  • 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.

  • Hall nets hat trick, Panthers soccer rolls over Henry

    After falling behind 1-0 in the opening five minutes, the Panther soccer team rattled off five straight against the visiting Henry County Wildcats (0-2) for their first district and conference win of the season Monday night.

    Head coach Ben Crutcher said he thought his team (2-2) came out a little slow, but was not worried about that first Henry County goal because he attributed it to his team being tired from their doubleheader Saturday.

  • 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.

    Carroll squeaked out a tight 25-22 win in game one and commanded the serve in game two, winning 25-11. Sophomore Kelly Layton scored five points off the serve, while sophomore Stevie Ogburn added three more. Senior Ashley Gentry scored two points late for Carroll, including an ace.

    Heading into the scrimmage against Fort Knox High School Friday, Aug. 10, football head coach Mike Weedman did not know what kind of team he would be putting out on to the field.

    For the Panthers’ soccer team, second place is no longer good enough.

    The Carroll County High School boys have finished second in NCKC the last two years in a row and are determined to hang a banner this season.

    “We didn’t maximize our full potential with our seniors class and junior class,” head coach Ben Crutcher said, whose team ended last season with an 8-11-1 record. “… This year, we expect a lot of good things, especially from our senior class.”
