  • Fillies roll over Lady Eagles 62...

    The Harrison County Fillies used balanced scoring and excellent ball handling to defeat Lexington Christian, 62-39, Saturday in Lexington.  
    Harrison County, in the girls’ first televised game this year, jumped out to a 19-5 lead by the end of the opening quarter.  
    The visiting Fillies were red hot from the field as they made eight of 13 tries including a perfect two for two from behind the three-point line by Chelsea Ingram.  
    In the same time frame, the Lady Eagles were only two of 10 from the field.  

  • Breds even record with 62-55 win...

    “This was the best defense we played all year,” remarked head Thorobreds Basketball Coach Larry Kendall Tuesday after the Breds defeated George Rogers Clark, 62-55. “Sure we had a couple of miscues but overall it was good defense.”  
    The Thorobreds had just evened their season record to 8-8 holding the 12-4 Cardinals to 19 of 67 from the field. George Rogers Clark was a dismal one of 11 from beyond the three-point line to add to their poor accuracy totals.

  • Score 'N' More
  • Thorobreds record evens at 7-7...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds dropped the championship game of the Gateway Classic to Lincoln County, 82-51, in an “ugly” effort Monday night.  
    On Saturday, Cooper High School was the scene of a 72-60 loss, which evened the season record at 7-7.
    The Lincoln County game saw the Patriots score the first 15 points and never look back as they completely dominated play.  
    The score at the end of the first period was 26-4 as the Breds were cold from the field and Lincoln County was red hot.  

  • Fillies lose two close games,...

    After blasting the St. Patrick Lady Saints, 70-13, Friday night, the Harrison County Fillies lost close games to Lewis County and Bracken County.  
    The Fillies’ record now stands at 4-11 following Monday night’s game. Their next game is a Thursday night battle with Augusta on the Hilltop.
    Friday’s game was never a contest as the Fillies took a 14-6 lead by the end of the first period.  
    The second quarter saw St. Patrick held to only three points while the Fillies ran out to a 37-9 lead.  

  • Colts drop pair to Georgetown,...

    The Harrison County Middle School Colts lost two games to Georgetown Middle School Monday night.  
    The seventh grade continued winless as they lost 69-13.  Ethan Lewis and Tayshaun Custard were the leading scorers with three points each.  Isaiah Mann and Blake Robinson each added two points.  
    The seventh grade record is now 0-13.
    The eighth grade Colts, in the words of Coach Glenn Lonaker, “just got out-physicaled.”

  • Wrestlers continue tough...

    The Harrison County High School wrestling team continues to battle a lack of numbers as it competes in some of the more prestigious meets across Kentucky.  
    Injuries and members quitting have caused difficulties in team scoring as the Breds are unable to compete in each weight class.  
    The same problem that plagued football has also been an issue for the wrestlers with many of the same young men that left football doing the same with the wrestling team.

  • A disappointing ending

    Before I go into the football playoffs in the NFL I want to congratulate Trenton Thompson for setting the single game record for points scored for Harrison County High School.  
    Thompson’s 43 points against Cooper Saturday night broke the record of 42 held jointly by Keller Works and Jerry Fogle.

    The Bengals and Steelers both left the playoff race rather unceremoniously over the weekend.  
    Pittsburgh lost to the Ravens in a home game and a game which they were favored to win.
