The Blue Devils didn’t get on the board until the final three minutes of the match Tuesday night in a non-conference loss to South Point in Lawrence County.
The Pointers (9-1-1) got the ball rolling in the 23rd minute with a goal from Alex Whitt on the assist from Jake Helton. Whitt scored again, this time on the assist from Ryan Khounlavong, in the 49th minute to push the SPHS lead to 2-0.
The Blue Devils (3-6-0) finally got on the board in the 77th minute when sophomore Logan Carpenter found the back of the net off of the Jacob Click assist. GAHS was unable to score again and the Pointers notched their ninth win of the season.
