  • Fillies drop three of four games...

    The Somerset Lady Jumpers were said to be among the top teams in the 12th Region. The Harrison County Fillies were entering the Bourbon County tourney coming off a good showing in Prestonsburg. 

    This was the opening game for both teams in the tournament Saturday at 4 p.m. and looked to be a tight match.  It was hardly a game at all. 

    Somerset jumped out to a 12-0 lead and was really never threatened as they won by a 73-46 margin. 

  • Breds lose overtime battle in...

    “We did not deserve to win, we shot poorly. We looked tired, our guards looked tired,” lamented Coach Mike Reitz after his team fell to Webster County 41-39 in overtime Tuesday night. 

    This was the second game in as many nights for the Harrison County Thorobreds as they played in the National Guard Classic at LaRue County High School.

    Poor shooting was the problem, which was due to poor shot selection, for the most part. 

    Webster County has a good defensive team aided by its ability to play nine players without missing a beat.

  • Wrestling team wins 5, loses 6...

    In the Region 7 Super Duals, Harrison County had some outstanding individual efforts and results, but over all injuries and Murphy’s Law led to a not so pleasing team total. 

    In the 12-team duals hosted by Montgomery County, the Thorobreds were matched in two days against 10 of the 11 opponents. 

    Harrison County started with a good match against the host Indians as they defeated Montgomery County by a 57-27 score. This match had to be on or before Dec. 16.

    Fillies runners up at Prestonsburg tourney

    The Harrison County Fillies played hard against Pulaski County last Wednesday, but came up on the short end of the 76-66 score. The Lady Maroons won the championship of the Prestonsburg Invitational Tourney with a 25 point fourth quarter against the exhausted Fillies.  

    The Fillies were playing their third game in two days as was Pulaski County and just simply ran out of gas in the last half. 

  • More than an undefeated season

    Indianapolis, despite being in Indiana, is not my favorite team in the NFL. The Colts are probably my second favorite team next to The Steelers, but I do like some others. 

    If I really do not like a team it is usually due to some player or coach who is on that team. 

    The Patriots, Jets and whoever Terrell Owens is playing for are teams that I cannot be for. 

    The dislike of the first two teams is because of the coaches whom I think are either over rated, a jerk or both.

  • Fillies fight for championship...

    In the weather-delayed tournament in Prestonsburg, it may be cold outside but it hasn’t affected the Harrison County Fillies. 

    The Fillies opened the tournament on Tuesday morning with a start-to-finish win over the Jenkins High School Lady Cavaliers 66-50. 

    The Fillies’ defense was the key to the victory as they forced 25 turnovers and had 16 steals for the game.

    The Fillies had a great team effort with senior Kaitlin Johnson leading the scoring with 14 points, including four threes.

    Freshmen sweep

    Pendleton County

    The Harrison County Filly and Thorobred freshmen squads posted a doubleheader sweep of Pendleton County Wednesday Dec. 16. The first-year girls’ squad led or was tied at all stops, but was never comfortably ahead. 

  • Thorobreds play three at Bracken...

    Sunday evening play opened the Bracken County Tournament for the Harrison County Thorobreds. 

    The Breds faced the Juggernauts of Erlanger Lloyd High School of the 9th region pulling away to a 60-51 win.

    Lloyd came into the game sporting a 1-3 record while the Breds began at 3-2 for the young season.

  • Basketball: The greatest show on...

    The high school basketball season is into the tournament time, which is one of my favorite times of the year. 

    On a good day and night, a fan can go to one location and watch from four to eight games without leaving the gym. That may sound like a miserable day to some, but that’s what I call hog heaven. 

    High school games still have the biggest percentage of fans that really care about their team winning, I believe.

  • Breds face district foes and an...

    The weekend and Tuesday brought the Harrison County Thorobreds face to face with some of their hottest rivalries. Nicholas County on Friday, Deming on Tuesday and the Paris Greyhounds in the middle made for some intense basketball.

    Friday night the Blue Jackets rolled into Cynthiana with two transfers and some veteran players to see how they matched up with the home standing Breds. They matched up nicely. 

    The game went into triple overtime before the visitors pulled away for an 83-78 win.
