Wednesday/Thursday Sports Briefs

By G. MICHAEL GRAHAM

The Highlands Bluebirds soccer team recorded a huge 1-0 victory over the Covington Catholic Colonels on Thursday.

Highlands has won three in a row to move to 9-6-2 overall. Covington Catholic, coach by former Highlands coach Jeremy Robertson, fell to 11-5-2.

Emerson Holladay scored the game’s only goal on an assist from Michael Cirulli. Nick Breslin recorded 10 saves at goalkeeper.

The Bluebirds take on Covington Holy Cross at 8 p.m. Tuesday.

Lightning cancels Highlands, NewCath women’s soccer game:
Lightning storms forced the postponement of Wednesday’s annual District 36 clash between the Highlands Ladybirds and Newport Central Catholic Lady Breds soccer teams. NCC head coach Kevin Turnick said a rescheduling of the game “does not look promising.”

The teams played the junior varsity contest then held Senior Night activities. The lightning started shortly thereafter.

The game is not needed for seeding purposes like the old days in District 19 with Bishop Brossart and Campbell County. The teams face off for the district title on Oct. 11 at 6 p.m. at Tower Park.

Both teams resume action Saturday. Highlands plays host to Boyle County at 7 p.m. and NewCath plays host to Russell.

Cooper beats NCC volleyball:
The Newport Central Catholic Lady Breds volleyball team fell to Conner, 3-0 (25-10, 25-22, 30-28) Wednesday. The Lady Breds are 9-19 overall.

NewCath played without two injured starters. Nikki Kiernan and Keyiara Lankeit led NCC with seven kills each. Alyssa Maier had 20 assists and Maria Froendhoff 16 digs to lead the Lady Breds.

NewCath travels to Simon Kenton on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m.
