> SOUTHERN INDIANA — The Kentucky Select Soccer League is now in full swing for the spring and it features a number of the area’s teams — some of which have gotten off to great starts.
The KSSL was formed in 1998 when representatives from seven clubs met in January of that year. It has grown from an initial 140 teams to more than 300.
Net-Surfers U-16s kicked off in blazing fashion in the Premier Division with two wins from two games, scoring five goals and conceding none.
Coach Gary Tanner’s charges beat Lexington 2-0 in their first game on April 1, then beat Spencer County Footie Chicks in their first home game on Saturday by a 3-0 scoreline.
They will play Spencer County again this coming Saturday and United 96 at home on Wednesday.
Also going well are Net-Surfers U-14s, who sit atop of Division 1 after winning their first two games.
Elle Kornexl’s girls will take on Storm, which they have already beaten 2-1 last Saturday, before entertaining Bluegrass SC on Sunday.
Net-Surfers U-15s, coached by Marlon Jones, are playing in Division 1 and will take on FC KY White next Saturday before a home game to MUSA flyers on Wednesday.
On the boys’ side, Southern Indiana United U-13 Thunder, coached by Mike Campbell, plays their first games of the season in the Premier Division against Radcliff Revolution on Sunday and LSA ‘99 Central on Wednesday, both away. Revolution has already played five games, winning four.
Southern Indiana United U-12s won their season opener in Division 2, beating United Premier, 3-2. They will entertain Eastern Kentucky this Saturday and Mockingbird Gold next Wednesday.
