BROOKVILLE – Lawrenceburg football pulled off yet another second-half comeback victory, 43-15, after trailing 15-14 at halftime Friday night at Franklin County.

While this one lacked the drama of the previous week's 47-46 shootout over Greensburg, Tigers (3-2 overall) sent Wildcats senior QB Kohl Holmes to the sideline with an ankle injury at 6:37 in the second quarter.

Franklin County was forced to go with sophomore Blake Ripperger (0-7 passing, 3 interceptions) the rest of the way, which was one factor in Lawrenceburg's 29-0 second-half margin.

But it took more than a little nudge to get the LHS offense clicking in the third.

GREENSBURG – With its fourth consecutive win, Lawrenceburg varsity volleyball moved to 12-2 overall, and 6-1 in conference play, with Thursday's 3-0 win at Greensburg.

Coach Staci Knigga's Lady Tigers, who took their lone Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference loss at East Central Sept. 4, dropped a 25-14, 25-22, 25-18 match win on the host Pirates Thursday.

Staying consistent in a season with its share of ups and downs, LHS posted 25 kills, led by nine from junior outside hitter Amber Rox (24-26 attacks), four from senior Paxton Parris (9-10) and three each by Amandalin Hensley, Sophia Sandford, Courtnie Mollaun and Riley Brunner.

Rox's big night on the front line included three solo blocks and two block assists. Brunner and Sandford added three solo blocks apiece.

STILL NO. 1, LADY TIGERS BOUNCE BACK FOR 5-1 WIN PDF Print E-mail
Written by Staff Report   
Wednesday, September 17, 2014 12:34 PM

LAWRENCEBURG – Undeterred by Saturday's first loss of the season, Lawrenceburg girls soccer bounced back with a 5-1 conference win over South Dearborn Tuesday.

Still ranked No. 1 in the state coaches' Class A poll, Lady Tigers (7-1, 4-1 Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference) put away four first-half goals against the Knights.

Sophomore Josie Denton's unassisted goal at 31:18 in the first half got the scoring started for coach Bill Offutt's LHS varsity, which hosts Ohio stateline rivals Harrison tonight (Thursday) and Taylor Saturday at 12 noon.

“We played a solid game for most of both halves,” Offutt said. “Any time we can come away with a win against a rival team it makes for a good evening. South Dearborn is young and will continue to improve this year and into the next few years.”

THE FUTURE IS NOW, 47-46 - TIGERS HOLD OFF PIRATES IN GRIDIRON THRILLER PDF Print E-mail

LAWRENCEBURG – After a 69-68 overtime win vs. Batesville in Neary Stadium's “Pit” during Lawrenceburg's 2011 Class 2A sectional championship season, new head coach Ryan Knigga was asked if such shootouts were the future of football.

“I hope so, if we're the winner,” said Knigga.

History repeated itself, of a sort, Friday. Tigers, now 2-2 overall, took their first step toward what they hope will be the school's first EIAC 3A Division title with a 47-46 barnburner over visiting Greensburg (0-4, 0-1).

At the end of a long, long night at Dick Meador Stadium – which saw the two squads combine for an (unofficial) 858 offensive yards, 348 rushing for the Pirates' option attack, 280 passing and 192 on the ground for the more balanced Tigers – LHS recovered Greensburg's onside kick attempt at its own 45-yard line.

Lawrenceburg QB Sam Fette (18-28 passing, three touchdowns) took a knee three times to run out the clock for the one-point sizzler.

“It was an exciting game, there is no debating that,” said Knigga. That's three years in a row (for close games vs. Greensburg). The only difference was that it was not 21-20 (like Tiger comeback wins in both 2012 and 2013).

FIRST-SHOT GOAL BREAKS ICE FOR LADY TIGERS, 5-0 PDF Print E-mail

BATESVILLE – Lawrenceburg's girls soccer's first shot on goal didn't come until 30:29 in the first half Tuesday night at EIAC rival Batesville.

When junior Peighton Cook's kick settled into the Bulldogs' net, the No. 1-ranked (Class A) Lady Tigers snapped out of their sluggish start en route to a key 5-0 Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference victory.

Now 6-0 overall, coach Bill Offutt's LHS girls varsity moved to 3-0 atop the league standings.

“We had a strong first half after starting out a little sluggish,” Offutt said. “Our first shot on goal by Peighton going in sparked us the rest of the half. We played a solid game against a good Batesville team and were glad to come away with a win at their field.”
