  • 2011 tomato trials

    This year turned out better than last is the first piece of good news.
    In 2010 I wrote, “Sadly, this year was sort of a bust for the vast majority of what I planted.” I can’t do that year after year so thank goodness the tomatoes and zucchini kept pace this time around.  
    Since 2006 I have been bringing my personal tomato trials (and tribulations) to my readers.  

  • Soccer Fillies win two of three against top competition

    The Harrison County Fillies entered the soccer match in Frankfort Monday night with a two-game winning streak against some very good competition and a 2-2-1 season record.  
    The Franklin County Flyers had beaten their last three opponents by 10-0 scores en route to a 5-2 record against the tough Lexington schools.  
    The Flyers defeated the Fillies by a 4-2 score after a tough battle with the Fillies scoring on penalty kicks.  

  • Pirates big plays scuttle Thorobreds 34-7 Friday night

    “We have to get to the point where we eliminate the big plays and we can win games like this one,” commented Coach Mark Carroll after Friday’s 34-7 loss to Belfry. “It’s a learning process and we just didn’t come up with the big defensive plays when we needed them.”

  • Volleyball Fillies fall to 5-2 with losses to Boone and Campbell counties

    Harrison County has a very good volleyball team. Just how good remains to be seen, but Coach Bill Faulkner likes the potential.  
    “We lost our last two matches to two of the better teams we will see in our region,” said Faulkner after the Tuesday night loss at home to Campbell County.  “We played right with Campbell County and actually thought we won the second set until the penalty was called.”  
    The penalty was for a hand in the net, which converted a 25-23 win to a 24-all tie and an eventual 24-26 loss for the Fillies.

  • Breds soccer team loses tough one at Montgomery County, ties LCA

    In a very energetic and contrasting match, the Harrison County Thorobreds soccer team fell by a 2-1 margin at Montgomery County on Thursday.  
    The first half was all Montgomery County on offense as the Indians ran their action plan well and were constantly putting heat on the Thorobreds’ defense.  
    A couple of defensive lapses by the Breds, and the Indians took a 2-0 lead into the half.  
    The contrast came in the second half as the Thorobreds took over with the ball and had the home team back on its heels the entire period.  

  • Harrison County’s Thorobred golfers showing improvement as season goes forward

    Harrison County’s Thorobred golfers continued with four matches last week in all of which they played very competitively.

    The Fillies next match is Wednesday at Pendleton County followed by a match at Nicholas on Thursday.

  • Good judgment and college football

    When a football team is in the huddle, the quarterback is the one who calls the play whether he makes the decision or it is sent in from the sidelines.
    When the team gets to the line of scrimmage, he then decides whether the play call will be successful against the defensive formation or an audible needs to be called.  
    If you are a fan or a member of the team you hope that the quarterback’s judgment is sound and the decisions he makes will be the right ones.
