The Creek dried up.

The boys’ varsity team beat Fern Creek for the first time in school history Thursday, Sept. 26.

The varsity boys played on Tuesday night in Bardstown against Bardstown. Pre-game, Coach Brangers said to prepare for this game they have not done many things differently at practice, but have been working on a few things that they have struggled with such as scoring and playing together defensively. These things definitely came into play during the match because it was quite the battle with the end score being 1-1. Senior Blake Dattilo scored the shot that counted and Xavier Glauber scored once more, but was called offsides. 

 “The team overall played very well, there were a lot of ups and downs to the game but we stayed locked in and was ready for anything,” said senior, Noah Pressley. “ Well, the last 20 seconds went by fast. As a defender, you have one job and that’s to stop the offense. I had their best player on lock the entire game. I felt like I played the best game I have played in a while. Then they got a throw-in and it was close to our box with only a few seconds left it took an awkward bounce and before I knew it the player was behind me. 7 seconds left and this player is a top goal scorer in the state. I knew if I didn’t stop him he would score and we would lose. So I did the most logical thing and held him back so he couldn’t get the back, which is a straight red. I understand what I did and I know my actions have consequences. But at the time it was the right play because it kept the undefeated season alive. But after thinking about the games I miss I feel like I left my team on the field and only thought for myself. We have a big game tonight against fern creek and I believe in my team. I know they can win and I’ll be there supporting them.” As Pressley said, he received a red card with only 7 seconds to go. Because of the red, he had to sit out the game on Thursday, Sept. 26 and he will also have to sit out the game next Thursday, Oct. 3. Unfortunately, this is the senior night game against LaRue County. 

On Thursday night both varsity and JV played against Fern Creek. Both teams won and for varsity, it was their first time ever beating the Creek. Senior Zak Perdew who made both shots stated, “I’m feeling pretty tired and sore right now. But I’m excited for our team, we’ve waited a long time for that moment so I’m glad that I contributed to it.” In the last minute of the game, the Creek’s defense was really pressing on the offense. “I really thought they were gonna tie it up. But Garret Anderson and Devon Newton made some big plays that kept us on top,” said Perdew. The end score was 2-1, East. 

The boys’ next game is Oct. 3, against LaRue Co. Varsity play at 5:30 p.m., JV following at 7. This is the boys’ senior night.
