Volleyball Fillies lose fifth straight
match 2-0 to Lexington Christian Thursday
The Harrison County Volleyball Fillies’ ball handling was again a problem as the Lexington Christian Lady Eagles raced past them on the Hilltop Thursday night.  
The undefeated Lady Eagles won in two straight sets 25-16 and 25-10 to improve their record to 4-0 for the year.  (Since this game the Lady Eagles have improved to 9-0)  
Jordan Doram led the Fillies with seven kills, but Harrison County could not compete with the tough outside attack of the Lady Eagles.  
The Fillies now stand at 5-7 with a road match on Wednesday at Campbell County (6-7) and a Thursday home event with district rival Nicholas County (1-13).


Fillies soccer record 2-2-3
after two ties last week
The Harrison County Fillies soccer team battled to two tie games beginning last Wednesday at the Harrison County Athletic Complex.  
The Grant County Lady Braves, who are undefeated for the season at 4-0-2, and the Fillies fought to a 1-1 tie after the 80 minutes of play.  
Senior Johnna Marshall put a corner kick into the goal for the Fillies score past Grant County senior goal keeper MacKenzie Tucker. Junior Mollie Pelfrey scored the lone Grant County score to knot the game.
On Saturday morning, the Fillies left town early for a 10 a.m. match with the Lady Vikings of Rowan County. The match again ended with a 1-1 score after the allotted time. Rowan County freshman Montanna Minor scored for the home squad while Hannah Thomas used an assist by Randi Schweitzer to push one past Rowan County’s Ashley Burton for the Harrison County score.  
The tie left the Lady Vikings with a 4-3-2 record while the Fillies are 2-2-3. Harrison County then traveled to Russell but lightning cancelled the game between the 4-1 Red Devils and the Fillies.
“We dominated play in the second half of both games but were unable to score,” remarked Coach Kim Jenkins. “We are playing well right now and just need to focus on what we are doing right and we will score more goals.”
The Fillies host rival Montgomery County (2-3) at the athletic complex on Wednesday with the matches beginning at 6 p.m.  They travel this Saturday to 1-6 Walton Verona before returning to the Hilltop for a Monday match up with Paris, who currently stands at 1-4 for the year.

Thorobreds golfers improving but lose twice
“Some of the boys are playing a little smarter,” said Coach Jason Crisp. “Tuesday Richard Davis broke 40 for the first player to do so this year.”
On Thursday, the Breds played host to Kevin Letcher’s Montgomery County Indian golfers and fell by a 164 to 178 score. This was an improvement of eight strokes from the last time the two teams met on Aug. 16. Zach Hernandez and Davis were the leaders for the home Breds in the match played at the Cynthiana Country Club. They each shot 44 while Jacob Jones and Stephen Lemons both shot 45s.  
Tuesday evening the Breds dropped a match with Mason County, again at the Cynthiana Country Club. Davis led the way with 39 followed by Sam Levi with 41, Jones with 43 and Peyton Browning ballooned up to 51 for the final 174 total.  
The Royals had three players below 40 and a 41 for their high, which produced the 154 score and the 20-stroke win.  
The next golf action for Harrison County will be Wednesday when the Fillies travel to Bourbon County and on Thursday when the Fillies again hit the road this time to Pendleton County. The Thorobreds will play on Friday also on the road when they travel to Montgomery County for another match with the Indians.
