  • 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.

    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.

    Describing Anderson County's 42-7 rout of Henry County on Friday night as impressive would be inadequate.

    The Bearcats ruined the previously unbeaten Wildcats' homecoming with a dominating performance no one outside the Anderson locker room could have envisioned.

    The Bearcats piled up 511 yards of offense and limited Henry to 188. The Bearcats put 42 points up on a team that had been giving up just six a game, good enough for second in the state.

    Football:  Mustangs whip East Oldham

    The Anderson County Middle School football team shut down what Coach Chris Glass called “a wide open East Oldham offense” in a 14-0 road win last Tuesday.

    The Mustangs scored on a 20-yard pass from Zach Carmichael to Houston Page, then Carmichael found Ross Cox for the two-point conversion. The Mustangs tacked on another score when Nathan Cox picked up a blocked field goal attempt and ran it 80 yards for a touchdown.

    The Anderson County boys' soccer team will take the field in the biggest match of the season Thursday night when the Bearcats host third-ranked Woodford County. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.

    Woodford possesses one of the most powerful teams in Kentucky, having scored 56 goals and giving up seven in the latest statistics provided by the Kentucky High School Athletic Association. The Yellow Jackets' 11-1-1 record has been blemished only by a 2-1 shootout loss to West Jessamine in the Colts' tournament and a scoreless tie with East Jessamine.
