Even though the Lady Pirates defense managed to catch the Cubs offsides 14 times, it was not enough. The Cubs challenged Keeper Ella Lowe by taking 28 shots on goal, one of which was a penalty kick. While Lowe impressively kept 26 of those shots out, two managed to settle on the scoreboard. It was a hard-fought matchup by both sides. The Pirates took 18 shots on goal with Macey Smith taking the most at six and Smith scoring the only Greensburg goal. This brings the Pirates record to 4-3 as they go into a long break. For their next match up they travel to East Central on September 15.Courtesy of Pirates Coach Ryan Morlan.Batesville Bulldogs traveled to Jac Cen Del High School to compete in a non-conference match winning 6-0.Within the first half, Batesville managed to score 2 against JCD. Junior Adam Vogelsang crossed a ball from the width into JJ Kuisel for a shot in the goal. On the next goal, Ian Powers found Eli Pierson on a through ball to finish.The second half started with the Bulldogs refocused to play their style which led to great possession and more threats on the back of the net. About 10 minutes into the half Ian Powers dribbled in, cut across his defender, and ripped into the goal. Then Cody Sims picks up a deflected ball and takes a low driven shot into the net. The 5th goal happened when Ian Powers’ shot was touched by a defender causing an own goal. The final goal of the match freshman Sebbie Trainor takes a free kick outside of the box which hits off the keeper’s gloves and over into the goal. Batesville’s defense held up eliminating any potential counter-attacks from JCD giving a shutout.Courtesy of Bulldogs Coach Kyle Hunteman.The Sunman-Dearborn AquaTrojans took on the AquaTrojans in the intersquad meet of the century!!

Jac-Cen-Del hosted the Milan Indians on Thursday night. The Eagles started off extremely slow and the first set scores showed. After fighting back from down 0-2 they lost the match in the 5th set.Eagles Coach Cat Schmeltz—‘We continue to have slow starts to matches which hurts us in the long run. Once the kids start playing faster they play to their ability and we are able to win seats. We never really were able to pick the pace up in the first set and we lost big. In the second set, it took us about half the game to catch up, and once we did we just couldn’t get over the hump. The third and fourth sets were when we finally woke up and we were able to pull out two wins. Again our slow start in sets got to us in the fifth and we just ran out of time. I was really proud of our kids that they didn’t fold and quit playing they kept fighting and had a chance to win in the end.’Serving.Aundrea Cullen 28/30 — 4 aces; Desiree Sparks 12/14 — 4 aces; Emma Newhart 13/13.Serve Receive.
