  • What is wrong with this picture?

    Sunday in another disappointing outing for Bengal fans; the Bengals lost again to the Patriots. 

    The loss wasn’t an upset particularly, but the way the game was played should have been upsetting to Bengal hierarchy, Marvin Lewis and the Bengal nation. 

    The team, though expressing supreme confidence that it would win, put about as poor of an effort forth in the game, especially in the first half, that I have seen for a while by players not in Ram outfits.

  • Breds rush past Newport in Hall...

    Harrison County rushed for 295 yards Friday night at the Athletic Complex as they held off Newport’s Wildcats, 21-14, in the first home game of the season. 

    The Wildcats (1-2) ran for 309 for the game but were held to only 77 in the second half as the Breds’ defense stiffened. 

    It was a contrast in styles as Newport went for the big play and had a couple while the Thorobreds worked on controlling the tempo and thus the game.

  • Thorobreds rout Paris 46-6 with...

    The Harrison County football Thorobreds ran rough shod over the youthful Paris Greyhounds Friday night in Paris by a 46-6 margin. 

    The game was never close as the home-standing Hounds took the opening kickoff and, after not picking up the first down on a fourth down running play deep in their own territory, turned the ball over to the Breds. 

    On the first play from scrimmage, quarterback Joe Korona ran the ball 17 yards for the first score of the game and the Breds were on the way to victory. 

  • Hold your horses fans,...

    Listening to the announcers last night (Monday) during the rousing Boise State last touchdown drive, one would have thought that it was January 2011 and the national championship was being decided. 

    Sure the Broncos traveled across the country to play Virginia Tech on a neutral field in Landover, Md., and came away with a victory, but there are many things to consider. 

    First, as I said, this is September and no national champs in football are crowned in September.

  • Fillies soccer continues rough...

    After losing to Franklin County Thursday, 2-0, Harrison County Fillies Coach Kim Jenkins decided to try a new formation to generate more offense. 

    The Fillies were tied with the Flyers at the half nil-nil, but just could not score and Franklin County came away with the victory. 

    The Fillies then traveled to Bowling Green to play in the Purples Classic on Friday and played three games in 24 hours. The first opponent was the Lady Trojans of North Hardin, which came into the match with a 2-5 record, but defeated the Fillies 0-2.

  • Fillies fall to LCA Thursday,...

    The Harrison County Volleyball team keeps coming close, but was unable in the last two matches to pull out a win. 

    On Thursday, the Lexington Christian Lady Eagles visited the Hilltop and saw the Fillies take a hard-fought first set 27-25 to take a 1-0 lead in match play. However, the visiting Eagles came back for a 20-25 win in the second set to force the third. 

  • Shuttle service to be provided...

    A shuttle service will be available for the Harrison County – Newport Varsity Football game on Sept. 10, at the new Harrison County Athletic Complex.

    A shuttle bus will be located at the drive between Ingles Stadium and the Harrison County High School Student Parking lot. Shuttle service will begin at 6:30 p.m. The shuttle will leave every 15 minutes taking patrons to the Athletic Complex. The final bus prior to game time is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.

    Junior varsity and freshman football


    handle Grant County


    In a rare Saturday morning game, the Harrison County freshman footballers defeated Grant County’s rookie Braves by a 16-6 margin at Ingles Field.  


    A pair of touchdown runs by DeShon Talbott and an extra point run by quarterback Zach Royce put the points on the board for Harrison County, which had a shutout until less than a minute left in the game when an ill-advised pass was picked off and ran back 60 yards by the Braves for their only points.  

  • Thorobreds ready to even their...

    Coach Mark Carroll will lead his football Thorobreds south about 13 miles Friday night to do battle with the 0-2 Paris Greyhounds seeking the Breds’ first victory of the young season. 

    Paris has been defeated by a total of 117-12 by Kentucky Country Day and Frankfort High in their first two outings, but Carroll is not over confident. 

    “As silly as this might sound,” the second year coach said, “they have just missed a lot of tackles, which has led to allowing all of those points. They have good speed and some talented players.”

  • Volleyball team beats Fleming...

    The Harrison County volleyball teams have been busy this past week, especially the non-varsity teams. 

    Last Thursday, all three Fillies squads played at Fleming County. The varsity won 2-0 (25-10, 25-10) to improve its record to 3-2 while Fleming County fell to 1-4 for the season. 

    In this contest, the Fillies were very aggressive scoring kills on 21 of their 42 attempts. 

    The Harrison County junior varsity improved to 3-2 as well as they also defeated Fleming County 2-0 (21-14, 21-13).
