  • Oldham too much for Shelby

    Shelby County got down early and couldn't recover in a 3-0 loss to Oldham County in the 8th Region Championship at Oldham County on Wednesday.

    Oldham's Jacob Kemper took a pass from Shawn Parker and lofted a shot over SCHS keeper David Breen and into the side net for a 1-0 lead less than 40 seconds into the first half, forcing the Rockets to play from behind all night.

    "We just weren't sharp coming out of the gate," SCHS Coach B.J. Andriot said. "You can't give him [Kemper] a look from anywhere, because he'll take it."
