Game Recap
The East Central Trojans competed for the Sectional Championship Saturday at Madison. They took on another conference opponent the Batesville Bulldogs. Both teams knew that this game was going to be a tough fought and even match. The Trojans scored first as Forward Sam Burns took a pass from Grant Williams and dribbled along the 18 and struck the ball into the netting. The Bulldogs then answered at the 19:25 mark as Batesville’s Luis Davalos headed in a goal from a corner kick service by Hertel. The two teams went to the half tied 1-1. The second half was as evenly played as the first. Then at the 18:09 mark, Sophomore Grant Williams took a shot from deep outside the 18 and hit the upper right 90 to sink the goal. Then at the 16:42 mark Kurt Fox was racing to a ball inside the box and the Batesville keeper very stiffly shouldered him with no attempt on ball and the Trojans received a penalty kick. Sophomore Grant Williams stepped up and sunk the goal to put the Trojans up 3-1. That would serve to be the final score as the Trojans won the Sectional title. Both Keepers had 4 saves and the Trojans out shot the Bulldogs on goal 21-7. The Trojans will take on Connersville at Columbus for the first round of Regionals. “ I am very proud of these boys and what they have been able to accomplish this year. We have come a long way since the start of the season and they fought for this title. A lot of credit goes to Batesville as they played a very good game and played with a lot of desire, they are a good program and I expect them and us to battle for next years title. We are now focusing on Regionals and will have to play some very good competition to make it to State like we want to. Columbus North is 13th in the US and we will likely see Avon in Semi-State “”(#14 in the US) if we can keep up our winning ways.”-Coach Black
