  • FOOTBALL: Knights blown out in game without Head Coach Reader

    The Marion County Knights took the field, but one Knight was noticeably missing.
    Following an incident with the officials after Marion County’s loss to Garrard County on Aug. 30, Knights Head Coach Rob Reader was handed a two-game suspension.
    His loss was a big blow for the Knights, who fell 49-6 to the Bardstown Tigers on John J. Boswell Field on Friday.
    Reader spoke with the Enterprise on Saturday, and apologized to the Marion County faithful for the incident.

  • FOOTBALL: ‘We’re not going to go backwards’

    Garrard County’s run game is not pretty and flashy by any means.

    When it gets rolling, though, it’s effective.

    The Golden Lions delivered four touchdowns — all on the ground — in a 24-12 win over the Marion County Knights on Friday at John J. Boswell Field.

    “Give them credit,” Marion County Head Coach Rob Reader said. “They run the ball really well. They’re big. They’re strong. It’s not pretty, but what they do, they do well. You got to give them credit. Hats off to them.”

  • BOYS SOCCER: Knights, Cardinals square off in district showdown

    Two intense district rivals get together in Campbellsville, when the Marion County Knights and Taylor County Cardinals square off at 7:30 p.m., tomorrow, Sept. 5.

    “Taylor vs. Marion has always been an exciting game for us as a team,” said senior Omar Carmona. “It’s one of those games where we don’t need to be hyped up for. We are ready to give it our all.”

  • GIRLS SOCCER: Lady Knights push past Bullitt Central for third straight win

    A miscommunication between goalie Taylor Richardson and Katie Beth Brady allowed the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars to tie the game with exactly 10 minutes left.

    The game didn’t stay tied for long.

    Madi Hardin took the ball on the restart and dropped it to Ireland Cassidy, who then strung a pass to Bella Spalding.

    Spalding found the back of the net 16 seconds later to score the go-ahead—and ultimately game-winning—goal in a 3-2 Marion County victory last Wednesday, Aug. 28, at Bullitt Central High School.

  • VOLLEYBALL: Lady Knights shrug off slow start, beat Nelson County

    Then, their fight kicked in.

  • COLUMN: The right choice

    In my column, “Over a helmet,” that appeared in the Aug. 21 edition of the Enterprise, I railed against professional athletes in my weekly column, decrying them as overpaid crybabies only concerned with money and ungrateful for the blessings they have.
    Last week, I was reminded my harsh assessment of professional athletes should never be a generalization of all athletes.
