  • CU blows past Pikeville 62-17

    Pick a way to put points on the board and Campbellsville University nearly did it all Saturday as the Tigers posted the third most points in program history in a 62-17 Mid-South Conference East Division win over Pikeville College.

    The Tigers scored on four passing touchdowns, three rushing, a punt return, an interception return and a field goal en route to a 3-0 start in the MSC East.

  • Somerset shellacks Taylor County...

    Taylor County was coming off a 38-point win over Jackson County in its district opener while Somerset, the state’s top-rated Class 3-A squad, entered the contest with 38 touchdowns on the season.

    The 7-0 Briar Jumpers added to their 6.33 touchdown average per game by rolling up 10 TDs and a safety in rolling over the home-standing Cardinals 71-8 on Friday night.

  • It's October so basketball...

    During the old days, basketball didn’t start until after Thanksgiving. Times do change, and now the hoop scene gets going around Halloween.

    The Campbellsville University men begin that afternoon in an exhibition game at Western Kentucky University.

    Coach Keith Adkins’ Tigers will also play an exhibition game at Oklahoma State vs. former CU coach Travis Ford’s Cowboys the following Friday, Nov. 5.

    The CU men begin regular-season play vs. Southern University at New Orleans in the Georgetown Classic on Friday, Nov. 12.

  • Tigers take Raiders in rival tilt

    A pair of defensive touchdowns early in the second half gave Campbellsville University sole control of Saturday’s game, as the Fighting Tigers mounted a 48-30 win over Mid-South Conference rival Lindsey Wilson College in front of a sellout crowd at Finley Stadium.

  • Cards score five TDs, force five...

    Coach Curtis Cotton captured his initial win as head coach for Taylor County and the Cardinals started district play with a convincing 38-0 victory over Jackson County at home on Friday night.

    The defense set the stage for the game as they forced five turnovers, aided by steady rains in the first half. 

    Cody Newton began the scoring with a 23-yard run and Ben Hollingsworth hit Matthew Johns for the conversion.

    Christian Cowherd set up his teammates with a fumble recovery at the Generals’ 27-yard line. 

  • CMS blanks TCMS during Eagle...

    Campbellsville Middle School dominated from start to finish in posting a 34-0 football victory over visiting Taylor County on Tuesday night.

    The Eagles, who visit Russell County tomorrow, took the early lead on Eric Lamer’s seven-yard run and Grant Adams’ two-point reception from Shay Stone.

    Three plays later, Adams picked off a Cardinal pass at midfield and raced 50 yards to pay dirt for a 14-0 CMS cushion.

    Lamer appeared to go 82 yards on the Eagles’ next drive but was penalized for taunting and CMS did not score.

  • Eagles start 'new'...

    Campbellsville began district play with a win and authored its second shutout of the season as the Eagles downed visiting Lynn Camp 14-0 on Friday night.

    Despite having two touchdowns called back because of penalties, coach Jay Cobb’s club dominated their foe and out-gained the Wildcats 278-82 in total yards.

    Both of Campbellsville’s scores came in the first quarter during a three-minute stretch.

    Five runs, four by Tashaun Hoskins, set up Hoskins’ seven-yard TD run with 5:22 left in the opening 12 minutes.

  • Lady Cards take pair of matches...

    Taylor County swept a high school doubleheader from Campbellsville last week. The Lady Cardinals bested the Lady Eagles 25-19, 29-27 at CHS on Monday and 25-18, 25-15 at home on Thursday.

    The TCHS junior varsity also won 21-12, 21-19 and 21-6, 21-16.
