  • Football: Mustangs drop close...

    Arien Beasley ran for touchdowns of 62 and 80 yards but Christian Academy-Louisville made the plays at the end to beat North Oldham 24-21 Friday in Louisville.

    Mustang quarterback Taylor Heckenberg left the game early with a separated right shoulder and will miss at least the next two weeks, coach Billy Martin said.

    North (1-1) tallied 214 rushing yards but got just 12 yards through the air. The Class 2A No. 4 Centurions (3-0) out-gained the Mustangs 234-226.

    “It was just a defensive battle, both teams,” Martin said.

    The Flyers (2-0), ranked No. 4 in Class 5A, scored the game’s final 49 points.

    “Speed was the big issue,” OC coach Mike Shatzer said. “They had a lot of team speed and they just whipped us up front.

  • Boys soccer: South pleases big...

    CRESTWOOD – As the clock ticked down Wednesday night a South Oldham administrator stood in front of the entrance of a packed student section.

    He allowed one student to go out and remove two metal barricades separating the rubber track at Dragon Stadium from the turf field.

    The administrator then temporarily held back the students while waiting for South and St. Xavier soccer players to shake hands.

  • Football: South dancing into...

    CRESTWOOD – South Oldham football will waltz into a Top 10 dance Friday night looking to swing with the partner it took.

    “Dance with the girl we’ve brought” has been a motto for South coaches this season.

    In past years the Dragons have gotten too creative in game planning for individual teams to the point that it becomes a detriment, coach Jamie Reed said.

    This year South, ranked No. 7 in Class 5A by the Associated Press and coming off a win against Collins, is sticking with what it does best – running the ball.
