Boyle girls fall on late goal

DHS boys lose

September 17, 2003

Boyle County's girls led visiting South Laurel through 70 minutes of Tuesday's game, but couldn't hold on as the Cardinals scored twice in the final 10 minutes for a 2-1 win.

"This was a very disappointing loss for the Rebels," Boyle coach Brian Deem said.

The Rebels (3-4-2) led 1-0 after a second half-goal by Sarah Hall, but South Laurel (4-4) got the equalizer with 10 minutes to play. The Cardinals then got the game-winner with two minutes to go.

Boyle held a 12-6 advantage in shots on goal.

"It was a very well-played game by both teams," Deem said. "We did our jobs, made adjustments at halftime, got us our goal and absolutely were shutting down any type of offense that South Laurel was trying to generate.

"Then with 10 to go, it appeared that we just said, 'OK.' We just didn't play 80 minutes of soccer. Again, until they make a decision to play 80 minutes of soccer at the top of their level, there will be more heartbreaking losses like this to come."

Southwestern 5, Danville 2 - At Danville, a scoreless first half led to an offensive explosion in the second, but Danville couldn't get enough offense for the win.

Miguel Magana had two second-half goals for the Admirals (2-7). His first came on a direct penalty kick and the second on a header off a throw-in from Miles Garriott.

"I want to praise Miguel, obviously, and Jameson Gay," coach Gary Reynolds said. "They played awfully hard tonight. (Alex) Gash, (Adam) Hoover, (Zach) Hampton and (Josh) Rice in the back played very hard and did the best they could."

Southwestern (4-2-3) scored all five of its goals in the second half as well and outshot Danville 11-10. Danville goalkeeper Chris Booth had six saves.

"It was a hard-fought game all the way through from start to finish," Reynolds said. "At times I felt we were brilliant, and at times I felt like we just weren't thinking. But I never questioned how hard they were playing the entire game."

Danville plays at Corbin Thursday.
