  • HCMS teams rout Powell County

    The Harrison County Middle School Colts closed out the regular season Thursday night with a double header win over Powell County.  
    First, the seventh grade squad built a 20-6 lead in the third quarter and then held off the seventh grade Pirates for a 28-18 win. Max Ogden scored three times for Harrison County and Brice Henderson once as the Colts made good use of the line’s blocking as they ran the ball successfully.

  • Baseball continues without Reds, should UK football fans expect more

    I would have enjoyed the National League Championship Series more if the Reds would have been playing the Cardinals.  
    I really believe that they are the two best teams in the National League despite the Giants winning the series with the Reds.  
    Injuries are part of every sport and sometimes they come at the worst time like the injury to Johnny Cueto, but I still believe the Reds had the better lineup even without him.  

  • Harrison County wrestling faces tough season

    Coach Luke Tucker begins his second year as head varsity coach with a young but veteran group of young men returning to the wrestling mat.  
    Gone from last year are four senior wrestlers who scored many points in their years at Harrison County, each of whom will be hard to replace.  

  • Breds drop 61-0 decision in Covington Saturday, face Wildcats Friday

    When the score is 61-0 after the game it is hard to think of one play that may have made a big difference. But that is the case in the Harrison County Thorobreds’ 61-0 loss to Covington Catholic on Saturday afternoon.  
    A first quarter fumble could have made all of the difference in the world when the outcome of the game is concerned.  
    Not to say that the outmanned Thorobreds would have defeated the 6-2 Colonels but the score could have been a lot different.

  • Fillies win first district since 2003, advance to region Wednesday

    The Harrison County Fillies advanced to the 10th Region tournament as champions of the 38th District for the first time in nine years.
    On Saturday, they overcame an early Pendleton County goal to defeat the Lady Cats 3-1 in Maysville.  
    The tournament, hosted by St. Patrick’s, was a four-team affair with Mason County and the host team losing in the first round before the Fillies capped the tourney by winning on Saturday.

  • Breds win soccer 38th District, host 10th Region Tuesday

    The Harrison County soccer Thorobreds were in a pressure-packed, emotional situation last Thursday evening at the Athletic Complex as they faced arch rival Pendleton County for the championship of the 38th District.  
    The Breds were late-season 3-1 winners over Pendleton County at LeBus Field but the district competition reflected the urgency of winning so as not to be in the loser’s bracket for the 10th Region.  
    Another carrot for the winner was the right to host the 10th Region tournament which means home field advantage and much more.  

  • Soccer Breds advance to region semifinals with 4-3 overtime win Tuesday

    It was almost one month ago exactly that the Cardinals of George Rogers Clark defeated the Harrison County Thorobreds 1-nil at the Athletic Complex in Cynthiana.  
    Tuesday night the same two teams met on the same field, this time, however, it was to see who advanced and who went home in the 10th Region tournament.  
    The outcome was quite different as senior Kyle Foster sent a penalty kick around four defenders and past the Cardinal goal keeper for the score and a 4-3 victory in overtime for the Thorobreds.

  • Fall is the time to move houseplants indoors

    Fall has arrived with two threats of frost so far (but none that materialized for the farm).
    Frost is inevitable, of course, it happens every year so let’s get organized for the return of our tropical to the not-so-great indoors.
    The lush plants that spent the summer out on the patio or are now faced with a less than ideal existence indoors…but there are some things we can do (including lowering our expectations in some cases) to help them get through the winter in the healthiest way possible.
