  • FOOTBALL: Bearcats looking for...

    Just like nearly everyone thought it would, Anderson County's football game at East Jessamine on Friday night will play a major role in the Kentucky post-season landscape.

    But unlike the pre-season publications, including The Anderson News, which saw this one as the showdown for the district championship, it will just be for second place in Class 5A, District 6. And that is almost as big as winning the title.

  • BOYS' SOCCER: Gallant...

    Woodford County scored early in the second half, then hung on to beat host Anderson County, 1-0, in the boys' District 25 Soccer Tournament semi-finals last Wednesday.

    Woodford went on to take the district title with a 3-0 win over Western Hills the following night. The championship match was moved to Woodford after overnight rains left the Anderson pitch unplayable.

    The teams played to a scoreless draw in the first half with Anderson hanging tough with the highly regarded Yellow Jackets through the break.

  • VOLLEYBALL: Shelby ends Lady...

    Homestanding Shelby County ended Anderson County's hope of getting to the Eighth Region tournament with a straight-set win in the 30th District volleyball tournament last Tuesday. The Lady Rockets advanced to the district final with a 25-20, 25-22 win.

    Shelby fell to crosstown rival Collins in the final.

    Anderson ended the season at 12-23.

    Lady Bearcat Sierra Jones was named to the All-District team by the coaches.

    No other information had been made available to The Anderson News at press time.

  • GIRLS' SOCCER: Woodford...

    Few gave Anderson County's girls any kind of a chance against Woodford County in the District 25 soccer tournament final last Thursday.

    Woodford was, well, Woodford. That means a perennial Top 15 team, one that has, for the most part. And one that had beaten Anderson 3-0 during the regular season.

    To top things off, the district final, originally scheduled for Frankfort's Sower Soccer Complex, was moved to Woodford's home field after rains last weekend left that pitch unplayable in the eyes of the tournament organizers.

  • Timmons leads Franklin to romp...

     

     

    Franklin County's Ryan Timmons ran for 175 yards and three touchdowns on just 8 carries to lead Franklin County to a convincing 56-24 win over host Anderson County on Friday night.

  • Senior Night match called when...


    Senior Night for the Anderson County High School boys’ soccer team came to an abrupt end Thursday when the lead official called the game just 14 minutes into the contest.

    North Hardin was leading Anderson County 1-0 when Bearcat coach Brett Morris was issued a red card and ejected from the game after an argument with official Mike McCord. McCord then declared the game to be over despite pleas from both teams to continue the game.

    Anderson County athletic director Rick Sallee provided the name of the official to The Anderson News.

  • BOYS' SOCCER: Bearcats...

    When post-season comes, all that matters is to survive and advance.

    Anderson County learned that old truth Monday night when the Bearcats slipped past upset-minded Frankfort in the first round of the District 25 Tournament, being played on Anderson’s home field.

    Garrett Pritchert headed home a corner kick with 3:37 to play to give the Bearcats a 1-0 win.

    Anderson earned a shot at top-seeded Woodford County in the tournament semi-finals to be played tonight, Wednesday, Oct. 12 at 6 p.m.
