  • First-half turnovers spell...

    Nine turnovers and 15 penalties make it very hard to win. 

    It only took six seconds to get a five-yard penalty, which set the tone for the first half. 

    The Harrison County Thorobreds opened the scoring after the teams each had the ball one time without success. Eric Lewis intercepted a Matt Tuttle pass on the 10-yard line and ran it back to his own 30. 

    On the next play, back-up quarterback Tyler Martin, playing wide receiver, hit Shane Fowler on a 70-yard end-around pass play to make it 6-0 Harrison County.

    Reds historian visits Cynthiana Tuesday

    Greg Rhodes, team historian for the Cincinnati Reds, visited Cynthiana Tuesday to speak to the Cynthiana Lions Club members and guests. Rhodes was the guest of Chris Winkle, who is general manager of WCYN radio, which is a Red’s affiliate. 

  • Volleyball evens record at 2-2...

    Thursday night’s volleyball matches left Coach Bill Faulkner a little out of sorts after George Rogers Clark beat the Harrison County Fillies in two straight games to win the varsity match 2-0. 

    The Fillies dropped the first set 20-25, but had a 23-20 lead in the second only to lose by 23-25 to end the match. 

    “I was disappointed that we had a three-point lead and lost it,” said Faulkner. “We will work on this as a team.”

  • Golfers have matches with...

    Last Thursday, the junior varsity, the middle school and the Fillies golf teams traveled to the Carnico Country Club to face the Nicholas County Bluejacket squads. 

    The boys’ JV took the victory by a 30-stroke margin as they defeated Nicholas County 152 to 182. Jake Jones was rewarded for the hard work that he did last summer as he was the medalist for the day with a score of 44. 

    Zach Hernandez added a 52 and Peyton Browning a 54 for the Breds’ JV. Chris George led Nicholas with a 49.

  • Breds finish second in Thorobred...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds soccer team won a thriller on Thursday night over Newport Central Catholic on a Johnson Garrison goal with slightly less that 23 seconds left in regulation play. 

    The Newport squad was undefeated going into the match having defeated Western Hills 3-0 on Tuesday in the opening round of the Classic. The Breds trailed late in the second half when Kyle Foster scored his second goal of the night to tie it at two. 

  • Scrimmage with Rowan County ends...

    Playing from the 40 yard line in, on half the field, the full contact scrimmage with Rowan County ended in pretty much a draw Friday night. 

    Coach Mark Carroll wasn’t sure if the score was 3-2 or 3-3 touchdowns, but came away knowing that there were still some parts of the game that needed work. 

    “I was pretty happy with the offense overall,” said Carroll.  “We still need to tackle better on defense.” 

  • Harrison golfers continue busy...

    The Harrison County High school golf teams’ busy season continues as the Breds squad played three matches and the Fillies team played two in the last four days. 

    On Saturday, the Thorobreds were in a 12-team tournament at Powell County where they finished eighth with a team total 334. 

    Eric Sanders led the way for the Thorobreds with an 80, followed by Charlie Ammerman and Anthony Shirley, who each scored 81. Shalyn Barnes wrapped up the scoring for Harrison County with a 92.

  • No such thing as a “...

    This is not an article about the pay scale of a coach when the sport they coach is considered a “minor sport.” 

    It probably should be and more than likely there will be one sometime, but not today. 

    This is more about the time it takes to play and coach the “minor sports” and the vast number of people who don’t know or care to learn about the sports. Last year, when I went to my first cheerleader competition, I learned then how little I knew about what it took to be a cheerleader or a sponsor.

  • Soccer Breds open with big win,...

    In the first-ever soccer game played at the Harrison County Athletic Complex, the Harrison County Thorobreds Soccer team routed Simon Kenton 5-0 Tuesday evening. 

    Playing together as a unit, the Harrison County squad dominated from the start. 

    “We may have been a little tentative at first as we adjusted to the narrower field, but once we got started we took care of business,” said Coach Nick Hill. “Everyone played defense when they needed to and were very productive offensively.”
