Last week the Marion County High School boys soccer team played Anderson and Meade counties, both on the road. The Knights were held scoreless in back-to-back games for the first time of the season during these two outings. Anderson County was able to defeat the Knights on Tuesday by a final score of 3-0, and Meade County blanked the Knights on Thursday, 2-0.
Head Coach Greg Conley said that this was a tough stretch of the season.
“Last week was hard for us,” he said. “Playing two strong physical teams resulted in several key injuries and games that could have been better if we had better effort the entire game.”
The Knights struggled in the first half of each game, and allowed their opponent to take control according to Coach Conley. The Knights have been battling injuries and haven’t had their complete starting lineup in place in nearly two weeks.
Marion County has upcoming games against Franklin County, who is ranked in the most recent Kentucky polls. Saturday, the Knights will travel to John Hardin who are 9-5-1, and sit in fourth place in region five.
Yesterday, Marion County traveled to take on the Cardinals of Taylor County, but results were unknown as of press time.
The entire soccer team along with the coaching staff and their spouses ran in the Pokey Pig 5K race as part of the 2011 Ham Days festivities. All players finished in under 30 minutes, led by Nathan Devine with a 7th place finish in just under 20 minutes.
