  • Breathitt bests CHS 16-6 in...

    The Campbellsville High School Eagles kept the game surprisingly close but still dropped a 16-6 decision to Class 3-A Breathitt County 16-6 on Saturday night in the first game of the second annual Forcht Bank Bowl on Dave Fryrear Field.

    “I was pleased we hung in there and continued to battle,” CHS coach Jay Cobb remarked.

    After a scoreless first quarter, the Bobcats took advantage of CHS’ poor field position and recorded a safety with just over five minutes left in the half.

  • Smith shoots net 135 to claim...

    E.G. Brown finished third at 139 while Daryl Gardner (140) was fourth and Tom Milby (141) fifth in the 60-man field.

  • Can the local gridiron teams...

    An old Major League Baseball saying was “You’re going to win one-third of your games and lose one-third of your games no matter what. It’s what you do in the other third that determines how good of a team you are every season.”

    That assumption may hold true for the local high school football squads as they begin the 2010 campaign on Friday for Taylor County and Saturday for Campbellsville with first-year head coaches.

    Let’s start with the Cardinals who begin play tomorrow at Adair County under Curtis Cotton.

  • Cards come up short in opener at...

    Adair County ran almost twice as many plays as Taylor County and held off the Cardinals’ go-ahead efforts to squeak out a 20-19 home victory on Friday night in Columbia.

    “Our pass protection and quarterback play was pretty good,” admitted Taylor County’s Curtis Cotton in his first regular-season game as head coach. “But, I didn’t do a good enough job getting the ball to Blake Dudgeon and we just didn’t have the ball enough.”
