DAWSON SPRINGS — The Dawson Springs boys' soccer team scored in the opening minutes of Tuesday's home game against against Hopkins County Central and never looked back for a 3-1 victory.
The victory snapped a five-game winless streak for the Panthers, who are now 3-5-1. The Storm (1-7-1) dropped their second straight but will get a chance at revenge Monday when they host Dawson Springs.
"I think our guys realized tonight that they can't come out flat," Central coach Ben Lutz said. "We need to come out aggressive for 80 minutes and can't let the game come to us. We have to take it to our opponents. We did that against North and played well, but we let Dawson win more balls in the air tonight. They wanted it more."
Dawson Springs was ahead 2-0 at halftime and stretched its lead to 3-0 in the second half before Central's Hunter Benson got the Storm on the board with 20 minutes left on a corner kick from Issac Evans.
