  • When is gamesmanship cheating

    The letter of the law is rarely followed these days, which is the way that it has been in sports forever. But when does outsmarting the opponent while on the edge, or over the edge, of rule breaking become cheating and not simply gamesmanship?
    Many parts of sports are taught to be skirting the rules yet are accepted as “just the way it is done.”  
    An example would be teaching a blocker in football to hold in a slick manner so as not to be seen by the officials, rather than block the legal way.

    For the second night in a row the Harrison County Fillies dominated play on the field but unlike the Bishop Brossart match they could not get the ball into the net enough to win.  
    The Bryan Station Lady Defenders feature a strong, fast group up top who made a couple of run-outs and forced the Fillies to play catch up all night.

    The potential effects of Hurricane Harvey moved Harrison County’s Friday home football game to a Saturday away game with Montgomery County.  
    This and Montgomery County’s ability to run over and pass around Harrison County’s defense made for a long night for the Thorobreds in a 36-14 loss.  
    Aiding the defense’s troubles with tackling was the offense’s inability to move the ball along with committing six turnovers.

    In a pair of physical soccer matches the Harrison County Thorobreds tied the Grant County Braves 1-1 on Thursday and fell 2-0 to Pendleton County on Tuesday night.  
    Grant County scored in the first half on a goal that bounced off of goal keeper Max Ferguson in what was simply bad luck.  The shot was not hard but found a way to get by one of the better goal keepers in the area for the score.

    The 10-and-under softball team representing Harrison County, Storm, got one run back in the bottom of the inning when Alyssa Hall scored following a walk.
