  • Bearcats rout Spencer in season opener

    BARDSTOWN – The Anderson County football team opened its season in an impressive showing on Saturday with a 42-13 victory over Spencer County.

    Most of the damage from Anderson was done in the second quarter, where the Bearcats scored four touchdowns. That gave Anderson a 34-6 lead at halftime, a lead it would comfortably hold for the rest of the game.

    “It was a total team effort,” Bearcat head coach Mark Peach said after the game. “It wasn’t pretty, it wasn’t perfect but it’s your first time out.”

  • Anderson County vs. Spencer County preview

    Anderson County’s first game of the season will be against an opponent that’s familiar but distant all at the same time.

    This Saturday night at 7:30 p.m., the Bearcats will kick off the 2019 season against Spencer County. Despite the two teams being in the same district in practically every other sport, the Bears and Bearcats haven’t met on the gridiron since 2010.

  • Breaking down the Bearcats

    Everyone who knows Anderson County football probably knows by now that the Bearcats went 10-0 in the regular season last year.

    They also probably know that the team was beaten by Highlands in the second round of the state playoffs.

    This year, people might set their expectations for the Bearcats based off all the success they had last year. Can they dominate the regular season again? Can they make it past the second round in the playoffs, something they haven’t done since 2014? Can they win a district title against some new and stern competition?

  • The return of Zach Labhart

    When it comes to sports, Anderson County running back Zach Labhart admits he’s not very patient, which can be a good and bad thing.

    It’s a good thing when Labhart is on the field. When he receives handoffs in the backfield, he doesn’t sit around in the backfield and dance his way to a first down, like Le’Veon Bell. He bursts through holes the moment he sees them and runs through or away from defenders who can’t corral him.

  • New playoff format in effect for this season

    The era of cross bracketing in the KHSAA state football playoffs is over, at least for the near future.

    This offseason, the KHSAA changed the format for its football state playoffs, which will now feature intra-district matchups in the first two rounds instead of the cross-bracketing format that had been in place for years.
