The Jennings County High School boys soccer team went 1-1 over the past week, moving their season record to 5-2.
Last Thursday, the Panthers played host to conference rival Floyd Central. Jennings County got on the board early, with a goal from Kai Henneke. The Panthers led through the half, and most of the second half, but two late goals from Floyd Central sent the Highlanders back down south with the win.
On Saturday, Jennings County hosted Silver Creek. The boys in blue were back on the pitch, this time in a new shade of blue. The Panthers unveiled a new navy kit with navy and white sleeve and color trim, white numbers, and the Jennings County Men’s Soccer crest on left chest. For the Panther faithful, the new uniforms were just as sharp as the play on the pitch. Scoring for the Panthers began after 10 minutes, when senior Ethan Brown recorded a goal. After another 10 minutes of play, senior Logan McIntosh found the back of the goal, and increased the lead to 2-0. After that, it became the Carson McNulty show. Over the course of five minutes of play, McNulty recorded a hat trick, scoring three goals from the 28 minute mark to the 33 minute mark. Jennings County went into the half up 5-0. McNulty was not done, however, as he would score one more goal in the second half, bringing the game to its final score of 6-0.
The Boys in Blue will be back in action tonight, September 9, at Bedford North Lawrence. The match is set to begin at 5:30 p.m. The boys will be back at home on Saturday, hosting Jeffersonville at noon.
