  • TCHS' Cardinals crush Casey...

    Taylor County High School made it two district wins in a row and ran its season winning streak to three games Friday as they crushed Casey County 51-23 in Liberty.

    Senior tailback Chris Thomas once again led the Cardinal attack as he ran for four touchdowns on the night and had 230 rushing yards on 15 carries.

    His supporting cast provided a special teams' score and two touchdowns through the air.

  • Dragons dump Eagles 40-14 in Cow...

    Campbellsville used a Michael McCubbin kick-off return to stay close, but Green County proved to be too powerful for the Eagles in posting a 40-14 romp in the annual Cow Bowl on Thursday night in Greensburg.

    The Dragons struck on their first possession when coach Mike Griffith's club needed only five plays to go 67 yards.

    A Justin Pendleton pass to Zeth Rogers netted 13 yards before Pendleton kept right for another 12.

  • Bengals, Cowboys and Titans...

    Three teams remained undefeated after week two of Campbellsville Community Club Youth Football.

    In the Senior League, the Cowboys edged the Steelers 12-6 in double overtime while the Bengals improved to 2-0 with a 42-0 thrashing of the Steelers.

    The Cowboys got touchdown runs of 4 and 5 yards by Kendon Young to triumph in two extra periods over the Eagles.

    After a scoreless regulation, Young put the Cowboys up 6-0 before Eagle defenders Hunter Christie and Justice Gregory stopped the conversion try.

  • Second 23 years starts somewhat...

    Friday night ended a 23-year run as sports editor at the Central Kentucky News-Journal. And Saturday began the start of another period of covering sports on the local scene.

    On Friday the 13th, September 1985, a raw sports ed headed to Russell Springs to cover the Campbellsville High at Russell County football game.

    Then editor Richard RoBards kept calling during the week and telling me of deletions from the Eagle attack.

    The CHS bad luck actually began during pre-season drills when first-year head coach David Payne was forced to resign because of a back injury.

  • Panthers punish CU Tigers 50-14

    NAIA No. 5-rated Ohio Dominican built a 36-0 lead en route to a 50-14 whipping of Campbellsville University on HIG Field at Ron Finley Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

    The Tigers avoided the shutout when Greg Fountain tallied from three yards out and then added a Markus Ramsey one-yard touchdown reception from Ross Deaton. Detrick Briggs ran in the two-point conversion.

    Fountain finished with 61 yards on 20 carries while Deaton passed for 141 yards. Russell Parker was Deaton's top receiver with six catches for 54 yards.

  • Lady Cards capture Heartland...

    Taylor County's girls' and Marion County's boys' teams won Heartland Athletic Conference Golf Tournament titles Monday at Campbellsville Country Club.

    Lauren Goodin (75) of Adair County won her third straight medalist honor for the girls while Green County's Grayson Bills (74) took the top boys' spot.

    Ellen Kehoe (85) and MeLeigha Pollock (89) paced Taylor County to its second Heartland team title in three seasons.

    Also on the girls' all-conference team were Green County's Kate Larimore (83) and Leah Judd (88).

  • Clay Marcum Field at Thomas...

    Taylor County formerly dedicated the naming of its football stadium as Thomas Porter Stadium before the Cardinals' season opener on Aug. 29 vs. Monroe County.

    The stadium is named in memory of Candace Porter's son who passed away in August, 2007.

    Porter gets starting nod for Centre

    Taylor County High School graduate Chase Porter drew the opening-game starting nod at running back in Centre College's 46-22 win over Hanover.

    The 5-11, 211-pound junior gained 52 yards on 16 carries and caught four passes for 28 yards.

  • Cards outscore Somerset 45-42 in...

    Taylor County opened district play Friday night with a thrilling 45-42 victory over Somerset.

    Chris Thomas took the handoff on the Cardinals' first play from scrimmage for 73 yards and a touchdown. That would be the only score of the first period as Justin Hoosier and Cody Van Meter helped contain the Briar Jumper attack.

  • Eagles pour it on in fourth for...

    Campbellsville High School's Eagles tallied 21 fourth-quarter points to begin district play with a 33-12 victory at home on Friday night.

    Lynn Camp scored first on a blocked punt, which the Wildcats recovered in the end zone.

    Michael McCubbin's 76-yard run in the second quarter knotted the score at 6-6.

    "We spread them out in the first half and made them chase us," said Eagle coach Herb Wiseman of his team's game plan. "Then in the second half, we just lined up and ran it straight at 'em."

    And run it they did.
