The Rowan County boys soccer team remained undefeated Tuesday night, notching a 2-1 win at Harrison County.
The victory improved the Vikings to 5-0-2 on the season.
“Harrison County is always a tough place to go, and to come out with a win is great for us,” Rowan County Head Coach Alan Evans said.
Evans said gaining momentum early was key in pulling out a win against a very good team.
“We were able to score first, which is a huge positive anytime you can do that on the road,” Evans said.
The Vikings hosted 7-1-1 Montgomery County last night at Morehead State University’s Jayne Stadium (after press time).
The game marked the annual rivalry contest between the two schools, which meet each season to battle for the “King of the Counties” Cup.
Montgomery County (8-1-1) is listed as a statewide honorable mention team, placing the Indians firmly in the mix for regional soccer supremacy.
“They’re very fast and very technical, it’s the biggest game of the year so far for us,” Evans said.
The boys are at home again tomorrow morning when they host the 3-4 Frankfort Panthers. Frankfort, a small school not traditionally good in soccer, is in the midst of resurgence.
“They beat Bourbon and we tied Bourbon, so this year they’re pretty good,” Evans said.
“It’s a tough week for us, playing Harrison, Montgomery and Frankfort.”
