FCHS defeats Lady Panthers

By LINDA YOUNKIN State Journal Sports Writer Published:

Franklin County's girls soccer team saved its best game for a crosstown rival, beating Frankfort High 2-0 Wednesday at Sower Soccer Field.

"They came to play today," FCHS assistant coach Emily Brechting said. "We've been a little off lately, but we had good leadership down the center of the field."

"This is what we see in practice on a regular basis," FCHS coach Charley Carlson said. "We've played some hard teams, and they've learned some lessons. It's nice to see they have the capability to work together."

The two teams played to a scoreless tie at halftime, but the Lady Flyers took the lead early in the second half on a goal by Claire Poh with 36 minutes left in the game.

"In the second half we played much better with our passing," Poh said. "This was the team I knew we could be. Especially being Frankfort, that pushed our spirit up. We really wanted to win."

FCHS lost to Frankfort in a shootout in the Rotary Capital City Classic last month.

"It's kind of a rivalry," Poh said, "and we had a lot of fans supporting us."
