Published 6:30 pm Friday, October 4, 2019

Danville plays host to the 45th district boys soccer tournament that kicks off Tuesday, Oct. 8 with a matchup between Lincoln County and Boyle County at 6:00 p.m. The Ads quest for three straight district titles starts after that game ends — tentatively scheduled for 8:00 p.m. — with a match with Garrard County. 

The Admirals and Patriots have been at the top of the 12th region standings all year long, and Lincoln (12-3-4) actually finished atop Danville (11-4-1) in the final standings. But DHS gave LCHS its first loss of the season and the Ads swept the district to earn the top seed. 

Boyle County (10-9-1) has battled through injuries and illness to get above .500 on the year and finish fourth in regional rankings.
