    Soccer teams travel to LCA for girl/boy doubleheader

    The 10th rated Lexington Christian girls’ soccer team got past the Harrison County Fillies Tuesday night in the opening game of the girl/boy doubleheader at Lexington Christian. 

    The Lady Eagles (12-3-1) outscored the Fillies 3-0 despite a good defensive effort by the visiting team. The Senior Night festivities had the home girls focused on the task at hand and Harrison County just could not keep them out of the goal. 

  • Fillies finish home schedule...

    The Harrison County Fillies Volleyball team ended the regular season home schedule Tuesday night with a two set romp over neighboring Bourbon County. 

    The Fillies won 25-17 and 25-11 as they passed the ball very well during the contest. 

    “Our passing was better tonight so Allison (Cordray, the setter) could set up our hitters better,” noted Coach Bill Faulkner.  “Deidre and Madeline had some excellent slams tonight due to better sets. Overall, we reacted to the serve better.”

  • Tigers rip Thorobreds Saturday...

    Homecoming 2010 was first made uncomfortable by the rain, though the community needs the rain. The Bardstown Tigers absolutely spoiled the night as they ran rough shod over the Harrison County Thorobreds dominating every facet of the game. 

    The Thorobreds, playing without their three fastest players who were out with injuries, could never catch up to the fleet footed Tigers. 

    “We were not very good,” lamented Breds’ Coach Mark Carroll. “The same issues we had last week came back tonight and hurt us again.”

  • Slucher scores four times in 50-...

    Junior running back Nick Slucher scored the only points in the first half on a one-yard run with two seconds to play.  It was difficult to foresee that the Thorobreds would put 43 points on the board in the second half by the first half play, but that is just what happened. 

    Three of the second half touchdowns were on runs of four, one and 13 yards by Slucher has he was the work horse for the Thorobreds’ offense Friday. 

    He carried the ball for 142 yards on 19 carries and did not see any action in the fourth quarter. 

  • Harrison cross country runs well...

    “It was a great day for our runners and I was happy for them,” said Coach Danny Simpson after the Capitol View Classic Saturday in Frankfort. 

    The race, which was run at The Archives on a hilly, rugged course, featured many of the better teams from central Kentucky. It was also the rare event where all of the participants were awarded a medal for the hard work that they put in during the day. Both the boys’ and girls’ varsity teams finished fourth in the team standings in this event. 

  • Breds take Soccer Senior Night...

    Senior Johnson Garrison scored the first two goals of the game, the first with only nine minutes gone and the second three minutes later, to lead the Harrison County Soccer Thorobreds to a 6-0 Senior Night thumping of the Frankfort Panthers.

    Coach Nick Hill substituted liberally as the Panthers were not in the same caliber as the Thorobreds on this Thursday night. 

    After Garrison’s goals, it took the Breds nine more minutes to score when freshman Grant Carr took an assist from senior D.A. Wiglesworth and drove the ball into the net for a 3-0 lead.

    Volleyball falls to Highlands at Ft. Thomas, prepare for district

    The Harrison County Fillies volleyball team traveled north to Ft. Thomas Thursday and dropped a two-set match to the Lady Bluebirds of Highlands. 

    The Fillies battled the 17-17 home team and had the lead several times in each match, but dropped the matches by 19-25 and 14-25 scores. The Fillies finished the regular season with a 22-10 record and are the number one seed in the district. 

  • Soccer Fillies win streak five,...

    Soccer is often low scoring, but in Paris and Grant County’s case, if you don’t score at all it is hard to win. 

    This is what the Lady Hounds and the Lady Braves discovered when they faced Tiffany Snider and the Harrison County Fillies’ defense. Last Wednesday night, the Lady Hounds visited LeBus Field and fell by a 1-0 score. 

  • Breds improve record with two...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds improved their season soccer mark to 10-3-2 with shutouts of Paris on Thursday and Sayre, Saturday morning. 

    Both of the games were played at LeBus Field, but the play and intensity was different in each game. 

    Paris came into the contest with a 3-10 record and didn’t figure to be much of a challenge. 

    That prediction had Coach Nick Hill using this game to try to work out some kinks in the Breds’ game.
