Boys Soccer

The Grayson County boys soccer team had a solid week on the field picking up a 2-0 road victory over Muhlenberg County Tuesday before holding on to a 3-3 draw versus Hart County, improving to 5-3-1 on the year.

Versus the Mustangs, the Cougars had a complete performance. They scored a goal on each half and allowed Muhlenberg to put out just six shots all game. Malaki Clemons opened the scoring off a corner kick in the first half before a goal by Logan Raymer clinched the victory with Mathew Heycraft providing the assist on both scores.

Tuesday's win marked the Cougars' fourth in a row versus the Mustangs and marked only the second time all year they have held on for a clean sheet.

On Thursday, Grayson returned to its normal high scoring self, putting three past Hart to bring the season total to 37 goals so far through nine games, but the defense was leaky at the back. A late goal by Wyatt Shultz in the 66th minute of play put Grayson up 3-2, but the Cougars couldn't hold on to the game with 14 minutes left.

A late own off a Raiders comer kick in the final five minutes put the game level and didn't leave a chance for Grayson to respond.

The Cougars return to action Monday when they host Todd County Central for a 7 p.m. game.

Girls Soccer

The Lady Cougars' up and down season continued this week, beating Breckinridge County 3-1 Monday before stumbling 4-1 versus Taylor County Tuesday night to negate the good work.

Sitting now at 3-4 in the year, Grayson has yet to lose two games in a row but has also failed to string two wins together. Every step forward so far has been followed up with a letdown. The offense has been there scoring 17 goals in seven games so far, but the defense has allowed three or more goals on four occasions already.

Next up for the Lady Cougars is a game against Breckinridge County next Thursday at 5:30 p.m.

Volleyball

The Lady Cougars are now sitting at 6-3 in the season with a perfect 3-0 record in the district after going 2-1 this week.

They got it all started making quick work of Frederick Fraize (25-5, 25-11) Tuesday, gaining confidence with the overpowering victory. On Wednesday, things came back down to reality with Grayson suffering a straight set defeat (25-16, 25-13, 25-19) to Breckinridge County.

The Lady Cougars rounded out the week snapping right back to form Thursday, dismantling Butler County in straight sets (25-10, 25-15, 25-15).
