  • 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.

  • Tigers drop home opener to No....

    10th-ranked Lambuth University moved to 3-0 to start the season with a 28-13 victory at Campbellsville University’s Ron Finley Stadium on Saturday.

    Lambuth opened its third road game of the season with a 10-play, 58-yard drive to take a 7-0 lead on a four-yard touchdown run by Ben Stallings. While the Tiger offense stalled in four plays, the CU defense put the Tigers on the board when Jeffery Demary returned an interception 35 yards for a game-tying touchdown with 4:54 to play in the opening quarter.

  • Dragons bounce back, rout Eagles...

    Green County regrouped from a one-point home loss to LaRue County a week earlier to demolish the homestanding Campbellsville High School Eagles 56-18 in the annual Cow Bowl clash on Dave Fryrear Field on Thursday night.

    "You don't play sometimes football and compete with teams like Green County and the good teams on our schedule," Eagle coach Jason Chappell admitted.

  • Knights roll over Cards 67-0

    The Cardinals could not get their offense in sync Friday night, and the defense faced a multi-player running game like no other they had seen this season.

    Marion County (3-2) used 15 players running the football as they accumulated 395 rushing yards on 41 attempts and controlled the game completely.

    Senior Dylan Peterson led the way for the Knights, gaining 102 yards on eight carries, including touchdown runs of 23 and 40 yards in the second quarter.

  • Local teams have hands full in...

    As Campbellsville and Taylor County get ready to begin district play next week, the Eagles and Cardinals have extremely tough football clashes at home.

    CHS hosts Green County tonight (8:00) in the annual Cow Days Bowl on Dave Fryrear Field.

    The Dragons are coming off a one-point loss to LaRue County but still rank as one of the best teams in Class AA.

    Campbellsville has won 30 of the 46 games in the series. However, Green County has won the last three — 42-12 in 2006, 51-0 in 2007 and 40-14 last season.

  • Cards notch third win in 21...

    1993 (22-21), 2003 (35-13) and 2009 (28-27).

    Those are the three seasons Taylor County has managed a victory over Washington County in 21 tries, and all three of them came in Springfield.

    The one on Friday night started out like it would be an easy road romp as the Cardinals led 28-0 with 4:01 left in the first half.

    However, missed extra points enabled Taylor County to hold off the Commanders and post the 28-27 triumph on Friday night.

  • CHS squares record with...

    The Campbellsville Eagles moved to .500 on the season with a solid defensive performance in triumphing 20-14 at Bethlehem on Friday night.

    “They are a good football team,” Eagle coach Jason Chappell offered. “Our defense played hard, but there are still things we didn’t do right. However, we gave great effort and I’ll take an ugly win over a pretty loss any day.”
