Missed passes, bad breaks on balls, and missed opportunities on breakaways were the key differences in the game. Bosley said they just weren’t sharp enough.
Yet, the only goal of the game came when the Giants could not have done anything differently. Myers, on a free kick, dropped a well-placed rainbow shot over a wall of defenders and into the back of the net.
“The girl who kicked it was able to put it right over the top of the keeper’s head,” Bosley said. “We had a wall set up and we defended it as best we could, but it was just a beautiful strike.”
The free kick was set up after a foul was called right in front of the Ben Davis bench. With such a great view, it was a controversial call at most to Bosley.
“It was right in front of me and when he blew his whistle I literally looked up and was like, ‘Really? That’s a foul?’ But the referee called it,” he said.
Bosely said the Giants have played better as of late and look to secure just their second win of the season as they head into sectionals. Ben Davis plays Thursday against Pike in the first round.
The Ben Davis boys’ and girls’ soccer squads both fell in the first round of the Marion County Tournament last week.
The Ben Davis boys’ soccer team lost 3-0 to Decatur in the first round of the Marion County Tournament. For Ben Davis coach Andrew Rolinson, it was a bittersweet loss, losing to the program he once helmed.
“Disappointing for us,” he said. “It was just one of those games we talked about before we started. We actually had our game plan in place, we knew exactly what Decatur was going to do, and when it came game day we didn’t take the game serious. The kids kept thinking it was going to be an easy game for them and Decatur played with much more heart.”
