The Hazard Bulldog boys’ soccer team opened the 53rd district tournament with the Letcher Central Cougars. The game would be extremely competitive throughout with Letcher Central getting the better of the bounces, and the Bulldogs 4-2.

The contest would be a back-and-forth struggle, with Letcher Central staying one step ahead of Hazard. The Cougars would take the early lead, only to see Zach Fleming make a run through the defense to put a goal on the board for the Bulldogs.

Letcher Central continued to lead in the second half, and looked to have the game in the bag. However, a Cougar foul allowed the Bulldogs a penalty kick. Cameron Johnson would make good on the attempt, and give Hazard new life.

Unfortunately, the Bulldogs ran out of steam and time. The Cougars advanced to the championship game with the 4-2 win.
