  • Tigers (Georgetown) claim...

    Campbellsville University dropped its first Mid-South Conference East Division game this season 52-21 to Georgetown College in the Victory Sports Network NAIA Game of the Week on Thursday.

    Georgetown (3-2, 2-0 MSC East) jumped out to a 28-7 lead en route to taking over the driver’s seat in the East with the win over 25th-ranked Campbellsville (4-3, 3-1 MSC East).

    The road Tigers used a balanced offensive attack to eclipse Campbellsville in its “Black Out” game by posting 587 total yards of total offense (299 passing, 288 rushing).

  • Lady Cards conclude soccer...

    Taylor County High School’s girls’ soccer team heads into district play today on a hot streak with 10 wins in their last 14 matches.

    Only a 0-0 tie to Marion County and setbacks to Glasgow and Boyle County and another 0-0 deadlock with LaRue County in the regular-season finale last Thursday dampened the streak.

    The Lady Cardinals (11-6-3) picked up shut-outs vs. Garrard County (2-0), Monroe County (4-0) and Wayne County (2-0) on Oct. 2, Oct. 4 and Oct. 5, respectively.

  • Casey shuts out Cards 28-0

    Down three injured starters from the previous week, Taylor County dropped a 28-0 road decision to Casey County on Friday.

    The Rebels (5-3) showed little compassion on the Cardinals as they used a ball-control ground attack, accumulating 464 yards on 58 carries.

  • Williamsburg whips Eagles 30-12

    Campbellsville’s chances of back-to-back district titles took a serious hit on Friday night at Williamsburg when the Eagles fell 30-12.

    The Eagles got off to a slow start and never recovered.

    Williamsburg running back Kevin Hoffman started the second drive with a 52-yard run to set up a two-yard TD pass from sophomore quarterback Logan Hamblin to senior James Payne. The duo also hooked up on a successful conversion.

  • Eagles win 'ugly' over...

    Campbellsville High School first-year Eagle boss Jay Cobb needed only  one word to describe Campbellsville’s 20-6 win over district foe Berea on Friday night.

    “Ugly, ugly, ugly!

    “This was probably our worst defensive performance of the year,” Cobb admitted. “And, offensively we have got to finish.

    “Consistency is our biggest issue. We’re good between the 20s, but inside the 20’s we’ve sputtered.”

  • Football realignment will be...

    The local high school football teams could see little change or a huge make-over when the Kentucky High School Athletic Association reveals its new realignment on Monday, Oct. 18.

    The proposed look, which will have little change other than a tweak or two with the final version, was released on Monday by the KHSAA.

    Campbellsville would not need to throw away its past films of Berea, Lynn Camp and Williamsburg since that trio will remain in the Eagles’ Class A district with Clinton County going to Class AA.

  • 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.
