  • Soccer Hawks pluck Eagles

    On Sept. 1, the LaRue County Hawks boys' soccer team came out sluggish against the Eagles from Campbellsville, but the boys escaped with a 4-0 blanking at home. 

    Five minutes into the match, Dylan White rocketed his shot into the corner netting with the assist to fellow junior Dillon Walker. The junior attackers were unlucky as they traded passes and shots throughout the first half. The Hawks outshot the Eagles 11-2, in the half, but earned only a 1-0 lead.  Intensity picked up in the second half as the offense pelted the opponents’ goal mouth 12 times.
