The Madison Southern boys and girls soccer teams fought hard on the road Monday, but could not overcome first-half deficits.

The Eagles tied 2-2 with the Redhounds in Corbin, while the Lady Eagles fell to Lexington Catholic, 6-1

Corbin (4-0-1) struck first with an early goal off a corner kick. Southern (1-4-1) could not find the net for the remainder of the first half, but rallied in the opening minutes of the second.

Alex Echevarria scored in the first 10 minutes of the second half to tie the game up.

Minutes later, Francisco Aguilar snuck one past Corbin's keeper off an assist from Jase Duerson to give Southern a 2-1 lead.

The Eagles maintained that advantage until mid-way through the second half when the Redhounds struck back, scoring another goal of a corner to make it 2-2.

The Lady Eagles had some poor luck in a rain-soaked battle against the Lady Knights.

"The ball was super slippery in the rain and a few just slipped by that normally would not have. At the same time, Lexington Catholic has a solid program," Southern coach Katy Cress said.

Southern (2-1-1) defended fiercely in the first half, but the Lady Knights (4-1) managed to score with just two seconds left on the clock.

Buoyed by the goal, LexCath scored twice in the first five minutes of the second half to take a 3-0 lead.

Abby Sheffer came through minutes later for Southern and found the back of the net off an assist from Katilyn Stanton.

Undaunted, the Lady Knights continued to battle and slipped another goal past the Lady Eagle goalie.

LexCath then took advantage of a hand ball in the box which resulted in another goal on a penalty kick to seal the victory.

Both Southern teams will take on district rivals Model Laboratory in a doubleheader in Berea on Thursday.
