Thursday night was a special night at the Owen County soccer field. The Bowling Middle School Soccer team honored a dozen eighth-graders who were playing their final home game.

Ashley Byers, Aly Minch, Andi Wash, Morgan Walker, Kaity Smith, Will Dempsey, Adam Hazlett, Jordan Henderson, James Marston Ben Allen, Austin Collins and Devin Ricketts all were recognized with their parents before the start of the game with Good Shepard.

The Rebels then went out and dropped a 3-1 decision to the visitors.

Owen County controlled the ball most of the game but could not put the ball in the back of the net. Collins scored the Rebels’ only goal of the game on an assist by Dempsey.

The sixth- and seventh-grade team was able to pick up a win. They defeated Good Shepard 2-0 on a pair of goals by Brady Young. Michael Wash had an assist. 

The team traveled to Frankfort Saturday to play in the Capital City Classic. The Rebels defeated Frankfort Middle School in the first round by the score of 5-1. Dempsey had three goals while Collins and Hazlett each had a goal and an assist.

BMS then lost to Elkhorn in the championship game.

Wash, Hazlett and Dempsey were named to the all-tournament team.
