  • Williams rushes past Breds

    Clark County running back Ryan Williams stole the show on Friday night as the visiting Cardinals rained on Harrison Countys home opener, blasting the Breds 44-0.

    Williams wasted no time in exerting his influence on the game by taking the handoff on the Cards first play from scrimmage and out-racing the entire Harrison County defense for a 90-yard TD run.

    A much-needed rain started falling about 45 minutes prior to the 7:30 kick-off ... much-needed by the community, but not by Harrison County head coach Aaron Stepp.
