MIDDLESBORO - The Garrard County boys rolled to an easy 7-0 win over Middlesboro on Saturday, but the Golden Lions also suffered a costly loss.
Brandon Merriman fractured a bone in his foot and will miss the rest of the season, Garrard coach Jonathan Martin said. Martin said Merriman was moving toward the goal to try to make a play when he hit the post.
"Brandon's a huge loss for our team. He's our most physical player, and he makes a lot of hustle plays for us," Martin said.
Cory Horn and Zack Doan scored once in each half and Jacob Denny and Colby Grider had two assists each for Garrard (14-0-1), which led 2-0 at halftime and outshot Middlesboro (3-9) 40-7.
