  • Royals trump Breds with strength and speed at Mason County Friday

    The Harrison County Thorobreds fell to 3-2 for the season Friday night in the rain at Maysville with a 41-6 loss. 

    The Royals of Class 3A are now 4-1 having only lost to power house Danville the first game of the year. 

    Mason County is one of the better teams in their class and should go a long way in the playoffs barring injuries to key players. 

    Injuries continue to plague the Thorobreds as, after losing seniors Caleb Reeder and Cory Nichols in successive weeks, Shane Fowler went down with a concussion in the first quarter Friday night.

  • Three wins for soccer Fillies boosts record

    The Harrison County Fillies are one of the teams for which you hear the old cliché ‘they are better than their record.’ 

    In this case, it is very true as the Fillies went into last week with a 2-8-2 record, having lost to some of the state’s better teams.  

    Beginning last Thursday with Model and going through Monday against Sayre, the Fillies proved just how misleading their record is as they took three straight wins from good opposition.
