  • SOCCER: Hawks blank Burgin

     After a week-long layoff between games, the LaRue County Hawks were sluggish at the beginning of the Sept. 6 contest with Burgin.

    Bus travel, heat, weather, field conditions  –  good excuses for a weaker team.  But, the Hawks wanted none of that. Frustration was wearing thin on their faces and shoulders. Finally, in the 17th minute, senior Mason Morgan delivered a long throw-in to the waiting feet of fellow senior Alex Cook. Cook was standing near the penalty mark, turned and shot before the ball touched the ground.
