Boys Soccer Recaps from Tuesday, September 7

There may be updates, so please check back.

(VAR) Batesville 1, Shelbyville 0
Tied 0-0 at half

Edited Batesville recap from coach Kyle Hunteman:Batesville competed against Shelbyville. This was the second round with the Golden Bears after their invitational.  The game was fast and physical, but both teams defensively held up keeping the scoring low. By halftime, neither team had touched the scoreboard.

The Bulldogs worked on shutting down Shelbyville’s strong possession and finding moments to counter the attack. It wasn’t until the end of the match when the Bulldogs finally took the lead. Ian Power was marked tight on the sideline.  He turned his defender and crossed a high lofted ball into the box where Eli Pierson jumped his defender and their keeper for a header into the net. Batesville denied Shelbyville the opportunity to equalize before the clock ran out and the Bulldogs won 1-0.

(JV) Shelbyville 2, Batesville 1
SH 2-1 at half

Edited Batesville JV recap from coach Hunteman: Prior to the varsity match, our JV had their chance against Shelbyville. In the first half, the Golden Bears scored two goals, and then the Bulldogs scored on a penalty kick by Grant Peters. The second half went on without another goal and Shelbyville came away with the win.

(VAR) South Ripley 4, Oldenburg 1
SR 2-0 at half.

Edited Oldenburg recap from coach Ken Getz: It was great to everyone back. We are almost at full strength. Luke Meyer is still out with a broken toe.  We came out flat in the first half.  That is on me and the coaching staff. We have to be ready.  We played much better in the second half.

South Ripley came into the game with a shiny 6-0-1 record and left with a win to keep their record unblemished. They have the best legit scorer in the area that I have watched so far this year. Zach Gentile gave us fits all night getting in behind our defense. He made some great runs and puts himself in good positions to score.

On offense we did get some shots but just didn’t get enough in the net. Freshman Jacob Hilbert scored our only goal by putting himself in a good position to get a rebound shot.

Scoring summary and stats from Oldenburg assistant coach Mike Wilhelm: Jacob Hilbert scored in period 2 at 16:54 by taking a shot from a ball rolling through the 18.  The Twisters had 15 shots with 8 on goal, 3 offsides, 6 fouls, 3 corners, 1 handball and Isaiah Waggoner had 7 saves as keeper.

In the first half, South Ripley scored at 19:27 on a misplayed ball in the 18. They scored again at 16:40 on a pass into the 18.  In the second half, South Ripley scored at 32:40 from a shot at the top of the 18.  Their fourth goal came at 4:34 from a shot in the six.  Zach Gentile had all four goals and took 12 shots during the game.  The Raiders had 19 shots total with 11 on goal, 5 offsides, 7 fouls, 6 corners and their keeper had 7 saves.
