It was another beautiful night on the Neary Field turf at Lawrenceburg featuring two stellar squads at Dick Meador Stadium who have now won the last four 2A-28 titles between them.  The Tigers and Bulldogs electrified the night with fast-paced, hard-nosed play, fancy footwork and a competitive desire which brought fans to their feet multiple times.

Both defensive lines and keepers were pressured often as Eli Pierson, JJ Kuisel and Ian Powers led the Bulldog attacks while their offensive counterparts, Asher Gentry and Adam Cosby, fueled the Tigers. Batesville keeper Ethan Brewer was up to the challenge as was Tiger goalie Carson Scott Each saw their backline assist with saves and pressures to negate shot opportunities.

At the 23-minute mark, a foul and a minor injury stoppage allowed everyone to catch their breath. When play resumed Dominic Tribbie took the free kick for Lawrenceburg and lofted his shot into the box where teammate Adam Cosby headed the ball home for the first score of the game.  Cosby flicked his header past multiple Bulldog defenders and the keeper with 22:51 showing in the first half.

With just over seven minutes remaining in the first half, Cosby turned and took a laser shot from just over 30 yards out that went into the upper netting to give Lawrenceburg a 2-0 lead.

Three minutes later Batesville connected for its first score when Ian Powers played a crossing shot to JJ Kuisel. Kuisel used a heal flick to direct the ball past the Tiger keeper and defense. The half came to a close with Lawrenceburg leading 2-1.

Story continues.
