  • SOCCER: Hawks fall to E'town

    After eight straight games under Murphy’s Law – what can go wrong will go wrong – Travis Richardson and the slumping Elizabethtown Panthers finally had something go right Tuesday.
    Richardson had one assist and two goals, including the game winner in the final 4 minutes, as the All-State junior striker helped the visiting Panthers finally hold off the LaRue County Hawks, 4-3 in the area rivals’ inaugural meeting.

  • 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.

  • FOOTBALL: LaRue falls to Shelby

    LaRue County didn’t get off to the best start Friday and the Hawks’ night didn’t get much better.

    Host Shelby County scored on its first two possessions before the Rockets pulled away for a 28-0 win at Robert Doyle Stadium and their first season-opening victory since 2007.

    It was also a frustrating night for LaRue County’s boys’ basketball team as its senior backcourt of Gabe Shirley (quarterback) and Kelton Ford (wide receiver) both suffered ankle injuries and didn’t return.

  • SOCCER: Hawks win season opener

     The first week of soccer matches saw good fortune for the Hawks of LaRue County High School. 

    The Hawks soccer team opened the 18th district season play Aug. 13 with an impressive 8-2 victory over the visiting Campbellsville Eagles. On the attack, seniors Alex Cook, Rico Collado and Marshall Metcalf continued their assault on the record books.

    Collado gathered his troops and fed a diagonal-running Metcalf with a pinpoint pass. At 5:32 p.m., Metcalf's score was perhaps the first score in the state.
