Cardinal Ritter High School
Batesville High School
The Bulldogs were defeated in the championship match of the Greensburg Regional by No. 4 ranked Cardinal Ritter. Ritter slipped past the Bulldogs by a score of 1-0.
“This was a tough opponent and we were excited to challenge for the regional title,” BHS coach Kyle Hunteman commented. “We played a strong defensive game, but struggled to maintain possession against the opponent.
“This season we have always played up to our best competition and this was one of the best two halves that this team put together this season,” he added.
With only 1:23 on the clock in the first half Cardinal Ritter played a long cross over the top and an attacker sprinted on and headed the ball from the opposite side.
