Boyle boys win Classic

September 28, 2003

Boyle County got two goals from senior Max Gideon as the Rebels defeated East Jessamine 3-1 to win the first-ever Boyle County Classic Saturday night.

Nick Farmwald scored Boyle's other goal as the Rebels improved to 8-3-1.

"We had standout performances from just about everyone on the field tonight," Boyle coach Greg Conley said. "It didn't look nearly as pretty as it has the last couple of games. The field was extremely sloppy and muddy and we didn't play quite as well to feet. But we won the game, and I'm very pleased with that."

Boyle plays at Sayre Monday.

Garrard County 3, Middlesboro 0 - At Lancaster, Garrard had its eighth shutout of the year in defeating Middlesboro.

Garrard's first goal came from Brandon Merriman off a Micah Wade assist. The Golden Lions (12-0) got a goal from Justin Christian off a Corey Horn assist and then Juan Ovando scored the final goal with 10 minutes to play.


"Our bench play was very good tonight," Garrard coach Jon Martin said. "We got good play from Micah Smith, Pat Kluesener, Juan Ovando, Justin Christian and Jimmy Ploskonka."

Garrard outshot Middlesboro 39-6. The Lions have allowed only four goals all season, best in the state, and have scored 69.

"Middlesboro is a very physical team," Martin said. "I knew they were defensive minded, and they kept clearning the ball out of our offensive end."

Ohio School for the Deaf 6, Kentucky School for the Deaf 1 - At Danville, KSD gave up four goals in the first 12 minutes and couldn't bounce back.

Ohio led 4-0 before J.D. Hardy scored KSD's lone goal in the 14th minute.

"Ohio is obviously very skilled and deep in experience with soccer," KSD coach Paul Smiley said. "The first 10 minutes, KSD came out very flat and didn't play well. But they played very good for the rest of the game."

Smiley said Matt Spainhoward and Roderick Hodge played well on defense for KSD, while Hardy and Michael Hayes did a good job at forward.

KSD wrapped up its varsity schedule with a 1-2 record.


Middlesboro 3, Danville 0 - At Danville, Megan Mars of Middlesboro got a hat trick against the Admirals.

Mars scored in the 28th, 54th and 76th minutes for Middlesboro.

Middlesboro held an 18-16 shot advantage and a 2-1 advantage on corner kicks.

"The girls put up a good effort," Danville coach Marty Sullivan said. "We had several opportunities, but we couldn't cash in."
