The Patriots helped their long-time coach reach a special milestone with a win over a state powerhouse on Monday in Lexington.

Christopher Tioukalov scored a goal as Model Laboratory beat Lexington Catholic, 1-0.

The win was the 300th for long-time coach Steve Savage.

Model has won seventh-straight games.

Savage is just the seventh high school boys soccer coach to reach the 300-victory mark.

The coach announced last spring that this season — his 27th at the school — would be his last.

Keshav Bhandari had the only assist in the win over Lexington Catholic and Zach Long earned the shutout in goal.

Julia Luxon scored early on an assist from Payton Sparks and Presley Lochmueller added a goal just a few minutes later.

Becky Otieno also found the net.

McKenna Tuttle earned the shutout in goal.

The Lady Patriots are set to wrap up the regular season Thursday at Corbin.
