Zach Brown and Ramon Rios each had a goal and an assist to lead the Shelby County boys’ soccer team to a 3-1 victory over visiting Bullitt East on Tuesday night at the Shelby County Athletic Complex.


Ethan Patterson had the other goal for the Rockets, who outscored the Chargers, 2-0, in the second half.

“I was extremely proud of my seniors [Brown, Stuart Orange, Gage Hall, Danny Casia and Brian Strachan] as they all showed leadership before, during and after the game,” Shelby County Coach Tony Wood said. “While we have a lot of extremely young talent, our success depends on our senior leadership.

“In regards to game play, it was a typical game for us in that we possessed the ball about seventy percent of the time and played a very aggressive game. The difference in this game from others was that the entire team listened and communicated the entire game. This kept us from making the normal three to four mental errors throughout the game and therefore kept the other team from being able to capitalize on those errors.”

The Rockets (4-7), who hosted Whitefield Academy on Thursday night, host 19th-ranked South Oldham on Tuesday before facing 30th District foe Spencer County next Thursday.
