Hot Dogs top Lebanon in key conference match


The score stayed that way until there were nine minutes left in the match. A goal kick by Gus Montes bounced all the way through Lebanon’s defense and was chased down by Giebel, who didn’t miss on his 1-on-1 with goalkeeper Jonas Gustavson for a 4-0 lead.

Just four minutes later, Giebel would again draw a penalty, going left again with the PK to catch Gustavson wrong-footed for a 5-0 advantage.

Lebanon supporters claimed that Giebel flopped on both instances, but Giebel didn’t see it that way.

“I’m just beating the guys down the flank and I try to cut back and their leg is out,” Giebel said. “If their leg’s out, it’s a foul.”

It’s the third-straight year Frankfort has defeated Lebanon.

“It’s very nice to beat Lebanon,” Giebel said. “It’s sweet. It leaves a sweet taste in your mouth.”

Lebanon (6-3-1) did salvage a goal four minutes from time, when Will Mock used his left foot to knock home a free kick from about 25 yards out and to the right of the box. Mock went far post and put the shot past a diving Montes.

Lebanon registered nine total shots, and Gustavson was credited for 10 saves.

“It was just a poor first half on our part,” Tucker said. “We’re under the gun 3-nil down and we can’t play the same way in the second half. They’re the better team, but I don’t know about 5-1.

“We’ve been talking to the guys for weeks to put shots on goal. If you don’t put shots on goal you can’t score – make the keeper make a save. I don’t know how many shots on goal we had, but it wasn’t a whole lot. We sprayed them all over the place.”
