Barren boys edge Monticello

BCHS open Trojan Classic with 2-1 win



Nyekan said part of the team’s execution problems stemmed from “making things too difficult.”

“Once you play simply, the game opens up to you,” Nyekan said.

The pool-play portion of the Trojan Classic will continue Friday with games featuring Monroe County and Warren East, among others.

The boys portion of the Classic is divided into four pools that each consist of three teams, while the girls’ portion is divided into two pools consisting of three teams.

Pool play will conclude Saturday night, leaving Sunday open for the placing games. The boys championship game will be Sunday at 6:30 p.m. The girls will play two hours before.

The Trojans will next meet the third team in their pool, Taylor County, on Saturday at 12:30 p.m.

According to Nyekan, anything outside of a Trojan Classic championship would be considered a disappointment.

“We’re in the tournament to win,” Nyekan said. “Let me just say this: second place is not an option.”
