    The inability to sustain defensive pressure and key penalties led the way to the Harrison County Thorobreds losing an important, 28-18, game at Gallatin County Friday night.  
    The game played before nearly a full house in Warsaw was one that the Breds had within their grasp, but the mistake-prone defense could not stop the Wildcats in the second half.
    Sophomore Malik Powell brought the opening kick off back to the Harrison County 41-yard line for good field position to begin the contest.
