Bruins make history with win

BROWNSBURG — Being the first to accomplish something no other team has before is a difficult task under any circumstance and the Tri-West Bruins boys’ soccer team made school history Saturday night. With a 2-0 win over Greencastle at the 2012 IHSAA Class A, Sectional 50 final at Bethesda, the Bruins took home the school’s first-ever sectional title.

“It’s great for the team and school. I can’t really put it into words,” said Tri-West assistant coach Jeff Denny, who filled in for coach Adam Bontreger. “It’s great for the kids  and a good building experience as we keep growing. Guys stepped up that really hadn’t stepped up before and they stepped up tonight. We played together as a team.”

The victory came on the same day the Tri-West girls’ soccer team won its second consecutive sectional title. The Lady Bruins were in the same position as the boys last season, winning their first soccer sectional title. With their victory earlier in the day against North Montgomery, it gave the guys a little extra motivation for their game.

“When they won this morning we were all like ‘We have to win this now,’” freshman Jaret DeGolyer said.

DeGolyer scored Tri-West’s first goal on the night, rolling in a touch shot after a well-placed free kick from near midfield by teammate Aaron Sorgius.

“I saw the ball come through and Sam (Koelling) was in perfect position to get it, but he saw me and let it go through,” DeGolyer said. “The defense backed off enough to where I could get my foot in there and that was it. It felt like an eternity for it to get in there.”

The goal came with 3:07 left in the first half after the Bruins had dominated the time of possession and outshot the Tiger Cubs, 9-3. Tri-West seemed very much in control of the contest, but its constant efforts were denied by Greencastle’s defense.
