The Indians started strong at Orrville Stadium, but the final tally was disappointing to the players and the faithful.
Eli Vale adeptly beat their goalie on a pass from Aiden Loverink, just three minutes in to give the visitors a lead. A stout defense, along with outstanding Keeper play by Kyle Scheibe, held the Red Riders at bay. However, the home group was able to take a 2-1 lead into the half time.
A few ill-advised coaching adjustments did not work as well as hoped and the second half belonged to Orrville. The final of 6-1 was not indicative of the competitive nature of our team this night.
Now, there is little time to grieve because we host Tuslaw on Wednesday (5 p.m.) and then travel cross county to Doylestown on Thursday (5 pm) to challenge the league leading Chipps.
