  • Thorobreds use solid second half...

    BThe game was billed as a battle of the superior team versus the best guard in the area.  
    The best guard had a lot of trouble showing his stuff but the superior team used good guard play of their own to rally from a halftime deficit to win the game.  
    The Augusta Panthers brought a sparkling 12-4 record onto the Hilltop Friday and, instead of being a one man show, played good team ball as they battled the Harrison County Thorobreds to a close 63-60 win for the home standing Breds.  

  • Doing the same thing over and...

    I think that the definition of insanity is repeating an action and expecting a different result or something to that effect.  
    This is not a political statement at all but one relating to sports.  
    For instance, how many batters who reach base by walking end up scoring a run?  
    It doesn’t happen every time but often enough that it might qualify as insanity.  
    It is more than likely ineptitude since the pitcher doesn’t usually walk someone on purpose.  

  • Illness, Lady Panthers defeat...

    Fleming County’s Lady Panthers were having an okay year as, after losing all five starters to graduation from last year, they had a 6-8 record so far in 2012-13.  
    They improved to 7-8 Saturday night when they were the beneficiaries of some Harrison County Fillies’ misfortune.
    The evening started out on a bad note when the Harrison County bus rolled into Flemingsburg at 4 p.m. for a scheduled triple header with the freshmen, junior varsity and varsity.  
    The gym was dark and no one was in sight.

    Five HCMS wrestlers qualify for regional
    Eighth grader Michael Mattox led four other Harrison County Middle School wrestlers into the region competition by taking first place in the middle school District 7 tournament Saturday.  
    Mattox took first in the 106 lb competition taking advantage of his varsity experience to bring home the first place medal.

  • Breds ease past Cardinals on a...

    George Rogers Clark owned an eight-game winning streak over the Harrison County Thorobreds until Tuesday night on the Hilltop.  
    If someone would have said that the Breds were going to hit 50 percent from the foul line, 30 percent from the three point arc and 36 percent from the field and win by 11, hardly anyone would have believed it.  
    That is just what happened Tuesday as the Breds, after a determined if not artistic start, bested the Cardinals in a game where the lid that was on the basket was rarely removed.   

  • Fillies win second on Saturday,...

    Coach Kim Furnish summed up the weekend with one comment on Saturday night.  
    “After the first quarter, we finally went out and took care of business,” the second-year Fillies mentor said.
    This could have applied to the first 13 games of the year as the Fillies looked like they learned how to put a team away Saturday night after a season-to-date of leading and losing the lead.  
    Thursday night the Fillies played the 10-2 Lady Bears to a tough 53-46 loss after trailing by only one point going into the final eight minute stanza.
