    Colts football season ends with
    heart breaker at Georgetown Middle
    Football, like life, does not allow one to pick the times that you are not up to your best performance. In fact, most times when you are not at your best is the time when you most need to be. That was the case for the Harrison County eighth grade Colts Thursday when they traveled for the semi final rounds of the playoffs to Georgetown Middle.

    A third and fourth grade Grant County Youth Football team will not be finishing its season or playing in this year’s playoffs.
    The team, the Blue Mighty Pros, have been suspended from the league for the remainder of the season, causing a firestorm of emotions from parents, boosters and league officials.
    The controversy started last fall when Craig Ruber, coach of the Blue Mighty Pros, gave some of his players a Walton-Verona jersey and told them to urinate on it.

  • HCMS teams rout Powell County

    The Harrison County Middle School Colts closed out the regular season Thursday night with a double header win over Powell County.  
    First, the seventh grade squad built a 20-6 lead in the third quarter and then held off the seventh grade Pirates for a 28-18 win. Max Ogden scored three times for Harrison County and Brice Henderson once as the Colts made good use of the line’s blocking as they ran the ball successfully.

  • Baseball continues without Reds...

    I would have enjoyed the National League Championship Series more if the Reds would have been playing the Cardinals.  
    I really believe that they are the two best teams in the National League despite the Giants winning the series with the Reds.  
    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.  

  • Harrison County wrestling faces...

    Coach Luke Tucker begins his second year as head varsity coach with a young but veteran group of young men returning to the wrestling mat.  
    Gone from last year are four senior wrestlers who scored many points in their years at Harrison County, each of whom will be hard to replace.  

  • Breds drop 61-0 decision in...

    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.

  • Fillies win first district since...

    The Harrison County Fillies advanced to the 10th Region tournament as champions of the 38th District for the first time in nine years.
    On Saturday, they overcame an early Pendleton County goal to defeat the Lady Cats 3-1 in Maysville.  
    The tournament, hosted by St. Patrick’s, was a four-team affair with Mason County and the host team losing in the first round before the Fillies capped the tourney by winning on Saturday.

  • Breds win soccer 38th District,...

    The Harrison County soccer Thorobreds were in a pressure-packed, emotional situation last Thursday evening at the Athletic Complex as they faced arch rival Pendleton County for the championship of the 38th District.  
    The Breds were late-season 3-1 winners over Pendleton County at LeBus Field but the district competition reflected the urgency of winning so as not to be in the loser’s bracket for the 10th Region.  
    Another carrot for the winner was the right to host the 10th Region tournament which means home field advantage and much more.
