  • Rebels drop fourth straight

    Owen County headed to Carrollton Friday night with their hopes set high on returning with their fourth win of the season. They came home shaking their heads wondering how they lost their fourth-straight game.

    Things began well enough as Joey Wood took a toss sweep and went 10 yards for a score to cap off the Rebels’ second drive of the night. The extra point gave Owen County an early 7-0 lead.

    The Panthers answered right back as they scored to tie the game at 7-7.

  • Playoff bound

    After beginning the season with back-to-back losses, the playoffs may not have been on the minds of the Bowling Middle School Rebels.

    After six-straight wins to finish the season, they can think about them now.

    The Rebels will host Henry County at 5  p.m. Saturday at Patterson Field in the first round of the middle school playoffs.

    The game will be a rematch of the second game of the season when the Wildcats defeated the Rebels 44-8. The boys from Bowling Middle School are looking forward to the rematch.

  • Power Plays

    Krista Power recently became only the second Owen County student to bring home top honors at the Sixth Region High School Girls Golf Tournament.

    Power became the first female golfer from Owen County to win a regional golf championship since Ashley Kendall did it in 1998 and 2000.

    Power captured the region championship with a 76 at Eagle Creek Country Club. Power won the title by five strokes over the runner-up, Morgan Larison of Simon Kenton High School.

    “It was my goal when the season started and I accomplished it,” Power said.

  • Rebels fall in district opener

    Owen County knew Friday night’s game with DeSales was not going to be easy.

    The Colts came into Owenton having owned the district over the last three years. In fact, since the districts were realigned in 2007, DeSales has not lost a game against district opposition.

  • Jilted in The Jungle

    The football stadium at East Jessamine is called The Jungle. On Friday night in Nicholasville, the Jaguars seemed to be lying in wait for the arrival of the Owen County Rebels.

    East Jessamine jumped in front early and never looked back as they defeated Owen County 49-0. The loss dropped the Rebels to 3-3 on the season.

    East Jessamine junior Cameron Thomas ran the ball only 11 times Friday night and made the most of his opportunities. Four times in the first half, he took the handoff and went the distance. Thomas finished the night with 201-yards rushing.
