Tri-West splits with Frankfort

LIZTON — With IHSAA sectional play just over a week away, the Tri-West boys’ and girls’ soccer teams hosted their final 2013 regular season matches on Saturday.

The Bruins’ girls booted a 5-0 victory over Frankfort, while the boys lost a heartbreaking 3-2 overtime contest that likely decided the Sagamore Conference title.

Girls

The girls’ match opened the day, and the Bruins chalked up their 12th victory of the season in convincing fashion. Tri-West played out to a 4-0 halftime lead and dominated the second half.

Tri-West coach Billy Hall commended his senior class, a group that won three Sagamore Conference titles and a sectional along the way.

“I cannot say enough about the leadership of our senior class — all of them started today, and that experience is a really valuable asset to have,” Hall said. “We really executed ball movement pretty well, and had some great assists and finishes today. We have our sights set on sectionals and the tournament now.”

Senior Sydney Carlson got things rolling with the first goal. Marita VanDyke booted in the next two goals, before Paige Newton connected on a fourth before the break. Senior Alyssa Wente, who scored her first tally of the year, dropped in the second half score.

Four of the Bruins’ goals were assisted, with Katie Parsons registering two. The other assists came from Lexi Turner and Madison Sprecher.

Keeper Karen Jones had pretty easy day in the net as she did not have to make any saves. It was the Bruins eighth shutout on the season.

Tri-West improved to 12-2 with the win in the final home match for Carlson, Wente, Parsons, Brittney Kiefer, Raegan Lentner, Abby Meyers, Lauren Mardis, Corbin Badger, and Sylvia Willis.

Boys

While the girls’ match was more one-sided, the feature match turned out to be the Bruins and Hot Dogs boys’ teams. With the two teams tied at 4-1 atop the Sagamore Conference standings, both sides knew the importance of the match.
