Lawrenceburg High School
Batesville High School
The Batesville Bulldogs JV boys soccer team was looking to add a third consecutive win to start the season Thursday night in an EIAC game at home against Lawrenceburg.
Batesville scored the first goal of the game with 8 minutes remaining in the first half. Gabe Straub was able to play a ball over the defense to Zack Blomer who headed the ball past the Tiger goalkeeper. Fortunate to be on top, the Bulldogs went into halftime with a 1-0 lead, but knowing they had to play better in the second half. Batesville added to their lead early in the second half, thanks to another great pass from Gabe Straub. Gabe played a deep ball out of the defensive third, and Michael Ripperger received the pass to beat one defender before finishing with a well placed effort on goal. With Batesville on top 2-0, the Tigers upped their intensity and scored two unanswered goals to tie the game.
