Bears 33-0 Bounce Back Win

The BCHS Bears improved to (6-1) overall with a key district win over the Union Co. Braves by the score of 33-0, Friday night at Morganfield, Ky.  The Bears most notable part of the game would have to be the defense. Tossing another shutout, the Bears almost seemed angry over the previous week.  Union Co. total offense on the night ended up in the negative category. That’s right, negative yardage; on the night Union Co. had only one first down, and a negative (-12) twelve yards total offense.


From the Sidelines Week #7

The Butler County Bears loaded the buses and headed to Union County on Friday night.  With the combination of a two hour road trip and the beginning of Fall Break the Butler County crowd was a little smaller than normal.  Fans may not of showed up for the game, several listened to the game on BTR 1570 AM WLBQ,  but the Bears did as they won 33-0.
