Wednesday sports update

Not a lot going on right now locally, so it might be a good time to look around the area at some things happening.
First, in high school football, no one predicted Anderson County would have an easy time winning a district title for the second consecutive season. The Bearcats were realigned into a district that includes East Jessamine, which has had a solid program for some time, and Franklin County, which has enough speed that the Flyers are a threat to beat anyone.
Everyone who follows Kentucky high school football knew those two teams would be good.
But the surprise of the district might be Woodford County, which has started the year at 3-0 after shellacking Henry County 42-0 last weekend.
Before the season, Woodford coach Steve Stonebraker told me that his team's work ethic and attitude were its main strengths. Those traits can certainly mask many other shortcomings and Woodford has some victories to show for it.
In fact, when you look at the district race, which will begin on Sept. 23, it looks like there are no pushovers in the district. It's going to be a very interesting journey.
Keep watching.

Games tonight
The Anderson County boys' soccer team plays Newport Central Catholic in the Cardinal Cup at Scott County. A year ago, Anderson felt it played the socks of NewCath but lost 2-0. Anderson is a much different team than a year ago, however, so it will be interesting to see what happens.
The Anderson girls' soccer team hosts Owen County in a district matchup, but the Lady Bearcats will be heavily favored.

Check back on Thursday for more sports talk.
