    Kentucky waterfowl hunters now have additional days in September to pursue teal.

    A teal-only season that is new for 2014 runs from Sept. 22-25. A combined wood duck and teal season opens Sept. 17 and closes Sept. 21.

    Hunters may harvest up to six teal a day during the experimental teal-only season.

  • Records can be deceptive

    It would be easy to look at Mercer County’s 1-3 record and conclude that Anderson County a shoo-in to get a win in high school football action Friday night.

    Such thinking would be foolish. The Titans will present a major challenge to the Bearcats in a renewal of a rivalry that dates to 1963.

    “Mercer, like us, has played a very tough non-district schedule,” Anderson coach Mark Peach says. “They are a very good football team.”

  • Turnovers cook Bearcats in loss...

    Five turnovers did Anderson County in Friday night.

    Boyle County intercepted five Bearcat passes on its way to a 48-26 win over Anderson in high school football action at Warford Stadium.

    Boyle only turned two of the thefts into touchdowns, but four of the five picks happened inside Boyle territory, thwarting Anderson scoring chances.

    Meanwhile, the Bearcats forced turnovers on three of Boyle's first four possessions. Unfortunately for the Bearcats, they could only convert one of the Boyle turnovers into touchdowns.

  • Pumped crowd means playoff prep

    It had been a while since we had seen a student section storm the field after a team defeated Anderson County.

    But Mark Peach took note Friday night when a raucous South Oldham student section rushed the field at Dragon Stadium. They were celebrating South’s first win over Anderson in 10 tries.

    Two schools, roughly the same size, have been playing football off and on since 1993, yet South had never won until Friday night. There had been close ones and there had been blowouts, but every time the result had been the same.

    Anderson had always won.

  • Bearcats upbeat despite setback

    CRESTWOOD – Even though the possibility of a perfect season had been erased and Anderson County might not be viewed as positively in the upcoming polls, Mark Peach was upbeat Friday night.

    The Bearcat coach had just seen his charges drop a 52-43 shootout at the South Oldham corral, but he was not dour or even down.

    The teams combind for 13 touchdowns, 45 first downs and 1,054 yards.

    “South Oldham is a great football team,” he said, “but guess what? So are we. I mean it was 45-43 and we had our hands on the ball.
