Bruins bring home second straight sectional

GREENCASTLE — After bringing home the school’s first  girls’ soccer sectional title last season, the returning six Tri-West seniors were hungry to repeat that feat this year. Against North Montgomery on Saturday, the Bruins won their second consecutive sectional title with a dominating 4-1 win over the Chargers.

“This feels great because it is my senior year and our team has come along this year after losing so many great players,” Tri-West senior Gabby Edwards said. “I’m really happy that we pulled through. We are a great team and we are so happy.”

Tri-West coach Jeff Sloan appreciates the effort those seniors brought to the table this season and it has paid off with another sectional title and a 15-3 record.

“This is a strong team that graduated two previous strong teams and they’ve had good groups to learn from,” Sloan said. “I am hoping my juniors pick up on what they’ve brought to the table this season because they’ve just done a fantastic job.”

Tri-West controlled every facet of the game against the Chargers, outshooting them 21-3 while taking a 9-0 advantage in corner kicks. North Montgomery did not take its first shot until five minutes into the second half.

Edwards scored the first goal of the day for the Bruins, who battled through cold temperatures and a saturated, muddy field that held at minimum, eight areas with standing water. Edwards’ goal came at the 25:54 mark in the half as both teams fought to adjust to the conditions.

“It was a little cooler out here so they had to play through that and the damp conditions,” Sloan said. “They played good, strategic ball and did a good job.”

Tri-West spent much of the game and first half at the Chargers’ end of the pitch, but the Bruins could not get a second goal for added cushion despite many close shots.
