Landmark News Service

Friday night may have marked the end of the regular season for both the Bardstown and North Oldham football teams, but it was certainly one to remember as the pair traded plenty of blows in a 22-14 Tigers win.

North Oldham got out to a quick start, putting the game’s first points on the board just five minutes in as Mustangs’ running back Josh Smith broke loose and rambled in from 79 yards out.

It took Bardstown nearly 10 minutes to answer but the Tigers finally found paydirt with nine minutes to play in the half as Donshais Calbert plunged in from the 1-yard line to pull within one as the extra point failed.

North Oldham extended its lead to 14-6 five minutes later on a 15-yard Arien Beasley run, but that’s when the wheels fell off for the Mustangs, as Bardstown controlled things from there.

After a 68-yard run from quarterback Keanu Young pulled the Tigers within two at 14-12, they converted on a short run from Dee Yocum to pull even heading into the half.

That momentum continued after the break as Young got another score just five minutes into the second half and then picked up the two-point conversion to give the Tigers all the ammunition they would need to knock off the Mustangs.

Nasty weather kept both teams grounded for the most part and Bardstown made sure to take advantage, outgaining North Oldham by nearly 100 rushing yards at 304-207.

Young was a big reason for that, racking up 117 yards and two touchdowns on 13 carries, while Calbert powered the Tigers as well with 109 yards and a score of his own on 15 touches.

Their North Oldham counterparts, Josh Smith and Arien Beasley, combined for 167 yards and a pair of touchdowns between them. Smith was the more explosive of the duo with a 104 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries, but Beasley chipped in 63 yards and a score as well.

With the win, Bardstown finishes the season at 9-1 and advances to the playoffs as the district’s No. 2 seed. They’ll play host to 3-7 Metcalfe County on Friday at 8 p.m.
