  • Boys soccer defeats Gallatin off Byrd goal in OT

    Elbows flying, tempers flaring, tension mounting. Add in a dash of late-game heroics, and it must be a Carroll/Gallatin game.

    About a minute into the second five-minute overtime, senior Josh McCarty delivered a beautiful, high and deep throw-in from the right sideline toward the goal. The ball bounced over several players, and junior Taylor Byrd was in the right place at the right time, nudging the ball into the goal to beat the visiting Wildcats 2-1 Thursday night.

    Things did not start out so well for the Panthers, however.

  • Lady Panthers lose in shoot out to Henry County

    The Lady Panthers made history Monday night; they were the first Carroll County soccer team to extend a match into penalty kicks. Because it was a district game, one school had to leave the pitch victorious.  Unfortunately, the girls (0-3) were on the losing side of the coin as the team converted two out of five shots compared to Henry County’s three, losing 4-3 at Panther Field.

    Tied 1-1 at the end of regulation, the two teams played two five-minute quarters. The tie remained; so the teams moved on to compete in the penalty kick shootout.

  • Boys lose 3-0 to Walton-Verona

    The 2012 season got off to a slow start for the Panthers soccer team, as they dropped their season and home opener to conference opponent Walton-Verona, 3-0, Tuesday, Aug. 14.

    Head coach Ben Crutcher said he did not have much choice in scheduling because Carroll was in a holding-pattern due to district realignment. By the time he was ready to schedule, the only available slot was at the beginning of the year.

  • Lady Panthers stumble out the gate to Lady Rockets

    Intimidation may have been a factor in the Carroll County Lady Panthers’ season and home opener against the visiting Shelby County Lady Rockets. Memories of last year’s 9-0 road loss may have echoed in the backs of their minds as they took the field to begin the 2012 campaign.

    The Lady Panthers were down 4-0 at the midway point of the first half and had dug themselves into an 8-0 crater by the half.
