  • Woodford County works overtime...

    OWENTON – Never let anyone tell you that a district championship match is meaningless. Especially when Anderson County and Woodford County get together to decide girls' soccer supremacy in the 25th District.

    It is true that both had already qualified for the 13th Region tournament earlier in the week. And it is also true that most observers have felt all season long that the teams at the top of the region, including the old border rivals, are very even, underscored by when the teams battled to a 0-0 tie back in early September.

    But meaningless?

  • Tough night for Anderson soccer

    UPDATED, Saturday, Oct. 16, 5:15 p.m. 

    Thursday was a tough night for Anderson County soccer as both the Lady Bearcats and Bearcats tasted defeat in district tournament play.

    The Anderson girls saw their reign as 25th District champions come to an end as Woodford County's Taylor Kelly arced a shot in from 40 yards with five minutes to go in the second overtime period giving Woodford a 2-1 win in the championship game at Owen County.

  • Lady Bearcat soccer advances to...

    The Anderson County High School girls' soccer team advanced to the regional tournament for the 11th time in the last 12 years with an impressive 4-0 victory over Franklin County in the District 25 semi-finals at Owen County.

    After enduring delays totaling nearly 90 minutes because of a lightning delay and overtime in the first game, Anderson took control 15 minutes in when Elizabeth Mason guided a loose ball to the net.

  • COLUMN: Automatic

    We have almost come to think of them as automatic, these extra point things in football.

    Line it up and kick. You can count on that one point as surely as you can count on a politician lying.

    Unless, of course, something goes haywire. You can hit 100 straight extra points and no one thinks a thing about it. Miss one, and everyone remembers. It's just the nature of the beast.

    Just ask Bullitt Central. And ask Anderson County, for that matter.

  • Faster than a speeding Bullitt

    There is probably no truth to the rumor that Blake Curtsinger lined the Anderson County football field last week.

    But there is little doubt that Curtsinger practically owned that piece of real estate Friday night to lead Anderson to a 28-27 overtime win over Bullitt Central.

    The junior ran for 113 yards and a touchdown, caught a scoring pass, and helped block a crucial extra point in overtime that turned out to be the break Anderson needed. For good measure, Curtsinger was the holder when Bill Rose drilled the extra point that was the difference in the final margin.

  • Lady Bearcats have unfinished...

    It would not be inappropriate if the Anderson County girls' soccer team showed up to play a tournament game wearing purple.

    And not because it would be a mix of the red and blue that make up the school colors.

    “We were on the Purple Panthers,” Anderson senior Hannah Pritchert says with a smile. “My dad was the coach and just about all of our class was on that team.”

  • Bearcats survive Bullitt in...

    Blake Curtsinger turned in the finest game of his varsity career and Bill Rose's extra point was the difference as Anderson County defeated visiting Bullitt Central, 28-27 in high school football action Friday night at Hollie Warford Stadium.

    Curtsinger,a junior,  lined up at running back for the first time since his freshman year and ran for 113yards and a touchdown, caught a touchdown pass and got a piece of Bullitt Central's failed extra point attempt in overtime that put Anderson in position to win in the first possession.

  • Lady Cats 'that close...

    Just seconds after time had run out on Anderson County's upset bid against West Jessamine last Wednesday, Lady Bearcat assistant coach Jamey Earnest took out his frustration with a kick toward the nearest goal.

    Fittingly, it barely missed. The ball bounced, then went just inches over the crossbar.

    In the second half alone, the Lady Bearcats saw one shot carom off the cross bar, another hit an upright

    Just like so many other chances the home-standing Lady Bearcats had to knock off the state's top-ranked team.
