  • Fillies soccer ties undefeated...

    Wednesday night the stars must have been in line for the Walton Verona Lady Bearcats as they dodged the bullet and remained undefeated by forcing a tie with the Harrison County Fillies 1-1. 

    The Fillies out-shot the home team by a 12-9 margin and many of the shots missed were point blank opportunities that just missed. 

  • Fillies win Dink Scott...

    “We are really starting to come around,” a pleased Fillies’ Volleyball Coach Bill Faulkner said after the Fillies swept past Madison Southern 2-0 (25-16, 25-11) Tuesday night. “We are learning our roles and starting to have some fun with everyone contributing.” 

    The Fillies, fresh from winning the six-game Dink Scott Memorial Tournament in Mt. Sterling on Saturday, handled the Lady Eagles (8-9) without much difficulty.

  • Thorobreds tie Franklin, Rowan...

    Soccer is a much more physical game than anyone realizes until a game or two are watched.

    The Harrison County versus Franklin County match at LeBus Field last Thursday night certainly proved this. 

    Yet, as physical and almost out of control as it appeared, only one card was issued and that was a red card to Breds’ fullback junior Anthony Shirley. This was in the second half with 26-plus minutes left in the contest and put the home squad at a decided disadvantage.

    Middle school cross country

    does well in Frankfort meet

    The Harrison County Middle School Cross Country teams each finished fourth of nine teams in the Frankfort All Comers race last Wednesday. 

    The 1500M course is one that the teams had competed on earlier in the year and nearly every member bettered the time that they had run before on Wednesday.

    Each race, both the girls’ and boys’, had more than 100 participants. In the girls’ race Harrison County’s Amelia Bolin finished first with an excellent time of 6:15.8. 

  • 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.
