Bulldogs lose heartbreaking regional, 4-3



“I was really watching the ball and I didn’t see Masey come in there,” Slavens said. “She made just a great play.”

Two and a half minutes later, Hannah Mummert found Sydney Marette for the Bulldogs goal and to take the 2-1 lead.

But the Braves answered back six minutes later for the second tie of the game.

Brownsburg wasn’t ready to sit back yet either as two minutes after Brebeuf scored the 2-2 tying goal, Victoria Edwards blasted a free kick from 25’ out to give the Bulldogs the lead with 29:46 remaining.

The Braves were able to score the 3-3 tying goal with 11:40 left and the game-winning goal with 9:46 remaining.

Nine seniors will graduate from the Brownsburg squad in Alex Gotkowski, Taylor Carter, Leah Thompson, Lindsay Miller, Samantha Peery, Alexa Stegemoller, Rachal Sperka, Edwards and Taylor Stivers, who returned from a severe right ankle injury to play in the Bulldogs’ final game of the season.

“I’m especially proud of these seniors, they really emptied the tank,” Slavens said.

Through the past nine games and sectional championship, the season drastically turned around for the Bulldogs who opened the season 1-9.

“It’s been phenomenal, it really has,” Slavens said. “About halfway through the season I was thinking, ‘Man, can this get over quick enough’ because we were horrible. But the last half of the season they have played so very, very well. It’s been a delight to be here.”

The gracious coach also wanted to show appreciation for his time at the helm of the Bulldogs.

“I just want to thank Brownsburg High School for giving me the opportunity they gave me 15 years ago to do this,” Slavens said. “I know I’m not the best coach around but I’ve had players who have just absolutely kept me young.”

Instead of riding off into the sunset, Slavens said he’s going to stay busy.

“I’m going to take a year off and grow a garden,” he said. Sit on the front porch a little bit and I may go back to coach little kids. I’m sure I’ll be around.”
