  • PREP SOCCER ROUNDUP: No. 2...

    Seniors Tara Gilpin and Samantha Matherly each scored to lift the second-ranked Elizabethtown Lady Panthers to a 2-0 win over No. 11 West Jessamine on Saturday.

    Junior Lexy Hazle had an assist for visiting Elizabethtown (8-1), which outshot the Lady Colts, 11-4.

    “It was a well-played match,” said Elizabethtown coach Jerry Crabtree. “We possessed the ball well.”

    Keepers Audrey Duke and Madison Smith combined for two saves.

    UP NEXT: Elizabethtown plays at John Hardin at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: John Hardin'...

    John Hardin junior Wade Holtsclaw will miss five to six weeks after sustaining an ankle injury Friday night against Meade County.

    Holtsclaw suffered a fracture about 2 inches above his left ankle. The reigning Defensive Sophomore of the Year and All-Area first-team defensive back left with 2:14 left in the first quarter after making a tackle and did not return.

    “It’s pretty frustrating,” Holtsclaw said Saturday afternoon. “This is a pretty big season for me.”

  • FOOTBALL FRIDAY UPDATE: Central...

    Senior Jared Cromartie scored on a 51-yard pass two plays into the game and the Central Hardin Bruins continued to pour it on Friday in a 53-6 pasting of the winless Elizabethtown Panthers.

  • FOOTBALL FRIDAY UPDATE: John...

    The John Hardin Bulldogs beefed up the schedule this season, but one thing hasn’t changed – they continue to churn out wins.

    The Bulldogs, ranked second in Class 5-A, remained undefeated as they cruised past the Meade County Green Wave, 38-0 on Friday night at Bulldog Stadium.

    John Hardin’s defense put the clamps on Meade County, which came into the game averaging 39 points a game. The Green Wave mustered only 125 yards of total offense. Senior quarterback Thomas Wilson was held to 37 yards rushing and 19 yards passing.

  • FOOTBALL FRIDAY UPDATE: Butler...

    The short-handed Fort Knox Eagles nearly pulled off one big comeback at home Friday night.

    Down 16 in the third quarter to the Butler County Bears, the Eagles rallied to cut their deficit to two in the fourth behind the passing of junior Brandon Franklin and running of senior Dominic Dingle.

    Fort Knox, however, came up just short in its quest for a come-from-behind victory as it fell, 42-34.

  • FOOTBALL FRIDAY UPDATE: Spencer...

    LaRue County coach Rodney Armes deemed it probably the most embarrassing loss of his 16-year career.

    The Hawks’ special teams’ mental and coaching mistakes cost them and left the team reeling Friday night.

    Host Spencer County scored two touchdowns off LaRue County special teams’ mistakes and stopped senior halfback Drew Newberry’s conversion run attempt with 3:58 left to hang on for a 21-20 victory.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Meade County...

    Unlike a passing team like the Elizabethtown Panthers or run-oriented squads such as the North Hardin Trojans and the LaRue County Hawks, the John Hardin Bulldogs are a hard team to label stylistically.

  • YOUTH SPORTS: Four honored with...

    Beth Pyles has long believed that spots in the Elizabethtown Area Youth Football league’s Hall of Fame should be reserved for those people who have given to the league, be it as a coach or commission member.

    Pyles hasn’t served in either capacity since she and her husband Mike became involved with the program 15 years ago, but that didn’t matter to those selecting this year’s hall of fame honorees.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: 2-MINUTE DRILL

    Rivalry games are always difficult to predict. Coaches always say the same clichés, like records can be thrown out the window or we can’t look past these guys. Something along those lines.

    When Elizabethtown travels to Central Hardin, it will be the 22nd meeting between the schools. The rivalry has been close with Central Hardin holding a 12-9 lead in the series.
