  • Something to prove

    Growing up as a small guy, Jeremy Yates is out to defeat a stereotype.

    He's up against the belief that small guys can't fight and so far he's off to a good start. He's willing to go through broken noses and anything else to win.

    Yates is 1-0 as a mixed martial arts fighter (MMA) and his second match is fast approaching.

    "I always had bigger guys try to run over me and I'd always tried to hold my own but a lot of times fell short," Yates said.

  • Knights lose heartbreaker to...

    Mistakes piled up for the Knights on Friday, so much that it cost them a chance to advance to the second round of the playoffs.

    Carlos Litsey batted down a Fairdale pass to the end zone on fourth and 22 with 2:19 to go, seemingly ensuring a 17-14 victory for the Knights.

    The Knights just needed to run the clock against Fairdale who had previously used all of their time outs.

    A mishandled hand off led to a Buster Hazelwood fumble with 1:37 to go in the game. Fairdale would recover on the Marion County 36-yard line.

  • A long night for the Knights

    Green County handed Marion County its worst loss of the season Friday night in Greensburg as the Dragons beat Marion County, 42-21.

    The 21-point margin ties for the worst loss of the season, the first coming at the hands of undefeated John Hardin.

  • North Bullitt pounds Knights

    Size mattered on Thursday night in Shepherdsville.

    The North Bullitt Eagles (6-3) and their monstrous front line were too much

    for the Knights (5-4) in a 28-16 Knights loss at North Bullitt. The Eagles limited Marion County to only 11 offensive plays in the second half as they controlled the pace of the game. Only three of those plays were carries by a normally run heavy offense.
