Boyle ties

September 03, 2004

Danville led Tates Creek for most of the second half, but the Admirals managed only a tie Thursday at Admiral Stadium thanks to a penalty kick late in the game.

Danville (1-1-1) broke a scoreless tie 5 minutes, 20 seconds into the second half when freshman Matthew Schulz scored off an assist from Jameson Gay. But coach Gary Reynolds said the Admirals already knew they could play with Tates Creek (0-1-2).

"We came out with real intensity tonight, and we knew that we were going to have to," Reynolds said. "We jumped on top of them and starting winning balls and soon realized that, yes, we can play with some of these larger schools."

Reynolds said Danville played "an outstanding defensive game," keeping Tates Creek off the scoreboard until Eric Delong scored on a penalty kick with 6:37 to play.


Matt Booth had 13 saves in goal for Danville, while Tates Creek's Jack Ambrose had nine. The Commodores outshot Danville 9-6.

"We were just very pleased with the intensity level, and we hope that we can recreate that same level of play for the rest of the season," Reynolds said.

Danville hosts Boyle County at 6 p.m. Saturday. Boyle won both regular-season meetings last year, 3-1 and 4-2.


Madison Southern 1, Boyle County 1, tie - At Danville, Sarah Hall scored midway through the first half for Boyle (3-0-1), but the Lady Rebels couldn't score again after Madison Southern (2-1-1) matched that goal.

Southern tied the game on a corner kick with about six minutes left in a first half which Boyle coach Brian Deem said it dominated.

"That was something disappointing for me as a coach, because we kind of pride ourseves on being physical ... and going to balls, and we did not do that tonight," Deem said. "Basically Madison Southern took the attack to us."

Boyle, which saw its season-opening three-game winning streak halted, was outshot 15-7 in the first half and 26-17 overall.

The Lady Rebels staved off a penalty kick by Southern with about 15 minutes to play, and Deem said they also had their share of offensive chances in the second half.

"We had about four good looks at the goal ... and they weren't even on frame," Deem said.

Boyle County plays at Danville at 8 p.m. Saturday. Boyle lost 3-2 in last year's regular-season meeting, then won 7-2 in the 28th District Tournament.

"If we come out and play Saturday night as we did in the first half tonight, it could be a long night for us," Deem said.

Madison Central 6, Garrard County 1 - At Richmond, Madison Central (3-1) buried Garrard (1-3) under a four-goal avalanche in the second half.

Garrard's Chelsea Denny tied the game at 1-all when she scored with about nine minutes left in the first half. Central regained the lead two minutes later.

Jordan Smith, Garrard's sophomore goalkeeper, had 15 saves. Central outshot the Lady Lions 29-11.
