    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.

  • 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.
