Wildcat girls soccer will play tonightOctober 9, 2017
Nine seasons have come and gone since the Jasper girls soccer team last won a sectional championship. So what’s two more days to wait for a chance at ending that drought?
The Wildcats will host their Class 2A sectional final tonight against Washington, a rescheduling necessitated by heavy rain Saturday night.
Jasper, coming off a thrilling 2-1 semifinal victory over 2A No. 5 Gibson Southern, is seeking its first postseason hardware since making a semi-state run in 2007.
The Wildcats (12-5-1) and Hatchets (5-9-2) will get started at 7 p.m. today, with the winner facing 2A No. 1 Evansville Memorial on Saturday in a Jasper Regional semifinal.
The rest of the weekend’s best in local prep sports:
Raider boys ousted: Southridge boys soccer could not continue a fairy tale run in the Class 2A tournament, falling 6-2 to Washington in the Washington Sectional final.
The Raiders (6-9) were coming off their first-ever postseason victory, beating Gibson Southern in the semifinal round last Thursday.
Patriots girls stopped: A state-ranked girls soccer battle went the wrong way for Heritage Hills.
The Class 2A No. 20 Patriots saw their season end with a 7-0 loss to 2A No. 1 Evansville Memorial in the Heritage Hills Sectional final.
The Patriots finished their season with a 12-5 mark.
Heritage Hills wins title: Abby Wahl posted 27 kills and Melissa Bell added 26 as the Heritage Hills volleyball team won its own invitational by sweeping three matches.
The Patriots (27-4) closed the regular season by topping Loogootee, Washington and Northeast Dubois.
In a 25-17, 25-15 win against the Pioneers, Wahl’s 11 kills and Abby Wetzel’s 19 assists led the way. Corrie Burroughs contributed nine digs while Hannah Schnuck added eight in the win.
In a 25-9, 25-9 triumph versus the Hatchets, Bell’s nine kills were a team high. Wetzel posted 18 assists, and the trio of Burroughs, Bell and Schnuck each made five digs.
In a 25-18, 25-15 victory against the Jeeps, Wahl collected nine kills to go with five digs from Bell, three aces from Schnuck and two blocks from Jessica Bertke.
Northeast Dubois (24-5) picked up two wins against its one loss in the tournament, defeating South Spencer 25-14, 25-19 and Evansville North 25-13, 25-15.
Kortney Quinn collected 16 kills between the two wins, while Chloe Terwiske added 37 assists and Brooklyn Dodd scored 14 digs.
