  • Bears flat against Cougars

    The Spencer County Bears will kickoff the 2008 season this Friday night when they play host to Bullitt Central at 7:30. It will be an opportunity to not only avenge a loss from last season, but to make up for a lackluster performance in their final preseason scrimmage last week.

    If the Bears are to get their season off on the right track, they’ll need to hit the field fired up against the Cougars, something that was not evident when they hosted Montgomery county for a scrimmage last Friday.
