Both Owen County soccer teams entered their respective district tournaments knowing the road was going to be tough.

The Lady Rebels opened up play in the 25th District Tournament Oct. 12 in Frankfort against Franklin County. Owen County played hard but in the end they lost 6-0 to finish the season.

Owen County Girls Soccer Coach Mike Haines said he was proud of his team and the effort they gave all season. The team will have everyone back next season due to the fact that the roster did not contain a single senior.

The boys were the hosts for the 25th district tournament.

The Rebels first-round opponent Oct. 12 was Anderson County.

The Bearcats picked up a pair of goals in the first half.

Anderson County tacked on four more goals in the second half to hand the Rebels a 6-0 defeat.

Owen County Boys Soccer Coach Jerry Doolin will have to replace two seniors on next year’s roster with the departure of Blake Lewis and Justin Davis.

Davis was named to the all-tournament team.
