  • BOYS' PREP SOCCER: North...

    North Hardin junior Elijah Linscott peered over his right shoulder Thursday night and saw Jordan Hill making a run toward the far post. So, Linscott planned on heading junior Stevie Packer’s long throw-in toward his streaking senior teammate.

    Unfortunately for Hill, the ball never got to him. Fortunately for Linscott, the ball found its way to the net instead against visiting Central Hardin.

    The Trojans’ defense did the rest again, holding on for a 1-0 win over the reigning district and region tournament champion Bruins.

  • BOYS' PREP SOCCER: Meade...

    The Meade County boys’ soccer team keeps dropping opponents with some offensive variety, stellar defense and a few sly moves.

    Guess who’s at the top of the 10th District standings now, too?


    The Elizabethtown Lady Panthers and Louisville Assumption Rockets put on quite the show Wednesday night.

    In what was arguably one of the best early-season games this year, third-ranked and homestanding Assumption handed No. 2 Elizabethtown its first loss in a 2-1 win.

    “We actually dominated the second half, I thought, with possession and opportunities,” said Lady Panthers coach Jerry Crabtree. “We played good soccer, we just didn’t finish. It was going to be a dead-even game, and it was.”






    ELIZABETHTOWN — Results from Wednesday’s match at the par-36 front nine at Pine Valley:


  • PREP FOOTBALL: Eagles ready to...

    While breaking down film of the Butler County Bears, one thing jumped out to first-year Fort Knox coach Shawn Thompson: The Bears have an array of playmakers on offense.

    It starts with senior Clay Embry, who’s accounted for nearly half of Butler County’s total offense. In two games, Embry has rushed seven times for 220 yards and five touchdowns and caught five passes for 65 yards and another score.

    “I think he is probably their best athlete. He apparently does everything for them,” Thompson said.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: LaRue, Spencer...

    LaRue County football coach Rodney Armes thinks Spencer County and his Hawks have similar styles.

    They both utilize the ground game and both like to move the ball through the Wing-T formation.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Trojans must slow...

    North Hardin’s football team has run into its first major test.

    After rushing all over South Oldham in a season-opening 28-point win, the Trojans have to deal with a new conundrum.

  • GIRLS' PREP SOCCER: Meade...

    With about 13 minutes to go Wednesday night and his team up comfortably against visiting 10th District rival North Hardin, Meade County coach Dan Shook turned to the Lady Waves on his bench and said, “I’m not doing any school work tonight.”

    A bit premature, sure, but senior Shelby Miller and the previously winless Lady Waves had already done plenty of work to put their coach in his state of euphoria.

  • BOYS' PREP SOCCER: Meade...

    Matt Pollock was so incensed with his team’s pre-game warm-up Tuesday night that the Meade County veteran coach stopped one of the Green Wave’s drills and told his team to get with it.

    Alex McAdams and his buddies got the message – and got a big 10th District victory in the process.
