 Braving a heat index of 101 degrees, the Marion County Knights (1-1) defeated the Campbellsville Eagles, 5-1, to open their season last week. Sophomore forward Alan Guzman and senior forward Anthony Bradshaw led the Knights’ attack with two goals each while the team ran the trap successfully to catch the Eagles (1-1) off sides seven times. 


Knights Coach Greg Conley said though the team won by a large margin, they still have work ahead of them.

“What we did do well is we started talking tonight,” Conley said. “As a young team, that’s very, very important, and when we were talking, we were scoring goals.”

Knights senior forward Anthony Bradshaw thought the game went well.

“I think we did pretty good as a young team,” Bradshaw said. “We got a lot to learn but for a first game, we did good.”

He said the communication between teammates is improving but still needs work.

Knights’ goalkeeper John David May said the teamwork also went well.

“I think we were stringing passes together all right,” May said.

Conley said the team is performing up to expectations, but will see where it is on the food chain next week after they have faced off against the LaRue County Hawks and John Hardin Bulldogs.

On Aug. 23, the Knights squared off against the Hawks (1-2) and fell 4-3 in overtime.
