  • Highlands flies past Thorobreds Friday in 77-0 offensive display

    The No. 1-ranked team in Class 4A showed that its ranking was no mistake as the Bluebirds ran over the Harrison County Thorobreds 77-0 Friday night in Fort Thomas.  
    The Bluebirds scored on 10 of their 11 offensive possessions as the Thorobreds’ defense continued to have trouble tackling their opponents.  
    It wasn’t only tackling though as the Bluebirds showed anyone who wanted to see how a well-oiled football machine plays the game.

    “Robertson County has a nice team with some good size and we had to play well to beat them in straight sets,” he noted. “It is always important to win the district matches.”
