  • Bearcats rout Montgomery, returning home for playoffs

    MOUNT STERLING -- You know things are going right on the football field when a team makes a turnover on the opponent’s side of the field but gets the ball back five yards further upfield on the very next play. 

    That’s what it was like for Anderson County Friday night. Actually, saying things were going right for the Bearcats would be like saying The Rolling Stones are a band.

    It’s a monumental understatement. 


    SHELBYVILLE – Dalton Wells didn’t have to wait to start the celebration.

    The Anderson County High School senior drove his penalty shot to the right side of the net. Before it had even nestled in the net, Wells had begun ripping his shirt off to set off a wild celebration never before seen in the history of Bearcat soccer.

    Wells’ shot gave Anderson a 4-2 lead with one kicker left in a tie-breaker shootout with host Collins in the 30th District tournament championship match last Thursday.

  • Bearcats host Madison Southern, battle for district title

    Even with the multitude of setbacks that have plagued the Anderson County High School football team this season, the Bearcats are in a position to capture their first district championship since 2013 Friday night.

    It won’t be easy.

    Madison Southern, the defending Class 5A, District 6 champ, has been the favorite to repeat all season and has given no reason to think otherwise. The Eagles have won six of eight games -- the losses were to Tates Creek and Pulaski County -- and have won their two district games by identical 49-7 scores.
