The 2011 Johnson Central Soccer teams are early in their year but they are more than ready to get this year’s season rolling towards a district title.

 The boys have begun their season with a 3-1-1 start. With 13 seniors leading the boys soccer team, and 5 that have been playing since the first Junior Varsity soccer team began at JCHS, Coach Dwight Chafins believes this season will be strong.

“The season is very promising. We have a lot of talent, and seniors that are extremely dedicated and loyal to the program,” stated Chafins. 

The boys pulled out an impressive win against home opening win against Pikeville with a final score of 9-0. 

Striker Trent Davis led the points with 5 goals. Alex Murray, Connor Murray, John Salyers, and Daniel Williams all followed with 1 goal. 

“We have a strong group of veterans coming back and some young talent stepping up and with all the practice and preparation we put forth, I would expect nothing less than a regional title,” said Trent Davis, the leading scorer in the history of Johnson Central, when asked how he predicts this season will go. 

The boys have also defeated Menifee County 6-0 and Estill County 5-1. Their only loss of the season came at the hands of Boyd County and they tied against Letcher County Central.

Although the girls soccer team started off with 3 losses and 1 win their hopes are still positive for the future. 

After losing 0-3 Pikeville, 2-6 to Menifee County, and 2-4 to Spring Valley, WV, Coach Teri Burford’s squad dominated district rival Sheldon Clark by winning 5-2.

“We have a very young team, but we get better with every game.” Says Coach Burford, who has 7 seniors (Olivia Ellis, Taylor Higgins, Nicole Lemaster, Bailey Windland, Amber Wilcox, Katie Rowland and Hannah Filowat) leading the team this year. “We are hoping to defend our title in October.”
