October 10, 2003

The two teams played to a scoreless first 61 minutes, but Danville (7-8-1) broke the game open in the final 19 minutes.

Miguel Magana scored with 18:35 to play off a pass from Jameson Gay, and Miles Garriott scored off a free kick just 26 seconds later.

Jeff Ricker followed his own deflection with a goal at the in the 66th minute, Taylor Lamblin scored an unassisted goal with 7:20 to play, and Magana scored of a deflection of Gay's shot with 2:44 to play to round out the scoring.

"In the second half, once we got one in, things started to flow," Danville coach Gary Reynolds said. "I had a feeling that once we got one in, things would start to settle down and we'd play much better."


Danville had a 29-4 shot advantage, but Reynolds said Campbellsville goalkeeper Jake Squires played a big part in the Eagles staying tied for the first half.

"In the first half, we were getting all kinds of shots off, but Jake Squires was just incredible," Reynolds said. "He was making saves I couldn't believe he would make. He was quick as a cat, and I haven't seen anything like that in a long time."

It was the final home game for Danville's three seniors and Reynolds said all three of them played well in their farewell.

"We got outstanding play from our seniors," Reynolds said. "Out of the back, Alex Gash and Adam Hoover played extremely well and nothing got by them. They had everything under control. Miles was laying out one ball after another to the flags for us in the midfield."
