Avon advances by Brownsburg



Johnson’s rocket shot flew just underneath the crossbar where Beam alertly punched the ball above the frame, saving the game-tying goal.

And then the game-changing play occurred at the 31:14 mark.

James was given his second yellow of the contest, equaling a red card, and put Brownsburg a man down for the remainder of the match.  The senior walked to the sideline with his hands on his face and fell into Frost’s arms, as the magnitude of the situation began to set in.

“Going down a man put our back up against the wall and it is not an easy haul at that point,” Frost said. “I just feel bad for our guys.”

As James lay on the sideline the roars from the crowd confirmed the worst, Avon’s awarded free kick because of the penalty fell like a dagger in the back of the net. Camp arced his third goal of the night over the Brownsburg wall and past Holden for a 4-2 lead.

“Sam hit a beautiful shot on that free kick to score that goal, give him credit,” Schmidt said.

With frustration mounting, a Brownsburg defender committed a penalty inside the box only one minute later and Avon’s Jordan Kleyn made it 5-2.

Two more yellow cards on Brownsburg followed as they desperately tried to fight back into the match, but Avon’s defense remained solid and denied the effort.

“We talked about turning it up in the state tournament ,” Schmidt said. “We’ve talked about playing harder than we have played at any point this season. If we play hard and play as a team, we can go a long way. We made a great run last year and are hoping to do so this year. ”

Brownsburg not only lost the game but also loses a very talented group of seniors.

“They mean a lot and have given so much to the program,” Frost said. “Their commitment and dedication are great and as always it is going to be sad to see the seniors go.”

Avon takes on Mooresville at 10 a.m. Saturday in a rematch of the final sectional title game last year and looks to bring home its fifth consecutive sectional championship.
