The Jones County boys survived a furious second-half charge by Putnam County last Thursday at home to score their first soccer victory under new coach Duane Kitchens, who coached at Putnam the last four years.

Adam Sole scored four goals, three in the first half, to lead the Greyhounds to the 8-7 victory. Luis Massumoto, an exchange student from Brazil who also plays tennis, Caed Brownlee, Wade Carr and Robert Sconyers each had one goal for Jones County, which is now 1-4.

The Greyhounds jumped ahead 4-0 and led 4-1 at halftime, but Putnam made a charge in the second half.

“We’ve got a bunch of guys who really hustle and play hard, but they don’t have much experience,” Kitchens said. “We’re improving, though, and we’ll keep getting better. We’re going to put together a travel team to play in the offseason, and that should help develop more kids with soccer skills.”

In their previous game on Feb. 28, the Greyhounds lost a region game at Northside-Warner Robins 7-2. Sole and Trevor Zukowski scored for Jones County.
