  • Marion stuns Bearcats on last second touchdown

     

    LEBANON -- Marion County's Bryson Bell corralled a 43-yard touchdown pass with 7.9 seconds to play to stun Anderson County 42-39 in Friday night football action.

    Bell wrestled Eric Miles' pass away from the Anderson defense to cap a wild shootout that had seen Anderson rally from an 18-point deficit. Jacob Russell's 33-yard touchdown pass to Dustin Combs with 1:43 to play gave Anderson a 39-35 lead, the Bearcats' first advantage of the night.

    "We had the game won but did not lock it down," said Anderson coach Mark Peach.

  • COLUMN: Local hunters make large catches

    A lot of things are falling in October. Leaves, gas prices and the stock market but still not much rain.  The dry weather sure has made the deer and turkey woods crispy to say the least.

    The Lilly clan has not had much luck in the harvesting department but it hasn't been for lack of trying. We've all seen deer and turkeys just not much worth taking out of the population.

  • Tourney time is the best time of the year

    There’s just something about tournament season.

    It really doesn’t make much difference which sport it is, but when you get to the sifting process that determines a district, then regional, then the state champions the heart quickens a bit more, players might try to put more oomph behind a ball or find a way to run just a step faster.

    It’s because that for the most part, the post-season is one-and-done. Lose and go home.

  • Missed chances dampen Bearcats' district dream

    Friday's rains did not dampen Anderson County's district title hopes nearly as much as Dylan Underwood and dropped passes.

    A senior running back, Underwood punished the Bearcats with 173 yards on 22 carries and scored the clinching touchdown as Oldham County defeated Anderson 35-21 at Hollie Warford Stadium. Coupled with Jeffersontown's loss to Grant County, the win gave Oldham the Class 5A, District 4 championship.

    Both teams are now 6-2 on the year. Oldham is 3-0 in district play, Anderson 3-1.

    Hopper, who has one leg and is wheelchair bound, lives in an apartment building that caught fire when a space heater ignited a pile of clothes on the second floor.
