    According to their coach, the host Central Hardin Bruins got schooled Monday night.

    Third-ranked Louisville St. Xavier took a four-goal lead into halftime en route to a 5-0 win over the No. 17 Bruins.

    “We got an education,” said Central Hardin coach Mike Wiersema. “Their speed and their speed of play really caught us off guard. It took us a while to adjust. We adjusted after we were out of the game.”

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Meade pounds...

    Max Cundiff and his Meade County teammates had one glaring fact burned into their minds during practice last week: Entering Saturday, the Green Wave had not beaten the Greenwood Gators.

    Behind the left arm and legs of senior quarterback Thomas Wilson and the continued maturation of their offensive line, the Green Wave rolled to a 45-14 win over the Gators in the nightcap of the Joe Jaggers Bowl at North Hardin’s Ray Story Stadium.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: John Hardin...

    LEXINGTON — The Golden Rule is do to others as you would have them do to you and that is exactly what the John Hardin Bulldogs did to the Lexington Catholic Knights on Saturday night.

    Lexington Catholic has a deep-rooted tradition of putting up impressive passing numbers and this year is no different, while the Bulldogs are just the opposite, renowned for producing great running backs and piling up staggering rushing numbers.


    This wasn’t the OK Corral, but Joseph K. Ford Stadium saw a shootout Saturday night.

    After trailing by as many as eight in the first half, the John Hardin Bulldogs – ranked second in Class 5-A – rallied to take a seven-point halftime lead and they made it stand up with a 47-37 victory over the host Lexington Catholic Knights – ranked third in Class 4-A – in the Republic Bank Bluegrass Bowl.

    The teams combined for 921 yards of total offense in the back-and-forth affair.


    Thomas Wilson and the Meade County Green Wave took out several years of frustration on the Bowling Green Greenwood Gators on Saturday night.

    Wilson accounted for more than 300 yards and scored four touchdowns to lead the Green Wave to a 45-14 win over Greenwood in the Joe Jaggers Bowl’s late game at North Hardin’s Ray Story Stadium.

    Meade County had never beaten Greenwood before Saturday, losing to the Gators four straight years after the teams became district rivals.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Albert's big...

    Two weeks into the season, the LaRue County Hawks are looking for a No. 3 option on offense. However, No. 45 is turning out to be a No. 1 type of playmaker on the other side of the ball.

    The Hawks’ dynamic senior backfield duo of Drew Newberry and Cody Thompson shined again at home Friday night, but it was 5-foot-8, 145-pound senior linebacker Taylor Albert who sparked LaRue County to a 27-24 win over the Shelby County Rockets with a fumble recovery that set up the winning touchdown and two sacks – including one to end the game.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Knox dealt a hard...

    MUNFORDVILLE — First-year Fort Knox coach Shawn Thompson was speechless after Friday’s game against the Hart County Raiders.

    And not in a good way.

  • PREP GOLF ROUNDUP: North Hardin...

    Lydia Gumm made waves last year when the North Hardin High School sophomore golf standout shot a jaw-dropping 61 to win the Kentucky Invitational Tournament at the par-70 Lakewood Country Club in Russell Springs for the fifth straight year.

    Jaws are going to drop again.

    The North Hardin junior duplicated her score Saturday as Gumm recorded her sixth straight KIT victory by eight strokes over Campbellsville’s Ellen Kehoe and Williamsburg’s Becky Sharpe.
