Knights hold off Braves in scoreless soccer tie

Thursday, September 8, 2005

Staff Reports

The Northview boys soccer team endured a pair of losses over the weekend (3-2, 6-5) while losing nearly half their players due to injury in the two games.

However, the Knights returned home against rival Terre Haute South and played to a scoreless tie, the best result in school history versus their Vigo County neighbors.

"Normally when we play our Varsity vs their Varsity, we hope to keep the score respectable, but this year we came away proud of the shutout, but still disappointed because we knew we had them."

On offense, Jiarus Martinez had the best scoring chance for the Knights when he took a ball in front of the Braves penalty area and was tripped up. No foul was called since the contact was ruled incidental. Northview had four shots in the game with John Latta, Martinez and both Shane Boyd and Jordan Pond each taking a shot

In the defensive half, Michael Gallion and Shaun Hardey each had eight steals and Taylor Montague sealed the shutout in net with 24 saves.

Up next for Northview (4-4-1 overall) will be a contest on Saturday with Greencastle. The Knights will celebrate their 10th anniversary during the afternoon.
