  • Friday Night preview

    Opponent: Bourbon County Colonels

    Place: Paris

    Kickoff: 7:30 p.m.

    • The Colonels are coached by Johnny Poynter. He should be familiar with the Rebels. Poynter came to Bourbon County from Trimble County.

    • Bourbon County has been on the mountain top. The Colonels defeated Owensboro Catholic 39-28 to capture the 1997 2A State Championship. Bourbon competes in 4A.

  • Freshman volleyball and JV golf...

    It’s sometimes easy to forget about the freshman and junior varsity teams. They work just hard as the varsity but often don’t get the recognition. Two of those teams turned in very good weekends.

    The Owen County High School freshman volleyball team traveled to Southern High School over the weekend and came home with a new, shiny trophy. The girls defeated Southern, Bullitt Central and Iriquois high schools to win the title.

    Haley DeCandia, Lizzy Anderson and Olivia Karsner were named to the all-tournament team.

  • Owen County Youth Football...

    The Owen County Parks & Recreation youth competitive football teams recently completed games against Pendleton County and Grant County. The Mighty Pro and Power House teams both came away victorious against both rivals, while the Midget team suffered losses in both of their contests. The following is a recap of the action:

    Midget Division

    Pendleton Co. – 27

    Owen County – 0

    The Panthers jumped on the young Rebels from the opening play and never looked back to capture the victory.

    Grant Blue – 33

  • Varsity boys, JV girls earn...

    It was a week of two extremes for the Owen County boy’s soccer team last week.

    The week began and ended with shutout losses to both Simon Kenton and Scott County. In between, the Rebels easily defeated Garrard County 7-1.

    The game was the first game for Owen County in the Cardinal Cup at Scott County. James Marston scored four goals for the victorious Rebels. Marston also had an assist. Blake Lewis added two goals and an assist while Ryan Marston scored a goal and added a pair of helpers. Ben Allen, Austin Collins and Patrick Brumback each had assists.

  • Wildcats run past Rebels

    If a team could have a do-over, the Owen County Rebels would pick the second quarter of Friday night’s game at Henry County.

    After a scoreless first quarter, the Wildcats erupted for 37 unanswered points to close out the first half.

    It appeared the Rebels might have gotten out of the first half still in the game. The Rebels were trailing 22-7 with less than two minutes left in the half.

    The Wildcats closed out the quarter and half by scoring two touchdowns on two offensive plays to extend the lead to 37-7 as the two teams headed to the locker room.

    Place: Patterson Field, Owenton

    Game Time: 7:30 p.m.

    • Chris Collins is the new head coach at Trimble County. Collins came to the Raiders from Atherton High School. Last season, Collins brought his team to Owenton and went home with a loss as the Rebels won the game 20-6.

  • Owen cross county team off and...

    The cross country season has begun for the Owen County Lady Rebels.

    The team has high expectations entering the season. Danielle Hoop is returning for her junior season. Julie Spaulding, a freshman, is returning for another year running for the varsity team.

    The two have been working hard this summer to prepare for this season. Spaulding continues to learn from Hoop, who is coming off a second-place finish at last year’s state meet at the Kentucky Horse Park.

    The team ran its first race of the season Sept. 8 at Henry County.

  • Volleyball team wins again

    This is getting to be a habit, but not a bad one.

    The Owen County volleyball team picked up its fifth win of the season Thursday night. The Lady Rebels defeated Heritage Academy 25-12 and 25-13 to pick up the win.

    Lindsey Robertson played at the setter position and had 19 assists. Mollie Borchers had 15 kills, two blocks and four aces. Kayla Simpson added a pair of blocks, seven kills and three aces. Chelcey True had seven kills in the victory.

  • Home team takes title

    The boys had been waiting all season for this moment and Saturday, it finally happened.

    The Rebels hosted the Owen County Invitational Saturday. The team was still looking for its first win of the season. The Rebels had lost a tough match last week to Grant County. The Braves led 1-0 for most of the game before scoring two goals in the final 10 minutes to get the 3-0 win.

    Saturday’s tournament began with Gallatin County taking on Walton-Verona. The Wildcats advanced to the championship game with a 3-2 win over the Bearcats.

  • Rebels rack up No. 1

    On a night perfect for football, the Owen County Rebels took on the Gallatin County Wildcats.

    The Rebels were looking for their first win of the season and first over the Wildcats since 2006. Despite some sickness that had spread around the locker room during the week, Owen County picked up the 13-7 win.

    All the scoring came in the first quarter and the Rebels then held fort the rest of the night.

    The Wildcats scored on their first offensive possession to take a 7-0 lead.
