  • The Reds; what an accommodating...

    Before I get into my topic of the week, I want to lament the plight or seemingly the plight of Big 10 football.  
    After week two of the season, here is a run down of the Big 10 schools.  
    Indiana beat Indiana State 28-10 and was idle the next week.  That wouldn’t seem so good if the others performed better.  
    Illinois barely beat Youngstown State and Western Kentucky and probably couldn’t beat WKU three out of 10 times.  

  • Fillies roll past St. Patrick,...

    Despite playing without three starters, the Harrison County Fillies made short work of the Saints of Maysville St. Patrick Thursday winning 9-1.  
    Coach Kevin Gaunce had challenged his players in practice to get some early goals so they could work on some game time issues. The Fillies answered his challenge.  
    Freshman Charlie Moore put a rebounded ball back into the net for her first varsity goal to open the scoring.  
    Amelia Bolin and Kelby Gaunce put the next two scores in and the rout was on.  

  • Sports beat

    Youth football and cheerleading
    sign-ups to begin
    The Harrison County youth football and cheerleading sign-ups will begin Aug. 21 at the concession stand at Ingles Stadium. The sign-ups will be held Monday through Thursday from 5-6 p.m., rain or shine.
    Football will be Flag (Lower and Upper).
    Cheerleading is for Pre-K through sixth grade.

  • Indians’ offensive attack too...

    Montgomery County’s Indians ran up 557 total yards to 24 for Harrison County as they defeated the Thorobreds 48-0 Friday in Mt. Sterling.  
    The loss leaves the Thorobreds with a 0-3 record while Montgomery County improved to 1-1 for the season.
    The Thorobreds took the opening kick but, as would be the theme for the evening, could not move the ball gaining only one yard in three downs and then punting to Montgomery County.  

  • HCMS Colts fall short against...

    The Harrison County Middle School Colts lost twice to Woodford County Thursday as both the seventh and eighth grade teams were held scoreless.  
    The seventh grade Colts lost 26-0 after trailing by only 12-0 at the half.  
    The Tigers took the opening kick off and took only five plays to score on a 12-yard run.  
    The Colts stopped the extra point try to trail 6-0.
    Harrison County was moving the ball when quarterback Logan Cummins fumbled after a nice run for 14 yards.  

  • HCMS Colts dominated by Elkhorn...

    The Harrison County Middle School seventh and eighth grade Colts faced a daunting task Thursday night in Ingles Stadium as they faced Elkhorn Middle from Franklin County.  
    The seventh grade game started in favor of the Colts as Chris Abbott took the opening kick off 70 yards for a touchdown. Cameron Covington followed with the extra point for an 8-0 Harrison County lead.  
    Elkhorn’s Issaia Israel wasted little time returning the favor as he took the first hand-off from quarterback Ezarious Roller 63 yards for a touchdown.  

  • Harrison County loses 28-18 at...

    The inability to sustain defensive pressure and key penalties led the way to the Harrison County Thorobreds losing an important, 28-18, game at Gallatin County Friday night.  
    The game played before nearly a full house in Warsaw was one that the Breds had within their grasp, but the mistake-prone defense could not stop the Wildcats in the second half.
    Sophomore Malik Powell brought the opening kick off back to the Harrison County 41-yard line for good field position to begin the contest.

  • Cross country competes in two...

    Last Monday, the Harrison County High School and Middle School cross country teams ran at Pendleton County in a four-team meet.  
    The meet consisted of Augusta, Nicholas County, the host Pendleton County and Harrison County.  
    Pendleton County won the boys’ and girls’ high school meets while Harrison County’s Middle School boys won the middle school meet.  
    The girls finished in 13, Abby Cooper; 15, Tamara Lunsford; and 19, Chelsea Bowman in the 21-runner meet.  

  • I might worry too much

    I wanted to write about the golf weekend at Perry Park, but I learned that just as with Las Vegas, what happens at Perry Park stays at Perry Park.  
    Let me just say that I was disappointed in how visitors to the three golf courses take care of the course.  
    It concerns me that Americans have gotten so lazy that they cannot pick up after themselves, but I guess looking at the sides of the road in Harrison County I should not be surprised.
