WHHS teams split Saturday games

By LINDA YOUNKIN State Journal Sports Writer Published:

Most athletes aren't thrilled with a tie, but after two straight losses Saturday's scoreless tie with West Jessamine looked pretty good to Western Hills' boys soccer team.

"After two losses any team is going to feel down," said WHHS senior Tim Sayles after Saturday's game at Sower Soccer Field. "We didn't lose, but we didn't win. It still has a down a little, but it's better than a loss."

Western Hills' girls team also played at Sower Saturday, losing to Sayre 3-0.

West Jessamine came into Saturday's game unbeaten and ranked 15th in the state with a 4-0-1 record. The Colts threatened early in the game, but WHHS dominated play in the second half.

"We took over the second half," Sayles said.

"In the second half we stepped it up," added teammate Allen Sweeney. "We were takingt a lot of runs, and we had a lot of good series."

"We had a lot of good near-post balls on corner kicks," Sayles added.

But the Wolverines weren't able to capitalize.
