The Harrison County Thorobreds opened the soccer season in Claryville Tuesday night as they visited the Campbell County Camels.
After a slow start led to extra defensive pressure early, senior Logan Wiley lit a fire under his teammates with extra hustle and determination that led to the Breds first goal and a 1-nil lead.
The Camels came back about five minutes later for a goal of good fortune. Harrison County keeper Chris Ortiz blocked a rocket of a shot but the ball fell at the feet of an unmarked Camel who booted it into the net.
The gifts of life come to us from persons of all ages. Jesus must have realized this when he suggested that the children around would often lead us.
I recently shared with my church family an incident in my life that verified this truth. I was getting ready to play our over 40 soccer game at Masterson Station in Lexington, when I began to count up the eligible players.
I felt a sense of panic when I realized I was the 11th body there that day.

I have long understood that purslane could be used in salads or soups but never made much of an effort to harvest it until a few years ago.
So, when high summer approaches I am now on the hunt for purslane, considered a noxious weed by most.
I am not the only one who regards purslane with some culinary virtue. A fellow Farm Market farmer at the Belknap Farmers’ Market gave me a taste of his homemade salsa commenting “It is the best way to use purslane.” I was so excited to hear someone else get excited about this so-called weed.
The last scrimmage of the pre-season was held on LeBus Field last Friday with the Breds going down to defeat to the Mercer County Titans, 6-2.
The match was a tale of two halves as Harrison County jumped out to an early lead with good passing and offensive runs.
The Thorobreds scored about 20 minutes into the match on a goal by Jesse Klapheke as he volleyed a rebound off the goal post into the net for a 1-nil advantage.
The offense continued to push the issue as they scored again five minutes later on a goal by Logan Wiley.
