Soccer Sectional 60 championship
Jac-Cen-Del Eagles denied in penalty kick shoot-out by Oldenburg Academy Twisters

Gary Franklin

The 2014 IHSAA Soccer Sectional action for the JCD Eagles led by Coach Mark Jones was played at Hauser High School. Final Eagles season records included an overall record of 11-5-2 and an ORVC (Ohio River Valley Conference) record at 8-3-1. Jac-Cen-Del defeated the hosting Hauser Jets to advance to championship game action on Thursday evening, October 9, where they met and fell victim to, the Oldenburg Academy Twisters. The championship left no stone unturned, as it went through two extra periods and ended in a penalty kick (PK) shoot out.

Eagles fall to Twisters in
Sectional Championship

The first half of championship action was played to a scoreless tie. The second half, however, found an unassisted goal shot by Eagle Tyler Huff ringing the bell for a JCD 1-0 lead. Coach Jones altered his strategy to protecting the one point lead and moved Huff to a defensive position. All worked well until the 1:13 mark on the score board clock, when OA knotted the game at 1. The two seven minute overtime periods developed no further scoring sending the contest into a PK Shoot-out. In a PK Shoot-out, each team delegates a goalkeeper, and five players to take a penalty kick shot each, alternating team to team, until one team or the other establishes a win. If not determined in the first five shooters of the process, another five are set to try their luck. The second set of shooters was not needed in this particular game, as OA managed to out-score JCD with all five shooters scoring while JCD had acquired a miss on their third shooter’s attempt that missed wide right.

Game Over
Oldenburg Academy moves on to Regional action as the 2-1 victor on paper. Following the conclusion of the game, JCD Eagle Coach Mark Jones stated, “I’m very proud of how hard and well my team played. They wanted to win and knew that they could win. They were not intimidated by Oldenburg’s high ranking at 9th. They are a great group of kids that I enjoyed being around. They are a credit to their school and their families.” Another season passes meaning another group of seniors will move on with their spring graduation exercises. This year’s Eagle seniors include: Blake Straub (12), Eli Wagner (19), Riley Thomas (14), Keith Simon (23), Thiago Kronemberg–Kapps (22) and Cameron Horan (24).

Eagle Journey Just Prior to Sectional games
JCD vs. South Ripley

Regular season action ended on senior night for JCD, Friday, October 3, in a game against the visiting South Ripley Raiders for a varsity game and a JV half. The Eagles won the varsity game 4-1 with the JV half ending in a 2-2 tie. Thiago Kronemberg scored three goals while adding an assist. Blake Straub had a goal and an assist. Devon Wilson played in goal for JCD. Avery Halcomb was goalkeeper for SR. The JCD overall record advanced to 10-4-2 with an ORVC conference record at 8-3-1.

JCD vs. Sw Hanover
On October 2, JCD traveled to Hanover for a varsity soccer game against the Rebels. Jac-Cen-Del fell by a final count of 1-4 despite scoring first on a Blake Straub goal from a nice pass from Tyler Huff; however, Southwestern knotted the score before halftime. Nearly half way through the second half, SwH added two quick goals with JCD unable to counter. The SwH team scored their fourth point just before the game ended. Note: Despite a very positive JCD season run to the end, a Rising Sun win over Southwestern on Friday solidified the Shiners the 2014 ORVC title. Jac-Cen-Del finished a disappointing third.
