Whitley County picks up 3-0 win over O.B.I.

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

WHITLEY COUNTY — The Whitley County Colonel soccer team is getting healthy at the right time and it’s paying big dividends.

Bosko Cupac’s squad captured their third win in a row by coming from behind to defeat Oneida Baptist Tuesday, 4-2.

“We have finally got everyone back and it’s really paying off for us,” Cupac said. “Even thought we fell behind, we did not quit and that is what we have been telling them.”

Oneida Baptist jumped out to a 1-0 lead during the 21st minute thanks to a goal from Michael Negussie, but it didn’t take long for Whitley County to respond, as Dakota Nantz’s goal two minutes later tied things up at one apiece — and that’s when things got interesting.

Mountaineer coach Scott Self wasn’t pleased with what he had seen with his starters and replaced him with his subs.

It didn’t take Whitley County (4-5-1) long to take advantage of the situation, as the Colonels scored two goals with less than two minutes remaining in the first half to take a commanding 3-1 lead.

“As a coach, I treated their substitutions the same, but I believe a spark went off in my players’ heads and they got hungrier,” Cupac said. “We were able to score the two goals late and those were important. We are playing very good soccer right now.”

Whitley County put the game out of reach at the 53rd minute after a header by Hunter Keltner reached the back of the net.

“We did not quit tonight,” Cupac said. “We are a young team and all of the pieces are starting to come together to complete the puzzle.

“We are capitalizing on team’s mistakes and that is a sign of a good team,” he added. “I told the players to not quit and play through the game and they are doing that.”

The Colonels will be back in action Thursday on the road against Middlesboro.
