Stars fall in sectional championship game

Crawfordsville — For the first 40 minutes of play Saturday afternoon, the Western Boone boys soccer team appeared to be in control of the sectional title game against Crawfordsville.

But the second half was a different story. Crawfordsville scored three minutes into the second half and added two more goals later to win the sectional championship 3-0.

“You have to give it to Crawfordsville, they came out and they turned it up a notch,” Western Boone head coach Mike Schlemmer said. “They turned their energy up a notch and hats off to Crawfordsville today.”

The loss denied Western Boone’s second-straight sectional championship and gave Crawfordsville its fourth in five years.

The shutout was the 12th for the Athenians this season, which is top in the state.

“It starts with their keeper (Jake Zurawski), he is a very good athlete and communicates well with his defense,” Schlemmer said. “They are aggressive and I thought we had the better of the play in the first half. We were passing well and we just couldn’t put that last pass together to get that goal.”

Western Boone controlled the first half possession wise, but could not get the goal they needed.

Crawfordsville turned it up in the second half, pushing forward from the opening kick.

The Athenians struck first just 3:08 into the second half when Joel Monroe scored. Less than eight minutes later, Josue Cardenas put in a rebound to make it 2-0 and but a big damper in the Stars’ hopes.
