  • Volleyball Bears go 1-4 in tournament

  • Spencer County battles to a tie with North Bullitt

    The Spencer County Bears fought to a 2-2 tie against North Bullitt last Thursday in a game that felt more like a loss because of the way the Eagles scored the tying goal late in the contest.

    With the Bears up 2-1 with less than 10 minutes remaining, a Spencer County player went down hard with a leg injury. There’s typically no stoppage of play in soccer when a player is injured, but unwritten rules of sportsmanship dictate that the ball is usually kicked out of bounds after a short period of time to allow the player to be tended to.

  • COLUMN: Brewer will be missed

    A familiar face will be missing at Spencer County High School sporting events. The passing of Roy Brewer last week did not go unnoticed in the community and at Friday’s football game, a special jersey bearing Brewer’s name was presented to his family as a moment of silence was observed in honor of the life-long fan of local sports.

  • COLUMN: WKU, Murray State red-faced 'Cats, Cards

    Season openers. Kentucky and Louisville. Last Thursday’s performances were evidence enough the Wildcats and Cardinals have no business opening a season against each other.

    Reviews from Thursday were, to be kind, a mixed bag. For Western Kentucky and Murray State ... let’s play two ... next one at our place.
    Ditto, Eastern Kentucky. The Colonels led Kansas State into the fourth quarter at Manhattan before losing 10-7.

  • COLUMN: Thursday kicks off NFL, fantasy football season

    Monday brought with it the year’s first truly fall-like temperatures and, with the smell of football in the air, another reminder that if I knew someone with a time machine, I’d go back to this season three years ago and politely punch myself in the face.

    You’re right, while I am usually that sarcastic, I’m not usually that violent – so let me explain.

    Three years ago, my husband of approximately two months asked if I would be interested in joining a fantasy football league with him and a few of his friends.

  • Lady Bears even record after two wins

    After enduring a murderous schedule to open the season, the Spencer County Lady Bears soccer team has won four games in a row and has evened its record to 5-5 after a Labor Day victory over Shelby County, 5-2 at home.

    The victory comes on the heels of last week’s 8-0 shut-out of Marion County.

    In that win, the Lady Bears got two goals from Bri Bonham, Hannah Jaggers and Libby Cox, and single goals by Madison Ratchford and Shelby Lurie as the girls put the game away early and enjoyed a 5-0 intermission lead.

  • Bears get 21-20 win

    The Spencer County Bears used a late-game goal-line stand to secure a thrilling 21-20 win over LaRue County on Friday night, and in doing so snapped a 19-game losing streak that spanned three seasons.

    First-year head coach Mike Marksbury got a little emotional in a postgame end zone huddle as he told his squad how important it was to finally get that monkey off their back, but was quick to remind them that the hard work must continue as the Bears look to turn their program around.
