Danville boys reach All 'A' soccer regional final

September 10, 2004

Sophomore Casey Maupin scored the game-winning goal with less than two minutes to play as the Danville boys beat visiting Corbin 3-2 and advanced to the finals of the 15th/16th Region All "A" Classic.

Danville (3-2-1) tied the game at 2-all when Matthew Schulz took a pass from Jameson Gay and finished in the 43rd minute. Then, with just 1:24 to play, Maupin headed in a corner kick off the foot of Jeffrey Ricker.

"If you know Casey, he's the shortest guy out on that field," Danville coach Gary Reynolds said. "That was a great heads-up play on his part."

Danville fell behind 1-0 on an own-goal that was credited to Corbin's Roger Taylor in the 20th minute. The Admirals tied it with 13:41 left in the first half when Eric Smiley scored off a Jameson Gay assist.


Corbin (3-3-1) moved back in front with 1:51 to play before halftime when Trey Monaco scored.

"They owned us in the first half," Reynolds said. "We couldn't get anything going. We looked like Keystone Kops at times."

Danville outshot Corbin 9-4 in the game.

The Admirals will host Somerset, a 5-0 winner over Oneida Baptist, in the championship game at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Admiral Stadium.

Harrodsburg 4, Washington County 1 - Jared Holt scored twice as Harrodsburg (2-2) turned back Washington.

Manuel Garcia scored once, and the Pioneers also got an own-goal. They had 20 shots on goal and 10 saves.


Boyle County 5, Pulaski County 0 - At Somerset, Sarah Hall scored four goals and Caitlin Day had a goal and two assists to help Boyle (4-2-1) blanked Pulaski (0-4).

Hall had two goals and Day had a goal and two assists in the first half as Boyle (4-2-1) opened up a 3-0 lead.

Hall added two more goals in the second half, but coach Brian Deem said there was plenty of praise to go around.

"It's a process for us right now, but I think we're playing well," Deem said. "Marissa Hibbs did a fabulous job for us, and all of our backs did well. Our outside mids, Kelsey Arnett, Erica Adams and Emily Woolum played great. But Caitlin Day was the standout tonight, even though Sarah Hall scored four goals. Day was fabulous in the field for us today."

Danville 3, North Laurel 0 - At Danville, the Lady Admirals avenged shutouts the previous three years with a win over North Laurel.

Danville (5-2) had lost its last three games against North Laurel (4-2) by a total of 9-0. But the Admirals outshot the Jaguars 32-9 Thursday.

"We dominated this game, as indicated by the shots taken and goals scored," Danville coach Mike Lauer said. "None of North Laurel's chances were serious threats."

Alex Meckes scored twice, once in the 10th minute off a Morgan Young assist and once in the 44th minute off a pass from McKenzie McAfee. Jordan Davis added her fourth goal of the year, an unassisted goal, in the 77th minute.
