  • Eagles shellack Lynn Camp 53-0

    Campbellsville High School rode stellar performances from its seniors on Friday as the Eagles went on the road to get their first district win of the 2011 season, knocking off the Lynn Camp Wildcats 53-0.
    CHS (4-4) scored early and often during the Wildcats’  homecoming game as senior signalcaller Josh Hicks got the party started with a 19-yard strike to fellow senior Dra Thornton for the Eagles’ first score.
    Hicks was at it again in less than five minutes as he found senior Tyler Carson from nine yards out, pushing the CHS lead to 12-0.

  • Mercer pulls away from Taylor 43-7

    Mercer County scored the game’s final 36 points to upend home-standing Taylor County 43-7 on Friday night at Thomas Porter Stadium.
    The Titans (4-4) needed only 57 seconds to score the game’s first touchdown after a short delay when the lights would not turn on at Clay Marcum Field.
    After Mercer County did not connect on a 27-yard field goal, Taylor County went 80 yards on 14 plays to knot the score at 7-7 on Dylan Bright’s 11-yard score and Raphael Cunha’s extra-point boot.

  • Lady Dragons finish second at state

    Green County High School’s Lady Dragons, the two-time defending champions, finished second at the Girls’ State Golf Tournament on Saturday in Bowling Green.
    Sacred Heart of Louisville won the team title while Emma Talley of Caldwell County won her third individual title in four seasons. The University of Alabama-bound Talley would have had four, but she disqualified herself in 2009 for making a one-stroke mistake on her scorecard despite leading by six shots.

  • CHS stumbles out of district gate

    A lethargic start put Campbellsville High School into a hole they could never fully get out of and a 28-27 loss in the Eagles’ district opener at home to Williamsburg on Friday night.
    The Eagles (3-4) trailed 22-0 early as sophomore quarterback Dalton Sizemore hooked up twice (13 and 16 yards) with freshman wide receiver Skyler Griffith around a nine-yard TD run by freshman Jefferson Patrick.
    The Yellow Jackets also converted their first two two-point tries and led 22-0.

  • Short-deck Cards, powerful Knights mean 69-6 TC loss

    Playing with a short deck of Cardinals, Taylor County High School was pummeled 69-6 on the road Friday night at Lexington Catholic.
    “They were incredibly good and we had three players (starters Daulton Turpin, Blake Dudgeon and Raphael Cunha) out,” TCHS head coach Eric Graves remarked after the contest. “Our boys did have  a chance to see what a Division 1 quarterback looks like.”

  • TC's fourth-down gamble ignites Marion

    Taylor County led 14-7 with just over three minutes left in the first half.
    But, the Cardinals were stopped on fourth down at the Taylor County 30-yard line and home-standing Marion County tallied 35 more consecutive points en route to a 42-14 district victory on Friday night in Lebanon.
    “I shouldn’t have gone for it,” admitted TCHS Head Coach Eric Graves. “The kids said ‘coach we can get it’ and I’m trying to build some confidence in this team.”

  • Lady Cards blank Hart, Monroe

    Taylor County’s Lady Cardinals shut out Hart County 6-0 last Thursday and Monroe County 4-0 on Monday for their fifth and sixth high school soccer victories this season.
    Coach Jason England’s club got two goals apiece from Amber Green and Raven Burress vs. Hart County while Katie Long and Kassie Miller had one each.
    Against Monroe County, Burress had two goals and Green and Long one apiece and Morgan Wilson had the shutout in goal.

  • Barren Cup claimed by Cardinals

    Taylor County High School used a 14-5 goal advantage to capture the Barren Cup last week in boys’ soccer action.
    The Cardinals bested Glasgow 5-2 last Wednesday as Trae Wells had four goals and Raphael Cunha the other tally.
    Luke McDonald had three assists and Cunha one.
    On Saturday, coach Mike McFee’s club downed the host Trojans 3-2 as McDonald had two goals and Wells one. Wells also had two assists and Miguel Ayala one.

  • It's all Rebels as Boyle County blasts TC 57-0

    Boyle County may not be the same team that won 47 consecutive games and five straight state titles from 1999-2003, but the Rebels are still a “polished well-oiled machine” as Taylor County will attest to after a 57-0 loss at home on Friday night.
    The Rebels (4-2 with losses to undefeated powers Fort Thomas Highlands and John Hardin), scored three different ways — kick-off return, run and punt return to take a 21-0 first-quarter lead.

  • CHS spoils Paris' Homecoming

    It took the Campbellsville High School Eagles a quarter or so to get going Friday night in Paris, but once the purple and gold got rolling, it was all over.
    The Eagle defense led the charge, holding the Greyhounds to only two first downs on the night. It also accounted for one of the teams five CHS touchdowns.
    Eagle senior Alex Brunelle, who started the game at quarterback, scored early in the second quarter on a 51-yard run. The extra point was missed, leaving the Eagles with a 6-0 early advantage.
