    The Harrison County soccer Breds came out over confident in Tuesday’s season opener with Mason County and paid the price. Similar to last year’s district match up, the Royals were not to be taken lightly.

    Early in the match, the fleet-footed Mason County forwards took advantage of Harrison County defender errors and were one-on-one with goal keeper Max Ferguson.

  • Always for the underdog!

    I believe that most Americans have a soft spot in their heart for the underdog.  This is especially true in sports, unless the opposition to the underdog happens to be a particular favorite team.  My article this week is about an underdog kind of situation that turned out better than one could have hoped.

    Jim Furnish’s horrific accident on Thursday could not have happened at a worse time.  

    While Jim is extremely busy with farming, working last week had more packed into it than usual.
