    The Central Hardin Bruins had been in this position three times already this season as visiting 17th District rival John Hardin built a double-digit lead in the early going Tuesday night at Bruin Gym.

    Much like in their first three games, the Bruins figured they had plenty of time to pull off another come-from-behind victory.

    John Hardin senior guard Malcolm Foster would have none of it. Foster hit six 3-pointers and finished with a career-high 36 points to lead the Bulldogs to an 82-66 win. It was Central Hardin’s third straight loss after a 3-0 start.

  • PREP BASKETBALL: Both Central...

    Both Central Hardin basketball teams started off fast this season before running into trouble last week.

    Coach J.C. Wright’s Bruins were 3-0 before falling at 17th District rival Elizabethtown on Friday and losing to Louisville Fern Creek on Saturday in the Army Bulldog Classic at John Hardin.

    Coach David Robbins’ Lady Bruins won their first three games before dropping their next three contests.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Area players...

    LOUISVILLE Kentucky defeated Louisville, 28-12, in Sunday’s Best of the Bluegrass All-Star Game for outgoing high school seniors at St. Xavier.

    Three area players competed for Louisville. North Hardin linebacker Alik Rucker had two solo and three unassisted tackles, while John Hardin defensive back Anthony Wright had one solo tackle and two pass deflections and John Hardin lineman Matt Linton had one solo tackle, deflected a pass and forced a fumble.


    LOUISVILLE Saturday was supposed to be the day the Louisville Cardinals finally met their match.

    With Butler considered to be overrated and living off its reputation from the Bulldogs’ run to the NCAA Tournament title game last season, UNLV surely would show the Cardinals were little more than a yet-to-to-on-the-road team feasting on a bunch of cupcakes. Right?


    An 0-3 start had James Slaven suffering flashbacks to his first year as North Hardin’s coach.

    The Lady Trojans lost their season-opening game to 5th Region rival Hart County in 2007, but they got turned things around by winning their next 11 games. This season, however, was different as North Hardin lost its first three games by an average of 28 points.

    On Friday night, the Lady Trojans’ luck took a turn for the better as they picked up their first win with a 71-31 victory over 17th District rival Fort Knox at Ron Bevars Gymnasium.


    Glasgow junior guard Parker Cash hit a contested 3-pointer with 5 seconds left to lift the visiting Scotties to a 62-61 win over the North Hardin Trojans on Friday night.

    After the Trojans (1-2) missed two free throws, Parker hit the game-winning shot to send Glasgow to its third straight win and hand North Hardin its second straight loss.

    Junior post Adam Hendrix paced the Trojans with 18 points, 11 rebounds and two blocks, while senior forward Chris Sterusky had 12 points, 13 rebounds, three steals and two assists.

    Sophomore forward Chanel Roberts scored 23 points, junior guard Brianna Woodson added 21 and the homestanding North Hardin Lady Trojans rallied from 15 points down to beat 5th Region rival Green County on Saturday, 59-53.

    Trailing by 15 in the third quarter, the Lady Trojans (2-3) outscored Green County by 15 in the fourth quarter to pick up their second win in as many days.

    Woodson scored all of her 21 points in the fourth quarter, while freshman guard Domoneque Taft added 12.


    MUNFORDVILLE — According to the at&t SmartPhone commercial, a little girl uses the phone’s internet capabilities to learn that the monster in her closet isn’t real.

    Unfortunately for the LaRue County Lady Hawks, their Munfordville monster that is the Hart County gym is alive and well.

    103: 3. Kyle Edlin                                     4-1


    MUNFORDVILLE — Being young and rather inexperienced, the LaRue County Hawks are bound to have their ups and downs.
    Friday was such a night with plenty of downs before an up ending.
    The visiting Hawks opened 18th District play with a 52-47 win over the Hart County Raiders, but it was a victory that came far more difficult than it should have been.
