Bears defeat Trinity; advance in Touchstone Energy All "A" Tournament

Zach Burden and Alex Hudnall were WLBQ co-players of the game; they are awaiting a post-game interview with Smokin' Joe Morris.

Butler County continued its winning ways last week with a pair of wins over Whitesville Trinity and Frederick Fraize, respectively.  The Bears notched another 12th District win on Friday over Trinity, 73-42.  On Saturday, Butler County cruised to a 87-46 win over Frederick Fraize High School (Cloverport) in the Touchstone Energy All "A" Tournament at Hancock County High School.    

Neither game was ever in doubt as the Bears took control early on and put the game out of reach.

Prep Football: Aces trump Bears 45-0

Dylan Havens was air-borne Friday night!

An Owensboro Catholic touchdown with only four seconds remaining in the first half proved to be a momentum game changer on Friday night as the Aces cruised in the second half to a 45-0 win in Morgantown over Butler County.  Though a lopsided score in the end, the game was competitive throughout as the Bears threatened to score multiple times but, nevertheless, weren't able to find the elusive end zone.  Turnovers, penalties, and poor field position hindered the Bears' scoring efforts for much of the game.
