  • Franklin County crushes Knights

    The Marion County High School boys' soccer team took most of last week off to heal up for postseason play.

    Their lone game was a 5-0 loss to Franklin County under a harvest moon at Elmer J. George Field Thursday.

    According to Knights Head Coach Greg Conley, youth was on display once again.

    "It's a young team," he said. "We just can't put together 80 consistent minutes. We can play with anyone for a half."

    The Knights did hold Franklin County to only one goal in the first half. The second half didn't go as well.

  • Soccer Knights face heavy fire

    After reaching the .500 mark for the first time this season, the Marion County High School boys' soccer team faced two teams with a lot of fire power last week.  The Knights fell 9-1 to Western Hills on the road Saturday and 6-1 Thursday to Danville at home. They came from behind to beat Bardstown 5-2 Tuesday.  Western Hills proved to be too much for the Knights to handle. "They are one heck of a team. They are hands down best team we've played," Knights Head Coach Greg Conley said.
