Frustrating tie for Eagles on senior night

Zionsville — The seventh-ranked Zionsville Lady Eagles soccer team dominated in nearly every way possible Wednesday evening in its senior night match-up with Harrison.

The only aspect they didn’t was the one that matter the most — the scoreboard. Zionsville out-shot Harrison 18-1 in the match but were forced to settle for a 0-0 tie.

“The girls are pretty frustrated,” Zionsville head coach Ramon Aguillon said. “We have had three games in a row like that. We played well, we created a lot of chances, we just got unlucky. I think we have hit a string of bad luck in scoring; that happens sometimes and our main goal is to get ready for sectional.”

The Eagles have scored one goal or less in their last seven games.

They haven’t scored more than two goals in a game since the second game of the season.

Wednesday, Aguillon said the girls were pressing when they getting into the final third.

“We talked about it that,” Aguillon said. “Our shot selection needs to be a little better, some of those were a little too far. When you aren’t scoring, you try to do a little too much and the girls were trying to push a little too hard at the end. You can’t be mad with the effort. Obviously on senior night you want to send the seniors out with a win, but it was a great game for the seniors to play.”

The Eagles’ best chance to score came with 23 minutes left in the game when Julia Ollikainen looped a shot that hit the inside of the right post and cut across the goal line but didn’t go over the line.

Ollikainen was one of 10 seniors that were able to get the start in their final home game.

“It was great,” Aguillon said. “We obviously play every game to win, but tonight it was more important to give those seniors their recognition that they deserve. This was their fourth year in the program and for some of them it was their first career start. That was the most important thing.”
