    The friendly confines of the Athletic Complex were not so friendly Monday night for the Harrison County Fillies soccer team.  
    Though the Fillies had some great ball movement and possessed the ball for most of the time in the first half, Anderson County led 2-1 at the half.  
    The Lady Bearcats struck first with just under five minutes of play when senior Evan Kays got behind the net and scored a one-on-one goal for the early lead for the visitors.

    This was an omen of things to come for the Fillies as the varsity, behind 20 assists from Emma Gooden, also won in straight sets 25-15, 25-17.

    Not much went right for the youthful Harrison County Thorobreds Saturday night in Harrodsburg as they faced 5A power Mercer County in the second game of the Ft. Harrod Bowl.  
    Boyle County rolled past John Hardin 41-6 in the first contest.
    The Breds got a break on the first possession for the Titans as Mercer County marched down the field on a 12-play drive that took just four minutes only to have a touchdown called back by a penalty.

    Tuesday night on the Hilltop, the Harrison County soccer Thorobreds improved to 2-1 on the season with a 5-3 win over the Sayre Spartans (0-2-1).  
    This was the best game the Breds have played in the young season as they moved the ball around and worked together well the entire match.  
    Sayre scored the first two goals of the night. They scored on a penalty kick at the 25:58 mark in the first half and again with 15:41 remaining in the half.

    Bluegrass Storm emerged victorious in last weekend’s Dog Days of Summer 10U Softball Tournament in Paris.  
    Storm had been runners-up three times in the past year as championships had eluded them until Sunday.  Storm breezed through this tournament out-scoring their opponents by a combined 49-7.

    The dreaded pregame protests happened again Sunday but for a totally different reason in my opinion. Note, “in my opinion,” which we each are entitled to have.  
    Rights are also something we each are entitled to have but there are disagreements on what is a right and what is a privilege which has nothing to do with this article or at least too much to do with it.
