    Pink was the color of the day Saturday but the St. Catharine College volleyball team was instead feeling blue. They took on that different shade after dropping Mid-South Conference matches to visiting UVA-Wise and Pikeville College. The gate proceeds for Dig Pink Saturday went to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

    Adam Stevenson’s Patriots, now 5-27 overall and 1-7 in conference play, had both matches in their grasp but let them slip away as both matches went all five games.

    For the first time in 13 years, the Washington County Football Commanders beat the Bardstown Tigers Friday night. And they did it despite having three touchdowns called back on penalties. In fact, flags were in abundance Friday night as a total of 20 were thrown, 10 for each team. The score was close for much of the game, but a last-minute touchdown on a fake punt sealed the 35-21 win for the Commanders, who earned home field advantage in the first round of the playoffs.

    Saturday was a huge day for St. Catharine College athletics, as the Patriots were at home to play two volleyball matches, two soccer games and two baseball games. And the day was Patriot-perfect as the home team won every contest. But they were only able to do so because of some last-second heroics in the men’s soccer match that gave them a 3-2 win in overtime.
