  • BOYS' SOCCER STATE...

    LEXINGTON — After using their feet to outpossess North Hardin in the first half, the Boone County Rebels used their heads to rally by the Trojans.

    Down a goal at intermission thanks to senior center midfielder Elijah Linscott, the 9th Region Tournament champion Rebels scored twice off headers in a 10-minute span in the second half to surge past the 5th Region champion Trojans, 2-1 in the KHSAA State Tournament quarterfinals Saturday at Henry Clay.

  • GIRLS' SOCCER STATE...

    LEXINGTON — In an impromptu decision, Dani Wilson, Emily Richardson, Lexy Hazle and a whole bunch of Elizabethtown girls decided to move their Halloween party Wednesday to Lexington.

    And wouldn’t you know it, they have matching costumes.

    Wilson found Richardson for the game’s only goal and Hazle kept the pressure on Louisville Assumption with her relentless runs and ball moves as the 10th-ranked Lady Panthers stunned the fourth-ranked Rockets, 1-0 in the state tournament quarterfinals Saturday at Lexington Lafayette.

  • FOOTBALL FRIDAY UPDATE: Glasgow...

    Fortunately for Elizabethtown Panthers fans, Doug Smith Memorial Stadium gave them better memories than Friday night’s final game on the 56-year-old field.

    Elizabethtown came out and punched Glasgow in the face, but the visiting Scotties responded by pummeling the Panthers pretty much everywhere else as Glasgow rolled to a 47-6 win in both teams’ regular-season finales.

  • FOOTBALL FRIDAY UPDATE:...

    Campbellsville rushed for five touchdowns and its eight-men-in-the-box defense stymied Fort Knox in a 37-0 victory, handing the Eagles their eighth straight loss in their season finale.

    Leading just 8-0 at the half, Campbellsville rushed for 100 yards in the second half and scored two touchdowns in each of the final two quarters. Fort Knox couldn’t move the football much at all, managing 53 yards in the first half and 44 in the second.

    Fort Knox (1-9) finished its season without scoring in its final two games and suffered its fourth shutout.

  • FOOTBALL FRIDAY UPDATE: John...

    FLORENCE – The deck appeared stacked against the John Hardin Bulldogs on Friday night. It was a cold night and the non-stop rain was moderate to heavy, making the field a soggy mess. Not the ideal conditions for John Hardin’s attack, but suitable for Boone County’s power ground game.

  • FOOTBALL FRIDAY UPDATE: LaRue...

    Five weeks ago, the LaRue County Hawks were 2-4 following a loss to Warren East. They had lost three straight and things weren’t looking so great for the boys from Hodgenville.

    After Friday night’s 49-7 dismantling of the visiting Washington County Commanders, the Hawks are riding a wave of momentum into the Class 3-A playoffs.

    They’ve reeled off three wins in their last four games to finish the regular season 5-5, a mark that didn’t appear attainable after Warren East won, 38-7 on Sept. 21.

  • KHSAA VOLLEYBALL STATE...

    LOUISVILLE North Oldham took away the heart of Central Hardin’s offensive attack.

  • KHSAA GIRLS' SOCCER STATE...

    Lexy Hazle didn’t get off to the best start this season and it left the Elizabethtown High School senior striker fuming. With the Lady Panthers graduating three NCAA Division-I signees and several other veteran starters, opponents started focusing on defending Hazle a lot more.

  • BOYS' SOCCER STATE...

    Taylor Yates was moved to striker shortly after the junior scored North Hardin’s game-winning goal with 14 seconds left in the Trojans’ 2-1 win Sept. 7 against the Boone County Rebels in the John Hardin Bulldog Challenge.

    What a coincidence.

    The team responsible for his late-season swoon gets to try to handle him again as the 9th Region Tournament champion Rebels (19-3-3) take on the 5th Region champion Trojans (19-6) at 1 p.m. Saturday in the state tournament quarterfinals at Lexington Henry Clay.

  • KHSAA STATE VOLLEYBALL...

    Afton Conner turns gleamy-eyed when describing her emotions about the Central Hardin Lady Bruins’ third straight KHSAA state tournament trip.

    There’s so much history this time around.
