Orioles shut down rival Bulldogs, 3-0

BROWNSBURG — While it’s a coach’s job to critically dissect their team’s performances, sometimes there’s just nothing bad to say.

That was the case for Avon boys' soccer coach Phil Schmidt Thursday night, after the Orioles blanked rival Brownsburg 3-0 to move to a perfect 7-0 on the season.

"It was a great team effort," Schmidt said. "We possessed really well, our back line did a nice job and we found opportunities to break through their defense. We had great intensity and camaraderie, and it was fun to watch."

Avon kept pressure on throughout the contest, and finished with an 11-4 shots-on-goal advantage and a 10-1 edge in corner kicks.

"Avon’s a good team and you can’t take anything away from them," said Brownsburg coach Todd Frost, whose team fell to 4-2-1. "We do have some injuries and we’re just not a healthy bunch right now. When you play a team like that limping in a little bit, it’s tough."

Avon scored 13 minutes into the match when Jonathan Kopp streaked to track down the ball and fed Jordan Kleyn, who was fouled in the box. Kleyn followed with an untouched penalty kick for a 1-0 lead.

Kopp’s hustle made the goal possible.

"Kopp played a great game tonight," Schmidt said. "He played hard, fast and attacked. He did a great job getting loose there to set up the PK."

Despite Avon having seven more shots on goal in the first half, Brownsburg trailed just 1-0 at halftime, thanks in large part to a gutsy effort by goalkeeper Patrick Holden.

"Pat played well and kept us in a position to be dangerous and in the match," Frost said. "He’s shown a lot of quality lately. In the end, you just can’t absorb that much pressure and them not get through."
