  • Franklin, Cotton lead Cats to...

    Of all the big plays Blake Franklin made in Anderson County’s 24-14 win over George Rogers Clark Friday night, the game-changer might have been one in which he recorded no statistic.

    That’s saying something, since the junior running back-defensive back scored three touchdowns and a two-point conversion, gained 133 yards rushing and broke up a pass. There is no truth to the rumor that Franklin lined the home field last week and took up tickets before the game.

  • Defensive mistakes cost Lady Cats

    The best thing for Anderson County about its girls’ soccer match with Harrison County last Wednesday was it was not a loss for the Lady Bearcats.

    The worst thing? It wasn’t a win on a night when Anderson seemed to dominate.

    Harrison County’s Kelby Gaunce outmaneuvered three Anderson defenders then shot a bullet past Anderson goalie Billie Clark with 19:12 to play, leaving a frustrated Anderson team settling for a 2-2 tie in its home opener.
