Senior night isn't sweet for boy's soccer

-A A +A
By Jesse Osbourne

Senior night didn't result in a happy ending for Marion County High School's boys' soccer team (1-14-1) Tuesday of last week at home.  Facing the number two team in the region, John Hardin (14-4-1), the second-to-last place Knights couldn't give the seniors a happy farewell.  However, Head Coach Greg Conley said the Knights played well and didn't give up any earned goals.  Conley said he has been very pleased with the last two weeks of play, which also included a 2-1 road loss to a ranked Berea team. Conley said the Knights were leading at the half but the lead slipped away in the second half.  Conley also said the team has been very focused on preparing for the district tournament, which began Tuesday night in Mercer County against Taylor County. Marion lost to Taylor 3-2 at home earlier this season and looks to avenge the loss.  Conley said the offense is really starting to gel and he's waiting for a blow out win for the Knights. Conley said he thinks the Knights are just starting to play their best soccer. The winner of their game plays Boyle County on Wednesday at 6 p.m.  In junior varsity action, the Knights lost to Tates Creek 1-0 over the weekend at a tournament at Franklin County High School. Conley said the lone goal was the result of a silly mistake and the squad had a strong outing against the Lexington team.
