Danville, Boyle fall

August 20, 2003

The Garrard County girls won their second game in as many days by dominating host Bryan Station 6-0 behind Abby Parsons and Chelsea Denny Tuesday at Lexington.

Parsons had three goals and an assist while Denny scored once and had two assists to lead Garrard (2-0) past the Defenders (0-2).

Senior Brittany Lane scored Garrard's first goal in the fifth minute off a Parsons assist. Parsons followed with a goal less than nine minutes later off a Denny assist. Lane scored again in the 31st minute off a Denny assist, and Denny closed the first half scoring in the 35th minute on an unassisted goal to put Garrard up 4-0 at the break.

Parsons scored two unassisted goals in the second half, in the 60th and 73rd minutes.

Garrard outshot Bryan Station 28-1, and Ashley Meadows picked up the shutout in goal.

Madison Central 4, Danville 1 - At Richmond, Lindsey Bendure had three goals for Central as Danville (0-1) was outshot 17-7.


Bendure scored the first three goals of the game, and Danville's lone goal came from freshman Hannah Martin in the 77th minute. Rosa Magana got the assist. But Central, which started 10 seniors, scored one minute later to close out the scoring.

"We really had a problem with a senior-dominated team," Danville coach Marty Sullivan said. "It's good to see somebody this good this early to find your weak spots, and we have things we need to address in a hurry. I knew this would be a tough test in our first game, but it's better to see that now and work on what we need to work on and go from there."

Sullivan praised the play of Martin and Magana as well as freshman Tashaunda Walker off the bench.

"Tashaunda came in and really helped tighten up the defense," Sullivan said. "Rosa came off the bench and was, at times, one of the best players on the field. Hannah Martin made plays without fear, challenged the goalkeeper and put the ball in the net when we needed one."

Sayre 7, Boyle County 1 - At Danville, Boyle's youth was a problem as the Rebels (0-1) struggled with six freshmen in the starting lineup.

"It's clear that the old adage saying youth is great but it doesn't account for experience was true," Boyle coach Brian Deem said. "Our lack of experience showed at times."

Sayre led 3-0 at the half, but had outshot Boyle only 5-2.

Boyle's lone goal came from Sarah Hall in the second half. A foul was called on Sayre for a dangerous play, and Hall scored off the resulting indirect kick.

Boyle was outshot 15-6 for the game.

"I thought overall we played hard," Deem said. "We're still young, and we're still trying to get people to understand the rotations and the system. Sayre played very well, they're very technically sound and they controlled the ball very well."


Garrard County 8, Campbellsville 0 - At Lancaster, Garrard (1-0) got two goals each from Jacob Denny and Pat Kluesener as it rolled past Campbellsville.

Denny and Kluesener each scored a goal in each half.

Michael Wade, Dustin Christian, Colby Grider and Corey Horn each also scored for the Golden Lions.

Garrard coach Jon Martin also praised the play of his defense in earning the shutout.

"Our defense played really well, led by Kyle Ayres and Will Stevens," Martin said.

Corey Lawwill picked up the shutout in goal.

Montgomery County 4, Danville 0 - At Danville, three first-half goals were enough to push Montgomery over Danville (0-1).

"We were just totally dominated," Danville coach Gary Reynolds said. "We have another young team, but I felt like we should have made a better showing than what we did tonight."

Danville was outshot 16-5, and Reynolds said too much of the game was spent on the Danville half of the field.

"We played a lot on our end, and that's not where we want to play," Reynolds said. "The kids played hard and did some good things. We had some opportunities and I felt like we should have scored two goals. But it's early in the season and the kids will do better as we go along because they're that type of kids."
