LEXINGTON COUNTY-KERSHAW U18 teammates Riley Kohn, Lucas Goal, Wil Alderman, and Ryan Dixon congratulate Cody Davis on his goal in Saturday’s win over BCS Arsenal.

The Lexington County-Kershaw U18 and U16 boys’ soccer teams traveled to Lexington on Saturday in what was the first game of the season for Coach Aron Taylor and Coach Josh Witt’s U18 boys’ team. And the local entry started off with a 5-2 win against BCS Arsenal.
The U18’s solid defense of Alex Ruffalo, Riley Kohn, Joseph Sheheen, CJ Jordan and goalkeeper Richard White, proved to be a factor in the win. Under the leadership of captains and midfielders Jerry Jones and Wil Alderman, they were able to start off the game with an early lead through Kyle Miller’s half-volley to the upper 90, with an assist from captain Deuce Brown. Not long after that goal, Brown followed up with a driven shot to make the score 2-0.  
An own-goal and a long shot from BCS tied the game at 2-2 at half time. 
During the second half, the local entry came back with three unanswered goals.
Miller landed another perfect upper 90 goal for the U18 to take the lead. Brown followed up with a fourth goal. After landing a near perfect corner kick, Cody Davis followed up with a dipping, swerving volley from more than 30 yards out to bring the final score to 5-2. 
The U16 team also played on Saturday against South Carolina Select U16 team. 
Captains Ryan Timmons, Jack Crayne and Brandon Bowers led the relatively new team onto the field against the more seasoned team of SC Select.  Although the team made good spot on passes and worked the ball up the field, they were unable to break through the defense for a goal. Goalkeeper Patrick Sigman made some outstanding saves, but the team suffered a loss of 8-0.
On Sunday, the U16 team traveled to Sumter to face FSA Fusion out of Florence. The Lexington-Kershaw squad started out aggressive, with quick passes and a lot of ball movement on the field.  After what Lexington-Kershaw felt were some questionable calls, it was FSA Fusion walking off with a 7-0 victory.
