Bulldogs defeat SouthDearborn and Greensburg

The No. 13 ranked Batesville High School soccer team traveled to South Dearborn on Thursday and left with a 1-0 victory.

Tied at 0-0 after 80 minutes of play, the Bulldogs outscored the Knights 3-0 in the penalty kick shootout to preserve their 10th consecutive victory.

It was the third time this season the Bulldogs would be forced to break a tie with the new shootout format.

Scoring goals during the shootout were Andy Nolan, Luis Davalos and Austin Meyer.

“The good news is that we were able to get the important EIAC victory and continue to dominate in the shootout,” BHS head coach Chris Fox commented. “The bad news is that we failed to score given the number of chances we had and continue to struggle to break down opponent’s defense.”

Defensively, the Bulldogs played well, according to Fox.  “Ryan Fisher had one of his best games of the season and Sean Laker made several key saves in the shootout,” he commented. “In terms of wins and losses this is one of the best seasons in many years and if we can continue to improve it could be one of the best in school history.

“Once we understand how to possess the ball with a purpose and really connect on our passes and runs, we will start to light up the scoreboard,” he added.

  Batesville improves to 11-1-1 overall and 7-1 in the EIAC.

Bulldogs edge Greensburg 1-0

The Bulldogs picked up a 1-0 win at home against the Greensburg Pirates.

Despite out-shooting the Pirates in the first half, the Bulldogs were unable to score and the teams entered the break tied 0-0.

The second half was much of the same.

Davalos broke the 0-0 stalemate with a goal with just seven minutes remaining in the game.

Davalos broke free of the Pirate defense and sent the ball to the far post and passed the Greensburg keeper.
