  • Fillies notch second win, down...

    Winning cures a lot of ills, and the Harrison County Fillies soccer team appears to be on the road to recovery.

    On Monday night at LeBus Field, the Fillies blew open a close game, scoring four times in the second half and totally dominating the action as they crushed Grant County 5-0.

  • High school sports report

    The Harrison County volleyball team overcame a slow start and came back to defeat visiting Powell County in two straight games, 25-23 and 25-12.

    The Fillies had a hard time getting the first side-out as Powell County served its way to a 7-0 lead, prompting a time-out by Harrison County coach Bill Faulkner.

  • Williams rushes past Breds

    Clark County running back Ryan Williams stole the show on Friday night as the visiting Cardinals rained on Harrison Countys home opener, blasting the Breds 44-0.

    Williams wasted no time in exerting his influence on the game by taking the handoff on the Cards first play from scrimmage and out-racing the entire Harrison County defense for a 90-yard TD run.

    A much-needed rain started falling about 45 minutes prior to the 7:30 kick-off ... much-needed by the community, but not by Harrison County head coach Aaron Stepp.

  • Breds take on Panthers Saturday

    The task of first-year Harrison County football coach Aaron Stepp gets a little tougher this week as his beaten and battered team takes to the field for the first time against a much-improved Fleming County Panther squad in the first game of the Recreation Bowl on Saturday in Mt. Sterling.

    Last year, these same two teams squared off in the Recreation Bowl, with Harrison County coming away with an easy 53-8 win.

    This year, look for a much different score.

  • Football not as fast-paced as it...

    Heres another example of you-cant-always-believe-what-you-see.

    On Tuesday night before the Breds soccer game with Grant County, I had a nice long visit with one of the referees for the contest, Alan Southerland.

    After seeking Alan out to pay him for his services that evening and introducing myself to him, it took about a nanosecond to realize that he was originally from somewhere other than Central Kentucky.

  • Fall sports update at HCHS

    The Harrison County High School volleyball team got back to its winning ways on Tuesday night hosting Madison Southern and coming away with an easy win 25-14 and 25-15.

    The freshman Fillies and JV Fillies also bested the Lady Eagles in their two preliminary contests.

    We played much better and are showing signs of improvement, said HCHS coach Bill Faulkner. We have a young team this year and will have our ups and downs, but are gaining valuable experience.

  • Breds take 2-1 loss against...

    In boys soccer, the Breds lost a heartbreaker to district rival Pendleton County on Tuesday night, 2-1. The host Wildcats scored first, but Harrison County answered with a goal by Jake Jenkins at the 15 minute mark of the second half to knot the score at 1-1.

    Bobby (Feeback) played a nice through ball to Jake who outran a defender to the ball and scored, is how Harrison County coach Nick Hill explained the Breds lone goal.

  • Bad week for HCHS sports

    As far as wins and losses go, it hasnt been the best week for Harrison County High School sports teams.

    However, tough competition and close games should payoff for the Thorobreds and Fillies as their respective seasons progress.

    On Monday night, the Harrison County Fillies ran into a buzz saw and were defeated by a strong Lexington Christian Academy team 4-0 in Lexington.

    The 14th ranked Eagles scored three first-half goals to take control of the game, but Harrison County coach Kim Jenkins was anything but disappointed with the efforts of her team.
