  • FOOTBALL: Too many turnovers...

    The Marion County Knights took the field on Sep. 2 for the season's first home game against the Bardstown Tigers and looked to bounce back from a rough loss at Elizabethtown a week earlier. But, they could not overcome first half mistakes as they lost 46-20.
    Knights Head Coach Allen Harmon said his team did not play a clean first half offensively.
    "We had too many turnovers," he said. "Just like against Elizabethtown, if you give them opportunities, they're going to make you pay."

    By Larry Vaught

    No University of Kentucky basketball fan would be shocked that Scott Padgett's son is a potential college basketball player. However, Logan Padgett might also have a future in football that could turn out to be better than basketball.
    Scott Padgett was on UK's 1998 national championship team and is now the head coach at Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama. Logan is a 6-6 receiver on the Homewood High School football team and power forward on the basketball team.

    "We seem to come out flat in most of our first sets this season and did that again tonight," Lady Knights Head Coach David Hibbard said. "Almost no offense was the result of our poor defense. I'm surprised we were as close as we were."
