  • Soccer Breds, Fillies close out seasons with wins at Franklin County

    Wednesday and Thursday saw the last regular season matches for the Harrison County Soccer Fillies and Thorobreds as they both closed out the season with a road match at Franklin County.
    The Fillies’ match was a very physical affair as Coach Jon Sutphin’s Lady Flyers led by Savannah Sutphin pushed the Fillies to the brink before the last 10 minutes of the match.  
    The Lady Flyers, who ended the season 4-12-1, played anything like a team that was struggling to win.

    One week from last Monday Houston Texan quarterback Matt Schaub had a “visitor or visitors” show up at his home in a Houston suburb to berate him for his poor performance by most accounts in the game the Sunday before which the Texans lost to San Francisco badly.  
    At the time, the Texans record stood at 2-3 though they were a very popular pick to make it to the Super Bowl this season.  
    The “guests” while screaming at the quarterback also took photos of his wife and children in order to insinuate a threat to them as well.
