  • When the situation is difficult...

    There are often times situations that are very difficult without any solutions that are clear cut and apparent.  
    Harrison County’s football program is facing such a situation this Friday night when they are to play host to the Highlands Bluebirds.  
    The Bluebirds are probably the second best team in Kentucky, no matter the class, only behind Trinity, who ranks in the top 10 nationally.

  • Soccer Breds split big rivalry...

    Thursday night the Thorobreds traveled to Georgetown to face Scott County in a big match against the 9-2 Cardinals.  
    The seniors on the Harrison County team had not beaten Scott County while they were in high school so a win was a high priority.
    The game started poorly as, although the Breds were playing well, the ball fell right at a Scott County player’s feet after a misdirected clearance and the Cardinals were on the board 1-nil early.  

  • Fillies soccer wins, loses,...

    The Harrison County Fillies soccer team traveled to Winchester and won a big region game last Wednesday as they edged the Lady Cards of George Rogers Clark 3-2.  
    Juniors Haley Carr and Taylor Fry each scored a goal and freshman Amber Smith also added one as the Fillies played what Coach Kim Jenkins thought may have been the best effort of the season.  

  • Volleyball plays six matches in...

    The Harrison County Fillies volleyball team played six road games since last Thursday as the schedule is really busy heading toward district tournament time.  
    The Fillies began on Thursday at Pendleton County where they dropped three straight sets to the district rival Lady Cats.  
    The matches were closely contested with the final scores of 25-17, 25-13 and 25-17.  Pendleton County improved to 11-5 with the win.

  • When we were kids we called this...

    After Saturday’s football game with Western Kentucky we will begin to see what we called as kids a pig pile.  
    A pig pile for those of you who were either never a kid or just haven’t heard the term is when one person gets down and the rest pile on top of him.  
    The person on the bottom is the pig and the rest the ones who pile on.  
    After the Western Kentucky loss, University of Kentucky coach Joker Phillips will play the pig and the media will be the people who pile on him.

  • Breds take a step back, lose to...

    “While there were some things we improved on, we took a step back overall tonight,” said Coach Jim Carr after the Bourbon County loss.  “We were not as aggressive as we needed to be and Bourbon County took advantage of that fact.”
    Friday’s football game started out on a strange note with the Colonels seemingly kicking an onside kick to send a message that this was going to be a hard hitting, tough game.  

  • Sports beat

    Golf team has three dual meets,
    loses all three
    The Harrison County Thorobreds golf team traveled to the Pendleton County Country Club last Wednesday to do battle with the Wildcats of Pendleton County. Eighth grader Jake Jones’ 45 led the Thorobreds as they went down to defeat by a wide 158 to 244 for the nine-hole contest.  
    Accuracy was at a premium on this day for Harrison County as the boys couldn’t seem to make the easy putts or straight, long drives to challenge the good Pendleton County team.

  • Soccer Breds rebound to beat...

    “What a turnaround, compared to the Sayre performance,” exclaimed Coach Nick Hill. “We had a great intensity tonight; you could see it in their eyes.”  
    That was Coach Hill’s first statement after the Thursday night 6-nil destruction of the Grant County Braves at the Athletic Complex.  
    The first score came with only 29 seconds played as after the Braves had the opening possession, the Breds quickly took the ball away and 13 to 14 passes later, the ball was in the net.
