September 24, 2004

Sarah Hall scored four times and freshman Erica Adams had a goal and two assists as Boyle County topped Mercer County 5-3 Thursday at Harrodsburg.

Hall scored twice off Adams assists in the first half to put Boyle up 2-0, but Mercer scored before the half to cut the lead to 2-1.

The game continued that way, Boyle going up two before Mercer cut it back to one, through most of the second half. Adams' goal three minutes into the second half put the Rebs up 3-1, but Mercer cut it to 3-2. Then Hall scored with an assist from Kaylynn Evans to go up 4-2 before Mercer scored with about 10 minutes to play. Hall's fourth goal sealed the win for the Rebels 6-4-1, 2-2 29th District).

"I was pleased with the way our girls played tonight," Boyle coach Brian Deem said. "We played pretty well and passed the ball nicely tonight.


"I think Erica Adams tonight played something special. I'm seeing a lot of good things right now from our freshmen."

Boyle played without starters Marissa Hibbs, Leah Missik and Kelsey Arnett, but Deem said he hopes to get them back for the district tournament.


Danville 2, Anderson County 1 - At Lawrenceburg, Danville scored two second-half goals to beat the Bearcats.

A goal with less than 10 minutes to go in the first half put Anderson up 1-0 at the break, and coach Gary Reynolds said he wasn't pleased with the Admirals (6-3-1) at that point.

"At halftime, I told them I was finished with making out a lineup before the game," Reynolds said. "I will make the lineup during warmups and see who has intensity and who doesn't."

The talk seemed to spark Danville, and freshman Matthew Schulz tied the game on an unassisted goal 15 minutes into the second half. Junior Jameson Gay followed with the game-winner off a corner kick from Jeff Ricker with 7:55 to play.

"Matthew just played his heart out tonight," Reynolds said. "He and (freshman) Michael Ward have just controlled the middle. We feel like they're our dynamic duo, our Robin and Batman. They're just making things happen from the middle."

Reynolds also praised the play of defenders Gay, Taylor Lamblin, Zach Hampton and Josh Rice along with keeper Matt Booth, who had four saves.

Danville plays St. Patrick at 1 p.m. Saturday in the first round of the All "A" Classic in Frankfort.
