  • North football sees district chances slip away in loss at Collins

    SHELBYVILLE – If it could've gone wrong for North Oldham football Friday night, it did.

    That's how Mustang coach Billy Martin diagnosed North's 35-6 loss at Titan Stadium, a defeat that cost the Mustangs a chance to win Class 4A, District 3 outright.

    North (6-3, 3-1 district) instead finishes second in the district behind Collins (7-2, 4-0) and must go on the road if it makes the second round of the playoffs.

  • CUB Player of the Week
  • Vicich earns Region 8 tourney MVP

    SHELBYVILLE – Most of what Jad Vicich does for North Oldham's boys soccer team doesn't show up on the stat sheet.

    “He's only got, I think, two goals and two assists on the season,” North coach Chad Niedert said.

    That number is actually two goals and one assist, according to the team page on the KHSAA website. But what Vicich does is make life miserable for opposing offenses from his spot as a defensive midfielder.

  • North boys hold on to beat South, win region

    SHELBYVILLE – North Oldham boys soccer was in a familiar position at halftime Thursday night.

    Just eight days before, North had led South 1-0 at halftime of the District 29 final. The Dragons roared back with three second half goals to win 3-1.

    The Mustangs were again up 1-0 Thursday in the championship game of the Region 8 tournament at Collins High School. Only this time, things ended differently than before.

  • OC Girls Repeat as Region 8 Champs

     For the first 55 minutes of the Region 8 Girls Soccer Championship, it looked as if the third meeting between Oldham County and South Oldham would emulate the first, a 1-0 victory by the Lady Colonels (21-0-1).

    But the next six minutes proved OC’s repeat as regional champs would be more like the second meeting between the two schools, as the Lady Colonels routed South 4-0 for the second time this year.

    Junior Kasey Kraus opened up the floodgates for OC with 26 minutes left in the second period, scoring the first goal of the game.

  • North, South boys meet for fourth time tonight

    South Oldham was in a similar situation one year ago at this time.

    The Dragons had split their two regular season matchups with Oldham County and beaten the Colonels in the District 29 title. The teams met a fourth time in the Region 8 championship game, and South beat OC 2-0.

    This season South split two regular season games with North Oldham and beat the Mustangs 3-1 in last week's District 29 final. Now the Dragons will play North a fourth time, with everything on the line.

  • Faith event puts rivalries aside

    When students from the county schools meet on a football field, it’s usually about competition. Last Wednesday was different.
