  • Last second heroics propel Knights over Anderson County

    A 35-17 lead in the second half turned into a 39-35 deficit in the fourth quarter for the Knights on Friday night against Anderson County.

    Bryson Bell's end zone catch with seven seconds remaining would put the Knights up for good, 42-39. Bell and quarterback Eric Miles connected on the Hail Mary play on third and fifteen. Bell made the catch over several Bearcat defenders and wrestled for the ball while falling into to the end zone.

  • Knights run out of time

    If the Knights played the North Bullitt High School Eagles on paper, Marion County would have walked off North Bullitt's field a happy team on Friday night.
