  • Breds ease past Cardinals on a cold shooting night 58-47

    George Rogers Clark owned an eight-game winning streak over the Harrison County Thorobreds until Tuesday night on the Hilltop.  
    If someone would have said that the Breds were going to hit 50 percent from the foul line, 30 percent from the three point arc and 36 percent from the field and win by 11, hardly anyone would have believed it.  
    That is just what happened Tuesday as the Breds, after a determined if not artistic start, bested the Cardinals in a game where the lid that was on the basket was rarely removed.   

  • Strange items are clogging the sewers

    I remember thinking “Eweh” several years ago when I heard about the man who inadvertently dropped his dentures in the toilet but was able to retrieve them a few days later at Cynthiana’s Waste Water Treatment Plant.
    Why would you want those suckers back?
    Oh the places they’ve traveled! The last place they would travel would be the waste water treatment plant as far as I would have been concerned.
    No. He popped those babies into some Polident and right back onto his gums they nestled.

  • Fillies win second on Saturday, drop close one at Bracken Co.

    Coach Kim Furnish summed up the weekend with one comment on Saturday night.  
    “After the first quarter, we finally went out and took care of business,” the second-year Fillies mentor said.
    This could have applied to the first 13 games of the year as the Fillies looked like they learned how to put a team away Saturday night after a season-to-date of leading and losing the lead.  
    Thursday night the Fillies played the 10-2 Lady Bears to a tough 53-46 loss after trailing by only one point going into the final eight minute stanza.  

  • Some bits and pieces to start the New Year

    My column about the home court advantage possibilities has gotten several responses and much to my surprise all favorable.   
    Since the Fillies’ game at Williamstown they have encountered the same type of treatment on the road in at least one other gym.

  • Breds keep rolling with two weekend victories

    The Harrison County Thorobreds improved to 10-5 for the year with a 58-53 home win Friday over Bracken County and a 96-58 smashing of Paris in the Bourbon County seat on Saturday night.
    Coach Larry Kendall, while certainly happy to win, thought the Bracken County game could have been played much better by the Thorobreds.

  • Fillies take a step back in loss at Mason Co.

    After the game Monday night in Mason County, Fillies’ Assistant Coach Chris Reffett said that the coaches felt like the team took a step backward in the stifling loss.  
    “We thought that we had made some improvement with our ball handling and ability to withstand defensive pressure, especially after Saturday’s game, but tonight it was like we had never worked on it at all,” he concluded.
    The Fillies began the game with one of the worst quarters of the season.
