    Somehow, Anderson County found an offense Saturday.

    The Lady Bearcats, who had struggled to score at times during the 2014 season, jumped to a 4-0 first half lead, then held on to beat visiting Simon Kenton, considered one of the Eighth Region’s better teams, in high school soccer action.

    Anderson’s 4-2 victory was easily the Lady Bearcats’ top showing of the season.

Meanwhile the Bearcat offense methodically put up 310 yards and totally controlled the line of scrimmage, The Bearcats punted just once and that play was erased by a roughing the kicker penalty against Mercer.

    Work, family and school commitments can leave little free time in a day, but hunters can help themselves by carving out some time to scout an area.

    Kentucky’s archery season for deer is underway with the crossbow, youth-only firearm, muzzleloader and modern gun deer seasons still to come. So there’s time to find a place to hunt and scout it.

    I got a phone call with some good news while putting this month’s outdoor column together. Justin Tinsley called to let me know my big 13-pointer from last gun season is just about ready to be picked up at his taxidermy shop.

    Carlton learned last Thursday that he had been selected for the NAIA Hall of Fame for his exploits during three years at Georgetown College.

  • Turnovers doom Bearcat bid to...

    The degree of separation between the very good and the elite is rarely large. The margin for error among the very good who are chasing those elite is even smaller.

    Anderson County, one of those in the realm of very good, found that out Friday when it was trying to take down Boyle County, a program that has been in the highest echelon of Kentucky high school football for the last 15 years.

    The Bearcats turned the ball over five times, all via interceptions, as Boyle pulled away to a 48-26 win that was much closer than the score would indicate.

    Abram Gettlefinger was eight seconds behind Borwig but set a personal record as well, according to Buser.

  • SOCCER: Lady Bearcats explode...

    Anderson County clinched the top seed in the 30th District Tournament Monday night, defeating visiting Collins, 5-2, in girls’ high school soccer action.

    Trailing 2-1 late in the first half, Anderson rallied for a tie at the break, then totally dominated the second 40 minutes to win going away.

    Anderson improved to 6-6-1 on the season, but most importantly, the Lady Bearcats completed a perfect season in district play. Anderson won the district title in 2012, but was runner-up to Spencer County last year.
