Wednesday night, Oct. 3, was scheduled to be Senior Night for the Harrison County Fillies when they played host to the Lady Panthers of Frankfort.  
Unfortunately, Mother Nature did not cooperate and lightning doomed the match which was cancelled after a few minutes were played in the varsity contest.  
Frankfort arrived late and the junior varsity match was cut in half with the two playing to a scoreless tie though Harrison County outplayed the Frankfort junior varsity.  
The five seniors, Elizabeth Brooks, Haley Carr, Taylor Fry, Marly Jenkins and Madelyn Judy were honored between matches in a ceremony that featured comments from each girl.  
The five, including Jenkins who is out for the season with a knee injury, started the game but the battle lasted only five minutes when lightning stopped it and, though the teams waited for a while, the game was finally cancelled.
Monday night the Fillies traveled to Scott High and came home with a 2-1 defeat at the hands of the Lady Eagles (7-9-1)  
The Fillies led at the half 1-0 on a Carr goal from a corner kick by Fry.  
The Lady Eagles scored with about 20 minutes left in the contest when one of the Fillies inadvertently shielded goal keeper Chelsea Ingram from the opponent and the junior never saw the ball coming as the goal tied the score at 1 goal apiece.  
The game-winning goal was scored with four minutes to play when a Harrison County foul gave the Scott High team a direct kick and the buried it from the left front for the 2-1 win.  
“We are doing some things better,” admitted Coach Kim Jenkins. “But we have to work on finishing strong and even picking up the intensity down the stretch.”  
The loss left the Fillies at 7-6-1 with one regular season match left to play. That match is Wednesday night when the Fillies travel to Frankfort to visit Coach Jon Sutphen and the Lady Flyers of Franklin County (4-12-1).  
The district begins on Tuesday, Oct. 15, when the Fillies travel to Pendleton County to face Mason County (5-6-3).
