Eagles advance through IHSAA Class 1A Soccer Sectional #56

Gary Franklin

The Jac-Cen-Del Eagles battled to an exciting and decisive Saturday, October 10, 6-1 victory over the Hauser Jets in the final stanza to earn themselves a Sectional #56 Championship Title. The opportunity to advance through extended Sectional boys soccer action and gain a Regional invitation became reality for the Eagles following completion of the regulation game action at JCDHS, with JCD drawing first blood in the contest off a score by senior Tyler Huff. Earning the first point seemed pressing for JCD, however, Hauser responded quickly to knot the score at one. As the game progressed, JCD’s domination capabilities became evident leading to five more Eagle scores to none by the Jets to a solid 6-1 victory.

JCD Eagle Tyler Huff

Jac-Cen-Del Eagle senior Tyler Huff (4) catches much attention as he is attempting to continue his goal shot run drive.

A slow start for the Eagles in the championship contest left some wondering about the games finish; however, a second half more closely like the customary charge of the Eagles quickly signified a better feeling about the outcome. Senior Huff scored a pair of goals in the first half, the second with just 15 seconds remaining in the opening half. Eagle points scored during the contest on Saturday were added as follows: Tyler Huff - 3 goals, Romain Lumeau - 2 goals with one on a PK, and Trent Linville - 1 goal. Maverick Dwenger had 2 assists, Reis Allen 2 assists, and Romin Lumeau 1 assist.

The Wednesday evening, October 7, JCDHS hosted IHSAA Boys Soccer Sectional #56 action found Coach Derek Jones’ Eagles out-hustling and outlasting their season long state ranked (as high as #4) Oldenburg Academy Twister opponents to the final count of 3-2 by the end of regulation action. Persistent and unrelenting Eagle attacks by senior Tyler Huff ,the Iron-man on the field, who played with intensity, along with his teammates, dominated ball control on offense from the get go, eventually allowing JCD to register opening scoreboard progression to a 1-0 advantage off the foot of foreign exchange student Romain Lumeau (6).

The positive beginning by JCD, however, met with disillusionment near the nine minute mark, as a poorly cleared ball from the Eagle goal allowed a short kick being directly returned into JCD’s net, knotting the game at one, where it remained until early in second half play. Relatively early in the game one second half action, senior Eagle Tyler Huff (4) delivered a goal score to regain JCD the edge at 2-1. A later additional Eagle score allowed some breathing room with a 3-1 advantage, again made by Lumeau (6). With JCD defense clearly to the ball with time to spare and ready to clear the ball up-field, an miss-connection allowed a second Twisters score from short range, closing the Eagles’ edge to just one point at 2-3, and obviously too much time remaining on the clock to feel comfortable about the security of the win. Again, Eagles dominance with the ball on offense over the final minutes of the game prevailed, proving to be the needed recipe to sustain the victory and advance to the championship round against either the Hauser Jets or the Trinity Lutheran Cougars, battlers of opening night game two action.

An obvious overlooked and underrated JCD Eagle team had made their first notch in the extended season belt of 2015 road to success. Monday’s game two action resulted in a Trinity Lutheran Cougar 1-0 edge at the end of first half action; however, that wouldn't hold to deliver them the victory by the end of the contest, as the Hauser Jets mastered the opportunity to move on to the championship game by a final count of TL 2 - Hauser 3, following a pair of hard fought OT stanzas.
