  • Cards fly past Breds, 75-52

    The visiting Clark County Cardinals blew open a close game in the third quarter and cruised past the Harrison County Thorobreds on Tuesday night, 75-52.

    Harrison County, currently ranked seventh in the 10th Region, jumped on the region’s top-ranked team in the first three minutes of the game, but struggled to stay within striking distance for the rest of the first half.

    The Thorobreds led 9-3 in the early going, but needed a Ryan Puckett three-pointer inside the last minute of the first period to trail 15-14 at the quarter break.

  • Second half dooms Fillies in...

    Down 14-4 at one point in the first quarter, Harrison County fought back and led host Tates Creek at halftime on Monday night, 26-25. To start the second half, the Fillies were awarded two free throws after it was discovered that a Tates Creek player was not in the official score book.

    Charley Hatfield made one of those charity tosses to give Harrison County a 27-25 lead.

  • Breds roll as Reitz notches...

    Don’t look now, but the Harrison County Thorobreds may be raising a few eyebrows within the 10th Region.

    On Tuesday night, the Breds returned to the Hilltop for their second home game of the season and didn’t disappoint the crowd with an 82-59 rout of visiting Augusta.

    Balanced scoring, solid outside shooting and improved rebounding by the home team proved to be too much for the Panthers to handle. It was the second time within a two-week period that Harrison County has upended Augusta.
