Game Recap

As the blue, orange & white Wilson soccer ball slowly rolled across the Knight’s goal line & into the side of the net, the Central Catholic defenders looked on in disbelief. A strong game by the Knights was beset by this one less than stellar play by the #2 ranked University offense. Central Catholic battled the Trailblazers all morning long. Neither team could scratch out an advantage, with strong defensive & midfield play dominating both sides. However, with 20 minutes left in the match, and the score still knotted at 0-0, the Knights struggled to clear a ball deep inside their box. A University forward was able to control the ball briefly, and reach the endline, where he punched a ball weakly toward the goal. Two Knights attempted to knock the ball away, to no avail & by the time, that keeper, Austin Taylor could catch sight of the ball, it had rolled beyond his reach. The Knights played valiantly & created some opportunities throughout the match and especially in those final 20 minutes, but were unable to find the back of the Trailblazers net. The Central Catholic boys were understandably dejected after the game, but once they look back, they will see what a special season that they have enjoyed. A top ten ranking for the majority of the season, a Hoosier Conference Tournament Runner-up placing, and a second consecutive Sectional Championship, are just some of the memories that the 2017 Central Catholic boys soccer team will enjoy. The seniors have set a new tone for the Knights program. From a one-win season in their freshman year to a school record 15 wins this season, the 2018 Knights soccer team will now have fresh expectations . . . and they are high ones. Congratulations on a great season Knights & thank you seniors for all of your efforts! Best Wishes!
