Eagles can’t hold lead against Avon

Avon — Sometimes a momentum change is all one team needs.

Avon, down 1–0, scored before halftime to tie it and scored just minutes into the second half, as the Orioles topped Zionsville 2–1 in boy’s soccer on Saturday night.

The Avon goal seemed to shift the momentum toward their side.

“That goal that we scored at the end of the first half was really key, that took some wind out of their sails and it got us excited,” Avon coach Phil Schmidt said. “And we took that momentum into the second half.”

In the first half, Zionsville kept the pressure up, keeping Avon senior goalkeeper Tyler Beam busy, as their offense seemed to be swarming around the goal box.

 Beam was doing all that he could, including getting an initial save on a shot on goal, but Eagles senior Ben Kuller was right there for the rebound and swiftly put it into the back of the goal, to give Zionsville the 1–0 lead midway through the first half.   

Avon would come back on the offensive and with the help of some free kicks and a couple of corner kicks, and got pressure on Eagles senior goalkeeper Spenser Huls.

Then just before halftime, Oriole senior Sam Camp found a seam inside the goal box and promptly tied the game, 1–1. And suddenly, you could almost feel the momentum change.
