Today's Sports

  • Great respect for Joe Paterno

    I saw a note on Facebook today that made me think about the legacy of Joe Paterno. Paterno, for anyone who has maybe been out of the country (world) in the past few months, was the football coach at Penn State since the ball was leather and not a pig’s bladder.  
    Two months ago, Paterno was removed as coach by the State College Pennsylvania institution people in charge because of what was perceived as inaction in light of an ugly sex abuse charge against one of his former assistants.  

  • Sports beat

    Colts advance to semis with
    rout of Royal Springs
    The quarter final round of the Bluegrass Conference Tournament was a game the Titans of Royal Springs will not want to remember.
    The 19-2 Harrison County Colts scored the first eight points en route to a 56-25 win over Royal Springs. Floor leader Brock Jenkins scored the first six points in the quarter, which was all Harrison County. In fact, the visitors scored only one field goal in the first half as Harrison County led 25-6 at the end of the second quarter.

  • Fillies battle Lady Indians,...

    The most overused cliché in sports is “the game was closer than the score indicated.”
    The Fillies game at Montgomery County Friday night was actually closer than the score indicated as the regional favorite Lady Indians defeated the Fillies 74-60 in a game that was close until the last few minutes.  
    The Fillies were hampered in the second half by an injury to senior guard Emalee Little late in the second quarter sending the veteran guard to the hospital for X-rays.  

  • Breds take three from Bourbon on...

    After the initial confusion of the triangle-and-three and the box-and-one defense, the Harrison County Thorobreds pulled away from the Bourbon County Colonels in the second half for a 70-60 win Friday night.  
    Bourbon County began the game with the hand-in-the-face defense on senior Caleb Ford and sophomore Dillon Pulliam and it caused the Harrison County offense to sputter at the beginning of the game.  

  • Breds rout Lewis County 67-43

    After only leading the 3-15 Lewis County Lions by eight points at the half the Harrison County Thorobreds outscored the youthful Leos by 30-5 in the third period in route to a 67-43 win at George Rogers Clark Saturday. The game was the third of four played that day as the schools involved participated in the Central Bank MLK Cardinal Classic at the Winchester school.  Highlands defeated South Laurel 59-48 in the opener, powerhouse Madison Central whipped Fleming County 88-70 and the host Cardinals dried up the Green Wave of Meade County 71-46 in the other contests.  

  • Has religion become a crime?

    Let me begin by saying that I am not a fan of the Broncos or a particular fan of Tim Tebow so don’t take this as a fan’s musings. In fact, since the Broncos beat the Steelers I may be the opposite of a Denver fan so these remarks are straight from the head not the heart.

  • HCMS Colts take three of four...

  • Fillies lead in first half but...

    At Covington Holmes on Wednesday and at home against Fleming County the Harrison County Fillies had a lead in the first half but couldn’t hold on and lost each time.
    Wednesday, the extremely athletic Lady Bulldogs took advantage of 26 Fillies’ turnovers to win, 59-46. The Fillies and Lady Dogs were tied at 14 at the end of the first period  as the two teams traded baskets and turnovers.
