  • Breds are too little, too late at Estill County Tuesday night

    A lackluster beginning led to a bad ending Tuesday night as the Harrison County Thorobreds lost by a 60-57 score at Estill County.

    Harrison County had a final attempt with less than four seconds to play but junior Dillon Pulliam’s three-point attempt was short and time ran out on the Thorobreds.

    The Hilltop gym was a buzz last Wednesday night as a good crowd anticipated the regional rivalry being renewed between the Bishop Brossart Mustangs and the Harrison County Thorobreds.  
    The junior varsity preliminary set the stage as the Breds, after trailing for the majority of the game, came back for a 47-38 win in a tough, physical battle.

    This happened to me again this week as my long time friend and fellow football official John Swinford passed away.
    John was many things to many different people, a husband, a friend, a father, a brother, as well as just an all around good man.
