  • Losses keep Big Blue hoopla at...

    Following a hiccup, Kentucky’s Phase Two began at Auburn last week, fending off Big Blue hoops hoopla another week.

    Losing at South Carolina was a hiccup. Phase Two began on a wave of platinum numbers – zero penalties, first time since the quarterback was named Pookie 18 years ago; zero turnovers; 100 yards-plus rushing from two backs; A touchdown from each of three quarterbacks; and, defense that smothered Auburn and muffled a crowd of 85,000 leaving celebration to a gleeful section of blue-clads.

  • Lackluster Bears trampled by...

    Spencer County’s recipe for gridiron success this season has included a strong running game and keeping the game close until the final moments. While it’s not always produced a win, the Bears have made a habit out of having games come down to the final moments of the fourth quarter.

    That was until Friday night, when the Bears cooked up something much less appealing in a 28-0 loss on the road at North Oldham.

    Looking back at the ingredients and it’s no wonder Coach Wes Napper said it “was by far our worst performance of the year.”

    The 2009 Spencer County High School Varsity Volleyball is on the move.  The 2009 Lady Bears season started in early June with grueling conditioning and camp.  Immediately following tryouts were the Bluegrass state games where many coaches took notice of the hustle and quick attacking Lady Bears.

  • Bears botch last-minute win

    Last football season, down 21-17 with just over a minute left, Spencer County went 98 yards on a pass play –after a near safety just a play before – and then scored on a 1-yard run to beat Western Hills.

    Friday night, Bears quarterback Erico Smith connected with Brian Harris for a 19-yard touchdown with 3:50 left in the game, and it looked like Spencer County was going to come back on the Wolverines yet again.

     But this time, the Bears only tied the game at 21 and the Wolverines had plenty of time to make up for last year’s mistake.
