The 2017 Varsity Soccer Rocks won their Saturday afternoon home clash 2-0 against Male Traditional High School, improving their record to 3-0. The Soccer Rocks scored seven minutes into the match when left back Nolan Durbin snuck through the Male defense in clandestine fashion to slam home a Brandon McManus dish from close range. The Soccer Rocks were unable to strike gold again until very late in the game when Brandon McManus found Noah Murr with a diagonal pass behind the Male defense who slotted home the final tally of the evening. The Soccer Rocks must rest up for this coming week as they play Lexington Catholic (away on Tuesday), Atherton (home on Thursday) and then Ft. Thomas Highlands (home on Saturday). Come on out and join in the fun supporting your Soccer Rocks. Go Rocks! Take State!
