  • OC Football snaps losing streak

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – Playing in a torrential downpour, Oldham County was able to wash away a three-game losing skid Friday night.

    The Colonels turned in a dominating performance, rushing for 370 yards in a 33-0 blowout of North Bullitt before a sparse crowd at C.T. Collins Field.

    “It’s good, I’m glad that we got it after three losses,” quarterback James Harding said. “It feels like we’re playing well now.”
