The only real winner in the Male High School Bulldog Cup this year was Mother Nature.

The Rockets played just one of what likely would have been a three- or four- game run for Shelby County.

SCHS tied Kentucky Country Day, 0-0, Saturday but needed a three-goal victory to advance to a makeshift title game.

SCHS Coach B.J. Andriot said his again dominated but again couldn’t win. The Rockets are now 6-3-5 on the season.

“Their keeper made some amazing saves, but they weren’t even trying to score,” Andriot said. “They were just packed back playing defense.

“It’s getting a little frustrating to dominate games but have trouble scoring and getting wins.”

The Rockets have just two losses in the past 12 games, but have just six victories to show for it.

“The good thing is we’re not getting scored on; we just need to find a way to get the ball in the net,” Andriot said. “We’re creating opportunities. We just can’t put them away. You have to figure the goals will start coming.”

The Rockets have just two regular-season games left, a district match-up at North Oldham Thursday and a home game against Atherton on Tuesday.
