Pulaski County regroups to take out Bulldogs

Somerset — The Clinton County boy’s soccer team may have limped into PC Field on Monday afternoon with a sub-.500 mark on the season, but the Bulldogs gave Casey Inabnitt and crew all they wanted and then some early on.

However, after Inabnitt got after and challenged his club, the Maroons responded and walked away with a hard-fought 4-1 victory over Clinton County, improving to 5-2 on the season.

“I thought Clinton County came out today and was ready to play,” stated Inabnitt, after his club’s victory.

“I thought we were a little sluggish toward the end of the first half, and our guys just looked like they had been out all weekend – because they weren’t really focused or ready to go,” continued the PC coach. “I thought after we scored those two goals early, we let off the gas a little bit.”

Kaleb Rowe’s goal at the midway point of the opening half of play gave PC a 1-0 lead. Later in the opening frame, Chandler Hutchinson’s goal gave the Maroons a 2-0 advantage, but Chris Cox’ score cut that lead in half, as his tally trimmed the deficit to 2-1 with just over nine minutes remaining before the intermission.

PC took that 2-1 lead into the half, and in the second half, these two clubs played it close to the vest, with neither team gaining an advantage despite scoring opportunities on both sides.

Finally, PC broke this game open with a pair of goals just seconds apart.

Jose Delgado was fouled inside the box, and his penalty kick with just over 16 minutes left on the clock padded the PC advantage to 3-1.

But, the Maroons were far from done.

Just seconds later, Andrew Hunt scored on a nifty move on the Clinton County keeper, giving the Maroons their final margin of victory at 4-1.

“I told the guys that they’ve got to be like sharks in the water, and when they smell blood they’ve got to capitalize,” said Inabnitt.

“Against Danville, we weren’t able to do that and it cost us the game,” added the PC coach. “Tonight, fortunately we were able to score a few goals to dig ourselves out and win the game.”

The Maroons will return to action tomorrow evening at home, as Pulaski County will host Southwestern in a boy-girl doubleheader beginning at 6 p.m.
