    “That was the most fun, greatest game I’ve seen them play all year,” SCHS coach Kristen Kapp said. “I mean, they fought the entire time. They wanted it, and I told them in the locker room that it’s not the fairy tale ending unfortunately, but they shouldn’t be upset with themselves.”

    “Obviously a tough loss ended our season,” Collins coach Jamil Shalash said. “Oldham County is a very good team. We had a good bit of control, we just couldn’t get it in the net.”

    Early in the contest, the Titans did a good job of dictating the pace at which the game moved, notching four shots on goal and limiting the Pioneers offense.

    The Titans surged out to a 3-0 lead over the Panthers, thanks to goals from Arturo Reyes-Avila, Kevin Lanham, and Wilber Cabrera.
