  • PHOTO: Soccer team picks up win...

    Jacob Lanham advances the ball during recent action for the Spencer County Bears boys soccer team. The Bears are 2-8-1 on the season after a tough 2-1 loss on the road at Collins on Monday night. They did record a 7-4 victory over Ft. Knox last week, however. The boys will be hosting Jeffersontown on Wednesday evening and will be at Bullitt East on Thursday night.

  • Lady Bears ready for rematch...

    The Spencer County Lady Bears soccer team got off to a bit of a slow start this season, a combination of some early-season injuries and a very tough schedule. But since their 1-5 start to the season, the girls have reeled off six straight wins and are ready to test that improvement.

  • Bears nipped by Chargers 7-6

    It was heartbreak in Mt. Washington for the Spencer County Bears Friday night as a potential game-winning field goal with just 20 seconds remaining in the game was blocked, preserving a 7-6 win for the host Chargers.

  • COLUMN: Can Governor’s Cup...

    After a weekend of looking back, lamenting 9/11 tragedies, tributes and tears, time to look forward again.  
    In Kentucky this week, Governor’s Cup football. Annual Hatfields and McCoys bash for bragging rights and home front supremacy.
    A sign of the times and/or season prospects perhaps, but the traditional grand show of enthusiasm across the state seems muted by a bad mood, a case of transcendent grumps.
    Maybe a Kentucky autumn evening come Saturday, will change all that.

  • Volleyball Bears go 1-4 in...

  • Spencer County battles to a tie...

    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-...

    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,...

    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.
