    Two Harrison County players were dismissed with red cards which made them unable to play for the remainder of Thursday’s match and the next match which was Tuesday at home with Frankfort.

    It is still very early in the soccer season but Harrison County’s Fillies got a glimpse of where they are with one of the better teams in the 10th Region Wednesday when they faced Bishop Brossart.
    The Lady Mustangs arrived on the Hilltop with a 2-2 record playing in the tough northern Kentucky area.  
    Bishop Brossart wasted little time as they scored the go-ahead goal with only three minutes played to take a 1-0 lead.

  • Some football season thoughts

    Finally, football is here with college ball beginning last weekend for some smaller schools and the big guns beginning this week.  
    The smaller school games are just as important to them as the big school games are to the big schools. However, the big media people are focused on the big schools.  
    High school has also started and while the Breds have dropped the first two games, there is much improvement and spirits are still high on the Hilltop.

    The Harrison County Fillies traveled northward Wednesday to Scott High and came home with a hard-fought 2-nil win over the Lady Eagles.  
    The night was delayed only slightly by lightning.  
    The varsity game basically started on time without the junior varsity game being played due to the weather.  
    The varsity started play in the rain and the Fillies struggled at first to adjust to the speed the ball travels on the turf fields.
