  • Breds second in Soccer Classic, lose at Rowan Co. 2-1 Tuesday

    After a bruising 1-0 defeat at the hands, head and feet of Bishop Brossart on Thursday night, the Harrison County Thorobreds returned the 1-nil favor as they defeated Campbell County in the final game of the Thorobreds Classic Saturday at LeBus Field.
    The match was full of ups and downs as the emotions and effort of the players on both teams seemed to go from high to low with little or no warning.  
    Because of the roller coaster-type effort, the Breds won by the close one-goal margin though they dominated play through out the match.  

  • Fillies trounce Dayton, lose a close one at East Jessamine

    The Harrison County Fillies soccer team wrapped up the first win of the season as they pounded Dayton, 8-0, Wednesday night at LeBus Field.

    Sophomore Hannah Thomas and junior Haley Carr each had two goals for the Fillies in the match that was never close.

    Sarah Holland again led the Fillies as the seventh grader shot a 55. Morgan Grose was the next top scorer as she and fellow freshman, Sarah Durbin, shot a 59 and a 61 while sophomore Morgan Nelly finished the scoring with a 69.  
    The Lady Wildcats bested the Fillies 187 to 242 in this nine-hole battle.

  • Hometown Pharmacy Thorobred Bowl loss for the Breds

    The Jim Carr era of Harrison County football did not start the way it was planned or desired by the Harrison County High School Thorobreds.  
    The inability to stop Sheldon Clark on third and fourth down led to a 28-13 defeat for the Breds in the second Hometown Pharmacy Thorobred Bowl.  
    The Thorobreds took the opening kick off and marched down the field from their own 40 to the Sheldon Clark 31 before turning the ball over on downs.  

  • How can we help?

    In his first post game interview as a high school coach, Jim Carr made mention that our opposition was bigger and stronger than we were and if you attended the game, he didn’t need to tell you that.  
    It was evident by looking at the teams and seeing the dominance of Sheldon Clark’s line early in the game.  
    Harrison County was better conditioned and played more evenly in the second half, but the difference was critical when one considers the outcome of the game.
