  • Fillies continue close losses, fall at Bourbon and Fleming

    The saying ‘close but no cigar’ is getting all to familiar for the Harrison County Fillies as they dropped two more close games that were within their grasp.  
    On Saturday, the Fillies lost to Bourbon County (13-7) in Paris by a score of 52-49 in one of their better efforts of the season.  
    A couple of critical misses late in the game along with an abundance of fourth quarter turnovers spelled doom for the Harrison County quintet.

  • Is it in the rule book?

    My mentor in officiating and one of the best people ever, John Swinford had an answer to coaches not wanting a rule to be enforced.  
    He never, to my knowledge, actually used it but he had a great comeback when a particular rule was not liked by a coach.  
    John would say something like we should let each coach line out the rules from the book that they do not want called and see how that works out.
