ASHLAND, Ky. — The South Point Pointers didn’t have time to feel bad after losing their first soccer game of the season.

The Pointers lost 3-2 at Boyd County on Thursday, but bounced back with a 2-1 win at Ashland on Monday.

“We didn’t play well against Boyd County. We played better against Ashland,” said Pointers’ coach Zane Joy.

Niklas Trapphagen scored two first half goals as Boyd County took a 2-0 lead and Jordan Smith’s unassisted goal put the Lions’ lead at 3-0.

Matt Krivan and Trey Kearns got unassisted goals for the Pointers to make it 3-2.

Brady Rickard had 10 saves for South Point.

In the win over Ashland, the Pointers broke a scoreless tie early in the second half on an unassisted goal by Jake Helton.

Kearns then got an assist from Matt Krivan five minutes later for a 2-0 lead.

John Pina’s penalty kick was Ashland’s only goal.

Rickard had six saves.

South Point plays at Chesapeake on Tuesday with the girls’ game at 6 p.m. and the boys at 8 p.m.
