Second-half push sees Logansport win opener

Berries overcome shaky start to reach soccer sectional final

(Continued)

Kokomo —

The Berries (7-10) hit the woodwork twice on long-range efforts in the second half before scoring. A short drop pass set up Tavares deep in the box but his shot crashed against the crossbar and out in the 68th minute. Then a long, speculative ball by Heath Vincent found the right upright just two minutes before the Berries scored their winner.

Logan finally grabbed the lead in the 76th minute. With the Berries possessing the ball in the Western defensive third, Ramon DeLatorre crossed to Tavares, who controlled the ball, then stabbed it home from inside the box.

Western (11-4-1) still had chances in the second half, but not nearly as many. Kinnaman made two saves in the second half. Sanchez only had one as the action evened out in the final 40 minutes.

“It was a mental adjustment, get back to possessing the ball, no more mistakes from the goalkeeper, finish — we finished in the first 45 seconds — and start possessing,” Turner said. “Possession is the difference. Once we started possessing the ball it started creating opportunities for us, and it took opportunities away from them, plus it gives us more confidence. We had to give up a goal to get rid of the nerves and then make the mental adjustment to play the way we can play.

“I’m glad we gave it up in the first half, because if we gave it up in the second half, it would have been a different story.”

Kinnaman had a much lighter workload in the second half, thanks to improved play on defense from the backline and midfield.

“[Logan’s defenders] were a little more aggressive winning the ball and mids [were] making defensive runs,” Turner said. “In the first half, I thought they were trailing because their possession was better than ours. Second half, I thought the mid defending was better and it took away some of their possession, and it helped our defense make plays on the ball.”
