(webcast) 2A-28 Semifinals- Lawrenceburg 7, Rushville 0

Lawrenceburg- A defensive-minded Rushville squad kept ten players near the box to slow the powerful offense of Lawrenceburg. The tactic worked early as it took 15 minutes for the Tiger offense to score their first goal. But after that, Lawrenceburg found their shape en route to a 7-0 defeat of the Lions.

Lawrenceburg dominated possession and pace of play throughout the match but had to find its way against the backline of Rushville. The Lions forced three offsides infractions along with making it difficult for the Tigers to take a clean shot at goal.

LHS junior Asher Gentry opened the scoring as he netted a deflection off the Lions keeper. Seven minutes later, senior Adam Cosby played a well-timed ball into the box that Gentry shot into the net. A third goal was added two minutes later when junior Ryan Moorman scored off an assist from Gentry. The Tigers led 3-0 at halftime.

Rushville moved its backline forward to try and create some offense in the second half, but the Tiger defense only allowed two shots the entire evening.

The Lawrenceburg offense continued to find rhythm as Gentry earned his hat trick just over a minute into the second frame.  Near the midway mark of the half, Moorman added his second goal with an assist by Jason Cosby. Junior Xander Honchell scored a minute later with help from Moorman, then Adam Cosby closed the scoring with ten minutes to play to give Lawrenceburg the 7-0 victory.

Our Southeastern Indiana REMC Power Player of the Game was Asher Gentry of Lawrenceburg. The junior forward had an impressive night with three goals and an assist to lead the Tiger offense.

With the win, the Tigers move to the championship Saturday night to face defending champion Batesville. The Tigers last won the sectional in 2018.
