WHHS takes Rotary Classic

By LINDA YOUNKIN and STEPHEN M. VEST Published:

Western Hills' girls soccer team made it back-to-back Rotary Capital City Classic championships Saturday night, beating Franklin County 3-0 to go undefeated in the tournament at Sower Soccer Field.

Frankfort High, which defeated Owen County 4-1 Saturday, finished second in the tournament with the Lady Flyers taking third place.

Senior Rachel Mann scored two of the Lady Wolverines' three goals Saturday as the Lady Wolverines improved to 3-1.

"We played two tough scrimmages and opened the season with Woodford County. Playing those good teams early is starting to pay dividends now," said WHHS coach Keith Jackson, whose team posted its second shutout of the season and the tournament. WHHS also blanked Owen County behind keeper Tiffany Cammuse.

Mann's first goal, a shot into the left corner, came with 14:06 left in the first half. She also scored the Lady Wolverines' third goal on a pass from junior Davin Caudill with 22:30 left in the game.

Western Hills' other goal came on a free kick by senior Mollie Wade less than three minutes into the second half.

Western Hills had 16 shots on goal to Franklin County's 10. Macy Hensley was in goal for FCHS.

Franklin County's best scoring opportunity came in the first half when sophomore Kayla Fitzgerald's penalty kick sailed just high of the goal.
