GIRLS SOCCER

WHHS TIES WITH SHELBY COUNTY

SHELBYVILLE – The Lady Wolverines traveled to Shelbyville and faced a tough Lady Rockets team fought to a 1-1 draw. WHHS started slow and let the Rockets get a goal before they settled down.

“We came out the first 10 minutes of the game with no legs and very tired,” WHHS head coach Alisha Wildermuth said. “Then we settled down and got on point and played our game.”

WHHS’ Brenna Burton made a great cross and Hayley Greenwell put a left-footed strike in the back of the net for their only goal late in the first half. The second half came to an end with neither team scoring.

WHHS kept the ball on their end of the field and put the Rockets’ keeper through a workout with multiple shots. The Lady Wolverines were anchored in goal by Kat Embry in the first half and MacKenzie Jones the second half.

WHHS will travel to Madison Central to play on Wednesday.

WESTERN HILLS 2, SHELBY CO. 0 (JV)

“I was very pleased with our girls tonight, they played a good game,” Wildermuth said.

BOYS SOCCER

COUNTY JV ROLLS PAST FRANKFORT

The Franklin County boys JV soccer team improved its record to 2-0 Monday evening after a decisive win over Frankfort High at the Sower Soccer Complex. The final score was 5-1.

The Flyers scored first at the 17:52 mark in the first half on a goal by freshman Tyrone Hayden on an assist from freshman Seiver Tandy. Less than 12 minutes later, Hayden scored his second goal for the Flyers on an assist from sophomore Patrick Melton.

The Flyers scored their third goal of the game with 28:12 remaining in the second half. Sophomore Joe Meyer headed a ball into the net on a corner from Tandy.

The Panthers continued to play hard and followed the Flyer goal with a goal by Marcus Bartholomew who was assisted by Bailey Spade.

As the clock continued toward the final horn, the Flyers continued their offensive attack when sophomore Dawson Willis scored after a deflection from freshman defender, Logan Harp. Willis then scored his second and the final Flyer goal of the game with five minutes remaining.

“The boys played pretty well throughout the entire game. They started out flat, then started putting it together,” Franklin County JV coach Eric Ashcraft said. “They played good team soccer and played nice through balls to score a couple of goals. Our bench stepped up big and played well today, putting a couple goals in the back of the net. I am very pleased with how these boys played.”

The Franklin County Boys JV plays Western Hills on Wednesday night at the Sower Soccer Complex at 5:30.
