Prep roundup, Sept. 29

NW's Thor takes top honors at New Haven XC Classic.


Western 3, McCutcheon 0

The Panthers broke away from a scoreless tie at halftime to beat the visiting Mavericks. Mason May scored two goals, Chris Root had a goal and an assist and Chris Carter had an assist. Goalkeeper Edgar Sanchez had five saves and also had a long feed that set up the Panthers’ final goal.

“It was a great team defensive effort, which pretty much led to the 3-0 second half,” Western coach Mike Roe said. “The first half, we came out of the gate a little slow. In the second half, we were able to come out and win the 50-50 balls and put a little more pressure on them, string together some passes and that led to Western being able to break down their defense.”

Western (10-2-1) plays Eastern on Monday.


Wabash Invitational

Taylor went 2-1 and finished as runner-up in the four-team gathering. Bethany Christian beat Taylor 3-2 and went on to win the invitational. The Titans bounced back to beat Eastern and Wabash, both by 3-2 scores.

No. 1 singles player Jack Lipchik and the No. 1 doubles team of Austin Douglas and Cole Schroeder led Taylor with 3-0 showings. No. 2 singles player Camden Kimbler had a 2-1 record with his loss coming in the opening match.

“This is really a nice thing for us to get ready for the sectional, for us to go out and have to play against three teams in one day,” Taylor coach Dave Wise said. “Overall, it was a pretty good day for us.”

Wise noted Lipchik had an outstanding day.

“It’s hard to explain how well he is playing,” Wise said. “That first match of the day [against Bethany Christian] was an excellent match and it was 6-1, 6-0. The Wabash coach couldn’t believe it.”

Taylor closes the regular season with a 12-3 overall record and a share of the Mid-Indiana Conference title. The Kokomo Sectional draw is Monday and play begins Wednesday.
