    When the Fillies headed to Georgetown they had only 11 players to begin the match and ended the match playing with just 10. 
    The Fillies scored first just four minutes into the match when Anna Garrison played a ball from the wing to Laurel McDaniel who beat a couple of defenders and put a nice roller past the keeper.

    The 7th grade Colts lost a 16-0 verdict to Robert D. Campbell in the championship game of the Bluegrass Conference, Thursday at McNabb Middle School in Montgomery County.

  • Football is safety first, but...

    In my 33 plus years of high school football officiating, I learned pretty quickly that rule changes were for one of two reasons. First and foremost was the safety of the participants.

    First, the knee injuries were addressed with no blocking below the waist except for in the free blocking zone.

    I have fretted and stewed about the Harrison County School District’s “test scores” since they were released on Sept. 24.
    Not because the scores are ‘bad,’ but because it is so difficult to try to decipher what those scores mean.
    Kentucky is another one of those “transition years” of the testing cycle that we’ve all become accustomed to.

    A one hour and fifty-three minute weather delay seemed to get the Harrison County Thorobreds offense out of sync, especially in the first half but nothing phased the Breds defense as Harrison County won 19-0, over Mason County, Friday in Maysville.  
    The Breds allowed 55 yards of total offense for the first half and only one yard in the second as they completely dominated the Royals.  I
