The Jackets suffered a 3-0 loss to Lexington Catholic Thursday, Sept. 13 at Community Stadium. The Jackets rolled out a new look lineup for the game. With senior defenseman Gavin Nicholson injured, junior Brandon Cromwell joined his brother Josh on the back line for the Jackets. "This was the best team we've faced this season," said WCHS Coach Fonyam Atanga. "It wasn't really a 3-0 game on the field. We left a couple of goals out there tonight. We had a tap-in during the first half that we did not execute and had we scored we maybe got some doubt in Catholic's head. Overall I am proud of my guys on the way we battled. In the first half, the Knights had the first real chance on goal in the game but a terrific effort from WCHS goalkeeper Conner Walsh kept the game scoreless. LCHS senior forward Brian Banahan scored midway through the first half to give the Knights a 1-0 lead. A miscommunication between the defense and the keeper allowed the ball to go into the net. The game was physical during the second half. A pair of yellow cards were handed out in the first minute. When play resumed, the Knights scored on a strike from the right side to take a 2-0 lead.
