Oriole boys fall short in 2A finale

INDIANAPOLIS — After Avon’s girls notched a Class 2A title earlier on Saturday at IUPUI, the dream scenario of two state championships in one day was there for the Oriole boys.

The dream didn’t come true.

Avon went to overtime tied 1-1 with Crown Point, but gave up two goals in the first OT and fell 3-1 to the now two-time state champs.

“I’m just really proud of our season and proud of our guys,” Avon coach Phil Schmidt said. “I give Crown Point a lot of credit. They’re a great team and deserved to win tonight. They played their hearts out, too, and made the plays necessary in overtime to win it.”

Avon standout Jordan Kleyn went down toward the end of regulation after taking an elbow to the head, which left an instant mark on his face. Kleyn tried to go in OT, but came off due to wooziness.

Crown Point (23-0-1) took the lead in the first overtime on a goal credited to Nate Brower. Replays suggested the ball deflected off Brower’s arm and into the goal as he and others fought for position.

“The ref called it the way he called it, so without seeing it on tape, nobody could make much of that,” Schmidt said. “My goalie said he wasn’t sure it went in, so we’ll leave it at that.”

Brower said he didn’t feel the ball go off any body part.

“I don’t know what happened,” Brower said. “I went up for the header and I guess it went in.

“I went up there, then fell down and started cramping, so I don’t remember.”

Just over a minute after that goal, Crown Point scored on a shot from the left side of the box by Brad Kurtz for the final margin.
