  • Girls soccer: South handles...

    BUCKNER – There were two top 25 teams, two full student sections and an official that was allowing plenty of physical contact Monday.

    No. 11 South Oldham (7-1) handled that atmosphere and came out with a 3-1 road victory at its archrival, No. 21 Oldham County (2-4).

    The win was the seventh straight for the Lady Dragons.

    It also broke an eight-game Lady Colonel winning streak in the series, including matchups last year in the regular season and District 29 and Region 8 championship games.

  • 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.

  • Football: Colonels fall at...

    Oldham County is off to a 0-3 start after losing 49-7 at Franklin County Friday night.

    Senior Carson Axtell returned the opening kickoff 90 yards for a Colonel touchdown, but that was the only score all night for OC.

    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.
