  • Knights prepare for Bullitt East...

    Impressive as their season has been, the Knights have not found Bullitt County to be friendly terrain.

    The Knights' first loss of the season came in Mount Washington at the hands of a Bullitt East Chargers team that was 1-3 going into the game. Their second loss came to North Bullitt a few weeks later.

    The 13-10 loss to the Chargers was within the Knights' reach, as they turned the ball over three times in the red zone in four trips. A questionable fourth down call didn't help the Knights' cause either.

  • LMS to play in state tourney Nov...

    The Girl's Sweet 16 is still several months away, but that doesn't mean there is a shortage of championship basketball being played. The Girl's Middle School State Tournament Final sponsored by the Kentucky Basketball Academy will be played at Rupp Arena on Nov. 28, at 1:30 p.m. This tournament has been going on since 2003. The KBA decided to add a little incentive to the tournament this year and play the finals at Rupp Arena.  

    The tournament started with 32 teams from all ends of the Commonwealth. Only a few teams are left standing for a chance to play in Rupp.

  • Knights lose 35-7 to Bullitt East

    The Marion County Knights started strong against the Bullitt East Chargers, forcing three and outs on the first two possessions. The Knights even forced a Bullitt East punt on the Bullitt East 11 yard line, setting up the Knights from the Bullitt East 38. 

    The Knights would falter on fourth and three at the Chargers 22, turning the ball over and losing momentum for the rest of the game.

    Bullitt East took advantage of the turnover and  sent Jonathan Bernard on a 78 yard scamper to paydirt, putting the Chargers up 7-0.

  • 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."

  • Knights advance, beat Fairdale,...

    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.

  • Local teams fare well in flag...

    Team captains David Hazelwood and Chad Spalding led their teams to the final four but couldn't get past "Campbellsville High Alum" and a Casey County team, who squared off in the final. The Casey County team came away with the title.
