  • PREP FOOTBALL: Knox not...

    After watching his team stun the visiting Elizabethtown Panthers in the season opener last year, Fort Knox coach Shawn Thompson couldn’t help but think the Panthers might’ve overlooked his Eagles.

    Fort Knox won the game, 41-21 for Thompson’s first win on post – and the first of 11 straight losses for the Panthers, who went winless in 2011.


    Junior midfielder Alexis Lopez scored twice and had two assists Monday to lead the host North Hardin Lady Trojans to a 6-1 season-opening win over first-year program Breckinridge County.

    Senior keeper Ariana Martinez made two saves.
