  • Short-deck Cards, powerful...

    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.”

  • Despain wins Modified portion of...

    Local second generation racer Elliott Despain of Campbellsville picked up his second win of the 2011 racing season at Ponderosa Speedway in Junction City as the driver, better known as the “Modern Day Leroy”, led the race from green-to-checkered to pick up an $800 pay day on what was an unseasonably cool Friday evening.

  • CU can't escape nine-...

    Despite turning the ball over a record nine times, Campbellsville University rallied in the final four minutes of the game to pull within a touchdown of the University of Pikeville in a 37-30 upset at Finley Stadium’s HIG Field Saturday.
    “It’s hard to beat anyone with nine turnovers, but I thought defensively, we played a pretty good game,” CU head coach Perry Thomas said.

  • TC's fourth-down gamble...

    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.”

  • Barren Cup claimed by Cardinals

    Luke McDonald had three assists and Cunha one.

  • No. 17 CU Tigers fall at NCAA D-...

    Injuries slowed the Campbellsville University Fighting Tigers from the opening kickoff Saturday, as 17th-ranked Tigers fell at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, 54-14, inside Perkins Stadium.
    Whitewater showed why it is the two-time defending NCAA Division III national champions by racking up 571 yards of total offense for its 33rd consecutive win. Campbellsville was held to a season-low 254 yards in its first loss of the season.

  • It's all Rebels as Boyle...

    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.
