Inside South-Central Kentucky Football (10-21-13)

By DragonFire - Inside South-Central Kentucky Football (10-21-13) -Friday night provided confirmation of something that everyone knew already, that Bowling Green (7-0) is far and away the best team in the area, truly without peers. Warren Central (4-4) managed to stay in touch with the Purples through 1.5 quarters by matching them score for score. It was 14 all at the 9 minute mark of the second quarter, and just 20-14 BG heading under 5 minutes in the half. But the Purples' powerful offense was stopped only once on the night and very rarely slowed, a clip that the Dragons just could not hope to match.... Read More →

Inside North-Eastern Kentucky Football (10-20-13)

By Ram - The Week In Review Raceland 36 Fairview 14 Game of the week in the area, and it did not disappoint. Raceland used a diverse offensive and special teams scheme to throw Fairview off balance.

Four Raceland running backs gained around 50 yards apiece. Fairview kept the game competitive though out, but the “Bend without breaking” Raceland defense did not allow any big plays by the Eagles and made them work the ball down the field... Read More →

Mercer's substitute quarterback appears to be the right man for the job

By thegeneral - Offensive coaches have always tried to get the ball in the hands of their best athletes, and sometimes that means the best athlete has to play quarterback. Craig Yeast did that years ago in his senior season at Harrodsburg, when the Pioneers had no viable options at the position. He couldn’t throw passes to himself, but he could cover a great deal of ground in a hurry. Chris Crawley-Goodman isn’t the same type of player as Yeast, but he is filling the same role for Mercer County, albeit on a temporary basis. And in two games at his new position, he has proved to be a very quick study. ... Read More →

St. Xavier Insider- Week 8

By AvidTiger - 9 games into this season and who would've thought with all the pre-season hoopla the tigers would be .500 and down to 1 of the original big 3? :no: honestly no one. But with the regular season dwindling down, the tigers find themselves fighting for third place in a division they were believed to win going away. Poor coaching, injuries, and a lack of disclipine has plagued this team all season. The tigers look to get above .500 when they travel to manual stadium to face a squad that has all the confidence in the world. Offense The offense definitely showed promise and looked like what the... Read More →

By DragonFire - A Not So Brief History of the Bowling Green-Warren Central Rivalry Friday’s game against Warren Central will mark the 999th football game in Bowling Green High history, and the 100th game against a Warren County opponent. (Side note: Mother nature denied some incredible symmetry in the event when the Bryan Station game got rained out earlier this year.

Once upon a time, there were no teams within Warren County that even existed to play the Bowling Green Purples. Most of the small community... Read More →
