  • Hawks to make ‘tactical changes’

    The Hawks defeated Hart County Monday, Sept. 9, 5-1.

    LaRue County High School Soccer Coach Derek Bell said the game was played in four, 20-minute quarters due to the heat index. It took some getting used to.

    The Hawks struggled, finally settling into their game, playing the ball on the floor pass and move as they eased past Hart County.

    “From a coaching standpoint it was nice to finally see the players get together and act as a team everyone working for the result that counted.”
