HIGH SCHOOL ROUNDUP: Hornets end up fifth in Bethany Burrier Invitational

Highlander girls’ golf captures Jasper Invite title



• Floyd Central edges East Central: Visiting Floyd Central picked up a narrow win on the road at East Central on Saturday, 2-1.

Henok Jones scored the Highlanders’ first goal in the fourth minute of the match. Teammate Zach Lewis had the assist.

Lewis then scored Floyd Central’s second goal in the 43rd minute off an assist from Sean Brown.

NEXT: Floyd Central hosts Providence, Tuesday.

• Lions stay undefeated with 3-1 win at Lanesville: Rock Creek remained unbeaten with a 3-1 victory on Saturday at Lanesville.

Scoring goals for the Lions were Ronald Karenzi, Immanual Malumba and Will Brown. Rock Creek junior Gedeon Nzombi had an assist on Brown’s score.

“I thought our defense did a great job today of maintaining control of the ball,” Lions’ coach Chris Brown said. “We played well and our defense protected our goalkeeper well, while also providing some opportunities in transition for our offense. I thought Blake Joseph and Dontrez Jessup had solid games today.”

Micah Lane collected the Eagles’ only goal on a penalty kick.

NEXT: Rock Creek (2-0) at Louisville Evangel, Monday.

• Warriors prevail in home opener: Cole Ragland made two goals in the second half to lead Christian Academy to a 3-0 victory over Scottsburg in its home opener on Saturday.

Ragland’s goals came in the 41st and 65th minutes of the match. The Warriors’ first goal happened in the 26th minute by John Park. CAI’s Minho Lee dished out two assists.

Warriors’ coach Wil Lorigan lauded the play of two of his defenders — Trenton Kastensmidt and Ryan Potter — in recording the shutout.

NEXT: Christian Academy (2-1) hosts Austin, Thursday.

• Dragons play to 1-1 tie at South Ripley: Visiting Silver Creek battled South Ripley to a 1-1 tie on Saturday, as both goals were scored on penalty kicks. Caleb Scarbrough booted in the Dragons’ goal in the second half.

Silver Creek coach Colin Bell said a big factor in the match was Dragons’ sweeper Kolton Eddy had to leave the match because of an injury.

“That forced some players to play out of position, which hindered us offensively,” Bell said. “I thought that we controlled more of the possessions and created more opportunities. We just lacked the composure in front of their goal today.”

NEXT: Silver Creek hosts Madison, Tuesday.
