  • Positive messages are the best

    After the football game last Friday night, it might be hard to stay positive but we must.  
    I am not going to dwell on the game but more this week on positive events, some personal and some high school sports events.  
    The football game, while ugly after we lost a chance to score when it was 13-0, still had a positive in my mind.  That was even in this heated rivalry our team showed restraint and didn’t have any unsportsmanlike penalties or personal fouls.

    The Harrison County Thorobreds fell to 0-9 Friday night as they traveled to Bourbon County (6-3) and lost to the Colonels 49-0.  
    The game was decided midway into the second quarter when the Breds stopped the Colonels on downs and were driving on an eight-play drive into Bourbon County territory when they lost a fumble.

    Coach Kevin Gaunce said after September’s 5-0 loss to Campbell County that he saw some things where his team could give the Lady Camels a real battle if they met again.  
    Gaunce was right as the Harrison County Soccer Fillies gave the Campbell County squad all they wanted in a 2-0 loss Thursday night in the semi-finals of the 10th Region Tournament.

    The Harrison County Fillies basketball team is hard at work preparing for the 2017-18 season.   
    “We are working to be more athletic, to push the ball more,” said Coach Kim Furnish Marshall. “We will run the floor more and take quicker shots.”  
    That doesn’t mean the Fillies in Marshall’s seventh year are all of the sudden going to be careless with the ball.

    It was the first time since 2014 that Harrison County had advanced to the district championship game as the Breds faced the Pendleton County Wildcats.  
    This match was no different from every other time the two teams met as it was a rough-and-tumble affair. The field was wet and play rough, which took its toll on the Thorobreds.  

  • Harrison County football, what...

    Harrison County football currently has an 0-8 record and a date with arch rival Bourbon County coming up next on Friday.  
    No one likes the fact that the Breds haven’t won.  
    The players, the coaches or the parents don’t like it. Well, thank you, Mr. Obvious you might say.  
    Let’s look at some of the factors that have contributed to the record. There are few seniors with experience.

    The Harrison County junior varsity and freshman teams traveled down the road to Paris Monday to do battle with the Bourbon County Colonel squads.  
    Both Harrison County teams were victorious in rather impressive ways as they manhandled the Colonels.
    The freshman game got off to a quick start with the Breds getting on the board first on a Logan Cummins 35-yard touchdown pass to LaDarius Conner.
