  • FOOTBALL: Too many turnovers cost Knights home opener

    The Marion County Knights took the field on Sep. 2 for the season's first home game against the Bardstown Tigers and looked to bounce back from a rough loss at Elizabethtown a week earlier. But, they could not overcome first half mistakes as they lost 46-20.
    Knights Head Coach Allen Harmon said his team did not play a clean first half offensively.
    "We had too many turnovers," he said. "Just like against Elizabethtown, if you give them opportunities, they're going to make you pay."

Kenneth wouldn’t do it if his 8-year-old son didn’t show an interest. However, not only does Colby enjoy the long trips with his dad, he also can’t wait to get back on the track.

    “She was just an average-looking horse,” Avritt said. “I’m on a budget. I can’t go out and spend $50,000 or $100,000 on a top-notch horse. I’ve got to sort of find something that everyone else has overlooked.”
