    Colts advance to semis with
    rout of Royal Springs
    The quarter final round of the Bluegrass Conference Tournament was a game the Titans of Royal Springs will not want to remember.
    The 19-2 Harrison County Colts scored the first eight points en route to a 56-25 win over Royal Springs. Floor leader Brock Jenkins scored the first six points in the quarter, which was all Harrison County. In fact, the visitors scored only one field goal in the first half as Harrison County led 25-6 at the end of the second quarter.

  • Fillies battle Lady Indians, fall 74-60

    The most overused cliché in sports is “the game was closer than the score indicated.”
    The Fillies game at Montgomery County Friday night was actually closer than the score indicated as the regional favorite Lady Indians defeated the Fillies 74-60 in a game that was close until the last few minutes.  
    The Fillies were hampered in the second half by an injury to senior guard Emalee Little late in the second quarter sending the veteran guard to the hospital for X-rays.  

  • Breds take three from Bourbon on the Hilltop

    After the initial confusion of the triangle-and-three and the box-and-one defense, the Harrison County Thorobreds pulled away from the Bourbon County Colonels in the second half for a 70-60 win Friday night.  
    Bourbon County began the game with the hand-in-the-face defense on senior Caleb Ford and sophomore Dillon Pulliam and it caused the Harrison County offense to sputter at the beginning of the game.
