Game Recap
The East Central Trojan Men’s Soccer team took on the Batesville Bulldogs last night. It was the Trojans senior honor night and also the game that would decide the conference championship. The Trojans and the Bulldogs were both looking for a win to capture the EIAC title. The Trojans came out with all Senior starters and looked to play their style of game. For the first 15 minutes it was a back and forth game as a talented Batesville team who was undefeated came out with confidence and intensity. The Trojans had finally settled down and started working the ball around. With 10:40 left in the first half Senior Dillon Bergman fought for possession near the 18 and passed it to Senior Jacob Bittner who then sent it in for Senior Sam Burns who finished the ball into the back of the net to make it 1-0. Following the Senior night production of the 14 Seniors the Trojans came out inspired to hold down their home pitch. Only a minute and a half into the second half Sam Burns took a ball passed from Grant Williams and struck it into the side netting to give EC a 2-0 lead. The Bulldogs did not lay back and brought a lot of pressure but the team defense and Keeper Jacob Zengerling help keep the Bulldogs out of the score column. The Trojans outshot the Bulldogs 15-7. “It is always a pleasure to win on Senior night but to be able to win the Conference on Senior night is a little more special. We knew the Bulldogs were going to be a tough team because they have some talented players and Coach Fox does a great job getting his kids ready to play. Now we are looking to sectionals and getting healthy and ready for a push to State hopefully.”-Coach Black
