Game Recap
Last night, the Beech Grove girls and boys soccer programs traveled to Whiteland to play a double-header. Once again, thank you to all the parents and students who traveled south to cheer on their fellow Hornets, as both games were well attended. The ladies played first, followed by the boys. The Lady Hornets played a competitive match against the Warriors, but fell 0-3. The boys got to play under the lights, and the Hornets came out strong against the Warriors. Despite the strong opening offensive by the Hornets, the Warriors were first to get on the scoreboard. Whiteland scored first off a breakaway opportunity. The Warriors were able to score again with a great cross to the back post. Despite being down by two goals, the Hornets would not go away quietly into the night. Senior Nick Kinkead hit a beautiful cross across the field to junior Carlos Portillo, who received the ball at the back post and scored. Before the half was over, Beech Grove was awarded a penalty kick. Senior captain Aaron White took the shot, followed his own deflection off of the Whiteland goalkeeper, and scored. The score at halftime was tied at 2-2. The Hornets had a strong defense led by A. White, exchange students Levin Zimmermann and Leonardo Castagna, and junior Caleb Chandler. Senior goalkeeper Quinten Pettigrew was once again on fire, blocking a plethora of shots and hauling in balls one-handed like Reggie Wayne. Despite strong efforts by both teams to score in the second half, the score remained at 2-2 when time expired, ending the game in a tie. This was a highly competitive and entertaining match between a strong and established Whiteland program and an improving program at Beech Grove. The Hornets now stand at 3-4-1 for the season. The boys are back in action tomorrow evening at home, hosting the Greenwood Woodmen.
