A beautiful night on the Neary Field turf at Lawrenceburg’s Dick Meador Stadium opened Wednesday’s semifinals. Junior Ian Powers started the scoring for Batesville four minutes into the match when he netted a ball off an assist from senior J.J. Kuisel.  Thirteen minutes later, Powers returned the favor to Kuisel for the second goal of the first half.  And within the same minute, it was Kuisel to Powers again for a 3-0 Bulldog lead.

The offensive attack did not let up as sophomore Willy Sherwood scored at the midway point of the first half.  It was an acrobatic play by Sherwood as he nearly fell to the turf while turning the corner off the defender but kept his balance for the score.

Powers added another goal, earning the hat trick, and Kuisel picked up his second assist. In the final minute of the first half, Kuisel recored his second goal as Batesville cruised to a 6-0 halftime lead.

In the second half, Franklin County tried to get its offense going but were met by a tough Batesville defensive line. On the night, the Wildcats only attempted five shots with just two on goal. The Bulldogs attempted 43 shots and 30 were on frame. Kent Meyers provided the only second-half score as the senior Bulldog found the back of the net 11 minutes into the half. A solid night of play propelled Batesville to the 7-0 win and a date with Lawrenceburg in the 2A-18 finals.

Our Southeastern Indiana REMC Power Player of the Game was Ian Powers of Batesville. The junior was on the attack all night recording a hat-trick along with two assists to help lead the Bulldogs to victory.
