    Despite having already clinched home-field advantage in the first round of the Class 2A State Playoffs, the Owen County High School Rebels still had a lot to play for in their final regular-season game on Friday night.
    The Rebels traveled to Ludlow and looked to finish the regular season with a victory to give them a winning record for the second year in a row.
    They were also looking to gain momentum as they head into the playoffs.
    They did both.

  • Rebel Ramblings: Ludlow

    • The Rebels defeated the Panthers 42-12 last season in Owenton. The win completed a 10-0 regular season for Owen County.
    • Ludlow is 1-8 on the season. They lost 61-0 to Beechwood Friday night.
    • The Rebels should be able to score points Friday night. In nine games this season, the Panthers have allowed 416 points. They have not allowed less than 30 points in any game this season.

  • Home sweet home

    When people think of meaningful Owen County versus Gallatin County games on Friday nights, they typically think of them being played indoors on hardwood.
    On Friday night, the two schools met outside on grass with home field advantage on the line.
    Using a fast-break style offense and some big plays on defense, the Rebels ran away from the Wildcats 59-22. It was the third-straight week Owen County has scored more than 50 points in a win.
    Owen County wasted no time in putting points on the board.

  • Successful soccer seasons end

    Two successful seasons came to an end last week. The Owen County High School boys and girls soccer team finished their seasons a week ago in the Eighth Region Tournament.
    The Lady Rebels wrapped up their year by falling 7-0 to Spencer County Oct. 15 at Patterson Field. Owen County fell behind early in the game allowing three goals in a five-minute stretch to let the game slip away.
