LANDMARK WIN TIGERS' BEST OF SEASON, 2-1 PDF Print E-mail

BLUE ASH, Ohio - It was a Landmark win for Lawrenceburg boys soccer, in more ways than one.

Tuesday's 2-1 second-half comeback victory at Cincinnati Landmark Christian, literally and figuratively, fit the bill for the Tigers, ranked No. 15 in last week's Class A state coaches' poll, who capped their regular season at 11-4-1.

Coach Dewayne Uhlman's LHS varsity spotted the host Eagles a 1-0 halftime lead, on a through-ball breakaway goal at the 29:32 mark, then took over in the second half for one impressive victory against another quality opponent.

"They were a good team and it was probably our best effort of the year," Uhlman said of his young Tigers, who regularly start six sophomores and three juniors, with 3-4 seniors in the regular rotation.

SOCCER TIGERS GET 10TH VICTORY, 2-0 VS. PIRATES PDF Print E-mail

GREENSBURG - It proved too close for comfort most of the way, but Lawrenceburg boys soccer notched its 10th win of the season, 2-0, in conference play at Greensburg Saturday afternoon.

Coach Dewayne Uhlman's No. 13-ranked (Class A) Tigers dominated play, outshooting the host Pirates 27-5 on their Senior Day.

LHS converted single goals in each half, the first coming from sophomore Trevor Lenke, at 15:36, on a penalty kick that followed a Greensburg foul in the box.

Junior Tyler Gilmour gave Lawrenceburg a little breathing room with his head ball goal, off the corner kick by Lenke, with 14:40 remaining in the match.

TIGERS CLINCH 3A TITLE SHARE - WITH DEFENSE PDF Print E-mail

BATESVILLE - Lawrenceburg football clinched no worse than a tie for its first conference title since 1999 in a most unexpected way Friday. With defense.

Outlasting No. 6-ranked Batesville 14-7 on homecoming night for the Bulldogs, Tigers moved to 4-2 overall and 2-0 with one Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference 3A Division game left, this coming Friday, at home, vs. Rushville (2-4).

In a game which saw all its points scored before the halftime festivities, LHS offense proved explosive early and frustrating late - repeatedly spotting Batesville chances in negative field position. Then stopping the Bulldogs and their vintage Wing-T “spinner” attack cold - thanks to five quarterback sacks and three pass interceptions.

"From an offensive perspective, we thought we could put up some points," said LHS head coach Ryan Knigga. "Batesville had a very solid game plan and their linebackers were animals. Our offensive line had a hard time getting off of their defensive linemen, which allowed their backers to run free and make plays. At the end of the day, we just want to win, and 14 points got the job done this week."

LAWRENCEBURG - Wednesday's 3-0 home victory over Rushville moved Lawrenceburg varsity volleyball one step closer to its first Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference title since the fall of 2011.

POISED & DETERMINED - LHS SPIKERS WIN INVITE; DEFEAT EC TO TIE FOR LEAGUE LEAD PDF Print E-mail

LAWRENCEBURG - It was a big weekend, as well as start to this week, for Lawrenceburg volleyball.

Lady Tigers of coach Staci Knigga won their own eight-team Lawrenceburg Invitational tournament title Saturday, going 4-0 for the day, including a 25-16, 25-16 win over Hauser for the championship.

Now 17-2 overall, followed Monday night with the biggest LHS victory of the season so far, 3-1 over visiting East Central to tie the Trojans for the Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference lead, at 7-1.

"The team was very focused all day on winning the tournament (Saturday)," Coach Knigga said. "It was nice to see us play at our level all day."

She continued: "The first time we played EC (3-0 loss at St. Leon Sept. 4), we didn't have our full lineup because of injuries. So we knew, with everyone healthy, we could compete with them."
