  • Battle between Eagles to decide District 2 top seed

    The last eight games between Campbellsville and Bethlehem have been some strange deals.
    The last two, just like tomorrow’s encounter on Dave Fryrear Field, have been district battles. CHS fell 14-13 at home two years ago and Bethlehem pulled away for a 22-8 triumph in Bardstown last season.
    The previous six contests between the sets of Eagles were back-and-forth with each team winning six.
    Campbellsville went 2-1 at Bardstown with a 33-21 loss in 2013 while Bardstown went 2-1 on the road with its only loss coming 36-0 in 2014.

  • Third frame costs TC at East Jessamine

    Taylor County scored on the last play of the first half to lead home-standing East Jessamine on Friday night.
    However, the host Jaguars put up three third-period touchdowns and held on for a 28-20 district triumph in Nicholasville.
    The Cardinals led 6-0 early in the second period on Tre Goodin’s 54-yard pass touchdown pass to Cameron Kosid out of punt formation.
    However, East Jessamine led 7-6 before Darien Bishop’s interception at :39 set up Logan Parker’s burst from two yards out.
    Bishop caught the go-head conversion from Goodin.
