    The Harrison County Fillies traveled to Montgomery County Wednesday and came home with a 4-2 win over the 2-2-2 Lady Indians.  
    The match, the most physical to date for the Fillies, saw the home team jump out to a 1-0 lead in the third minute of the first half on a diagonal ball score.
    “It has been the slow start that has been our Achilles heel so far this season,” noted Coach Kevin Gaunce. “We have given up early goals in the last three games.”

    A very good crowd came to the Hilltop Friday evening, but went away disappointed as the Breds dropped a 42-6 game to the Montgomery County Indians.
    The inability to stop the run, interceptions, and a couple of dropped passes turned what could have been an exciting close game into a lopsided win for the visiting Indians.

  • A most heinous act

    It wasn’t uncommon when I was a youngster for my mother to exclaim in angst, “What is this world coming to?!”
    This could come after reading the paper, watching the news, or just after one of my brothers would do something that was unusually stupid. This exclamation is perfect though for what happened in Texas last week in a high school football game.
