Brownsburg opens with win

AVON — Through intermittent rain Monday night, the one constant, besides the water falling from the sky, was the Brownsburg boys’ soccer team’s offense.

The Bulldogs scored three goals in each half, winning 6-0 and knocking county rival Plainfield from postseason play in their largest margin of victory all season.

Despite the conditions and a nearly weeklong layoff before playing this game, Brownsburg competed the way coach Todd Frost had hoped.

“It was good to come out and knock the rust off of it, and these conditions obviously scare me a little bit but we came out and did what we needed to do,” Frost said. “I felt like we got to do what we wanted to do and our goals coming into this match were accomplished.”

Brownsburg’s first shot attempt came within less than a minute into the match as sophomore Michael Young’s header fell into the arms of Plainfield goalkeeper Jeff Todd.

That shot was the first of many for Brownsburg as the Bulldogs pressured Plainfield throughout the half and game, taking 19 shots in total compared to three for the Quakers.

Brownsburg’s first of nine corner kicks came at the 24:40 mark as Geno James lofted the ball in and Neil Kippenbrock’s header sailed just over the crossbar.

The Bulldogs took another corner just over two minutes later and this time James was credited with an assist as Kippenbrock’s header found the back of the net.

James tallied his second assist of the night minutes later as he played a nifty through ball to a sprinting Daniel Johnson whose shot found the back right of the net for a 2-0 lead.

Plainfield tried its best to keep Brownsburg out of its end of the pitch as the first half wound down, but with 31 seconds remaining a Quakers defender was called for a foul in the box.
