  • Titans look to rebound at Franklin County

    After suffering its second loss of the season on Friday night, the Collins High School football team (3-2) looks to regroup in a match-up at struggling Franklin County (2-4) tonight.

    Luckily for the Titans, Franklin is coming off of a loss of its own after being blown out by Shelby County 52-18 last week.

    A quick strike offense left the Flyers scrambling to make plays last week, which led to Franklin turning the ball over four times in the loss.

  • Titans race past South Oldham, 3-2

    The magic number for the Collins High School boys’ soccer team is two.

    When the Titans score at least two goals, the team is 4-0-1 this season, and 0-10 when it does not.

    That same pattern held on Tuesday night, when Collins put three goals in the net and defeated South Oldham by a score of 3-2.

  • Rockets rally for tie against Western Hills

    On Tuesday night, the Shelby County High School boys’ soccer team fought Western Hills to a 2-2 tie.

    “I’m satisfied with the tie, because a few weeks ago, Western Hills beat Woodford County, who is a top-ten team,” SCHS coach Michael Hornback said.

    The Rockets first goal came from the foot of junior forward Caleb Patten, who put in his team-leading 15th goal of the season thanks to an assist by senior Kyrien Stone.

    Although the University of Louisville football team is one of the top squads in America, led by quarterback Lamar Jackson, the team is still looking to upgrade in its kicking game.

    Enter former Collins High School placekicker Blanton Creque, who earned his first start Saturday.

    Last season, the all-state talent walked on with UofL and spent the 2015 season redshirted. Creque says that he spent the year off improving his skills and learning from his new coaches.

    While the Collins High School (3-2, 0-1 in the district) football team put up a solid effort against district foe Spencer County (5-1, 1-0 in the district), turnovers ended up being the deciding factor.

    With 3:55 remaining in the final quarter and Collins down 35-28 to the visiting Bears, quarterback J.R. Lucas was picked off by Spencer’s Hunter Brown, who took the interception 57 yards for a touchdown.

    “It’s a good feeling [to win at home],” SCHS running back Brandon Davis said. “We just do it for the fans and the people that support us.”
