    Central Hardin squeaked out two straight one-goal wins, including one over a top-10 ranked team in its two games in Saturday’s Daviess County Classic in Owensboro.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: John Hardin...

    The John Hardin Bulldogs heard the entire preseason about how difficult their schedule was this season and how they wouldn’t do as well.

    The Bulldogs took that as a challenge and they wanted to issue a statement, and unfortunately for the Lexington Henry Clay Blue Devils, it came at their expense.

    John Hardin scored on its first six possessions as the Bulldogs hammered Henry Clay, 56-6 on Friday night in the Don Franklin Bowl at Lindsey Wilson College in Columbia.

  • GIRLS' PREP GOLF: North...

    It was Central Hardin’s invitational Saturday at Fort Knox’s Lindsey Golf Course, but it was a North Hardin junior duo that did the celebrating.

    Lydia Gumm went 4-under to win the Lady Bruin Invitational by five strokes, while Sara Crutcher treated herself with a season-low 90 to finish as the area’s No. 2 individual.


    Junior Brandon Franklin threw for five touchdowns and senior Akio Tonge accounted for more than 220 all-purpose yards to lead the host Fort Knox Eagles to a stunning 41-21 victory over longtime rival Elizabethtown on Friday at McAdams Field.

    Franklin completed 9-of-18 passes for 233 yards in leading the Eagles to their first season-opening win since 2004. Tonge, meanwhile, returned a kickoff 79 yards for a score and hauled in a 72-yard pass from Franklin for another.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Meade County...

    SHELBYVILLE — Meade County senior Thomas Wilson is considered one of the state’s top dual-threat quarterbacks. As it turns out, buddies John Clark and Brady Smith are pretty good at doing things different ways, too.

    Clark scored one touchdown on special teams and another rushing and Smith had a third-quarter interception to set up his go-ahead receiving touchdown less than a minute later as the visiting Green Wave rallied for a 33-25 season-opening win Friday over the Collins Titans at Shelby County High School’s Robert Doyle Stadium.


    The John Hardin Bulldogs made sure two streaks continued Friday night.

    The Bulldogs rolled to an impressive 56-6 victory over Lexington Henry Clay in the Don Franklin Bowl at Lindsey Wilson College to win their 10th consecutive season opener and 23rd regular-season game.

    The 50-point margin of victory was John Hardin’s largest in a season opener.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Fort Knox stuns E...

    On paper, the Elizabethtown Panthers appeared to have the edge over the Fort Knox Eagles. The Panthers were bigger and stronger at nearly every position and had more depth.

    Games, however, aren’t played on paper.

    Junior quarterback Brandon Franklin threw for five touchdowns and senior wide receiver Akio Tonge accounted for over 220 all-purpose yards to lead the host Eagles to a stunning 41-21 victory over longtime rival Elizabethtown on Friday at McAdams Field.

  • GIRLS' PREP GOLF: Central...

    When other girls’ golf tournaments started popping up the same weekend as his long-running Lady Bruin Invitational, Central Hardin coach Chris Adams wondered if this year’s annual event Saturday at Fort Knox’s par-73 Lindsey Golf Course would have the same appeal as its proud past.

    Um, yeah.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Pressure on Todd...

    Since getting an up-close view of Kyle Todd two seasons ago when he was a Louisville Male assistant, Shawn Thompson has been thoroughly impressed by what he’s seen from the Elizabethtown senior quarterback.

    Todd threw for 281 yards and led the Panthers to two touchdowns in their first two possessions, but Male turned up the heat on Todd and rolled to a victory in the 2009 season opener.

    Just like in that game, Thompson said the key is getting pressure on Todd and not letting him stand in the pocket for long.
