Well, it was a slow week for sports here at The Enterprise. Unfortunately, with the soccer teams finishing up their season on the road, I wasn’t left with as much to cover this week. Thankfully, George Spragens went with the boys team and was generous enough to send photos. He also took pictures of an autumn baseball game at St. Catherine’s College, pitting the Marion County Knights pitted against Bethlehem and Bardstown in a double-header.
History always repeats itself.
Picking up from where they left off last week – in soaking conditions, the Marion County Knights took their third one-point win of the season over the Mercer County Titans on Oct. 10. The Knights (5-2) won the heated affair 20-19.
The Marion County Lady Knights took a victory over the Bardstown Lady Tigers on Oct. 9.
Adding icing to the top of their cake, the 3-1 victory was a sweet ending for the 12 seniors of the team because it also happened to be senior night.
“We played really hard in the beginning,” Lady Knights senior Mckenzie Reynolds said.
The Lady Knights (18-14) lost a chance to win the game in the third set and finished 25-21, 25-18, 21-25, 25-22.
Reynolds said they relaxed in third set which is what gave Bardstown (13-16) the win.
On Oct. 9, the Marion County Knights visited the Bethlehem Eagles for their final game of the regular season. Unfortunately, the Knights fell 6-1 in the contest against the Eagles (9-8-1).
The Knights (3-13-3) will begin post-season play on Tuesday after press time. Marion County will host this year’s 18th district tournament, and will be hosting all soccer district tournaments until further notice.
Well, our 2014 youth deer hunt was bad and good, weather-wise.
Saturday was just plain miserable with all the rain. Of course, there are those who consider the off and on rain, and cool temperatures, the best weather for hunting deer.
Then came Sunday with a beautiful, rain free, morning. The temperature was good and the wind was acceptable for the morning and evening hours.
I know of several youth who took advantage of the weekend, but as I write this I haven’t heard what kind of luck they had.
