Beech Grove High School
Speedway High School
The Hornets traveled to Speedway last night to take on the Sparkplugs in a conference matchup. Despite being without several varsity players due to injuries, the Hornets played well against the Sparkplugs, giving Speedway much competition. Speedway came out strong on their senior night, scoring two early goals against the Hornets. Around the 22nd minute mark, senior captain Shawn White stole the ball from a Speedway defender and scored by chipping the ball over the Sparkplug goalkeeper. Speedway found the back of the net twice more before the half was over. The Hornets came out stronger in the second half, keeping the Sparkplugs scoreless for the final 40 minutes. The match ended with Speedway winning against Beech Grove 4-1.
A JV half was played after the varsity match. The Hornets began strong and fast with sophomore Jaiden Harding scoring in the first minute. Speedway kept the Hornets scoreless the rest of the JV half while the Sparkplugs managed to score three times. The JV lost 3-1.
The Hornets next travel to Franklin Central on Saturday morning to face the sectional foe Flashes at 11:30am.
