KSD loses first varsity soccer game

September 14, 2003

Kentucky School for the Deaf's soccer team played its first-ever varsity game Saturday, falling 5-4 to visiting Cincinnati St. Rita School for the Deaf.

St. Rita jumped out on top early, scoring twice in the first 15 minutes. KSD answered with two goals of its own, one from Tyler Burke in the 26th minute and one from Michael Hayes in the 34th. The game was tied 2-2 at the half.

St. Rita again started quickly, scoring twice in the first 12 minutes of the second half. Burke cut the deficit to 4-3 with a goal 18 minutes into the second half, but St. Rita put in its final goal to go up 5-3. Travis Zornosa scored KSD's final goal with 12 minutes to play.

KSD coach Paul Smiley said he was happy to see his team play so well and play well together.

"We had a tremendous defensive effort by Drew Meade and Dustin Stephens," Smiley said.


The Colonels have two more varsity games this season, taking on St. Rita's Thursday, then hosting Ohio School for the Deaf in KSD's homecoming game.

Boyle County had plenty of opportunities to score, but couldn't get any of them to go in a 2-0 loss to Marion County Saturday at Danville.

The Rebels outshot Marion 13-9 in the game, including an 8-3 margin in the first half, but couldn't find the back of the net.

"Even though we were flat, we were still able to mount quite a few attacks," coach Brian Deem said. "Joanna Frauenhoffer had three great looks at the goal, but was unable to put it in. Lindsay Boitnott hit the crossbar and Lydia Hignite had two shots that were good looks, but they didn't get in the goal."

Marion went up 1-0 on a goal in the 30th minute, but Deem said he still felt good about his team's chances in the second half. However, Marion scored its final goal on a rebound in the second half to seal the win.
