    The junior quarterback threw touchdown passes of 28 and 6 yards to go along with scoring runs of 1, 41 and 40 yards. His last scoring run put Anderson up 47-33 midway through the fourth quarter and effectively sealed the win.

    Russell finished with 159 yards passing and 112 rushing.

  • Scrap gets at ’em as...

    CRESTWOOD – Scrap showed up for a fight Friday night but this time it was the Dragons that had to be saying “Rut roh!”

    “He loved watching Scooby Doo when he was little, and we started calling him Scrap,” Sue Harvey said of her son, Kendrick, now a senior running back for Anderson County.

    Scrap, as in Scrappy Doo, Scooby’s smallish, but fearless nephew?

  • Bullitt Central stuns Bearcats

    Bullitt Central used a punishing second half attack and converted three crucial short yardage situations on fourth down to dampen Anderson County's homecoming Friday night, 39-33.

    Bullitt Central rallied from an early 14-0 deficit to take a 21-20 halftime lead, then kept the ball for nearly 16 minutes in the second half. Bullitt Central outgained the Bearcats 296-153 in the final 24 minutes.

  • 'Quality opponent'...

    When Anderson County's 2008 football schedule was announced, there was little doubt about which game would be selected for homecoming.

    Sitting neatly right in the middle of the schedule was Bullitt Central, a team that went 3-8 a year ago and one that the Bearcats whipped 21-7 in Shepherdsville. With only four home games, the Cougars looked to fit the bill very nicely.

    Someone forgot to tell Bullitt Central.

  • Anderson showcased at Marshall...

    If there were any lingering doubts concerning Anderson County's place among the Kentucky girls' soccer elite, the Lady Bearcats answered them with a strong showing in the Marshall County Showcase, held at Benton in far western Kentucky Friday and Saturday.

    The event was not a tournament, as it had been in the past. A decision by the Kentucky High School Athletic Association to rescind some expanded schedules prompted the tournament to adopt a showcase format with some of the best teams in the state squaring off.

  • Gallant upset bid comes up short

    VERSAILLES - Woodford County survived a scare from Anderson County but had enough firepower to post a 3-1 victory in boys' soccer action at Woodford County Park Thursday night.

    The 10th-ranked Yellow Jackets used a relentless attack that was able to overcome Anderson's aggressive play to go 10-1-1 on the year and 5-0 in 25th District play. Anderson fell to 7-3-3 and 3-1 in district action.

  • HIGH SCHOOL GOLF: Gillis, White...
