Logansport falls to Marion in boys soccer sectional final

KOKOMO — Logansport’s boys soccer team had its chances, but they were too few and far between. And the Berries didn’t capitalize on those rare chances.

Marion controlled play throughout and came up with the big plays in a 3-0 win over the Berries Saturday night in the Class 2A Kokomo Sectional championship game.

The Giants (14-1-1) won their seventh sectional title in a row and coach Jorge Berry became 7-for-7 in delivering Marion sectional championships.

“I’ve told everybody and I’ll continue to say it, this is the best team I’ve had here at Marion,” Berry said. “I’ve always had good individuals, but this is the best team overall. We work extremely hard.”

Corey Deaton scored two goals and Mitchell Diedrich had a goal and two assists to lead the Giants. Diedrich got them on the board in the game’s 27th minute when he scored on a ricochet from a Kyle Clark shot on a corner kick.

Marion led 1-0 at halftime before Deaton scored on a corner kick by Diedrich four minutes into the second half.

Logan nearly answered just seconds later but had a good look sail over the goal.

Marion goalkeeper Derrick Harvey then made a great tip save in the 56th minute on a shot by Ramon DeLatorre after Pedro Hernandez had set him up with a good look.

“That would have put us right back in it,” Logan coach Mike Turner said. “Then we gave up that third one and it just took the life out of us.”

The third goal came in the 66th minute on a header by Deaton on an assist by Blake Beal following a free kick.

All three of Marion’s goals came on set pieces.

“That’s just something we work on and we have the athletes to be able to do some stuff like that,” Berry said. “Corey Deaton, my sweeper back, is just unbelievable. That’s his 15th goal of the year, I believe, and Mitchell Diedrich had two of those assists. He now has 15 assists.”
