Bulldogs Victorious Over Trojans
The Batesville Bulldogs hosted the East Central Trojans for our final home game of the season wining 2-1.

During the first half, the intensity built as both teams threatened the goal and battled for possession. The first half remained 0-0 and it wasn’t until the second half that the tie was finally broken. Freshman Sebbie Trainor passed a through ball to JJ Kuisel who sprinted in with a defender at his back and shot around the keeper into the net. The next goal by the Bulldogs happened when freshman Ian Carpenter found JJ Kuisel again on a diagonal ball where JJ took the breakaway again besting the keeper.

The Bulldogs had some momentum but also a huge amount of pressure to defend the win. In the final 10 minutes, EC cut across the midfield and found a 1v1 shot on the keeper. Batesville’s defense held out until the clock ran down giving Batesville the win. Ethan Brewer played one of his best matches making some impressive stops and keeper saves to ensure our victory.

Shout out to our 8th grader Lucy Abplanalp on finishing her SLS volleyball career last night.  She is such a great spirit to have on a team.  Always finds the good in things and is a real leader on the court.  I know she was super thankful for all the 7th-grade teammates, as was I Coach Erin Trenkamp.  Best of luck Lucy in high school can’t wait to see you play there.
