Logan girls soccer drops match to Kokomo

Logansport’s girls soccer team lost a 4-1 decision to visiting Kokomo on Tuesday.

The Berries’ lone goal was on a Whitney Jennings free kick from 30 yards out that went just over the goalie’s head that made it a 3-1 game with 23:50 remaining. But the Wildkats later added another goal.LHS coach Todd Reiff said a key to the game was the Wildkats capitalized on an early corner kick while the Berries did not.“I really feel this is a tale of one goal — the first one we missed and the first one they made,” Reiff said.But the Logan coach wasn’t pleased with his squad’s overall effort in the first half, when it trailed 2-0 at the break.“We played a pretty poor first half. We couldn’t get into any rhythm at all. They were winning the 50/50 balls,” Reiff said. “We just didn’t come out as aggressive as we needed to.“The second half I thought we did a better job winning some of the 50/50 balls, but we’re not getting the ball where we need to finish.”It was the Berries’ final home match of the season, although they celebrated senior night last week. Reiff said he didn’t want to have to deal with any distractions for the match against Kokomo, which is always a big rivalry game.The two teams could meet again next week at the Class 2A Kokomo Sectional. The Berries (7-7, 3-3 North Central Conference) will meet the Marion-Kokomo winner at 7 p.m. on Oct. 10.“We’ve got a long time to work on it. We don’t play till next Thursday so we have a lot of time to fix some things,” Reiff said. “We’ll get it right and we’ll get ready to have a competitive game the next game we play.”Boys soccerLogansport 3, Kokomo 1Logansport improved to 2-9 and 2-4 in the NCC with the win at Kokomo.Orlando Casimiro, Luis Gonzalez and Edgar Rodriquez each scored a goal for the Berries.“We gave Kokomo a lot of opportunities to take charge of the game in the first half,” Logansport coach Mike Turner said. “But with five minutes left to play, we scored, so it was 1-0 at half. In the second half, Gonzalez scored to make it 2-0. Rodriguez scored the third goal as the Kokomo goalie came out high. He was committed outside his box. “It was a good game.”The Berries travel to Northwestern on Thursday. Manchester 6, Winamac 0Winamac goalie Austen Brown had 10 saves, and Adam Wallace added five.Winamac did have 12 shots on goal, but none of them went through the net.“The kids gave it all they had, and the game started to get away,” Winamac coach Mark Eber said. “They were able to keep their heads up and play some good, clean, fairly solid soccer. They are a spirited group, and they made me proud playing so tough.”Western 2, Carroll 0The Cougars drop to 7-7-1 after being shut out by the Panthers.Carroll’s goalie Seth Eldridge had five saves in the loss.VolleyballS. Central 3, Winamac 0Winamac dropped to 14-11 with the loss on the road. Bethany Brogdon had 22 digs for the Warriors. Taylor Jones dished 17 assists. Ashley Eichelberger had 10 kills and Savanna Button added seven.“Our hitting continues in the negative percentages and it’s hard to win games with negative hitting,” Winamac coach Cathy DeFries said. “Our hitters are going to have to figure some things out to get us out of this slump. Defensively I think we are playing pretty well. Our blocking and digging is decent at times we just need to find a way to get the offense engaged now. When we put it all together it looks good.”On Monday Winamac outlasted Triton 22-25, 25-23, 25-13, 22-25, 17-15.“It was a hard-fought game on both sides of the net,” DeFries said. “Our girls played with a lot of heart. We fought through a lot of mistakes again. [In the fifth game] we were down 10-6, and came back to win it 17-15. Taylor Jones had an outstanding game for us with her serving and setting. We are still working the kinks with our offense, but our defensive game is pretty tough right now.”Jones led Winamac with 23 assists, 18 digs and four aces. Eichelberger added 20 digs, 12 kills and four aces. Button came up with 19 kills, 15 digs and three blocks. Jaclyn Jacobs contributed with 10 digs, four blocks and four aces.
