Keltner's five goals lead Colonels to win

MIDDLESBORO — The Whitley County Colonels took advantage of five goals from Hunter Keltner as they picked up the 8-4 win over the Middlesboro Yellow Jackets on the road Saturday.

The win was the second straight for Whitley County and the fourth in five games after starting the season with four straight losses.

Colonels’ coach Jarrod Earnest said he was pleased with the win, but was cautious when talking about the improvements his team needs to continue to make every time out on the field.

“I had never played against Middlesboro and they seemed to have some players that were very good, but we possessed the ball very well, especially in the middle,” Earnest said. “We had opportunities here and there and our guys did all the things that we’ve been working on in practice like dropping the ball back and finding the open man.

“Our offense was working pretty quickly and they were holding an offsides trap pretty well,” he added. “We were called for offside a few times, but we got things going and were able to score some goals.”

The Colonels led 3-1 at halftime thanks to goals by Cody Swafford, Jordan Brooks and Keltner.

Austin Cox got things started for Whitley County in the second half, but it was all Keltner from that point as he tallied the final four goals of the match for the Colonels.

Whitley County will be back in action Tuesday at 6 p.m. when it hosts Middlesboro for the second part of a home and home series between the two.
