    Just six minutes into first quarter, North Oldham’s Bryce Webb connected with running back Conner Newhouse for a 74-yard touchdown pass. But that would be nearly all the offense for North Oldham until the Mustangs found the end zone again with just 12 seconds remaining in the third frame.

    “We started finishing against Shelby and ended up with the win,” Collins coach Jamil Shalash said. “We showed great control in the win. It was a matter of bringing the ball into the attack area with diagonal runs, and we finished those opportunities.”

  • Rockets back in action against...

    With a week off to heal up, the Shelby County High School football team will ease back into play against a winless North Oldham (0-7) team at Robert Doyle Stadium tonight.

    “[The bye week] was really nice,” SCHS coach Todd Shipley said. “We hope to be close to having everyone healthy. It’s always good to focus on the basics.”

    Although the Mustangs may be winless this season, Shipley is keeping his players focused by reminding them of the loss to Bullitt East earlier this year.

  • Titans face a potent Central...

    With the first district win of the season under its belt, the Collins High School football team will turn its sights to a visiting 6A Central Hardin (3-3) tonight.

    “It was good to get a win in the district.  We are now playing a 6A school in Central Hardin, so we are stepping out of district against another good football team,” Collins coach Jerry Lucas said. “We are excited about the opportunity.  It’s a good opportunity for us to go against another good Wing-T offense.”

  • Titans hold off Franklin County

    The Collins High School football team picked up its first district win, 38-31, at Franklin County Friday.

    “I thought it was a good hard fought game,” Collins coach Jerry Lucas said. “We played well on offense, and I thought we did a good job getting Dalton Maggard the ball in space.”

    As with most Titan games, the offense put up points in bunches.

    Quarterback J.R. Lucas found Maggard early and often on deep routes, with the receiver getting behind the Flyers’ defense multiple times for scores.

  • Rockets learning in losses

    With a step up in competition, the Shelby County boys’ soccer team has taken a step back in the standings, but it should pay off as the team preps for the postseason.

    “Our last couple games have been against really great teams,” SCHS coach Michael Hornback said. “Even though we expect to win anytime we step foot on the field, I think the caliber of our recent opponents, takes away a little bit of the sting from the two losses.”
