Rising Sun 1, Southwestern 1; Shiners win ORVC by 1

Hanover- The two teams at the top of the ORVC boys’ soccer standings, Rising Sun and Southwestern, met Friday night in Hanover for a winner-take-all conference championship.  Except neither team won.  The 80-minute match between Rising Sun and Southwestern ended in a 1-1 tie.

By virtue of the conference point system (3 points for a win and 1 point for a tie), the Shiners (8-2-2 ORVC) maintained their one-point advantage over the Rebels (7-1-4 ORVC) and won the ORVC title 26-25.  Jac-Cen-Del (8-3-1 ORVC) won its final conference match over South Ripley Friday and earned three points to finish in a second-place tie with Southwestern at 25 points.

Rising Sun’s Landon Cole scored with 26:43 in the first half with a shot inside of the left post from above the 18-yard-box.

Southwestern’s Adam Anderson ripped two hard, mid-distance direct kicks but both were secured by Rising Sun keeper Jordan Parsons.

The Shiners had two other great chances to score, an open look at 11:20 and a 1-on-1 at 10:55, but nether found the net.

At the half, Southwestern had a 7-6 edge in shots, including 3-2 on goal, but Rising Sun led 1-0.

The Shiners came out very aggressive in the second half.  With 35:30 showing, Southwestern keeper Mitchell Cline made an incredible tip save over the crossbar to keep the difference at one goal.  RS had another 1-on-1 chance missed at 24:45.

The Rebels never took their first corner kick until 21:40 in the second half and ended with three.  Rising Sun had eight corners including six in the second half.

The game nearly moved to 2-0 when Southwestern almost put in an own goal at 13:20.  The deflected ball by a Rebel defender just missed going in.

Past the mid point of the second stanza, Southwestern changed keepers and moved the very tall and athletic Mitchell Cline to the front line.  With 9:30 remaining, Cline elevated above the crowd on an incoming corner kick and made a great attempt at a header, but the shot sailed high.

With Rising Sun taking more of a defensive posture, Southwestern continued to get more shot opportunities.  While the Rebels missed wide on a runner at 4:20, Southwestern finally cashed in with 1:40 to go.  Caleb Ream made a nice pass forward to Cline who took the ball in stride beyond the back line of the RS defense and scored the tying goal.

Story continues.
