  • COLUMN: J-Town is not your...

    A homecoming opponent is supposed to be a football game against one of those teams that is the equivalent of an open date.

    You know what I am talking about. You look at the schedule, pick out one of your home games in the middle of the year and say, “This one is the one that we should be able to throw our helmets on the field, have a good time, win and then go dancing.”

    The official homecoming-picker must have had some blinders on when that choice was Jeffersontown.

  • Nothing settled in district...

    Nothing was settled in the seedings for the District 25 boys' soccer tournament as Franklin County and Anderson County battled to a 2-2 tie Tuesday night at the Anderson field.

    Anderson's Martin Frantsvog and Franklin's Bryce Burton scored first half goals, then Bearcat Stephen Pulcifer and Flyer Oscar Urbina found the net in the second half. Urbina's game-tying goal came on a free kick with just under nine minutes left in the game.

    Franklin had had two goals taken down in the second half on offside calls.

  • Mud run!

    DRY RIDGE – Anderson County did nothing fancy. Mother Nature saw to that Friday night.

    Still, the Bearcats exploded for 20 third quarter points on the way to a 41-0 rout of host Grant County in the Class 5A, District 4 opener for both teams.

  • BOYS SOCCER: Woodford strikes...

    VERSAILLES – Third-ranked Woodford County scored three times in less thantwo minutes, then added a late insurance goal to defeat Anderson County 4-1 in boys' soccer action Thursday night.

    The game had originally been scheduled for Anderson County but heavy rains this week rendered the Bearcats' pitch unplayable. A decision to move the game to the Woodford field was announced earlier in the day on Thursday.

  • Mr. Russell's neighborhood

    NEW CASTLE -- On the stat sheet, it was almost an after-thought.

    Trailing 28-7 midway through the third quarter, Henry County was threatening to make a game of it again, having driven from its own nine yard line to the Anderson County six. A Henry receiver, who shall remain unnamed, took a short pass then turned up field.

    The stat sheet simply recorded a tackle by Jacob Russell.

    Reality recorded, “BOOM!” And a whole lot of “Ohhhh!” from the crowd.

    Welcome to the Mr. Russell’s Neighborhood.

  • ONLINE EXTRA: Lady Cat...

    The Anderson County volleyball team saw any chance at getting the top seed in the 28th District tournament go by the wayside, then absorbed a defeat from the defending regional champion in last week's action.

    Tuesday, Shelby County clinched the No. 1 slot in the upcoming district tournament with a three-game win over the Lady Bearcats in Shelbyville. Anderson almost seemed to be two different teams as the Lady Bearcats rolled to a 25-16 win in the first game, then saw Shelby come back with 25-13 and 25-14 wins.
