Arcanum Advances

Arcanum won a rematch against the Dixie Greyhounds in the opening round the state volleyball tournament in Brookville. They won the first match about a week ago and although they repeated their 3 set win – it was a little harder to pull out that 3rd set win this time around.  The scoring was 25-10, 25-13, 25-22.

Tigers Win Thriller at South

The Ansonia Tigers won a thriller at Twin Valley South on Friday night. The game would not be decided until the very end of the last quarter.  It was a contest where both teams left it all on the field and went all out for 4 quarters.  The Tigers made some gutsy calls down the stretch and managed to come away with a 35-28 victory.

Patriots Playing for Pride

Both Tri-Village and Tri-County North have similar records - the Patriots entered the game with 8 wins and North entered the game with 7 wins.  And at this stage of the season, the teams are jockeying for position in the middle of the league.  With a game away from home at the end of the season, it would have been easy for the Patriots to mail it in and call it a night.  But the team was resilient and played with pride. It took 5 sets, and also playing from behind - but a “we are not quitting on this night” Patriots team rode home with the victory, spoiling North’s senior night.  Scoring was: 25-22, 14-25, 22-25, 25-17, 15-3.

Arcanum Dispatches Dixie

Arcanum was able to vanquish the SWBL’s Dixie Greyhounds in 3 sets to start their last week of the regular season.  The first two sets went as planned but the last set saw a scrappy Dixie team play even with Arcanum for the 1st half of the match and Arcanum had to get back into their groove and when they did they punched the accelerator and breezed past the Hounds for the win. The scoring was 25-11, 25-16, 25-13.

Arcanum Routs North

On paper the game should have been an easy win for Tri-County North who entered Fridays game with a record of 4-2.  Arcanum on the other hand, only had a single win. But when a team prepares well and you get momentum on your side – well that is how upsets happen.  A snowball became an avalanche as Arcanum took a 13-8 halftime lead and completely dominated the second half as they steamrolled to a 39-16 victory.

TVS Ties Botkins

Twin Valley South tied Botkins 2-2 on Tuesday evening.  Jacob Wells scored both of the goals for the Panthers.  Bryant Marker assisted one of the goals. 

Coach Young, "I was very proud the way my kids fought today. We had a 2-0 lead with under 10 minutes to go and we ran out of gas.  I had one starter who was sick and another one that got a concussion early in the first half.  Then I had one of my center backs start cramping. We just didn't have things go right for us today.  My kids did what they were told though and they gave it their all on the field." 

He continued, "It really hurts that we came out with a tie, because it seems like we have a trend of struggling to close out games late.  I thought we controlled the game as well.  Botkins is a good team, but if we were to see them in the tournament, I would be confident with my boys.  It was just unfortunate for us tonight, and we just need to take this and learn from it."

Ansonia Upsets South

It took 5 sets for Ansonia to finally put South away on the road, but the Tigers managed to win in come from behind fashion.  This conference win avenged a non-conference loss to South a few weeks back in a Saturday tournament.  After losing the 1st set on the road, it would have easy to tuck their tails for the next 2 sets and scamper back home.  But the Tigers clawed their way back into the match and had to come from behind in the last set for the final victory.  Scoring was:  14-25, 25-15,  13-25,  25-21,  15-9.

South Last Home Game a Win Over Dunbar

The Panthers won on senior night 6-2 over the Dunbar Wolverines. Scoring for the Panthers were Jacob Wells, Aaron Clark, Bryant Marker, Hunter Bennett, and Brayden Marker with 2 goals.  Jacob Wells and Hunter Bennett each had 2 assists as well.   Senior Jacob Denlinger had 9 saves on the night.  And seniors Ian Kurtz, Jimmy Mullins, and Travis Lovely all had stellar defensive games.  

Coach Young, "I know myself and my assistant coach would like to thank the seniors for the past two years and all the hard work they have put into our program.  We are going to miss these seniors next year.  We have a lot of great soccer players and an even better group of young men.  I feel they have set good examples for our younger players in the program."

He continued, "We still have a lot of soccer left even though that was our last home game.  We have Botkins tomorrow, FM Thursday, and then we have Bethel and Milton Union next week.  We have a tough remaining schedule but it will be good competition heading into the tournament."
