North Oldham

  • Boys soccer: Howard scores two, lifts South past North

    GOSHEN – Mason Howard is a player who gets overshadowed on his South Oldham team.

    Thirteen Dragons had scored going into South’s game at North Oldham on Oct. 1. Howard wasn’t one of them.

    But the senior midfielder put his name in the stat sheet in a big way against the Mustangs, scoring one goal with 25 minutes left in the match and another five minutes later on a penalty kick. His two goals were the decisive moments in a 2-1 Dragon victory.

  • Volleyball: North knocks off OC

    BUCKNER – North Oldham coach Brett Versen has had an eventful couple of weeks.

    On Sept. 15 his wife gave birth to their first daughter, Chaney Elizabeth.

    Ever since then Versen has had to balance life as a new father with his duties as first-year coach of the No. 15 Lady Mustangs.

    “It’s been a lot going on,” he said. “But it’s awesome.”

  • Boys golf: Shamrocks nip Mustangs for second

    PPROSPECT – The race to watch Tuesday at Nevel Meade Golf Course was the one for second place.

    St. Xavier obliterated the field at the Region 6 Tournament, shooting a 276. But each region is allowed two entrants into the state tournament, and the second spot was up for grabs between Trinity and North Oldham.

    One year ago at Midland Trail in Louisville it was the Mustangs who beat the Shamrocks, 305 to 306, for that runner-up spot and state tournament berth.

    All three county girls golf teams saw their seasons come to an end Monday afternoon in the Region 5 Tournament at Midland Trail in Louisville.

    Sacred Heart shot a 300 to win the tournament. Shelby County (329) took the region’s second spot in the upcoming state tournament.

    Oldham County (421) was the highest-finishing of the county teams, coming in 10th.

    Jaclyn Hampton shot a team-best 97 for the Lady Colonels.

    South Oldham (456) came in 13th. Molly Bebelaar led the way with an 89.

  • Girls soccer: North tops South, finishes county sweep

    CRESTWOOD – Playing in a district with Oldham County and South Oldham, North Oldham’s girls have been overshadowed in the past.

    The Lady Mustangs have sat and watched as the Lady Colonels and Lady Dragons both represented their district in the Region 8 Tournament in 2011, 2012 and 2013.

    North stopped that trend over the last week.

    The Lady Mustangs won 1-0 at South on Monday night at Dragon Stadium, four nights after beating OC 2-1 in Goshen.

  • Football: Mustangs blow chances, drop district opener

    TAYLORSVILLE – Several missed opportunities to score turned into one big missed opportunity for North Oldham to score a road win in its district opener.

    The Mustangs left 14 points on the field at Spencer County and lost 21-13 to the Bears Friday night in their first district game.

    Class 4-A, No. 7 North (3-2) missed two field goals and an extra point. The Mustangs also came away empty on a 1st and goal chance from the Spencer 1-yard line late in the first quarter.

  • Girls soccer: Youngsters step up, North beats OC in PK's

    GOSHEN – Freshmen and sophomores didn’t play like inexperienced players for North Oldham on Sept. 25.

    As a result, a young Lady Mustang squad got its first win over cross-town rival Oldham County in nearly eight years.

    Sophomore Emma Boyd tied the match with a late penalty kick and hit another during a shootout. Freshman goalkeeper Katelyn Kellogg saved two OC shots during that penalty shootout, including the one that clinched a 3-2 shootout edge and 2-1 victory.

  • Football: North, South start district play

    The Class 4A No. 7 Mustangs (3-1) will play the first of their four District 3 games at Spencer County (2-2) at 7:30 p.m. Friday.

    Class 5A No. 6 South (3-1) will start the defense of its 2013 District 5 crown when it goes to Hebron to take on Conner (0-4) at 7:30 Friday night.

  • Volleyball: North beats South, sets up OC showdown

    GOSHEN – In order to set up a winner-take-all district match next week against Oldham County, North Oldham needed to take care of business at home Tuesday against South Oldham.

    The No. 14 Lady Mustangs did just that, sweeping the Lady Dragons 3-0 (25-17, 25-7, 25-21).

    North and No. 5 OC are now both 2-0 against South and Trimble County, meaning the winner of their matchup Tuesday in Buckner will claim the No. 1 seed for next month’s District 29 tournament.

  • Girls soccer: North falls to Manual in final district tune-up
