  • Bearcats squander chances in loss to Montgomery

    Anderson County was unable to finish the job when it had to Friday night.

    The Bearcats had seven chances in the red zone but largely came up empty in a 14-10 loss to Montgomery County at Warford Stadium.

    The loss put a serious dent in Anderson's hopes for a district championship or hosting a first round play off game. Anderson can still achieve both, but will have to win at Madison Southern next Friday and possibly have some help.

  • A lot to like about win at Woodford

    There was quite a bit to like about Anderson County’s win over Woodford County Friday night.

    To be sure, there was reason to be a bit concerned as the Bearcats saw a 28-0 lead dwindle to the final 35-26 score. Anderson had played about as well as it can in forging the big lead.

    The Bearcats looked like a team that had spent the last 14 days fuming over the loss to Dunbar that should not have happened.

  • Tough course tames Bearcat golfers at state

    BOWLING GREEN – The leader board was saying Anderson County was right up there with the big boys at the state golf tournament last Tuesday, but those watching the Bearcats in real time knew differently.

    After six holes, the Bearcats really were among the state’s best, standing seventh out of 24 teams and apparently with nowhere to go but up.


    VERSAILLES – The split personality the Anderson County football team displayed Friday night might have been cause for alarm, but for the Bearcats, all was well when the final horn sounded on Anderson’s 35-26 win at Woodford County.

    For almost 24 minutes, Anderson County looked like a team ready to make a run at its third regional championship in five years. The Bearcats were a team that looked like the one that had risen to as high as third in the state in the polls over a month ago.

  • Seniors bookend goals as Cats roar in home finale

    Ben Simmons could not have asked for a better finale.

  • Montgomery Co. storyline mirrors that of Woodford

    Things almost sound like an instant replay for Anderson County football this week.

    When the Bearcats were prepping for their game at Woodford County last Friday, they were getting ready for a team that had not beaten Anderson in years, had rarely come close over that time and, most importantly in the present, had to feel it had what it takes to beat the Bearcats in 2015.

    Montgomery County comes to town Friday with practically the same storyline.
