ST. LEON – East Central girls soccer avenged its only loss of the season with a 2-0 verdict over Class A No. 1-ranked Lawrenceburg Saturday afternoon.

Now 7-1-1 overall, coach Jim Lockwood's Lady Trojan varsity got a pair of first-half goals from sophomore sensation Lily Heilmayer and held the previously unbeaten Tigers (6-1, 3-1 EIAC) at bay for the remaining 65-plus minutes.

Heilmayer, whose seven goals and six assists this season both lead East Central, scored twice in rapid succession at 28:08 in the first half, assisted by freshman Lizzie Kern, and with 25:22 left to intermission, with senior Kierstin Nadler assisting.

BROOKVILLE – Three county athletes earned girls golf all-conference honors in Saturday's EIAC Tournament at Brook Hill Golf Course.

East Central's Lady Trojans finished fourth as a team (389) behind Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference champion Connersville (357), Batesville (360) and host Franklin County (366).

Batesville's Madison McCreary repeated as conference Most Valuable Player with low medalist score of a two-over par 73.

EC's Skylar McMahon was Dearborn County's top finisher, taking All-EIAC top 12 honors at 89 (43-46) for eighth place individually.

Trojan freshman Kristi Ryan joined McMahon on the all-conference team with a 96 (48-48), tying for 11th place.

South Dearborn senior Anna Hensley placed 10th as an individual at 95 to land a third all-conference spot for the county.

 
THE FUTURE IS NOW, 47-46 - TIGERS HOLD OFF PIRATES IN GRIDIRON THRILLER

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).

 
SPARTANS' SIZE, 'GONZO' TOO MUCH FOR SD, 40-7

CONNERSVILLE – Surprising Connersville (3-1) took a 2-0 lead in the EIAC 4A Division football standings with a 40-7 rout of South Dearborn Friday night.

Spartans senior runningback Colton Gonzalez rushed 32 times for 148 of the hosts' 275 ground yards, scoring four touchdowns.

Speedy classmate Micah Kelley broke a 41-yard TD run initially, later catching a 15-yard TD pass from quarterback Tyler Kendall, as Connersville built a 27-0 halftime lead en route to rattling off the first 40 points in the contest.

“Connersville played a solid game from start to finish with few errors,” said SD coach Chris Nobbe, whose Knights (1-3, 0-1 EIAC 4A) were limited to 146 yards total offense, with starting QB Wyatt Schwing sidelined by an injury early.

LAWRENCEBURG - Lawrenceburg Speedway’s Night of Champions, final points night for the 2014 racing season, crowned four new champs Saturday night.

Guilford’s Shawn Westerfeld, Rising Sun’s Scotty Kincaid, Aurora’s Scott Hensley and 17-year old Dalton Roark of Dupont reign as track champions in the four race car divisions after another eventual night of competition on the 3/8-mile high-banked oval.

Westerfeld dominated the 25-lap Lawrenceburg Chevrolet Sprint Car feature. As he caught lapped traffic, Justin Grant was able to catch up and put pressure on Westerfeld’s No. 89 car.

Trivia

Q: University of Cincinnati quarterback Gunner Kiel threw for 418 yards and six touchdowns in his college football debut, a 58-34 win over Toledo, Friday night. Who holds the UC school record for touchdown passes in a single game?

A: Kiel's six TD passes tied the Bearcats' school record, set by Tony Pike in UC's 49-36 win over Illinois on Nov. 27, 2009, at Nippert Stadium.

 

Today in …

1924 – Cardinals first baseman Jim Bottomley collects six hits in six at-bats and sets a major league record for most RBI in a game, with 12, during a 17-3 thrashing of the Dodgers at Ebbets Field in Brooklyn. In the first inning, “Sunny Jim” connects for a two-run single off Rube Ehrhardt. In the second, Bottomley raps out an RBI double against Bonnie Hollingsworth. Art Decatur gives up a grand slam home run in the fourth to Bottomley, plus a two-run homer in the sixth. He smacks a two-run single off Tex Wilson in the seventh for his 10th and 11th runs batted in of the afternoon. Bottomley's 12th RBI comes on a base hit off Jim Roberts, the fifth Brooklyn pitcher. Cardinals outfielder Mark Whitten ties Bottomley's record on Sept. 7, 1993, with a four-home run game against the Cincinnati Reds. Bottomley is elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame posthumously by the Veterans Committee in 1974.

BACK IN THE RUNNING - PATTON RUSHES FOR 4 TDS, PASSES FOR ONE IN 37-13 WIN

ST. LEON - Having experienced the downside of a high school football mismatch the previous weekend, East Central’s Trojans got the opposite view in Friday’s 37-13 conference win over Franklin County.

With their first win of the season after yet another 0-3 start, Coach Justin Roden’s EC varsity bounced back from its 48-8 shelling at Cincinnati LaSalle Sept. 5 to take their first step toward an Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference 4A Division title repeat.

Junior quarterback Luke Patton - East Central’s top passer and best running threat - scored four rushing touchdowns and threw for one more as the host Trojans handled FC’s Wildcats from the get-go.

Franklin County (2-2, 0-2 EIAC 4A) opened badly, with Josh Orschell driving the first quarter kickoff out of bound for a penalty.

 
KERN'S GOAL WITH 27:30 WINS I-74 RIVALRY MATCH
Written by Staff Report   
Friday, September 12, 2014 9:48 AM

HARRISON, Ohio – East Central's I-74 border rivalry with Harrison usually makes sparks fly, and Thursday night's girls soccer matchup was no exception.

EC's Lady Trojans, now 6-1-1 overall, won a 1-0 nailbiter on an early second-half goal by freshman Lizzie Kern.

Kern, who picked a perfect time to score her first first goal, put away the shot with 27:30 remaining, off the assist by sophomore Lily Heilmayer.

Senior keeper Abby Ashton and the Trojan defense held on for the shutout victory, the third this season for the EC girls varsity. Ashton worked all 80 minutes in goal, registering nine saves.
