  • EARLIER: Marion County 30, Collins 27: Long drives overcome Titans’ quick scores

    Coach Jerry Lucas said he hopes his Collins High School football team learns as much or more from a 30-27 loss to Marion County than it did from winning its first two games.

    The Titans (2-1) and the host Knights (1-1) squared off in a Class 4A District-4 powerhouse matchup last Friday night, with Lucas’ squad coming up on the short end despite four touchdown passes from senior quarterback Branden Cresap.

  • EARLIER: LaRue 19, SCHS 7: Early lead doesn't stand up

    For two quarters, it looked like Shelby County High School’s football team was going to ease the sting of a winless early season on Friday night, but a second-half rally by host LaRue County dealt the Rockets another loss, 19-7.

    SCHS (0-3) led a team for the first time this season when senior running back Quinten Cottrell scored on a 1-yard run in the first quarter, and an opportunistic defense held the Hawks at bay for a 7-0 lead at the intermission.

  • WICHE: Crabgrass’s history reveals its multiple uses

    I heard someone lamenting their crabgrass the other day; they were convinced that this was the worst year ever.

    Maybe so, but usually by this time crabgrass rears its ugly head and begins to creep through our fescue lawns, sneak into our cultivated beds and, when we’re not looking, reseed its self to ensure the continuation of the species.

    Sounds a bit sinister for a grass, I suppose, but it sure is difficult to control.
