Eagles take down top-ranked Carmel 1-0

Zionsville's Annika Schmidt doesn't often score with her feet. The Eagles tall, sophomore center back is better known for scoring on headers off of free kicks and corners. But it was her feet, not head, that sent the No. 4 Eagles to the sectional semifinal with a 1-0 win against top-ranked Carmel. "Every time we come out here it is so tough," Zionsville head coach Ramon Aguillon said. "For us to come out and play the way we did and get the win tonight — words can't describe how proud of them I am and how they performed. It was amazing." The two teams played back and forth for the first 50 minutes of the game. Zionsville had the better chances in the second half, with Madilyn Mann, Pooh Lewis and Hannah Timbrook all having chances to break the 0-0 tie. Finlly, Schmidt put the Eagles ahead with a little more than 26 minutes remaining. Rachael Bellefuil took a corner kick that bounced off a couple of heads but wasn't cleared. Schmidt was able to find the ball at her feet and kick it into the net. "She was getting a little frustrated because she had scored four goals off corners and she really wanted one," Aguillon said. "I told her to keep on working at it and sure enough she got one. It wasn't a clean header or anything, she just fought for the ball and got it in. It was pure effort right there." That was the last serious chance to score for the Eagles. For more of this story, read Wednesday's Lebanon Reporter.
