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.).

 
JOYFUL TEARS MARK EC GIRLS' 10TH REGIONAL TITLE

ST. LEON - There were as many tears as cheers immediately after East Central’s 10th girls soccer regional championship win Saturday.

Moments after coach Jim Lockwood’s 22nd-ranked Lady Trojans (16-2-2) scored a 1-0 (4-2 PK) overtime shootout thriller over previously unbeaten No. 20 New Castle (18-1), the longtime head coach addressed his team.

Lockwood, who has coached the EC girls to all but one of those 10 semi state berths - including this coming Saturday’s Class 2A Final Eight matchup with unranked Castle (13-5-1) at Evansville Harrison (11 a.m. local time) - spoke to his huddled team as cheers gave way to silence briefly.

“Almost a year ago to the day I was in the hospital (following triple-bypass heart surgery),” Lockwood said. “Several of you (indicating players) came to visit, and I didn’t know who you were or where I was.

 
SD BOYS HARRIERS, EC'S BITTNER TO CC SEMISTATE

AURORA - South Dearborn boys cross country earned yet another trip to the semistate with a fifth-place team finish in Saturday's IHSAA regional on the home course.

So did precocious East Central freshman Abby Bittner, who placed 10th among girls regional individual finishers to crack the top 15 necessary to advance to this coming Saturday's Carmel semistate.

Coach Jeremy Baney's host Knights boys harriers nailed down the fifth and final team qualifying spot with a score of 127, led by 12th-place all-regional senior Jared Davis, who timed 17:27 for the 5K (3.1-mile) event.

 
EC FOOTBALL PAYS BACK RONCALLI, 30-27 (2 OT)

ST. LEON - East Central football paid back a decade-old debt owed to arch-nemesis Indianapolis Roncalli Friday with a sweet 30-27 double-overtime victory at Trojan Field.

Current Trojans - now 6-3 with a six-game winning streak heading to this Friday's Class 4A Sectional 23 playoff opener at Greenwood (4-5) - probably don't remember how Roncalli (4-5) stuck EC with back-to-back playoff heartbreakers in the 2002 4A regional and 2003 semistate, both in overtime.

But Friday's comeback win, after trailing by 10 with just over two minutes left in regulation time, had to be satisfying for senior coaching staff members, as well as Trojan fans everywhere.

"I sure this was pretty enjoyable for Tim (longtime line coach Behlmer)," said second-year EC head coch Justin Roden. "He's experienced some ups and downs against Roncalli. We lost to them in overtime here two years ago, mainly because we were so banged up. This was a fun night for our young kids."

 
L'BURG SLAYS DRAGONS, 42-38 - STEUER RUSHES FOR 201, 4 TDS

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.

 
TROJAN SPIKERS CO-CHAMPS AT 13-1 IN LEAGUE

ST. LEON - East Central volleyball locked up a conference co-championship with Thursday's 25-10, 25-11, 25-8 home court victory over Franklin County.

Coach Cassie Laker's Lady Trojan spikers, now 26-6 overall heading to Class 4A sectional play at Columbus East this Saturday, completed a 13-1 Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference run for the school's 13th league title, the program's first since the fall 2011 season.

All three levels of EC volleyball marked EIAC championships this season, including an undefeated freshman team and one-loss junior varsity crew.

 
BULL DOGS BITE EC BOYS AGAIN, 2-1 IN SOCCER REGIONAL

Monday, October 20, 2014 1:46 PM

COLUMBUS, Ind. - East Central boys soccer got off to a slow start when it could least afford to in last Thursday's Class 2A regional at No. 12 Columbus North.

Coach B.J. Black's Trojans (9-7-2 final) gave up two first-half goals to the home pitch favorite Bull Dogs (14-3-2).

EC got one of those scores back in the second half, on junior Grant Williams's goal, off a bang-bang pass from Kurt Fox. But the Trojans' season ended on that 2-1 tally for yet another regional loss to North.

Columbus North outshot East Central 14-2, scoring initially at 17:52 in the first half. Bull Dogs' last-second goal, just :01 before halftime, proved the difference-maker.

Trivia

Q: Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning broke the NFL's all-time record for touchdown passes with his 509th in Sunday night's 42-17 win over the 49ers. Holder of 40 NFL individual passing records, what major mark is still in sight for Manning?

ANSWER BELOW


Today in ... 

2007 – Tom Brady throws six touchdown passes to lead the New England Patriots to a 49-28 demolition of Miami at Dolphin Stadium. Brady fires five of his TD tosses in the first half for a 42-7 advantage. In the first quarter, he hits wide receiver Donte Stallworth for a score covering 30 yards and flips tight end Kyle Brady (no relation) at two-yard TD pass. During the second period, WR Randy Moss crosses the goal line twice, on throws of 35 and 50 yards. Slot receiver Wes Welker nabs another TD of 14 yards. Brady sets a franchise record, recording his sixth touchdown, with a 16-yard strike to Welker. Overall, Brady completes 21 of 25 passes for 354 yards. The victory is New England's seventh en route to a 16-0 regular season.

 

Birthdays

Packers/Colts center Bill Curry, born 1942. Lions quarterback Joey Harrington, born 1978.


TRIVIA ANSWER:

A: Surpassing Brett Favre's career 508 TD passes Sunday - actually moving to 510 with four vs. San Francisco - Manning could still reach Favre's all-time record of 71,838 passing yards. He was 5,344 yards shy after Sunday.
