The Anderson County boys' soccer team won just one of three against a competitive schedule schedule last week but continued to show some inconsistency as the regular season winds down.

The Bearcats host Danville in the final home match of the season on Thursday night, then travel to highly-regarded Mercer County next Tuesday, Oct. 2, for the regular season finale.

After dropping a 2-0 decision at Somerset on Saturday, the Bearcats stood at 8-8 on the year.

Thursday, Anderson defeated Frankfort High, 5-3 but last Tuesday, Western Hills, ranked 10th in the state, put a 5-1 whipping on the Bearcats.

“That doesn't tell the entire picture of the game,” said Anderson coach Khamisi Campbell. “We were without three starters, but the players gave a great account of themselves. They kept competing and even created several great chances in the second half.”

Campbell said that Western Hills scored only one goal in the second half.

Campbell added that the team is focused on the end of the season and the upcoming tournaments.

“This group is very motivated and a fun bunch to work with,” he said. “The boys are upbeat and looking forward to the upcoming week's games.”

In previously unreported action, the Bearcats defeated a good Montgomery County team, 3-1, in a consolation round game in the Bourbon County Colonel Classic.

“We were without three starters, who were out through injury,” Campbell said. “We played the game with a reshuffled squad and a freshman centre-back who played all 80 minutes. The boys were fantastic meeting the physical and technical demands of the game.”
