The Harrison Wildcats football team has opened the season with a pair of victories, but neither of those wins have been anything less than tense.

Last Friday, the Wildcats defense had to shut down Oak Hills in the second half to come away with a 14-7 victory.

“Oak Hills, with their size, is one of the better defenses we’ll see all season,” said Harrison coach Kent McCullough, whose Wildcats are 2-0 for the first time in his three-plus year tenure. “Our offensive coaches came up with a good game plan and we were able to move the ball. I didn’t like not taking advantage of red-zone opportunities.”

The beat goes on for the Harrison Ladycats soccer team, which improved its record to 5-0 last week with shutout wins over Talawanda and South Dearborn.

In the Southwest Ohio Conference win over the Braves, it took Harrison just 39 seconds to get on the board. After a penalty on Talawanda, Maggie Tidwell took a free kick from 30 yards out and scored. Shortly after that, the Braves committed yet another penalty and Tidwell converted the second free kick from 35 yards out.

Harrison boys’ golf coach Trevor Ward is looking forward to the coming weeks of the season when his team will play multiple events. Thus far, the schedule has been lean and the team’s performance suffered a bit.

Harrison finished fourth out of six teams in the Southwest Ohio Conference Shootout at Hueston Woods Golf Course, but likely could have finished higher had its top player, sophomore Daniel Bischel, not made a mistake on the course that caused his score to be disqualified.
