Danville boys deal Berea first defeat

Boyle shut out

September 10, 2003

The Danville boys handed Berea its first loss of the season and scored only their second win, a 3-0 victory Tuesday in the first round of the 15th/16th Region All "A" Classic at Somerset.

Taylor Lamblin scored twice for the Admirals (2-6), who had beaten only Taylor County in six previous games.

"We looked like somebody that kind of knew what they were doing tonight," Danville coach Gary Reynolds said. "That's been a win that's been long overdue for us. We got off to a slow start, but I think our kids are starting to put things together."

Danville's defense limited Berea (5-1-1) to only eight shots, while the Admirals had 13.

"We just got outstanding play from our defense tonight," Danville coach Gary Reynolds said, "particularly our seniors, (Adam) Hoover and (Alex) Gash and Miles (Garriott). They played just beautifully tonight and put together some nice things for us."


Danville will return to Somerset for a semifinal game at 7:30 p.m. against Model, a 5-0 winner over Campbellsville in Tuesday's second game.

Lamblin scored with 11:30 left in the first half and 25:48 left in the second, and Miguel Magana got a hand on a deflection by a Somerset player for a clinching goal with 10:04 remaining.

"They certainly were knocking on our goal late in the game," Reynolds said.

Madison Southern 2, Boyle County 0 - At Danville, Boyle (4-3) was shut out for the first time this season as Southern (2-4-1) scored a goal in each half to break a three-game losing streak.


Somerset 7, Danville 3 - At Danville, Sarah Lang shot holes through the Danville defense, scoring five goals to lead Somerset (5-1-1) over the Lady Admirals (5-3).

Danville coach Marty Sullivan said poor defense led to a big night for Lang and the Somerset offense.

"We told our defense to watch out for (Lang), and apparently either they weren't listening or they decided to take the night off," Sullivan said. "(It was) one of the poorest efforts I've seen in the stadium since I started coaching here."

The Lady Admirals outshot Somerset 23-21, but Sullivan said that was "only because their coach told them to stop shooting in the first half. Our goalkeeper, Liz Ruth, did a good job considering the fact that her defense didn't give her a whole lot of help."

Lang scored in the third, 12th, 16th and 21st minutes in the first half, "until her coach told her to stop shooting," Sullivan said. She scored again in the 45th minute.

Andrea Lang and Heidi Jones also scored second-half goals for Somerset.

Krystal Jackson scored two of Danville's three goals in the 26th and 80th minutes, and Jennifer Ward scored in the 56th minute.
