Mercer boys, Danville girls win

September 17, 2004

The Danville boys shut out Pulaski County 3-0 Thursday night at Somerset to post their fourth straight win.

Jameson Gay, Matthew Schulz and Michael Ward scored for Danville (5-2-1).

"Pulaski County is also a young team, but they fought us very hard, but I felt like we did pretty much control the game," Danville coach Gary Reynolds said. "We had some nice passing put together tonight that created some real opportunities for us."

Gay scored off a Jeff Ricker corner kick with 7:53 left in the first half, and Danville made it 2-0 when Schulz scored on a breakaway 1:41 into the second half. Ward added an insurance goal off Ricker's second assist of the night.

Pulaski (3-5) got only four shots against the Danville defense - the Admirals had 12 shots - and goalkeeper Matt Booth saved all four.


Garrard County 7, Campbelsville 0 - At Lancaster, Jacob Denny scored his 50th career goal to start the game, then added two more goals as Garrard rolled over visiting Campbellsville.

Garrard has scored a state-high 61 goals this year and given up only nine.

Garrard led 5-0 at halftime after Denny had two goals and an assist in the first half. His first goal, the 50th of his career, came in the 17th minute, and was followed eight minutes later by Pat Kluesener's goal off a Corey Horn assist.

Denny scored again off a Justin Christian assist and Denny then assisted on Will Keeton's goal. With three minutes to go before the break, Horn scored on a pass from Malcolm Smith.

Denny scored on a penalty kick four minutes into the second half, and Juan Ovando closed out the scoring on a penalty kick with seven minutes to go.

Garrard outshot Campbellsville 52-3, including 19-1 in the second half.

"We passed the ball well, and we communicated well," Garrard coach Jon Martin said. "This was one of our best team efforts for the season. Jacob and Corey worked well tonight, and Justin and Juan gave us a big lift off the bench."

Corey Lawwill got his third shutout of the year in goal for the Golden Lions.

Mercer County 5, Harrodsburg 1 - At Harrodsburg, host Mercer (2-8) pulled out to a 2-1 halftime lead, then left Harrodsburg (1-5) behind with three-second half goals to avenge an early-season loss.

Manuel Garcia got the only goal for Harrodsburg, which beat Mercer 1-0 Aug. 24 in an Anderson County tournament.

"My kids were very sluggish, and they didn't play (well) at all," Harrodsburg coach Chris Moyo said.


Danville 2, Franklin County 1 - At Danville, Danville (7-2) scored twice in the last seven minutes to rally past Franklin (1-5-1), getting the game-winning goal from Alyssa Trueblood with less than four minutes to play.

Franklin had broken a scoreless tie with a goal in the 61st minute, but Danville's McKenzie McAfee tied the game at 1-all with an unassisted goal in the 74th minute, her fourth goal of the season.

Trueblood scored the deciding goal on a free kick in the 77th minute. She shot from about 30 yards out, putting the ball past the goalkeeper and into the upper right corner of the net.

"Franklin County may have only one win, but they are a tough, physical and skilled team," Danville coach Michael Lauer said. "They gave us a little taste of what things will be like in the postseason. I am very proud of our team's resilience."

Lauer said the Lady Admirals responded well after missing a penalty kick with about 14 minutes to go.

"We could've just packed it in after that. Instead, we did not change our play and maybe even pushed a little harder, and when we got our chances took advantage of them."

Danville's game Saturday at Middlesboro will decide the 15th/16th Region All "A" Classic championship.
