    The Harrison County Fillies got some big help off the bench in the second quarter and second half to blow by the Lady Panthers of Augusta, 63-37, Thursday in Augusta.  The Fillies led at the end of each period and never trailed after the first basket of the game.
    Augusta senior guard, Samantha Kennard, made a jump shot to open the scoring but Harrison County scored the next 10 points to take a commanding lead.

    The Harrison County Archery team traveled to Edith B. Hayes Middle School in Lexington Saturday afternoon for the second annual tournament held at the school.  
    The Westside and Southside Elementary Schools combined for a team and one archer shot for Northside.  
    The Southside team won the competition over three other schools shooting a combined score of 2,731.  

  • Bengals need to move some people...

    Saturday night’s dismal performance for the Bengals should make one thing perfectly clear for the Bengals’ hierarchy. There has to be some changes.  
    I have read several Bengal fans’ take on the penalties on the Bengals and the lack of “equal justice” levied against the Steelers for some similar actions as the fans see it.  
    As a former official, let me assure you that what one sees on television and even on replay does not compare to actually being on the field and seeing and hearing what is going on.

    Wrestlers are undermanned at Fairfield; Coy finishes third
    Coach Luke Tucker expected some tough competition when the Thorobreds traveled to Fairfield, Ohio, for the Fairfield Duals.  
    He didn’t know just how tough it was going to be though since on Saturday only eight wrestlers were able to compete. Sickness struck down two of the top performers in Nathan Lopez and Michael Mattox and various other reasons kept most of the team from competing.

    The Harrison County Fillies improved to 6-10 on the season with two wins to start 2016 off right.  
    On Saturday afternoon in Vanceburg, the Fillies overcame some ice-cold field goal shooting in the first half to rally to a 41-34 win over the Lady Lions of Lewis County.  
    In the first half, the Fillies managed only seven points as they made only three of 29 tries from the field.

    The Simon Kenton Pioneers improved their season record to 8-5 Tuesday night with a 75-64 win over Harrison County in Independence.   Harrison County fell to an even 7-7 with the loss.
    The Thorobreds came out cold from the field as they tried to force the ball inside against the much-taller Pioneers. This led to three-for-12 shooting and six turnovers in the first quarter. The Breds fell behind 21-8 after the first period.  

  • Will this be a Cinderella Super...

    Now that the NFL has the playoffs set, the question remains as to what team is getting hot at the right time and which teams have played their best football already.  
    I believe I will try to answer that question this week while addressing the Cinderella issue.
    First, Cinderella is none other than the hero of the compound on HWY 62W, one Peyton Manning.  
    Many football fans and some of the “experts” thought that Manning had played his last game after an injury sidelined him seven weeks ago.
