North Oldham

  • Mustangs finally fall in state quarters

    LEXINGTON – North Oldham's penalty kick magic finally ran out Saturday night.

    A Mustang team that had twice kept its season alive on PK shootouts the past two weeks lost one 2-1 Saturday in the state quarterfinals. North fell 1-0 to Bowling Green at Bell Stadium at Henry Clay High School.

    The loss ends the winningest season in school history for the Mustangs (20-5-1). The state quarterfinal loss also marks North's deepest postseason run.

  • Fourth time's the charm

    INDEPENDENCE – The schedule will show 2013's Oldham County volleyball team lost three of its four matches against rival for North Oldham. All the Lady Colonels will care about is that the one win came in the team's most important meeting of the year.

    OC finally took down the Lady Mustangs Thursday night in the Region 8 volleyball championship, 3-1, at Joe Stark Memorial Gymnasium at Simon Kenton High School.

  • North wins semi-state PK shootout

    GOSHEN – Penalty kick karma remains squarely in the North Oldham boys soccer team's corner.

    The Mustangs scored their only regulation goal on a penalty kick, then won a PK shootout to clinch a 2-1 win over Central Hardin Monday in the semi-state round of the KHSAA boys soccer tournament.

    North's victory came in its first-ever state tournament game. The Mustangs (20-4-1) clinched a spot in the state quarterfinals, where they'll meet Bowling Green at 5 p.m. Saturday at Henry Clay High School in Lexington.

  • North Oldham hosts C. Hardin tonight in state tourney

    GOSHEN – Another new chapter can be written in a historic North Oldham boys soccer season tonight.

    The Region 8 champion Mustangs (19-4-1) will host Region 5 champion Central Hardin (21-1-2) tonight in the first round of the KHSAA state soccer tournament.

    The game will be the first state game in history North's history and comes four days after the Mustangs beat South Oldham 1-0 to win the school's first District 29 title. Beating the Bruins would add to a season that's already seen the North set records for wins in a season.

  • Region 8 volleyball bracket drawn

    Both North Oldham and Oldham County volleyball found out their roads Saturday to a potential fourth meeting in this week's Region 8 championship.

    The District 29 champion Lady Mustangs (24-9) will meet Collins (18-9) at 6:45 Monday night at Simon Kenton High School in Independence in the first round of the Region 8 tournament. District 29 runner-up OC (28-8) will open its region tournament against Shelby County (10-10) at 6:45 p.m. Tuesday at Simon Kenton.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • North Boys Golf Finishes 7th at State Tournament
