Boys Soccer Sectional Semifinals


Rangers 3, Marksmen 1: The Forest Park boys soccer team advanced to the Class 1A Sectional 48 championship by defeating PAC foe Tell City on Wednesday evening.

The Rangers led 1-0 at the halftime break and added a few more goals in the second half en route to the victory. Garrett Jochem (penalty kick), JD Kerber and Gabe Muller scored for Forest Park in the win.

Hatchets 2, Raiders 0: The Southridge boys soccer team was able to hang tough with Class 2A No. 2 Washington but eventually fell just short to the Hatchets in the sectional semifinal at Fort Branch.

The Hatchets got one goal in each the first and second halves while the Raiders were unable to punch one in. Southridge finishes with an 8-6-1 record on the year.


Rebels 4, Jeeps 3, OT: Perhaps the most exciting game of the night was the semifinal match between Northeast Dubois and South Spencer.

The Jeeps led 2-1 at the halftime break but the Rebels clawed their way back into it to force overtime.

South Spencer got a goal into the back of the net in the second half of the overtime period and would hold for the victory to upset the Class 1A No. 14 Jeeps and advance to the sectional title game.

Vetle Fossan scored two goals for Northeast Dubois in the loss while Jacob Ivey added the other one.

Tigers 2, Patriots 0: In a tough battle between two of the top teams in Southern Indiana, Class 2A No. 3 Evansville Memorial held on to defeat No. 4 Heritage Hills in a game where all the goals came in the second half.

Memorial and Heritage Hills played to a 0-0 tie in the first half but Isaac Bennett and Ben Bersch got on the board for Memorial in the second half to advance them to the sectional championship against Evansville Mater Dei.
