Whitley County drops 2-1 decision to Pulaski County

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

WHITLEY COUNTY — The Whitley County Colonels came into Tuesday’s match against Pulaski County riding a two-game win streak, but a third straight win was not to be.

The Maroons used a second-half penalty kick to get past Jarrod Earnest's squad, 2-1, after the teams played even in the first half.

Despite the loss, Earnest said he remained confident with his team’s progress and said he’s hopeful that the Colonels can keep moving forward.

“Our guys played well, but this was a physical matchup that was tough to gauge with the officiating we had,” Earnest said. “They really let both teams play physical at times, but then called stuff at other times. It really had our guys confused with the style they needed to play.

“It hurts your team when it’s called like that because you coach them to play one style and then certain officials allow them to play another way and it takes them out of their game,” he added. “I’m proud of the way our kids battled, losing by a penalty kick that was really a questionable call.”

The loss drops the Colonels to 2-5 on the season as they get set to hit the road for a pair of matches against Clinton County on Thursday and Middlesboro on Saturday. Earnest said due to him accepting the head coaching job late, there’s no time to rest for his squad and they have to make a quick turnaround.

“It was kind of a situation where a lot of teams already had their schedules set, so I had to take what I could get in some cases,” Earnest said. “We were able to put together a schedule that I felt like would challenge our kids.

“I think we continue to make improvements and our guys remain positive,” he added.
