Finally, the monkey is off the back of the Carroll County varsity soccer team as they take a 6-0 win from Burgin Independent High School in Harrodsburg, Ky.
The Panthers took the long trip to the Burgin Bulldogs field and came out sluggish in the first half according to head soccer coach Ben Crutcher. They finished the first half 1-0 and Crutcher said he told his team they needed to play better and they could get a win against the second-year program.
The Panthers have been without a win in two years and in this game they had a chance to change that and they did, scoring five goals in the second half, according to Crutcher.
“We played great team ball,” Crutcher said. “We continue to improve every game. We really needed this win for team morale. Maybe they’ll believe in themselves for many more wins.”
Kevin Welch scored three of the Panther goals with Brandon Stewart, Jacob Griffin and Seth Harmon each scoring one goal.
The Panthers have a record of 1-5-3 with nine games left and Crutcher believes his team could win most if not all of the remaining games.
The Panthers played Gallatin County at home Tuesday night, but results were not available before press time.
