Boyle County made sure its first game in the inaugural Boyle County Classic was a classic.
Jason Hopper took a long pass from Roland Achenjang and scored with no time remaining on the clock as the Rebels topped Pulaski Southwestern 1-0 Thursday and moved into the finals of its own tournament.
"This is the kind of thing that brings a team together," Boyle coach Greg Conley said.
"You get a goal with no time on the clock to go to the finals. I can't argue with that."
Boyle (7-3-1) will face East Jessamine, which defeated George Rogers Clark 3-2 on sudden death penalty kicks in the first game, in the championship game Saturday night.
The Rebels almost needed penalty kicks, but Hopper's shot won the game.
Southwestern (4-6-3) took a direct kick withless than 30 seconds left, but it was deflected to the right side of the field. Boyle moved the ball up and Achenjang sent it across the field to Hopper, who put it into the left corner on one touch past a diving Casey Inabnitt in the Warriors' goal.
