The Batesville Bulldogs traveled for an away game to face the Greensburg Pirates and left with a 7-0 victory.
The Bulldogs came into the match determined to win by working together as a unit and maintaining possession, according to coach Kyle Hunteman.
The first goal came from Johnathan Lynch crossing a ball into Miles Bowser for a header directly down into the back of the net. Next, Bowser found Calvin Sherwood with space for a driven ball from deep outside the 18 into the goal. Bowser stole the ball from the opponent in the midfield and played a nice through ball to Michael Ripperger, who nicely tapped it outside of the keepers reach.
The first half ended 3-0 with the Bulldogs controlling the ball and defending the Pirates.
Second half started, and minutes in, there was a drop kick which was won by Ripperger, who dribbled up and passed through to Bowser for a goal. Similar to a previous goal, Lynch once again crossed the ball into Bowser for his hat trick. Later, Ian Powers crossed a ball driven in and it deflected off of a defender into an own goal. Minutes remaining, Daniel Gutzwiller passed to Powers for a one touch shot past the keeper.
