It was mostly quiet on the western front for sports front last night, but a couple of tennis matches and soccer games were played. Here's a recap of yesterday's results.
Braves 3, Wildcats 2: The Jasper boys tennis team gave it everything they had and took three of their five matches to a third set, but in the end it wasn't enough as they were defeated by Terre Haute South. No. 3 singles player Justin Shultz beat Seth Gage, and the No. 1 singles team of Mitch Kluemper and Bennett Schmitt took down Jacon Thacker and Caleb Morris.
Jeeps 5, Raiders 0: Northeast Dubois came out blazing in their opening match, which was rescheduled from Tuesday afternoon because of the weather, and swept Southridge to start their season. Reece Bauer defeated Austin Barkley, Ross Mehringer beat Owen Kinker, and Tanner Hunt took down Max Rasche in the singles matches. Luke Harder and Ethan Ziegler overcame Ethan Bell and Sam Sermersheim, while Tucker Neukam and Logan Lampert took the victory over Konner Thyen and Levi Schaeffer in doubles play.
Bulldogs 2, Wildcats 1: Jasper took to the road looking for their first win, but they couldn't overcome an early two-goal defecit as they lost to New Albany. The Bulldogs scored two goals in the first half, and while the Wildcats were able to get one back in the second half they couldn't find the net again to either win or force an extra period of play.
