Boone County 2 Lexington Catholic 1


Recommended Posts

Boone County scored 2 in the first half and were ahead 2-0 at the intermission. They hung on the rest of the way to get the victory. The offense is doing a better job of putting pressure on the goal with more opportunities and their defense played really well last night.

To add some detail to oldgrappler's post.


Boone came out of the gates pressing LC. It was a very physical match. It became apparent especially late in the first half that LC was frustrated that they were being matched physically. Both teams had about the same amount of shots on goal through the whole game. Boone's keepers made a number of excellent saves.


The first score for Boone happened at the 29 minute mark. Number 11, I think Bo Downs, got a through ball to run out with the LC sweeper on his hip. #11 took a hard shot at the goal, LC keep made a slapping stop only to have it bounce right back to the Boone player for a bottom of the foot tap in.


#11 scored again at the 22 minute mark with a nice feed from #3 on the left side of the goal. #11 came running down the middle to slam the ball into the back of the net.


Half time, it was 2-0 Boone.


LC came out second half doing a better job of possessing the ball. The Boone defense bent but didn't break. #22 for Boone had a very good game on defense. It is nice to see #4 for Boone playing stopper. The young man is very fast and did a good job of breaking up any momentum LC forwards started.


As with many high school teams, Boone seemed to lose a little focus for about a 12-15 minutes span which is when LC scored at about the 25 minute mark. I don't know if it was the rotation of subs or fatigue. I think Coach Norris will get that figured out by district play time. I do have to say that Boone has shown some very good improvement over the last 3-4 games. They still have more to improve on but they should be fun to watch.


Congrats to Boone players and coaches for doing NKY proud.

Thanks for the summary, Soccer01. I wasn't up to it when I got home last night.


Let me add some names to the numbers you mentioned.


#11 is Bo Downs and he scored both goals for Boone.

#3 is Eddy Gil whom you said got the assist on one of the goals. Boone twitter feed gives credit for assists to #9 Nathan Rice and #7 Brendon Loechel. I couldn't tell you which is correct. Gil did make significant contributions to the offense from his left back position with overlapping runs.


#22 is Austin Ziegelmeyer

#4 is Joel Shutt LC forwards must not have appreciated his efforts 'cause he took a shot in the back from one of their players. LC player received a yellow card.


#27 Daniel Dahms deserves a mention for his efforts at sweeper. He has struggled a bit with injury but when he is in the game it strengthens the whole Boone defense.


Keep working guys. You are improving as a team. You are getting more shots on goal and that will translate into scoring, and the defense is tightening up. Stay healthy! You have a month until tournament time.
