HIGH SCHOOL ROUNDUP: Dragons edge Rock Creek on PK, 3-2

Scarbrough scores hat trick in Silver Creek win

SELLERSBURG — Caleb Scarbrough recorded a hat trick to lead the Silver Creek boys’ soccer team to a 3-2 victory at Rock Creek Academy on Thursday night.

The host Lions went up 1-0 early in the game when junior Will Brown connected on a goal 13 minutes into the contest off an assist by junior Gedeon Nzombi.

Scarbrough tied the game at one in the first half with the first of his three goals off an assist from teammate Gabriel Masso.

The Lions (8-2) took a 2-1 lead at halftime following a goal by sophomore Immanual Malumba at the 24-minute mark. Rock Creek junior Ronald Karenzi recorded the assist.

Seven minutes into the second half, Scarbrough knocked in an unassisted goal to deadlock the contest at two.

Rock Creek nearly went up 3-2 with about eight minutes remaining in regulation when Brown connected on a goal. But the referees nullified the score by calling offsides on the Lions.

Scarbrough’s final goal came with 1:47 left on a penalty kick, as the Dragons (6-3-4) held them off the rest of the way to get the win. Silver Creek senior goalkeeper John Osterhoudt made eight saves.

“It was a phenomenal soccer match between two very good teams,” Lions’ coach Chris Brown said. “Hats off to SC for a tough win.”
