Whitley blanked by Madison Southern

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons

The Whitley County Colonels were without head coach Bosco Cupac during Monday's match against visiting Madison Southern and assistant coach Jeremy Lake said Cupac's absence may have played a role in the 8-0 loss to Madison Southern.

Whitley County fell behind early in the match, but Lake said he felt like the early goals were the result of misfortune on his team's part.

"We played really good in the first half and I feel like the goals they scored were just bad luck on our part," he said. "They could have gone either way, but we just couldn't get the breaks is what it came down to."

After giving up the three goals in the first half, Lake said he felt like the Colonels were ready to make a run after halftime, but the exact opposite happened.

"We just fell apart defensively in the second half and that's just not like our team," he said. "Typically, we are a second half team and we're usually able to make a run or at least score a few goals, but we couldn't do anything today.

"Madison Southern is a very technical team and they do a lot of things well and it showed tonight," he added. "We really wanted to get a win for coach Cupac since he wasn't here and I think our mindset was right, we just fell apart in that second half."

Cupac's absence was due to a red card in a previous match. KHSAA rules require a coach to sit out a match if he receives a red card.

Next up for the Colonels is a match-up against South Laurel on Thursday. Lake said Whitley County will be ready for the match despite Monday's loss.

"This South Laurel match is a good rivalry match for us and we've been working toward getting better so we can compete with teams like them," Lake said. "Our kids have to get it in their head that they have got to play hard from the first whistle to the last whistle.

"You can't afford to have any letdowns at any point in a match, especially against a team like South Laurel," he added. "They are a solid team and they will play us tough, but we've had some chances to play with them in the past games."

Thursday's match is scheduled to start at 5:45 p.m. at Whitley County.

    The word hero is used a little too loosely for my taste these days.
    To be honest, it’s been used way too much for a long time and I’m just as guilty as the next guy.
