Prep Boys Soccer

Tell City 4, Forest Park 3: The Rangers were playing without their starting goalie but still nearly pulled off a win over their Pocket Athletic Conference foes.

Tell City raced out to an early 2-0 lead in the first four minutes of the match, including an opening goal in the first 10 seconds.

The Rangers bounced back and forced a tie at 2-2 and again at 3-all before the Marksmen netted the final tally late in the second half.

J.D. Kerber, Tyler Berger and Zach Hopf all scored for Forest Park.

“We dominated possession for most of the game, but the two early mistakes to start the game proved to be too much to overcome,” Rangers coach Mike Forester said.

Floyd Central 1, Jasper 0: The Highlanders scored in the 17’ and made the score hold up.

According to Wildcats coach Kyle Kendall, Jasper created opportunities to draw even in the second half but could not find the back of the net.

“We made some adjustments in the second half which allowed some added possessions, but we just could not break through with the equalizer,” the Jasper coach stated. “I thought our defense did a nice job of keeping us in the game.”
