TIGER SPIKERS COLLECT 30TH WIN IN SECTIONAL OPENER PDF Print E-mail

BROOKVILLE - Lawrenceburg volleyball marked its 30th win of the season while halting Batesville's nine-year championship streak in Thursday night's IHSAA Class 3A Sectional 29 opener at Franklin County.

Lady Tiger spikers of coach Staci Knigga, amazingly unranked despite their 30-4 record, dispatched Batesville's Lady Bulldogs (17-17 final) with surprising ease in the EIAC rivals' third meeting this season, 25-16, 25-16, 25-12.

Bulldogs, deprived of a shot at their program's 15th all-time sectional title, saw Lawrenceburg advance to Saturday's 11 a.m. semifinal round match against South Dearborn (9-15), a 3-1 winner over Rushville in Thursday's second first-round match.

Tiger spikers are a heavy favorite to capture their first sectional crown since 2005, and fourth in school history, should they keep going to Saturday's 7 p.m. championship round.

SWEET DAY FOR NO. 1 L'BURG GIRLS SOCCER - DEFEAT PATRIOTS ON PK FOR 3RD FINAL 8 PDF Print E-mail

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.
