LINCOLN CITY, Ind. - Ho! Ho! Ho! Merry Christmas.

Well not quite.

No. 1-ranked Lawrenceburg's girls soccer team (17-2-0) traveled to near Santa Claus, Ind., Saturday, keeping their state championship hopes alive with a 3-2 overtime shootout win over No. 3 Heritage Hills for their third Class A regional championship in four years.

It was no gift for Coach Bill Offutt's Lady Tigers (17-2-0), who had to go an extra two seven-minute OT periods, then to the penalty kick tiebreaker, where they came out on top 4-2.

But it turned out to be a Sweetest Day celebration for LHS. By downing the previously unbeaten Patriots (17-1-1 final), Tigers earned a semistate first-round match against another unbeaten club, No. 7 Triton Central (19-0), this coming Saturday in the Evansville Mater Dei semistate (11 a.m.).

SELLERSBURG - Zach Steuer rushed for 201yards and four touchdowns to lead Lawrenceburg football to its seventh-straight win, 42-28 at Class 4A Silver Creek Friday.

Now 7-2 heading to this week’s Class 3A Sectional 30 first-round matchup at Guerin Catholic (6-3), coach Ryan Knigga’s Tigers got off to a fast start - taking a 13-0 first-quarter lead over the Dragons and expanding it to 35-14 at halftime.

In a contest that turned into a bit of a track meet, LHS defense held off Silver Creek’s balanced attack (211 rush yards, 196 passing to the Tigers’ 250 and 116), while big plays helped make the 2-1/2 hour bus ride home a pleasant one.

OSGOOD - Leading No. 4-ranked Clarksville Providence 1-0 at halftime, after outshooting the Pioneers 6-0 in the first 40 minutes, Lawrenceburg boys soccer must have had visions of another regional title game spot.

But it wasn't to be for coach Dewayne Uhlman's 15th-ranked Tigers (13-5-1 final), who took a 3-2 Class A regional semifinal round loss with Providence (13-5-2) coming to life in the second half Thursday night at Jac-Cen-Del.

With the four-team regional moved from Switzerland County - where the Pacers' fledgling football program and heavy rain had made the field unplayable for soccer - perennial contender Providence will take on Trinity Lutheran, of Seymour, for the regional title Saturday at 12 noon.

Trinity's Cougars went to an overtime shootout to defeat Southwestern (Hanover) 3-2 (2-0 penalty kicks) in Thursday' regional opener.

LAWRENCEBURG - Lawrenceburg varsity volleyball made Senior Night even more memorable with last Thursday's conference title-clinching 3-0 victory over visiting Batesville.

Moving to 25-2 overall, coach Staci Knigga's Lady Tiger spikers defeated the state-ranked Bulldogs for the second time this season to cap a 13-1 Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference slate.

With two regular season road matches left prior to Saturday's always-tough Union County Invitational, LHS can do no worse than tie for its first league championship since 2011.

Having lost only to East Central in league play, Tigers could win their first outright crown ever should the Lady Trojans (11-1) slip in either of their final two conference matches.

'MUD BOWL' WIN ANSWERS QUESTIONS FOR TIGERS, 12-0 PDF Print E-mail

Wednesday, October 15, 2014 12:40 PM

LAWRENCEBURG - Lawrenceburg’s 12-0 win over Connersville in the Dick Meador Stadium/Neary Memorial Field “Pit” Friday, henceforth, will be known as the latest version of the “Mud Bowl.”

The sixth consecutive win by the host Tigers (6-2), it also answered a big question in terms of who’ll merit Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference postseason honors.

LHS senior running back Zach Steuer dominated in Friday’s matchup of two of the league’s premier 1,000-yard rushers, carrying the slippery pigskin 23 times for a net 148 yards (6.4 per carry) and a nine-yard touchdown in the first quarter.

Spartans senior Colton Gonzalez, the 2013 EIAC 4A Division Offensive Player of the Year and as tough a runner as anyone in the area, struggled in the muck against Lawrenceburg’s formidable defense. He finished with 18 touches for 32 yards, averaging 1.8 per carry.

15TH-RANKED L'BURG BOYS 3-0 SECTIONAL CHAMPION PDF Print E-mail

LAWRENCEBURG - It's been a pleasantly surprising year for a young Lawrenceburg boys soccer crew. And it will continue.

Coach Dewayne Uhlman's 15th-ranked Tigers (13-4-1), captured their first Class A sectional championship since 2012, and eighth overall, 3-0 over No. 22 Rising Sun Saturday night at home.

For its efforts, Lawrenceburg - which regularly starts six sophomores - gets a regional semifinal round matchup with No. 4 Providence (12-5-2) in the second match at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at Switzerland County.

Trinity Lutheran takes on Southwestern (Hanover) (15-1-2) in the 5:30 p.m. opener at Vevay. Class A regional final kicks off at 12 noon next Saturday.

ORVC champion Rising Sun (13-3-2) held LHS to a single first-half goal in Saturday's sectional final. But attrition quickly took its toll in the second period.

RISING SUN - No. 1-ranked Lawrenceburg girls had the easiest weekend of all four Dearborn County high school soccer sectional champions.

Now 16-2-0, coach Bill Offutt's Lady Tigers - who dispatched No. 11 Oldenburg Academy, the only rival with a realistic shot, 3-0 in last Wednesday's weather-delayed first round - beat South Ripley 8-1 Thursday and Switzerland County 8-0 to achieve their fourth consecutive crown.

Saturday afternoon's Sectional 45 final 8-0 rout of surprise foe Switzerland County showcased the Tigers' superior speed, skill and tourney seasoning yet again. LHS was credited with 48 shots on goal, 30 of which centered on frame, keeping Swiss goalkeeper Eve Galbreath busy to the tune of 22 saves.

"We played well Saturday," Offutt said. "It was an opportunity to get everyone in the game and rest some players after playing back-to-back nights both Wednesday and Thursday. Switzerland County's keeper had a great game and turned away some quality shots."
