Today's Sports

  • The professionals start on...

    Football is in full swing with the middle school up to college games going full tilt.  There are many assumptions made by fans and coaches during football as well as other sports I would assume, but I know first hand about football.  
    Football fans seem to think that it is their God given right to holler at anyone and everyone who they think is doing their job poorly.  
    Already in this young season I have heard fans screaming at coaches and of course, the officials.

    Middle school football off to
    a roaring start
    The seventh and eighth grade middle school teams are off to 3-0 starts this year after last Thursday’s blitz of Nicholas County.  
    The second games of the season were in Fleming County where the seventh grade won 24-6 and the eighth grade took a 30-0 win over the middle school Panthers.

  • Soccer Fillies win two of three...

    The Harrison County Fillies entered the soccer match in Frankfort Monday night with a two-game winning streak against some very good competition and a 2-2-1 season record.  
    The Franklin County Flyers had beaten their last three opponents by 10-0 scores en route to a 5-2 record against the tough Lexington schools.  
    The Flyers defeated the Fillies by a 4-2 score after a tough battle with the Fillies scoring on penalty kicks.  

  • Pirates big plays scuttle...

    “We have to get to the point where we eliminate the big plays and we can win games like this one,” commented Coach Mark Carroll after Friday’s 34-7 loss to Belfry. “It’s a learning process and we just didn’t come up with the big defensive plays when we needed them.”

  • Volleyball Fillies fall to 5-2...

    Harrison County has a very good volleyball team. Just how good remains to be seen, but Coach Bill Faulkner likes the potential.  
    “We lost our last two matches to two of the better teams we will see in our region,” said Faulkner after the Tuesday night loss at home to Campbell County.  “We played right with Campbell County and actually thought we won the second set until the penalty was called.”  
    The penalty was for a hand in the net, which converted a 25-23 win to a 24-all tie and an eventual 24-26 loss for the Fillies.

  • Breds soccer team loses tough...

    In a very energetic and contrasting match, the Harrison County Thorobreds soccer team fell by a 2-1 margin at Montgomery County on Thursday.  
    The first half was all Montgomery County on offense as the Indians ran their action plan well and were constantly putting heat on the Thorobreds’ defense.  
    A couple of defensive lapses by the Breds, and the Indians took a 2-0 lead into the half.  
    The contrast came in the second half as the Thorobreds took over with the ball and had the home team back on its heels the entire period.  

  • Harrison County’s Thorobred...

    Harrison County’s Thorobred golfers continued with four matches last week in all of which they played very competitively.  
    The Fillies too had one match where they were edged by Montgomery County last Tuesday by a 162-174 score. In this match, senior Katelin Martin led the way with 54 with Kristen Aubrey shooting a 56 and Sarah Holland 64.
    The Fillies next match is Wednesday at Pendleton County followed by a match at Nicholas on Thursday.

  • Good judgment and college...

    When a football team is in the huddle, the quarterback is the one who calls the play whether he makes the decision or it is sent in from the sidelines.
    When the team gets to the line of scrimmage, he then decides whether the play call will be successful against the defensive formation or an audible needs to be called.  
    If you are a fan or a member of the team you hope that the quarterback’s judgment is sound and the decisions he makes will be the right ones.
