Oldenburg coach Kenny Getz: OA traveled to Greensburg for our first away game of the year. Weather was perfect with the temps around 80.  It was a good offensive showing with 44 shots and 9 corners but disappointing with only 5 goals.  I believe in high school you should convert closer to 20 percent of your shots.  We fell way short of that mark.

Defensively we were not challenged very much but when we were, we did a good job of clearing the ball and finding a teammate.

Hoff started his first varsity game and came up big early getting our first goal then assisting on our second one. Henry Kraus had a hat trick.  We had 5 goals with 4 by our outside wings and the other by our offensive midfielder. The assists came from 2 outside wings, 1 from outside fullback and 2 from my midfield.  With our formation, the scoring and assists should come from our outside wings and fullbacks.  We had this tonight. We are starting to get it, I hope. We are now 2-1-1.

Greensburg coach Cody DeVolld: Greensburg played Oldenburg for the Pirates last home game for the next two weeks and lost 5-0. In its second straight, primarily defensive game, Greensburg showed more intensity and energy than against Southwestern despite the 5 goals allowed. Oldenburg got less shots on goal against the Pirates than Southwestern did.  The Pirates did their best to make it as uncomfortable as possible for Oldenburg to get clean shots on goal.

Junior Jimmie Day recorded 11 saves while shots came from Grayson Newhart, Luke Hellmich and Bryant Menkedick. The Pirates were without their senior captain, Collin Springmeyer.

We thank coaches Getz and DeVolld for the match info.
