  • Knight train derails

    The Marion County Knights played their big brother in the cold weather Friday night in Bullitt County. Big brother wasn't messing around.

    The Bullitt East Chargers beat the Marion County Knights in the same fashion the Knights have won all season - with a bruising ground attack.

    Knights' Head Coach Jeff Robbins put it simply.

    "We got whipped up front," he said. "Bullitt East played better on both sides up front. They took it to our guys. We didn't respond."

    In a match up touted as the "Game of the Week" on WHAS 11 in Louisville, the Knights and Bulldogs didn't disappoint.

    Bryson Bell's last of three touchdowns, on a 12-yard scamper, secured a win for the Marion County Knights with under two minutes to play Friday night at Greschel Stadium in Louisville.

    David Litsey's interception off a deep ball from Fairdale's Bradley Vincent to standout receiver Quintrel Morris ruined any chance the Bulldogs had for a miraculous comeback.
