Royals halt Eagles’ momentum

Fishers — The Class 2A No. 7 Zionsville Lady Eagles soccer team looked to carry some momentum from this past weekend when it faced No. 2 Hamilton Southeastern Wednesday night.

Unfortunately for the Eagles, it wasn’t to be the case. The Royals scored the game’s lone goal with 11:56 remaining and the Eagles fell to 7-3 on the season with a 1-0 loss.

“I thought we played better in the second half,” Zionsville head coach Ramon Aguillon said. “I thought in the first half wasn’t our best; it took us a long time to get into the game. But once we did, we were right there and the girls played with a lot of effort and energy. Unfortunately we gave up that goal in the final 15 minutes of a conference game.”

Although the game was tied 0-0 at the half, it was Hamilton Southeastern that dominated the flow of play.

The Royals outshot the Eagles 6-3 in the half and forced Catherine Schmidt to make four saves, including a leaping tip save midway through the half.

Aguillon said they talked at halftime about having a better second half.

“We knew it was a big game for us, a big conference game,” Aguillon said. “Our effort had to be better, especially after the way we played this weekend. We just needed to pick up the effort and intensity and they did, which I was happy about. We just have to work on bringing that for 80 minutes, especially against teams like Hamilton Southeastern.”
