  • Titans hold off North Hardin for...

    LEXINGTON – Collins High School’s football team scored seven touchdowns Saturday night in the opening game of the Republic Bank Bluegrass Bowl at Lexington Catholic, but it took a shutdown defensive stand on the last series of the game to turn back a resilient North Hardin squad by a 49-42 final.

    The Titans (2-0), commanded leads of 28-7 and 35-14 in the middle quarters of a game that was delayed about 45 minutes due to an excessive heat index of 100-plus degrees, but allowed the Trojans (1-1) to close within a touchdown with 4:20 left in the final stanza.

    Though  there were several heroic moments in the regional baseball games, James Wright certainly had more than his share.

     

    Wright, a left-handed-hitting senior, stroked a 2-run, walk-off single to defeat North Oldham, then started the first comeback against Anderson County with a home run in the bottom of the sixth. In the 11th inning, it was Wright who came in to pitch and get the final two outs (both batters grounded out). He hadn’t pitched but a couple innings all season.

    It was supposed to be the unveiling of Shelby County high school football in the new era of a two-school system. What it turned into was a showcase for a powerful Nelson County team.

    The Cardinals scored six touchdowns rushing and two via punt returns in doubling up on Shelby County, 54-27, in the Rockets’ season opener at Robert Doyle Stadium on Friday night.

    Collins High School can break out the history book in a big way.

    The school opened its inaugural football season Friday with a 48-16 thrashing of Sheldon Clark.

    Wide receiver Tavis Elzy said the dominating performance left him speechless.

    "Just unbelievable," he said. "I'm at a loss for words."

    The first football victory in school history came before the kickoff, when school namesake and former Gov. Martha Layne Collins herself flipped the coin that came up in favor of the Titans.
