The Western Panthers & Central Catholic Knights traded goals throughout the first half of this first round Hoosier Conference tournament match-up. The Panthers were able to strike first, but the Knights evened the score when Joaquin Gallo ran down a free ball & edged past the keeper. Later, after Western had taken the lead again, Edgar Sanchez was able to score off a deflection from the Panthers. After half-time, Knights’ keeper Delano Aslan & the Central Catholic defense shut down the Panthers, while the Knights’ offense were able to create two more goals. Gallo scored his second goal on an assist from Luke Cooley, and Sanchez garnered his second goal on a header on a nicely placed corner kick from Gabe Obermiller. The 5-2-1 Knights advance to the winner’s bracket of the Hoosier Conference tournament on Saturday, at Northwestern High School, to play the West Lafayette Red Devils. Good Luck Knights!
