  • Soccer Breds roll past Simon Kenton, lose at home to Montgomery

    Brock Jenkins and Logan Wiley scored second-half goals as the Harrison County Thorobreds shook off the malaise of Saturday to get past Simon Kenton, 2-0, on the Pioneers’ home field.
    “I usually do not schedule Saturday games,” noted Coach Nick Hill. “The players are out of their routine and generally start slow and this was no exception.”  
    Hill said he felt like his team could have well been down by a couple of goals at the half instead of the 0-0 score.
