  • FOOTBALL: Hawks' season ends at Bell

     LOG MOUNTAIN — For 2 1/2 quarters Friday night, the LaRue County Hawks had an eastern Kentucky power on the ropes.

    Then Jonathon Polly got his groove back.

    The Bell County senior running back ran for three of his four touchdowns in the final 19 minutes and finished with a game-high 210 yards on 23 carries to help the Bobcats rally past the Hawks, 35-14 in the second round of the Class 3-A state playoffs at Dudley Hilton Stadium.

  • BOYS SOCCER: Records set in an unforgettable season

     The 2012 LaRue County High School boys soccer team made history with victories in the Trojan Classic soccer tournament, the 18th District tournament and a first ever appearance in the 5th Region tournament. 

    Best team in school history? Facts are hard to deny. Best record, most goals, district finals, region quarterfinals. The team went undefeated for 31 days, 10 matches in a row.

    Individually, there was little argument.

  • FOOTBALL: Hawks defeat Corbin

    LaRue County’s defense forced six turnovers, allowed just one touchdown overall and limited the visiting Corbin Redhounds to barely more than 100 yards after halftime to allow the Hawks to pull away for a 36-16 win Friday night in the first round of the Class 3-A state playoffs.

    The Hawks (6-5) trailed 10-9 with less than 7 minutes remaining in the third quarter before outscoring the Redhounds 27-6 over the final 18:07. After outgaining LaRue County in offensive yards in the first half, 170-160, the Redhounds (5-6) managed just 109 yards on 24 plays.
