Boys Soccer Semi-State 8: Greenup County's run ends

PIKEVILLE — Both Pikeville and Greenup County boys soccer teams were in uncharted waters on Tuesday night in the Semi-State 8 matchup.

Both schools won their first-ever soccer region titles last week and were playing at State for the first time. For Pikeville, the historical run continues, and for Greenup County, its stunning run ended. The Panthers topped Greenup County, 3-1, at Pikeville High School.

The outcome of the game was never really in doubt as Pikeville raced out to a 3-0 halftime advantage.

The first goal of the game came in the 20th minute as Richmond McAnallen drained a shot to give Pikeville a 1-0 advantage.

Pikeville senior Ethan Rowe put the Panthers ahead 2-0 with a goal in the 32nd minute.

The Panthers didn’t let their foot off the gas, scoring a goal just two minutes later to take a 3-0 lead. The third goal came off the foot of Carew Bartley. Bartley’s initial shot was blocked, but Bartley kicked the deflection through for Pikeville’s final goal.

The Panthers played keep-away in the second half, trying to protect their three-goal lead.

Greenup County got on the board late in the game. During the first minute of stoppage time, Wade Reed scored to make the final score 3-1.

Pikeville finished with 22 shots on goal to 19 by Greenup County.

Pikeville goalkeeper Luke Wheat finished with 13 saves. Musketeer goalie Will McCall finished with 10 saves in the losing effort.

Pikeville (14-3-1) advances to the round of eight which will be played on Saturday at Lexington Henry Clay. The Panthers are scheduled to play at 3 p.m. against Henderson County, the 2nd Region champion.

Greenup County finished the season with a 10-9-2 record and the 16th Region championship.
