Twisters beat Greenwood Christian in first round of regional play

The Oldenburg Academy boys soccer team is now only one of 16 teams remaining in Class A and will try to become one of only eight on Saturday.

The Twisters defeated Greenwood Christian by a score of 2-1 on Thursday in the first round of the Knightstown Regional.

The Twisters dominated the early stages of the game. Corner kicks that were played right in front of the goal came up empty as Greenwood Christian would find a way to avoid a goal.

And there were other chances missed as well.

Still, the Twisters kept attacking and finally produced the end result they wanted.

“This game was a tale of two halves,” OA head coach Ken Getz commented. “We played a great first half as we possessed the ball and kept the pressure on their defense.”

The Twisters outshot Greenwood 14-1 in the first half, but couldn’t find the back of the net.

The second half was a lot different as Greenwood Christian built some momentum and began to generate some offensive opportunities of its own.

 The Twisters broke the scoreless tie early in the second half. Aaron Huber scored from the weak side off a good read from Hayden Johnson.

“That seemed to inspire Greenwood as if they had scored,” Getz commented. “All of a sudden it seemed they had the momentum.”

Greenwood Christian scored near the midway point in the second half on a corner kick.

“It was deep on the far post with a lot of boys crashing on both teams and they won,” Getz noted.

The Twisters did not fold. With roughly 10 minutes left in the game, Ted Geis found Johnson on a cross and he converted.

Despite a few anxious moments and aggressive attacks from Greenwood Christian, the Twisters held on for the victory.

“Taylor Reed has really stepped up his game as he along with Ted controlled the midfield, especially in the first half,” Getz commented. “Daniel (Mullen) had some great reads in the first half as he found his teammates with some nifty passing.
