  • Colonels come up short in...

    BUCKNER — Oldham County had thrice had the lead in the game, but with 1:53 left in the game, the Colonels trailed visiting Jeffersontown by four.

    On fourth down and 10, backup senior quarterback Stephen Farrow avoided a sack at midfield, scrambled to his left and fighting off a tackle, somehow got a pass off to senior wide receiver Kerry Smith, 20-yards downfield.

    But the ball fell off Smith’s fingertips and the Chargers ran out the clock for a 40-36 win, Friday.

  • North gets past sluggish start...

    LOUISVILLE — For the first game of its KHSAA State Volleyball Tournament opener, North Oldham played the way it wanted to play and easily won.

    But in the second game, the Lady Mustangs got away from their gameplan, prompting coach Brian Jones to call a timeout, up 9-8 over Letcher County Central. North Oldham got past the Lady Cougars 2-0, but if it’s to advance further in the tournament at Bellarmine’s Knights Hall, there can’t be any letting off the throttle.

  • ‘Pass back’ does in Oldham

    BUCKNER--- According to the National federation of High schools, Rule 12, section 7, article 3: An indirect free kick is awarded to the opposing team, "If the goalkeeper touches the ball with his/her hands after it is deliberately kicked by a player to his/her own goalkeeper.” 

    In large part because of this rule and the referee’s call that Oldham County violated the ‘back pass’ rule, the Colonels’ season ended Monday night with a 2-0 loss to St. Xavier in the state sub-sectional round at Oldham County.

  • Oldham’s season ends in region...


    BUCKNER--- Penalty kicks were the only thing standing in the way of the Lady Colonels and a region girls’ soccer championship.

    Oldham County scored the game’s first goal, just into the second half, but Christian Academy of Louisville evened the score to send the game into extra time, where it would ultimately defeat the Lady Colonels 3-1 in penalty kicks.

  • Mustangs roll with ground game...

    GOSHEN – All junior running back Jacob Raymond wanted was a chance to get into the secondary.

    Thanks to a dominating performance from his offensive line, he got more than enough chances, rushing for 231 yards on 21 carries to lead North Oldham to a 42-13 district win over Spencer County.

    After the game, Raymond first gave praise to his offensive line, which calls itself, ‘the fist.’

    “Like always, they were great,” Raymond said. “Get a good push so I can get into the secondary and I can do what I do.”

  • Colonels can't convert...

    LOUISVILLE--- Turnovers are usually key to any victory.

    In the first five minutes, Oldham County forced two Ballard turnovers inside the visitor’s 20 yard-line. But neither resulted in a point. The chances were there, but the Colonels weren’t able to do much with them, falling to the Bruins 26-7.

  • North owns net to win region

    HEBRON ESTATES — While his players were celebrating, North Oldham coach Brian Jones had something clutched in his arms.

    He didn’t want to let go of the trophy the Lady Mustangs had just been presented in their 25-15, 25-20 win over Oldham County in the eighth region championship game at North Bullitt.

  • Oldham best in region, penalty...

    LOUISVILLE — The first one might have been a bit of luck.

    On a scrum in front of the Ballard net, Oldham County senior midfielder Cameron Bryant put his right foot on the ball, which found the back of the net.

    Bryant’s second goal was clutch and all him. His penalty kick goal gave the Colonels a 2-1 win on a 3-2 penalty kick advantage in the boys soccer championship at Ballard.

  • Oldham moves on, South season...

    BUCKNER — As he gathered his players in front of the Oldham County bench after the game, Lady Colonels coach Dan Schulz told his players what he thought about their standing in the 8th region tournament.

    Oldham County had just defeated Eastern 3-0 in the first round of the regional tournament.

    “We’re the best team in the region,” Schulz said. “CAL (Christian Academy of Louisville) thinks they know what they’re in for. But they don’t.”

  • Kemper hat trick leads Oldham...

    He got a little help, but junior forward Jared Kemper came up with a hat trick to begin Oldham County’s march in the 8th region tournament at Ballard tonight.

    Kemper scored two goals in the first half and one in the second half to lead the Colonels to a 4-1 win over Christian Academy of Louisville.

    Kemper’s third goal came on a penalty kick in the second half, after he was thrown down by Centurions junior goalkeeper Trevor Black in a scramble on a corner kick. Black was red carded and ejected on the play.
