    Central Hardin’s football team found yet another way to win.

    The Bruins have recorded victories via shootout, blowout and overtime comeback already this season.

    Add a defensive spark to the mix.

    Senior wide receiver/defensive back Carlos Ruiz caught a touchdown pass, scored on a fumble recovery and nearly returned an interception for a touchdown in the fourth quarter Friday night to spur host Central Hardin to a 28-14 homecoming win over Bullitt East.


    The John Hardin Bulldogs, who are ranked second in Class 5-A, remained undefeated as they rolled past the Louisville Iroquois Raiders, 75-0 on Friday night in a Class 5-A, District 3 game.

    The Bulldogs (5-0 overall, 1-0 in district) set a school record for points, topping the 69 they scored against Dayton on Sept 13, 2002. They exploded for 47 points in the first quarter, which was a record for points in a quarter.


    Corey LaFever rushed for a game-high 242 yards and two touchdowns on 31 carries to lead visiting Louisville DeSales to a 35-28 win over Class 2-A, District 4 rival Fort Knox on Friday at McAdams Field.

    LaFever scored on runs of 7 and 51 yards as the Colts (2-3) overcame four turnovers to hold off the Eagles (1-4), who lost their fourth straight. DeSales fumbled six times, losing four of them.

    Quarterback Jared Nauert completed 8-of-12 passes for 192 yards and two scores for DeSales, which led 21-14 at the half.


    After last week’s disappointing 27-24 overtime loss to Central Hardin, North Hardin coach Crad Jaggers wondered how his team would respond.

    It didn’t take long for Jaggers to get his answer.

    After failing to score on their first possessions, the Trojans scored on seven consecutive possessions and also had a defensive touchdown as they hammered the Grayson County Cougars, 53-0 on Friday night in a Class 5-A, District 3 game.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Meade County...

    Meade County football coach Larry Mofield feels like a chemist.

    With senior quarterback and offensive leader Thomas Wilson out with a broken ring finger for at least the next three weeks, Mofield is trying to find a new concoction for his offense.

    He’s mixing a little of sophomore Zeb Wilson, a little bit of the wildcat and maybe even a special surprise formation or two for Henderson County.

  • PREP VOLLEYBALL: Elizabethtown...

    After this week, Elizabethtown’s volleyball team will definitely get a glimpse of where it stands against some of the 5th Region’s top teams.

    The Lady Panthers have faced more than a handful already – but not in a slew of matches like this.

    This week alone, they’ll have taken on three of the region’s elite teams.

  • PREP GOLF: North boys' golf...

    The fifth annual North Hardin Invitational boys’ golf tournament is much like the previous ones. It features a stacked field and is a good prelude to what could happen in the postseason.

    The North Hardin Invitational is Saturday at Lincoln Trail Country Club. The tournament begins at 8 a.m. with a shotgun start. This year’s event features 21 teams.


    Meade County staved off those pesky John Hardin Lady Bulldogs.

    The Lady Waves needed three sets, but hung on for a 25-20, 22-25, 25-17 victory Thursday night over John Hardin.

    Meade County (13-4) won its third straight match and now has three winning streaks of three games or more this season.

  • PREP SOCCER ROUNDUP: Green Wave...

    Junior Chase Long scored twice and the Meade County Green Wave snapped a two-game losing streak with a 2-0 win over visiting Marion County on Thursday.

    Both of Long’s goals came in the first half for the Green Wave (9-6-1), who had lost 5-of-6.

    Junior keeper Alex Fackler made eight saves as Meade County outshot Marion County, 19-8.

    UP NEXT: Meade County hosts John Hardin at 7 p.m. Tuesday.
