WINCHESTER — in a dominating outing, Shelbyville Central’s Golden Eagle soccer team claimed a repeat to the District 6-AAA Tournament with a 5-1 win over host Franklin County on Thursday night.
“The performance this team put in tonight was just amazing on both ends of the ball. We split with Franklin County in regular season, but we knew how they capitalized on other team’s mistakes in front of the goal. We asked the boys to limit mistakes in our half of the field,” Shelbyville Central coach Chris Fritz said. “I can’t say enough about this group of seniors and their commitment to this program. We ask for so much from our boys and continue raising the bar each season. For four years, most of these seniors have poured into this program through heat, rain, and freezing cold. Seniors Jonathan Medel and Ryan Tacuba were battling and leading us from the backline tonight.”
The Eagles opened scoring with a nice goal from Freshmen Fernando Gallardo off of an Arnold Avila assist.
Franklin tied it back just a few seconds later.
The Eagles added a goal off of an Arael Sanchez finish and a Jake Betzelberger header assist.
Before the end of the first half Ryan Tacuba send a beautiful header on the corner into the net for the 3-1 halftime lead.
The second half involved two Yahir Cervantes goals. The first came from a penalty on Daniel Torres that Yahir knocked into the net. The second goal came off of a right footed slotted finish on the ground.
The Eagles host a talented Cleveland team on Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the region semifinals.
