Boys Soccer Sectional Recaps from Monday, October 5

2A-28 Round 1 at Lawrenceburg- Batesville 3, South Dearborn 0

Tied 0-0 at half.

Edited report from Batesville coach Kyle Hunteman: The first half saw both teams struggle to maintain a dominant possession. The half ended without a goal. In the second half, the Bulldogs refocused and brought some energy into the match. The first goal was by Ian Powers who played a through ball to JJ Kuisel who finally found the net. Sebbie Trainor passed the ball to Kuisel scored again off a Sebbie Trainor pass then Trainor, again, found Kuisel on a chip over the defense as Kuisel got his hat trick.   Batesville’s 3-0 win advances the Bulldogs to Wednesday’s 5 pm semifinal against Franklin County.

2A-28 Round 1 at Lawrenceburg- Franklin County 4, Greensburg 3 (OT)

Pirates led 1-0 at half.

Edited report from Franklin County coach Jeff Essen:  Franklin County was down one at halftime in a back and forth battle. Greensburg scored in the second half from about 20 yards away with 15:49 then again with 9:40 to go  to increase their lead to 3-0.

Franklin County did not quit and fought back hard defensively as Levi Sanders, Jayden Taylor, Mason Flannery, Brad Eggleston, Jesse George and Nathen Armbruster did not allow Greensburg to get any easy shots off. Our midfielders (Juan Simancas, Wade Estes, Austin Willis and Evan Gibson) helped the defense as well as our offense (Ayden Patterson, Gabe Frazier, Owen Harvey and Cole Rapp) to keep the ball on the offensive side of the field.

We scored three goals in 3:27. Harvey scored first with 4:47 to go regulation and then Rapp scored at both 2:06 and 1:20 left to tie the game up and force the two overtime halves.

Both teams fought hard in OT with neither team gaining an advantage during the first seven minutes.  But in the second overtime half at 4:37, Rapp added the final score of the game to pull off what some say was an upset victory. No one, and I mean no one out of our 14 players, ever gave up. They played their hearts for the whole 94 minutes.  It was a well-played and well-rounded game.

The Wildcats will play Batesville in the semifinals at Lawrenceburg on Wednesday at 5 pm.

More recaps follow.
