Frankfort holds off Bearcats 2-1

By LINDA YOUNKIN State Journal Sports Writer Published:

Fresh off winning its Class A regional championship game, Frankfort High's boys soccer team defeated Anderson County 2-1 Tuesday at Sower Soccer Field.

The Panthers started the season 0-4 but haven't lost in their last four games and are now 3-4-1. One clear sign of their improvement was their 6-2 win Saturday in the regional final over Owen County, a team that had beaten FHS 5-2 last month in the Rotary Capital City Classic.

"We're starting to play well together," FHS senior Thomas Sachtler said. "We had a tough time in the beginning of the year. We have a bunch of young guys, and it took four or five games to get in sync, but we're starting to play to our potential."

On Tuesday Frankfort outshot the Bearcats 22-8 and never trailed in the game.

"I thought we played well," FHS coach Sherrill Smith said. "I didn't get as many subs in as I usually do. I try to do that, but the flow of the game didn't allow it.

"We had 22 shots to their eight," he added. "As you can see, we couldn't get anything to go for some reason."
