  • Boys soccer: Colonels take first county match

    BUCKNER – Oldham County’s Shane Davis hadn’t scored a varsity goal going into the Colonels’ home match with North Oldham Tuesday.

    The OC freshman picked couldn’t have picked a better time for his first, scoring the go-ahead goal in a 3-2 Colonel win.

    No. 20 OC (5-1-1) is now 1-0 in District 29 play and will clinch the No. 1 district seed if it beats South Oldham Sept. 16 in Crestwood.

    “There’s no better feeling right now,” senior OC goalkeeper Adam Curry said.

    North (1-1) tallied 214 rushing yards but got just 12 yards through the air. The Class 2A No. 4 Centurions (3-0) out-gained the Mustangs 234-226.

    With OC and North both in the preseason top 15 and South getting better, South coach Amy Grimm expects that District 29 dominance to continue in 2014.
