Girls Varsity Soccer vs. Batesville HS School

Game Date
Sep 10, 2020
Score
OLYMPIANS: 5
BATESVILLE HIGH SCHOOL: 0

Although it didn’t put up as many goals as it did in Tuesday’s 13-1 win against Bedford North Lawrence, the Columbus East girls were once again productive on offense Thursday night.

The Olympians scored twice in the first half, then put up three more goals in the second half to post a 5-0 victory against Class 2A No. 12 Batesville.

"I thought we played very well," East coach Ilya Schwartzman said. "I thought our passing game was on, and we created a ton of opportunities in the first 10 minutes. It didn’t happen (then), but the kids stayed with it, and we continued to play our game."

Alana Dwenger netted both first-half goals for the Olympians (4-4). She scored off an assist from Chloe Miller in the seventh minute and off a pass from Ruth Federle in the 24th minute.

"I thought we worked very hard tonight because we knew Batesville from previous years, and they’re always fast and strong," Dwenger said. "It took us awhile to get going, but we moved well and had a lot of good finishes and crosses and combinations. We were able to get each other and get shot after shot. We are working together a little better than we were early in the season."

In the second half, Maggie Matthews scored off an assist from Federle in the 60th minute. Matthews then assisted on a goal by Sydney Berkemeier in the 68th minute, and Federle added the final goal in the 70th minute.

East outshot the Bulldogs 27-5, putting 12 shots on goal to one for Batesville. Anna Liimatta recorded one save.

"Defensively, I thought we were solid," Schwartzman said. "We had a couple little mistakes in the midfield that we can clean up, but overall, it was a very good game defensively. We shut down a very good Batesville team."

The Olympians now turn their attention toward a Saturday evening home matchup with Floyd Central in a game that could decide the Hoosier Hills Conference championship.

"It’s a great springboard for our game on Saturday," Schwartzman said. "We’re putting a lot of good combinations together. Our young players are maturing very quickly and doing good. We’ve not peaked by any means. We have a long way to go, but I really like where we are right now."
