  • Fillies beat Mason County in district opener, advance to Wednesday’s finals

    After last week’s 3-0 loss to Franklin County at LeBus Field, Coach Kevin Gaunce was looking for a complete 80-minute effort from his Harrison County Fillies.  
    He got just that Monday in the opener of the 38th District tournament in Maysville.  
    A key stop on a penalty kick by goal keeper Chelsea Ingram propelled the Harrison County Fillies to a 3-1 win over Mason County Monday night as the Fillies advanced to the finals scheduled for Wednesday.

    Austin Jackson’s extra point made it 7-0 and the Breds were on their way.

  • The world is full of mud

    I was not unfortunate enough to have to serve in Vietnam so what I know about it comes from reading, watching television and talking to those who were there.  
    I understand that during the monsoon season, it was awfully muddy in Vietnam.  
    While not nearly as important, it was also awfully muddy in Cynthiana on Friday night.  
    The soldiers could really do nothing about the mud, neither could the football players on Friday night.

    The original Senior Night was planned for the Grant County game on Tuesday, but heavy rains and severe weather wiped that out.
    The Breds were coming off a 6-3 win over St. Patrick in the last home performance in the Athletic Complex where they had improved their record to 5-8-1.  

  • Breds lose mud fest to Holmes 12-6 Friday

    The best description of Friday night’s football game on the Hilltop was that of an undisciplined mud fest.  
    Covington Holmes and Harrison County combined for 21 penalties for 178 yards, which signifies a lack of discipline for both teams.  
    The Thorobreds tallied 102 yards in penalties, which was more than the evening’s total Harrison County offense.
