Tates Creek tops Boyle

September 16, 2004

The Boyle County girls played on even terms with No. 23 Tates Creek for two-thirds of the game before falling 4-0 Wednesday at Lexington.

Tates Creek (3-3-2) scored all of its goals in the last 27 minutes as Boyle (4-4-1) ran out of steam.

"With their strength and speed, they just eventually wore us down," Boyle coach Brian Deem said. "I was extremely pleased with the way our girls played tonight."

Boyle goalkeeper Lydia Hignite logged 15 saves in the first half, when Tates Creek shot 18 times. She stopped three breakaway attempts.

"She just played an outstanding game," Deem said.


Central 3, Harrodsburg 0 - At Louisville, Central (4-3) scored twice in the first 10 minutes of the second half to break a scoreless tie and pull away from Harrodsburg (1-4).


"After their second goal, we were able to start to play with more of a sense of urgency and we were able to start an attack," Harrodsburg assistant coach Joey Holt said. "I thought we all played well against a good team."

Harrodsburg thought it had cut the deficit in half, but Jared Holt's goal off a corner kick was waved off. Central added a goal in the final five minutes.
