OA soccer team wins regional title over Scecina

The Oldenburg Academy boys soccer team is now only one of eight teams remaining in Class A following a 4-3 victory over Scecina Memorial on Saturday.

The Twisters rallied from a 3-1 halftime deficit to knock off the Crusaders in the championship game at the Knightstown Regional.

It did not look good for the Twisters early, but they proved an outcome is not determined until the final horn sounds.

“The first 20 minutes of the game we were on our heels ... we let Scecina control the tempo,” OA head coach Ken Getz commented.

Hayden Johnson scored the team’s only goal of the first half off an assist by Daniel Mullen.

Just as the defense improved in the second half so did the offense. Taylor Reed scored on a penalty kick and Mullen on an assist by Ted Geis to knot the score at 3-3. A Josh Kinker goal with 4:09 to play in the game proved to the game-winner.

Matty Hurm led the defensive effort and got some needed help in the second half. “Matty came up big and made some outstanding defensive plays,” Getz commented. He also credited freshman Tyler Wachsman with giving the team a lift in the defensive end.

Twisters advance to finals

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

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

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

“This game was a tale of two halves,” 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.
