  • Woods and Waters: Duck and goose...

    It all started Thursday! Well, duck and goose started Thursday and while duck season went till Nov. 27, goose goes without interruption until Feb. 15, 2017.
    Duck season opens back up on Dec. 5 and goes through Jan. 27, 2017.
    John and I saw one decoy spread while we fished on Friday.
    We thought the Black Friday tournament started at 8 a.m., but it actually launched at 7 a.m. Another angler, who’d fished several Black Friday tournaments, said all the others started at 8 a.m. We fished until noon anyway! Oh yeah, and we caught fish!

    Thirty-five turnovers derailed the Knights against the Iroquois Raiders Saturday, Nov. 19, at the King of the Bluegrass Showcase in Fairdale. In the final scrimmage for the Knights, they lost the first three quarters against the Raiders and tied the last one (12-22, 18-19, 12-18, 20-20). 
    "We came out slow," Knights Head Coach Montrelle Irvin said. "We had lots of turnovers in the first quarter and in the second quarter through the rest of the game, we continued with the turnovers."
