    The Harrison County Thorobreds opened the soccer season in Claryville Tuesday night as they visited the Campbell County Camels.

    The Camels came back about five minutes later for a goal of good fortune. Harrison County keeper Chris Ortiz blocked a rocket of a shot but the ball fell at the feet of an unmarked Camel who booted it into the net.
