    The first game of the Cumberland Valley Bowl was much like the second half of the game with East Jessamine to the Harrison County Thorobreds.  
    The Breds gained just one yard shy of 400 yards for the night and scored 35 points, but the defense could not contain North Laurel’s running game and gave up 449 yards in the 45-35 loss.

    Mercer County won the match last Thursday, 8-1.  Harrison County won the contest to see how many penalty cards one team could receive, 9-2.

    It is still very early in the soccer season but Harrison County’s Fillies got a glimpse of where they are with one of the better teams in the 10th Region Wednesday when they faced Bishop Brossart.
    The Lady Mustangs arrived on the Hilltop with a 2-2 record playing in the tough northern Kentucky area.  
    Bishop Brossart wasted little time as they scored the go-ahead goal with only three minutes played to take a 1-0 lead.

  • Some football season thoughts

    Finally, football is here with college ball beginning last weekend for some smaller schools and the big guns beginning this week.  
    The smaller school games are just as important to them as the big school games are to the big schools. However, the big media people are focused on the big schools.  
    High school has also started and while the Breds have dropped the first two games, there is much improvement and spirits are still high on the Hilltop.
