Batesville High School
Franklin Community High School
The Bulldogs traveled to Franklin Community High School for a non-conference match.
Justin Puente played a diagonal ball from the midfield to Michael Ripperger on the left wing, which was dribbled to goal and nicely placed to the right back netting. A second goal for Batesville arrived at 7:25 left on the clock. Ripperger dribbled down the flank, cut back nicely, and placed the ball far post.
The Bulldogs opened second half play with a two goal advantage, but Franklin came back hard and they struggled to keep defensive shape. Franklin scored three unanswered goals to pull out the victory.
