  • Football protests; what do they...

    I have read over the past several weeks many opinion articles written about the various protests conducted and orchestrated by football players and yes, unfortunately, football teams.  Not one of these articles have said what I think about the problem and what it will ultimately cause in our country.

    The ball bounces for 40 minutes in a soccer match and sometimes the bounces are not good fortune for the home team.  That was the case Monday night as the 12th-rated Lady Cards of George Rogers Clark did battle with the Fillies soccer team.

    It was the same story, just a different Friday for the Harrison County football team as it faced the Scott High Eagles in Taylor Mill.  
    Harrison County had a couple of early first downs but then offensive ineptness for the remainder of the game in another continuous clock defeat in Seventh District play was the way the rest of the game played out.

    The Thorobreds traveled to Maysville, Thursday, to match up with the Saints of St. Patrick.  The game, which was played with only two officials, had some calls which were questioned by both teams, likely due to the absence of one official.  
    The Breds got on the board first when Jacob Walker threw the ball into the middle and Cameron Kinsey scored a beautiful goal with a header.

    The Harrison County Fillies volleyball team pushed its undefeated record to 27-0 with a road win at Bishop Brossart Tuesday night.  The Fillies bested Fleming County, last Thursday, in straight sets on the Hilltop, before traveling north on Tuesday.
    Tuesday started with the Harrison County junior varsity winning in straight sets.  The junior varsity team, who has rebounded from a mid-season slump, took the Mustangs 21-12, 21-8.

    The Harrison County volleyball Fillies lost their first set of the season Wednesday night in the match at Campbell County (10-10).  The Fillies rallied after dropping the first set 13-25 to take the second 25-18 to force the third and final set.  And what a set it was!  
    Both teams put it all on the line with the Fillies coming out on top 33-31 to win their 24th straight match.

    Lucas Sullivan qualifies for state
    tournament, Breds golfers finish 8th
    Senior Lucas Sullivan shot a nine over 81 to finish third overall in the Region 8 Golf Tournament played Monday at Houston Oaks.  Sullivan’s effort qualifies him for the KHSAA State Golf Tournament which will be played Tuesday, October 3rd in Bowling Green on the Bowling Green Country Club course.  
    “Had Lucas not had a really bad first hole, he could have won the tournament,” saidHCHS golf coach Jason Crisp.

  • What is important in sports?

    If the Cynthiana Democrat was written like sports and news are talked about these days, Lee would write the sports without going to a game and I would do the On the Record without looking at the court information.  
    We both would have an opinion but would have no basis for writing the story.  So rather than comment on who sat down, who stood up and who stayed in the locker room, I am skipping it altogether as the President should.
