    After all, the speedy senior wingback went into Friday night averaging 133.7 rushing yards and 2.7 rushing touchdowns on just 8.3 carries in North Oldham’s first three games.

  • Football: Oldham wins first home game in two years

    BUCKNER – There was a weird feeling hanging around Buckner Friday night.

    For the first time in two years, the Oldham County football team was leaving Bell Field with a victory, having just defeated North Bullitt, 55-54, thanks to a touchdown with 10 seconds left to play.

    To hear the players themselves describe it, the elation of a come-from-behind, well-fought victory was foreign to the county's biggest school.

    “We kind of forgot what it felt like to win,” senior wide receiver Justin Viar said.

    Not anymore.

    PROSPECT – North Oldham had a steep task in topping its 2013 Oldham Cup performance when it hit the course to defend the title last week.

    One year ago the Mustangs won the three-day, three-team title against Oldham County and South Oldham by scoring seven-and-a-half points out of a possible eight on the final day, a competition record.

    North beat its own feat on Sept. 18 at Nevel Meade Golf Course, winning all eight of its matches to secure the Cup for the seventh time. North totaled 14 points overall, with OC claiming eight and South two.

    No. 8 South (10-2) has scored five goals in each of its last two games (including a 5-1 win at Nelson County Monday night) after losing 8-4 at No. 3 West Jessamine on Saturday – a loss that broke an eight-match winning streak.

  • The Matchup: Arien Beasley

    Arien Beasley was a middle schooler when he realized basketball might not be the best sport for his style.

    “I got to my seventh and eighth grade year and I started running people over all the time,” Beasley said. “…My family and coaches just realized that maybe I should start playing football.”

    Football has worked out just fine.
