Thursday night at the Athletic Complex the Harrison County Thorobreds soccer squad had its way with the St. Patrick Saints pounding the Maysville 11 by 8-1.
The St. Patrick team actually scored the first goal about 10 minutes into the contest as the Harrison County team was a little slow getting back to their positions.
This goal seemed to wake up a sleeping giant as the Breds buried goal after goal into the back of the net past the hapless St. Patrick goal keeper.
Logan Wiley led the way with three goals for the Thorobreds. Kyle Foster, Daniel Klapheke, Austin Moore, Grant Carr and Matt Mastin each scored one goal.
Foster had three assists while Mastin, Klapheke, Wiley, Joe Thomas, Cody Marshall and Brandon Watkins each added one.
Christian Carey was the goal keeper and he limited the visiting team to the one early goal.
The win makes the Harrison County record 7-5-1 while St. Patrick falls to 5-8-1.
A more focused Bryan Station squad handed the Thorobreds a 2-nil defeat Tuesday night in Lexington much to the disappointment of Coach Nick Hill.
“While we are not a physical team, we found contact tonight of any kind awarded the Defenders a free kick,” he noted. “We waited until we were two goals down and then we couldn’t do enough to catch up. I don’t feel like they are better than us, but they were more focused on the job tonight and willed themselves to win.”
Bryan Station improves to 5-5-1 with the win while the Thorobreds fall to 7-6-1.
The next Thorobreds action will be Thursday night at LeBus Field when Senior Night festivities will take place.
The 8-6-3 Paris Greyhounds will provide considerable competition for the evening.
The varsity game begins at 5:30 p.m. with the Senior Night ceremonies afterwards. The junior varsity will kick off around 7:30 p.m. Seniors to be honored are Joe Thomas, Cody Honeycutt, Brandon Watkins, Kyle Foster, Ben Anness, Cody Marshall, Daniel Klapheke and Mathew Mastin.
