    It’s finally fall and time for football. Sure, the high school regular season is half-way complete, but things will get interesting in the next few weeks as the Bears have games against all three district opponents looming ahead.

    Last week the Bears had their open date, a good time to examine the first part their season, mend some wounds and prepare for the final stretch.

    With last Saturday’s fiasco(s) in mind, a twist on a Thomas Paine refrain. “These are the times that try men’s soles.”

    Pummeled by Florida, and Utah and Navy respectively, will the Wildcats, Cards and Hilltoppers pack up their cleats and beat a hasty retreat to the rear?

    Could be.

  • Bears win penalty-riddled game

    It wasn’t their best game of the year, but the Spencer County Bears played well enough to score a 30-14 win over the visiting Bethlehem Eagles Friday night.

    Sure, they racked up some impressive numbers, such as gaining almost 400 yards rushing for the evening, but it was the 12 penalties for well over 100 yards that has the coaching staff planning how to utilize the much-needed off week coming up.

    “You are always happy with a win, but we’re definitely not happy with the performance of our offensive unit,” said Head Coach Wes Napper after the game.
