    The Harrison County Thorobreds let two scoring opportunities slip through their fingers in the first quarter and dropped an exciting game Friday night at the Athletic Complex.  
    The Breds wrapped two long drives around a Greenup County score in the first period to trail 8-0 after one quarter of play.

    Coach Larry Kendall welcomed two starters back from last year’s 2014-15 region semi finalists Thorobreds.  
    The catch is that they just started Monday after finishing the football season.  
    Four of the six returning varsity players played football, including senior starters Zack Pulliam and Brock Jenkins along with sixth man Jovon Williams.

    Plans finalized for
    Breds to play in Indy Feb. 6
    The much-talked-about game now has concrete plans as the Harrison County Thorobreds will face the Collins Titans Feb. 6. This was scheduled to be a home game for the Thorobreds but instead will be played in Banker’s Life Arena in Indianapolis.  
    Tickets for the event are $14.80 each.

  • This is bigger than a game

    Veteran’s Day is Wednesday, which will be either the day you get the paper or the day before, depending how your paper gets to your house.  
    Veterans are the people who make it so we can play our sports so it is fitting I think to write about veterans in sports.  
    I will leave people out so please understand the intent of writing is to honor our veterans and do not focus on someone left out.
    Readers who are older than me will understand much more than those younger about what people had to endure during war time and times of unrest.

    The Colt Classic in Danville was made up of some of the stronger bowling teams in Louisville as well as teams from Tennessee and central Kentucky. There were 13 teams in the boys’ competition and 11 teams in the girls’ competition.
    The Fillies finished in second place only 19 pins behind Graves County in the qualifying rounds.  
    Harrison County missed a few easy spares in the Baker matches and finished third, 100 points out of second for the tournament.
