  • Davenport elected La Grange Mayor

    La Grange will have its third mayor in as many terms come January, but a familiar face will occupy the office.

    Longtime councilman Joe Davenport defeated Brian Oerther, 57 to 42 percent, to take the helm of Oldham County’s largest city, with 84 percent of the city turning out to vote in the race.

    The race was a referendum on several recent city council votes, including the occupational tax, which Oerther opposed. But voters decided to stick with Davenport over Oerther, who pegged himself as “outside the box” when it came to ideas for the city.

  • KHSAA boys soccer quarterfinals: South breaks through to semis for first time

    LEXINGTON – South Oldham is playing deeper into the postseason than ever before thanks to a group of veterans who’ve been playing together for years and a newcomer who didn’t join the team until this season.

  • KHSAA girls soccer quarterfinals: Rowland gets record, South gets to semifinals

    LEXINGTON – Before Saturday, two South Oldham girls soccer milestones had been in place for nearly 15 years.

    Both of those statements are now history.

    The Dragons (7-2) finally prevailed 49-42 in the third overtime when Ethan Reinert intercepted a Cameron Dukes pass to seal the win in Shepherdsville.

    Reinert, a senior, had caught a two-point conversion pass moments earlier that tied the game at 42 at the end of the second overtime period.

    North’s goose-egg victory came on the heels of shutouts on Oct. 10 against Waggener (53-0), Oct. 17 against Atherton (49-0) and last week against Collins (43-0). The Mustangs haven’t allowed a point since a 21-13 loss at Spencer County on Sept. 26.

    JEFFERSONTOWN – Mike Shatzer is still in the early stages of building Oldham County’s football program to his liking.

    But for one wintry night at a nearly-empty stadium, the Colonels got a glimpse of what they hope might be the future, convincingly beating an opponent and having some fun along the way.

    Quarterback James Harding threw two touchdown passes to Carson Axtell and ran for another as OC beat Jeffersontown 35-14 on the road Friday night.

    It’s tune-up week for the county’s three football programs.

    North Oldham, Oldham County and South Oldham will all play their regular season finales Friday before beginning the state playoffs on Nov. 7.

    For OC and South, Friday is a chance to fine-tune things and go into the playoffs with some momentum.

    North will have that objective Friday too, but can also improve its playoff seeding with a win and a little help from a school in a neighboring county.
