night.

    While the Bruins kept Louisville Butler star receiver Kiante Northington out of the end zone, they couldn’t contain Butler senior fullback Alonzo Brock.

    Brock scored five touchdowns and rushed for 101 yards on 13 carries to help lead the host Bears to a 42-21 win over Central Hardin.

    Northington did catch eight passes for a game-high 93 yards, but the Bruins (2-1) kept the prolific receiver from scoring.

  • FOOTBALL FRIDAY UPDATE: John...

    The John Hardin Bulldogs did something Friday night that hadn’t been done for 14 years.

    The Bulldogs shut out the Boyle County Rebels, 28-0 at Bulldog Stadium in a clash of highly ranked teams. It was the first time Boyle County had not scored in a game since Nov. 14, 1997, when Bourbon County won, 24-0 in the second round of the Class 2-A playoffs.

    John Hardin, which is ranked second in Class 5-A, remained undefeated, improving to 4-0, while Boyle County, which is ranked second in 4-A, dropped to 2-2.

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

    Hardin County has been home to some good football games, but tonight’s showdown between John Hardin and Boyle County might be the biggest regular-season game this area has seen. At least in a long time.

    Look at the numbers. John Hardin is ranked second in Class 5-A. Boyle County is ranked second in 4-A. Not to mention Boyle County has won five state championships since 2001, including back-to-back 4-A titles.

  • GOLF: ECC to host benefit for...

    Elizabethtown Country Club PGA professional and general manager Gary Manes wanted a special group to honor for its annual two-man tournament.

    After one of the club’s members was touched by some reading, the group found a charity that hit close to its hearts and the area’s home.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: John Hardin,...

    The John Hardin Bulldogs realize the importance of tonight’s game versus perennial power Boyle County. At the same time, in the grand scheme of things, it’s just another game on a 10-game regular season schedule.

    The Bulldogs, who host the Rebels tonight at 7:30, are approaching this game as the most important game because it’s the one at hand. But it’s hard not to have some extra motivation. The Rebels are ranked second in Class 4-A and have won five state championships in the last decade.

  • PREP SOCCER ROUNDUP: Both North...

    Junior Elijah Linscott and senior Darren Lewis each scored to lead the host North Hardin Trojans to a 2-0 win over Warren Central on Thursday.

    Sophomore Justin Musselman had the assist on Linscott’s goal in the first half.

    Junior keeper Tyler Malcolm made seven saves as North Hardin (7-2) outshot Warren Central, 15-8.

    UP NEXT: North Hardin plays Boone County at 10 a.m. and Campbell County at 4:30 p.m. Saturday in the John Hardin Bulldog Challenge.

    The Elizabethtown Lady Panthers won their second match in a row with a 25-22, 25-11 win over 17th District rival Fort Knox on Thursday.

    Junior Kate Hula led the Lady Panthers (12-2 overall, 4-1 district) with five kills and four aces, while junior Brittany Stokan had three kills and one ace.

    Sophomore Ashley Clement added two kills.

    No statistics were available for Fort Knox (1-9, 0-5), which lost its third straight.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: LaRue County...

    If a humbling loss at Spencer County last week was the frying pan for the LaRue County Hawks, then tonight’s road game with the Green County Dragons is definitely the fire for outgoing coach Rodney Armes.
