    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.

  • PREP GOLF ROUNDUP: Thursday...





    FORTKNOX — Results from Thursday’s quad match (Fort Knox, John Hardin, Meade County, North Hardin) at the par-36 back nine Lindsey Golf Course:


  • 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.


    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.


    Senior Chris Wilk scored in the final 15 minutes off a double assist from sophomore Jeremy Garcia and senior Daniel Ruiz as the John Hardin Bulldogs tied visiting North Oldham, 1-1 on Thursday.

    Senior keeper Dylan Smith stopped nine shots for the Bulldogs (4-3-1).

    UP NEXT: John Hardin plays at Nelson County at 7 p.m. Tuesday.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Bruins brace for...

    Central Hardin coach Mark Perry is in his first season with the Bruins, but he has already embraced the rivalry with Elizabethtown.

    The schools are separated by a few miles and the student-athletes usually grow up playing sports with one another. Perry understands what a victory means in this series and wants to carry on the tradition his predecessor Mike Lawson, who went 3-1 against the Panthers.


    The John Hardin Lady Bulldogs cruised to a 25-19, 25-15 win over 17th District rival Fort Knox on Thursday.

    John Hardin (4-4 overall, 2-3 district) improved to 3-3 in its last six matches, while Fort Knox (1-8, 0-4) lost its second straight.

    No statistics were available.

    UP NEXT: John Hardin plays in the Marion County Invitational on Saturday. Fort Knox plays at Elizabethtown at 7 p.m. Thursday.

  • 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?
