  • SOCCER: Hawks blank Burgin

     After a week-long layoff between games, the LaRue County Hawks were sluggish at the beginning of the Sept. 6 contest with Burgin.

    Bus travel, heat, weather, field conditions  –  good excuses for a weaker team.  But, the Hawks wanted none of that. Frustration was wearing thin on their faces and shoulders. Finally, in the 17th minute, senior Mason Morgan delivered a long throw-in to the waiting feet of fellow senior Alex Cook. Cook was standing near the penalty mark, turned and shot before the ball touched the ground.

  • FOOTBALL: Hawks defeat Spencer

     It was heartbreak in Hodgenville on Friday night for the Spencer County Bears as a potentially game-winning 35-yard field goal attempt sailed a little wide to the left with just seconds left on the clock, sending the Bears to a 14-12 loss to LaRue County.

    A hard-fought battle from the very beginning, Spencer County took the ball at its own 22-yard-line with just under four minutes remaining to attempt a game winning drive. Behind the tough running of Shawn Boykin, the Bears were able to march down the field and into LaRue County territory.
