  • Flying high and running hard

    After scoring 26 points in the first half, it was a play in the last two minutes of the second half that made the difference Friday night.
    Owen County quarterback Adam Hazelett connected on a 34-yard touchdown pass to Chris Day with 1:01 left in the game to give Owen County a 32-26 victory over Western Hills.
    The win improved the Rebels to 4-0 on the season.
    “I was in shock,” Day said about the game-winning play. “That was a perfect ball thanks to Adam Hazelett. You couldn’t ask for a better ball from the quarterback.”

  • Rebel football putting the fun...

    Friday nights in September are supposed to be fun.
    The weather is getting cooler and high school football is in full swing. For the past few years in Owen County, Friday nights have been, well, so-so, but not this year.
    Something about this season seems different. Fun.
    When I go to home games, I don’t sit in the stands. I usually stand on the Owen County sidelines on the far side from the bleachers. From across the field this week I noticed something. The bleachers were full — not only that — the fans were into the game.

    HotShots–8 vs. Wildcats–2

  • Tough time at All A

    Hopes were high as Owen County traveled to Williamstown Saturday for the  Eighth-Region All “A” Classic.
    The Lady Rebels went into the tournament as the defending champs.
    Things got off to a good start as they knocked off Carroll County, 25-20 and 25-19, to advance to the semifinals.
    The win was the second over the Lady Panthers in 10 days. Owen County defeated Carroll County in another close match, 25-22 and 28-26, Aug. 25 in Carrollton.

    Boys soccer
    The boy’s soccer team dropped a pair of contests last week. The Rebels lost to Dixie Heights and Lexington Christian.
    They will host Carroll County Thursday before traveling to Western Hills Saturday afternoon. They will take part in the Frankfort Invitational next week beginning Monday night.

    Girls soccer
    The Lady Rebels soccer team lost two games last week. They were defeated by Woodford County and Western Hills.

  • Rebel ramblings

    • While Owen County was beating Bourbon County Friday night, Western Hills defeated Grant County, 21-6, to improve to 1-2.
    • In going 3-0 to start the season, the Rebels have outscored their first three opponents 69-33.
    • In contrast, the 21 points scored Friday night by the Wolverines were their first points scored in 2011. In their first two games, Western Hills lost 28-0 to Woodford County and 62-0 to Franklin County.

  • Rebels rally to remain perfect

    It seemed like the perfect storm.
    The Rebels traveled to Paris Friday night to take on Bourbon County. They knew before they got there that they would be battling more than just the Colonels.
    First, they would be dealing with temperatures in the 90s.
    Second, they would have to play in front of a crowd that was excited about watching its team play on its new field turf for the first time.
    If that wasn’t enough, Owen County would fall behind 14-0 in the first quarter.

  • Youth soccer league opens fall...

    The Owen County U10 Boys hosted the Frankfort Magic for their first game of the fall soccer season.
    The teams proved to be evenly matched. After 50 minutes of play, the game ended in a tie.
    Scoring for the Rebels was evenly distributed with Cody Anderson, Jack Spurgeon and Kaleb Epperson each scoring one goal.

  • Three-peat

    Some habits are bad. This one is not.
    The Owen County High School girl’s golf team is making a habit of winning the Eighth Region All “A” Classic.
    On Aug. 23 at Fairway Golf Course, the team did it for the third year in a row.
    As a team, the Lady Rebels shot a combined score of 324 to beat their nearest competitor, Carroll County, which posted a 406.
    According to Owen County High School Girls Golf Coach David Wainscott, it was the lowest round shot by a team he has coached.
