    The Harrison County Thorobreds defeated the Mason County Royals Tuesday night in Maysville, 4-0.
    Earlier last week, the Breds picked up their first win of the season with a home win of 4-1 over Bryan Station.

  • Fillies volleyball wins one of four in Dink Scott Tournament

    If ever the old saying “close only counts in horse shoes and hand grenades” was appropriate for sports, it would describe the last five volleyball matches for the Harrison County Fillies.  
    The Fillies traveled to Mt. Sterling to play in the Dink Scott Memorial Invitational and won one of four matches.Each match was closer than the next, including the match that the Fillies won over Bryan Station.  
    The Fillies opened tournament play with a two-set-to-one win over the Lady Defenders 13-21, 21-16, and 15-12.

  • The Reds; what an accommodating franchise

    Before I get into my topic of the week, I want to lament the plight or seemingly the plight of Big 10 football.  
    After week two of the season, here is a run down of the Big 10 schools.  
    Indiana beat Indiana State 28-10 and was idle the next week.  That wouldn’t seem so good if the others performed better.  
    Illinois barely beat Youngstown State and Western Kentucky and probably couldn’t beat WKU three out of 10 times.  

  • Fillies roll past St. Patrick, lose to Bourbon County

    Despite playing without three starters, the Harrison County Fillies made short work of the Saints of Maysville St. Patrick Thursday winning 9-1.  
    Coach Kevin Gaunce had challenged his players in practice to get some early goals so they could work on some game time issues. The Fillies answered his challenge.  
    Freshman Charlie Moore put a rebounded ball back into the net for her first varsity goal to open the scoring.  
    Amelia Bolin and Kelby Gaunce put the next two scores in and the rout was on.
