  • 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.

  • BOYS' PREP SOCCER: Central...

    After being anything but offensive their previous two games, the Central Hardin Bruins could have spent the week before their next outing focusing on finishing.

    Their scoring woes looked like they could continue at home Thursday night, but once the 21st-ranked Bruins got back on track against the Elizabethtown Panthers, not much could derail them.

    The Bruins broke away from a deadlocked game late in the first half with a flurry of goals and emerged with a rousing 7-2 win in a rematch of last year’s 10th District and 5th Region tournament finals.

  • PREP VOLLEYBALL: Lady Bruins...

    Three weeks ago, John Hardin gave Central Hardin’s volleyball team a scare in the opening set.

    This time, the Lady Bruins put the Lady Bulldogs down without much of a whimper.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Elizabethtown...

    For the record, the name of the North Oldham Mustangs’ star running back is Zach Evans, not Bob. But unless the Elizabethtown Panthers finally figure out a way to stop the run, Elizabethtown’s Doug Smith Memorial Stadium might as well be Evans’ big red farmhouse when the increasingly familiar rivals clash again at 7:30 p.m. Friday.

    Evans, a senior halfback, is coming off a 158-yard, two-touchdown effort in last week’s 43-14 thrashing of visiting Christian Academy-Louisville to up his season totals to 334 yards and six touchdowns on just 34 carries.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Bruins get '...

    The Central Hardin Bruins realize what’s at stake this week. The Bruins are off to a 2-0 start, posting impressive wins over inferior teams – or at least Central Hardin made those teams look that way.

    But Friday night, the Bruins play at Louisville Butler (1-1). It’s Central Hardin’s first game against a Class 6-A opponent this season and the eighth-ranked Bruins understand this game will be used as a measuring stick to see if they’re as good as their ranking and record say.

  • OPINION: Locals live out MLB...

    Last year at this time, Hardin County didn’t have a single player in Major League Baseball. And it looked like it might be some time before that changed.

    Nathan Adcock was just finishing a season in high Class-A with the Bradenton Marauders, a Pittsburgh Pirates affiliate. Stevie Delabar was out of baseball after another serious arm injury.

  • PREP SOCCER ROUNDUP: Bowling...

    Visiting Bowling Green recorded its seventh shutout this season in a 7-0 win over the North Hardin Lady Trojans on Wednesday.

    The Lady Purples (10-1) have recorded three shutouts in their last four games, while the Lady Trojans (1-7-1) lost their sixth straight.

    No statistics were available.

    UP NEXT: North Hardin plays at Louisville Holy Cross at 6 p.m. today.

  • GIRLS' PREP SOCCER: Lady...

    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.

  • GIRLS' PREP SOCCER: No...

    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.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Trojans need to...

    North Hardin linebacker Antonio Jackson is a little miffed.

    Two games into the season and the Trojans’ first two opponents have put up more than 60 combined points.
