    Tuesday night at Scott High was the latest in offensive frustration for the Harrison County Thorobreds as they fell to the Scott High Eagles, 54-50.  
    The Thorobreds were coming off a similar outing Saturday when they lost to Louisville Western, 56-52, in the Corky Cox Classic at LaRue County.  
    On Tuesday night, the Thorobreds were facing a 1-1 Eagles squad, which had lost their top seven players from last year’s 19-10 team.  

  • Fillies drop heartbreaker to...

    Asia Sims banked in a running 10-footer as the horn sounded Monday night to propel the Lady Colonels of Bourbon County to a 44-43 win over the Harrison County Fillies in Cynthiana.  
    The Fillies had regained the lead with seven seconds left on junior Morgan Florence’s six-footer from the baseline following a Harrison County timeout in what was a set up play. Sims then raced unimpeded down the floor for the winning basket.

  • Breds finish fifth in ‘Rumble on...

    “I thought we wrestled well, but I am not happy with the results,” said first-year head coach Luke Tucker. “We will have to continue to practice hard in order to improve.”  
    Tucker’s youthful grapplers took one championship and three runners up in the eight-team meet, which was won by Scott High of Covington.  
    Senior Eric Kiskaden was the lone winner for the Breds as he rolled through the 195 lb class to win the title.  

  • Bluegrass Conference play...

    The Harrison County Middle School eighth grade basketball team remained undefeated in Bluegrass Conference play as they won games with McNabb Middle School and Powell County.  
    Coach Jamie Cases’ stalwarts started slowly on Thursday but poured on the coal in the second half to handily defeat McNabb 53-33.  
    Jovon Williams hit for 16 points to lead the Colts while Zach Pulliam was also in double figures with 12 points.

    The high school football season is over now with state champions crowned in all six classes last weekend in Bowling Green.  
    I was right on five of six, missing the Hazard win over Mayfield in Class A. Three of Harrison County’s opponents from last season were in the finals with only Highlands winning a championship.

    Senior Cody Chambers couldn’t miss Tuesday night as his 23-point effort led the Simon Kenton Pioneers to a tight 63-61 win over the Harrison County Thorobreds in Independence.  
    Despite the fact that the Breds shifted the defense to Chambers’ side of the floor he still made contested shots that led to a 40-32 halftime advantage for the home team.
    The second half saw the Breds switch to a match up zone playing much tougher defense causing the Pioneers to become very deliberate taking only close-in shots.
