  • Carroll boys soccer drops home...

    The Carroll County boys soccer team led North Oldham for about 24 minutes during the first half, but were unable to keep up in the second half, falling 7-1, Aug. 23.

    Senior David Marshall got Carroll County on the board first in the eighth minute. Felix Avila passed the ball up and over the North Oldham defense, and Marshall outhustled everyone to get to the ball first. The keeper came out to attempt to retrieve the ball, but Marshall maneuvered around him and scored, right to left.

  • Panthers soccer comes close, but...

    The Panthers soccer team was four minutes away from tying or defeating the Shelby County Rockets for the first time in program history. Unfortunately for Carroll County, it wasn’t meant to be, as Caleb Patten scored what would be the game-winner on a through pass, 3-2, Tuesday, Aug. 30.

    “We did a lot better of controlling the ball,” head coach Kevin States said. “We took it to them. The past few games we’ve let the other team take it to us, and we did a good job today of staying on top. We were unlucky to not win.”

  • Carroll loses to Calvary...
  • Lady Panthers fall to visiting...

    Despite logging a season-high 27 kills, Carroll County lost its home match to Bellevue 2-1 (22-25, 25-23, 17-25) on Aug. 24.

    Serve-receive was the difference in game one, as the Lady Panthers had seven errors, along with seven dig errors.

    “They had a lot of decent servers, some with a jump serve that floated and our defense didn’t adjust quick enough, so they kept on capitalizing on that,” head coach Lynn Eaglin said.

  • Carroll County Middle School...

    Carroll County hosted Switzerland County, Ind. Aug. 18 in the team’s home opener. The Panthers came up short on the score 20-6.

  • Young girls soccer team...

    Despite another lopsided final score, the Lady Panthers soccer team showed noticeable improvement, especially offensively, with just a couple days of practice. Carroll lost its home match Saturday to Fleming County, 6-0.

    The Lady Panthers ripped 10 shots on goal compared to 26 for Fleming County. In her second career start in goal for injured keeper Houston Lindsay, Hannah Polley notched 12 saves and gave up five goals. JV keeper Tracey Rosell entered the game late in the second half and made three saves and gave up one goal.

  • Lady Panthers fall to Dayton, 8-0

    In just the second game of the season, the Lady Panthers soccer team has taken a significant hit with the loss of its starting keeper Houston Lindsay. The senior tweaked her knee during the opener Aug. 15, against Villa Madonna and underwent an MRI. “She’s out until further notice,” head coach Josh Noble said.

    In her absence, senior midfielder Hannah Polley took over in goal, a position she has never played before.

    The Lady Panthers soccer team won their first game of the season, defeating Bellevue 5-0 on the road Aug. 22. The two teams went head-to-head again two days later in Carrollton.

  • Grant benefits from short field...

    Turnovers and penalties hurt Carroll’s chances of defeating Grant County in the Panthers’ home and season opener Friday, Aug. 19. The Braves only had one scoring drive longer than 30 yards, defeating the Panthers 28-12.

    It was the first career varsity start for freshman quarterback Andre Mumphrey. Throughout the summer, he and junior Dylan Groves battled for the position, and when the lights came on Friday night, Mumphrey was under center and Groves was taking handoffs at fullback.
