Franklin County’s boys soccer team played North Oldham, the first place team in the 8th Region, Wednesday night in its second game of the Bulldog Cup. Playing with increasing confidence, the Flyers led early in the game, but fell to the Mustangs, 4-2.
The Flyers’ first goal of the game came just three minutes into the contest. Junior Patrick Melton crossed a ball from the left side to the middle where sophomore Logan Harp received the ball and scored his first goal this season. At the 29:16 mark, the Mustangs also had a crossed ball to the front of the goal and tied the game 1-1. The Mustangs scored two more goals within the last 10 minutes of the half to lead the Flyers 3-1 at halftime.
The second half was a battle of the defenses until the Mustangs scored their fourth goal of the game with 8:44 remaining. The Flyers reduced the goal difference to two when sophomore Seiver Tandy chipped a ball into the net on an assist from Harp with 3:53 remaining in the game.
“The team played well tonight, but we did have some breakdowns that North Oldham took advantage of,” FCHS coach Louis Tandy said after the game. “We got good play from Logan Harp tonight with a goal and an assist.”
Junior Josh Baeza was in goal for the Flyers.
The Flyers (4-9) travel to Louisville Saturday for their final game in the Bulldog Cup.
