The games against Montgomery County in the past years have been far from favorable. That is until this season when the boys’ soccer team pulled off a 2-0 victory.

“It felt good to get the first win of the season especially since it came from beating Montgomery County,” said junior John Janes.

This is only the second win the team has been able to get over Montgomery County in the past nine years with the last win coming in 2007.

Last season’s 10-2 loss to Montgomery was “humiliating,” according to Janes.

Landon Lowry, a senior and one of the captains of the team, said, “This win feels good,
especially because of how bad we lost last year. It shows how well we are able to play.”

It was the first win of the season for the team after getting off to a rough start, going 0-5-1 through the first six games.

“The win gives us a boost of confidence heading into the rest of the season,” Lowry said.

Since the win over Montgomery County, the team gone 5-2-1 through their next seven games. In a district loss to Bourbon County, the team fell 3-1 on penalties.

At press time, the team had five road games remaining before district play begins.

“The team has found itself and with that we are going to be able to play some exciting soccer,” says Janes.

Lowry and Janes both believe that the soccer team is capable of winning the district title, while Lowry goes as far as saying that the team is capable of being regional champions and making it into the state tournament.
