The Batesville boys soccer team traveled to Union County Tuesday to compete in their first away game of the season and won 7-0.
Eli Pierson found the first goal for the Bulldogs with an assist from Emi Lopez. For the second goal of the half, Talan Rowlett laid off the ball to Ethan Goodin for a shot inside the box. The first half ended 2-0 as the Bulldogs worked to control the midfield.
In the second half, Batesville fought to extend their lead. Goodin found Pierson up top for a low shot on goal. The Bulldogs scored a PK next when Goodin challenged a 1-v-1 with the keeper and got fouled off the ball. The team’s fifth goal was scored by Pierson and assisted by Thomas Hartman. The final two goals were netted by Noah Pierson and Ian Carpenter to complete the 7-0 road win over the Patriots.
We thank Batesville coach Kyle Hunteman for this edited recap.
