  • Ballard leads Mercer County to...

    Opportunities were there for the Knights. The goals, on the other hand, were not.

    Brandon Ballard scored twice for the Titans and Mercer County defended their home field with a 4-0 victory over Marion County last Tuesday in Harrodsburg.

  • Knights still winless after loss...

    The Marion County Knights seniors got a great celebration before the game Friday evening against the West Jessamine Colts.

    The game’s end result, however, didn’t provide the best end to the celebratory night, as Marion County dropped to 0-7 on the season with a 35-12 loss to West Jessamine. The win assured the Knights a winless record on their home field — John J. Boswell Field — for the season.

  • Lady Knights five-game winning...

    The Marion County Lady Knights have extended their winning streak to five after two wins this week over the Presentation Toppers and the Shelby County Lady Rockets, both on Elmer J. George Field.

    Marion County defeated the Toppers, 2-1, on Senior Night last Wednesday. The Lady Knights led 2-0 at the half — both goals coming from Libby Palagi. 

  • BOYS SOCCER: Taylor County...

    The top seed was on the line.
    After 80 minutes and two overtimes, Taylor County came out on top. With the game tied at two, Taylor County booted in the game-winning kick in the second overtime, grabbing the top seed in the district and a 3-2 win.
    “Wow, what a game,” Knights Head Coach Greg Conley said “We played absolutely, absolutely outstanding. I am incredibly proud of my guys. I’m proud of the way we played and the way we kept our heads through adversity. We just kept battling. We had a lot of heart tonight. A lot of heart.”

  • FOOTBALL: Marion County falls 48...

    Homecoming night was sweet and sour Friday evening for the Knights.
    Several Hall of Fame inductions made the night a special one, but it still ended in a loss for Marion County, falling to the Mercer County Titans 48-20.
    “I was pleased with the overall effort and physicality of the team,” Marion County Head Coach Allen Harmon said. “We had a bad first quarter with all the turnovers and spotted [Mercer County] points.”

  • Time management

    On Sept. 16, the USC Trojans and Texas Longhorns played each other for the first time since their epic clash at the Rose Bowl in 2006. Playing a mere 16 miles from the sight of the national championship game that year, the Trojans and Longhorns spent the better part of three and a half quarters locked in a defensive struggle and a turnover-plagued game (both squads combined for six turnovers).

  • GIRLS SOCCER: Lady Knights mercy...

    The Marion County Lady Knights grabbed three wins this week to improve their record to 4-8.
    Marion County began the week with a win over Casey County, 3-1, on Sept. 18 in Liberty.
    “It was a very physical match but I was pleased with way we handled it and how we played down the stretch,” Marion County Head Coach Daniel Johnson said.

  • GOLF: Marion County wins three...

    The Marion County Knights competed in four golf matches this week, winning three of four matches.
    “Overall, it was a good week for us,” Marion County Head Coach Joey Reed said. “I told the guys I didn’t want them to worry about any match but to prepare themselves for region back on Monday. I wanted us to take advantage of a week of competitive golf and focus on playing under pressure.”

  • Lancaster, Simpson, Robbins...

    Charles Lancaster, Sr., Todd Simpson and the late Jeff Robbins were inducted into the Hall of Fame before the football team’s district game against the Mercer County Titans on Friday - a 48-20 loss for the Knights.
    Lancaster has been the voice of Marion County football for more than 40 years. He’s been involved football longer than that, serving as an announcer at St. Joseph’s College - which closed in May - in Indiana from 1954-58. He also played St. Augustine School from 1952-54.
