(VAR) Shelbyville Invitational

Batesville 2, Knightstown 1
BA 1-0 at half.

Edited Batesville recap from coach Kyle Hunteman: The Bulldogs traveled to compete in the Shelbyville invitational. Our first match around noon was against Knightstown. Within the first half, Batesville managed to take the lead when Ethan Goodin took a shot that was deflected into the net for an own goal by the Panthers.

In the second half, Knightstown answered back with a goal where the ball was passed up into the box and scored from a defensive mistake. But the Bulldogs Grant Peters received the ball from a corner kick and his shot bounced off the crossbar back to him for a lofted header into the net to win the game.

Title- Shelbyville 1, Batesville 1 (SH 5-4 PKs)
Tied 0-0 at half.

Edited Batesville recap from coach Hunteman: The championship match took place against Shelbyville at 7 pm. About 30 minutes into the action, lightning struck nearby and delayed play. Both teams later returned to the field to finish out the half without achieving a goal on the scoreboard.

The second half picked up as the Bulldogs fought the Golden Bears for possession. Shelbyville finally found their opportunity when the ball was sent down the wing and crossed into the box for a header on goal. Shortly after Batesville took a corner which was fumbled around the box, Azmi Destriantoro finished to goal to tie the match. The field play ended 1-1 before heading into a penalty shootout. Shelbyville took the win, 5-4, in PKs.
