Avon, Brownsburg advance to final

BROWNSBURG — As the boys’ soccer sectional kicked off at Brownsburg Wednesday night, two spots for today’s 2 p.m. final were on the line.

Avon took on Mooresville in the opening contest while Brownsburg played county rival Plainfield.

Mooresville kept Avon out of its goal for the entire first half as the Orioles could not get their shots to the back of the net, despite dominating the time of possession. Avon (17-0-1) stayed patient and came away with a 1-0 victory.

“I don’t take anything for granted and Mooresville played hard and got numbers behind the ball,” Avon coach Phil Schmidt said. “The guys were pressing a little and at 0-0 and the longer it goes, Mooresville keeps pressing and I think the guys were a little frustrated. We tried to do a little too much at times and missed some shots we’d have liked to make.”

Noah Zorniger broke the scoreless tie with 31:50 left in the second half as he slid a ball past Mooresville keeper Michael Ronan.

“It started working from the mid and a through ball came, I slid and hit it under the keep,” Zorniger said. “We came out real lazy, not ready to play, but the second half we picked it up a little bit.”

Avon, ranked second in the state and nation, has won the past five sectional titles, however, Schmidt and Zorniger both said it’s one game at a time.

“We’ve got big goals and we just have tried to focus on the next game and whoever we play will give us a great run on Saturday,” Schmidt said. “We haven’t talked about the rankings a single bit. That’s something the fans and parents talk about and it’s a lot of fun after the season to reflect. It doesn’t win you any games along the line.”
