  • A late winner

    BUCKNER - Late or not, Eric Dunlap's tip-in of his own missed shot at the buzzer was the game-winner Tuesday as the Oldham County Colonels beat Nelson County 62-60.

    "It might have been late, but a win is a win," Dunlap said. "It bounced right back at me. I was trying to get fouled and when I missed I knew I had to attack the basket and get a hand on it."

    The tip-in left Nelson County stunned after the Cardinals led through much of the game only to fall behind to a furious OCHS comeback in the final four minutes.

    GOSHEN - The steep learning curve of playing without their top two players continued for the North Oldham Lady Mustangs Monday in a 46-42 loss to Gallatin County.

    "We're the walking wounded right now," NOHS coach Nancy Martin said. "Pretty much 85 percent of our scoring in on the bench and will be for the next two weeks."

  • Just like you and me

    We don't get many police cars in our neighborhood, so I'm pretty sure my neighbors were a little curious about the silver Oldham County Police cruiser sitting in my driveway with blue lights flashing.
