Over the weekend, the varsity boys' soccer team travelled to Center Grove play in the Trojan Classic. In the first game, the Bulldogs squared off against the host, #12 ranked Center Grove. The Trojans scored two goals early to take a 2-0 lead, and a Jacob Risser penalty kick cut the deficit to 2-1 going into half-time. A refocused, relentless second half performance had the Bulldogs find the net three more times on a goal by Max Harris and two by Gavin Waltz to defeat the Trojans 4-2.
In the championship game against Elkhart Memorial, the Bulldogs gave up a goal in the first two minutes to go down 1-0, but goals by Brock Holder, Jacob Risser, and Axel Perez gave the 'Dogs a 3-1 half-time lead. Elkhart netted a goal in the final minute to end the game 3-2. The Bulldogs hoisted the trophy and moved to 3-1 on the season. They return to action Tuesday in their HCC opener at home against defending conference champion HSE.
