  • Cards clip Casey 22-21 in OT

    The Casey County Rebels overcame bad weather just to play the game Friday night as their community had been hit by a tornado earlier in the day.  When this game was finished, Taylor County had survived what felt like a storm from the visitors, winning in overtime 22–21.

    Lance Turpin and Blake Dudgeon hooked up on the Cardinals’ second play from scrimmage, a 46 yard strike that gave the Cardinals a 7-0 advantage.

  • CU evens mark with 16-6 home...

    Campbellsville University opened its Mid-South Conference East Division schedule Saturday at home with a 16-6 victory over West Virginia Tech.

    The Tigers silenced the eighth-best offense in the NAIA by holding the Golden Bears to 219 total yards, unlike their 495-yard-per-game average.

    The CU defense forced 10 fumbles, recovering four. Louisville native Sherman Williams had two of the takeaways, while Karl Charles added an interception.

  • Unsung Eagles stand out in...

    Campbellsville High School lost two starters to injuries and nearly three but claimed a hard-fought 12-6 overtime victory at Lynn Camp on Friday night.

    “At one point, I didn’t know if we could finish the game,” Eagle coach Jason Chappell said after losing Bryton Taylor and Donovan Pittman to injuries. “You want the guys to play with a lot of guts and they sure did tonight.”

    Lynn Camp led 6-0 at the half when Wesley Steele broke loose from 90 yards during the steady rain.

  • Cardinals jar Jackson 37-28

    Taylor County opened district play with a 37-8 romp on the road Friday night at Jackson County.

    After a 30-minute lightning delay five minutes into the opening period, an interception on their first play from scrimmage and a scoreless first half (due to eight first-half penalties), Lance Turpin settled in and directed the Cardinals (2-4) to a dominating offensive performance, out-gaining the Generals (0-5) 359 to 77 yards. 

  • Playing for 'the marbles...

    It doesn’t matter who won the cross-town battle between the Eagles and Cardinals or that each team got shellacked last week in games with area rivals. It’s all thrown out the window when district play begins tomorrow for Campbellsville and Taylor County and the shuffling begins for post-season action.

    For the next two weeks, CHS and TCHS will play district road games, with the Eagles visiting Lynn Camp tomorrow and Berea next Friday and the Cardinals playing at Jackson County tomorrow and at Somerset next week.
