> SOUTHERN INDIANA —
Leonard Kwitonda scored the Jeffersonville boys’ soccer team’s lone goal in the 26th minute of its 1-0 home victory over Fairdale (Ky.) on Monday at Jeff High Field. Teammate Ben Mann had the assist.
The key play of the match for the Red Devils came from their goalkeeper, Luis Arredondo. With about seven minutes left in regulation, Arredondo deflected a Fairdale penalty kick to record a crucial save.
“We didn’t play very well. We got into a little bit of a hurry. It was a chippy game. We fouled quite a bit and it got to us,” Jeff coach Carson Webb said. “But we still won. The guys are working hard and we’re having fun.”
NEXT: Jeff (4-1) at Seymour, next Tuesday.
• Red Devils fall in Mustang Classic final: On Saturday, Jeffersonville suffered a 2-1 loss to host North Oldham (Ky.) in the Mustang Classic final. Trailing 2-0 in the second half, Kwitonda booted in a goal to pull the Red Devils to within one.
“We dominated the second half and missed a few opportunities to tie it up,” Webb said. “But still it was a great job by our team. I’m very proud of our efforts. The purpose of the tournament was to prepare for the postseason and learn from this experience. Our boys were very adamant that second place isn’t good enough, so good for them.”
It was the Devils’ first loss after a 3-0 start.
• Dragons upend Salem: Charlotte Seaton fired a 43 to win medalist honors and lead Silver Creek past Mid-Southern Conference foe Salem on Monday at Hidden Creek Golf Club’s Links Nine course, 183-199.
Rounding out the scoring for the Dragons were Lily Smith and Liv Schmidt each with a 45 and Emily Christman with a 50.
“We’re happy with the win because Salem is one of the top teams in the conference,” Silver Creek coach Joe Ledbetter said. “We know they are better than 199. We’re still working on all four getting into the low 40s. If we can do that, I think we can win conference.”
