  • Slow start dooms Fillies in 54-49 loss to Boyd County

    The Harrison County Fillies traveled to Rowan County Monday night to face Boyd County in the Holbrook Drug/ Martin Luther King Classic.  
    The Fillies were able to win the final three quarters in the closely contested game but a slow first quarter pushed them to a 54-49 defeat at the hands of the Lady Lions.  
    The slow start was predominantly on defense as the Boyd County girls made 70 percent from the field in the first quarter shooting a great number of lay ups.  

  • Breds battle to win at Nicholas Co. Thursday

    In a game that was a make up of the make up game which was to be played on Dec. 6, the Harrison County Thorobreds won their second game in this week, 52-37, over the Nicholas County Bluejackets.  
    It was a grind-out affair with both teams working hard for whatever baskets that might come their way on Thursday night.  
    After starting slow, the Thorobreds battled back and forth exchanging baskets with the Bluejackets.  

  • Close finishes and officiating them

    The Thorobreds’ game with Bourbon County brings to mind some other close ones and how we can help the officials to get it right.  
    There are two opinions on the call Friday night and I will not say what I think it was because it really doesn’t make any difference.
    If you are unfamiliar with which “call” I am referring to, let me be clear. Harrison County’s Dillon Pulliam attempted a field goal with the score tied at 45 with about two seconds left in the game.

    “If we could have just changed the results of one match we would have won,” were the comments of Coach Luke Tucker following the Wednesday match between Harrison County and neighboring nemesis Bourbon County held in Paris.  
    The Thorobreds finished second to the Colonels in a large competition earlier this season and fell to them by five points on Wednesday.

  • This one is for the wounded

    Earlier today I got a jump on spring cleaning and tackled my “column fodder” pile of scribbles and note fragments.
    Sometimes people ask how I think of stuff to write each week. I’d like to say, “The Spirit moves me,” and sometimes that’s hopefully true. Most of the time, however, I read or hear something that sparks a thought. Some result in a full-blown column and some merely snippets.
    Today is a snippets day.
