JANUARY 11, 2016
Lawrence County Soccer Coach Heath Webb was asked by nineteen of his high school players to keep them together this winter to make them stronger for not only the upcoming high school soccer season, but for college soccer for a few seniors.
Together with Assistant Coach Brooke Maynard, Coach Heath took two teams, LC Red & LC White to the University of Pikeville for the first annual indoor soccer UPike Futsal Tournament on Saturday, January 9th. The tournament consisted of two brackets, made up of local area high school teams.
Bracket A was Sheldon Clark, Prestonsbrug and LC White, while Bracket B was Belfry, LC Red and a combined team made up of players from Johnson Central, Paintsville and Russell called the Bear Cats.
LC Red began their day with a 5-2 win over Belfry, but suffered a 3-2 loss against the Bear Cats. LC White started with the day’s only shutout, a 4-0 win over Prestonsburg, followed by a 12-2 win over Sheldon Clark. LC White entered the playoff round in first place, followed by the Bear Cats in second. LC Red entered playoffs tied with Prestonsburg for third place, but lost 4-2 placing them 4th overall.
During the championship game, LC White played tough holding the Bear Cats to only 3 goals scored and 2 additional shots taken verses their own 1 goal scored and 15 additional shots taken. It was truly a great day for area soccer fans.
Congratulations to all the teams!
