H.S. SOCCER: Central handles Berea Community, 4-1

RICHMOND — With a first-place district showdown with Model less than a day away, it would have been easy for the Indians to look past Monday’s game with Berea Community.

But, they didn’t.

Madison Central took care of business, picking up a relatively comfortable 4-1 win over the district rival Pirates in Richmond.

The Indians had a 2-0 lead at halftime, then took out most of their starters.

“They are motivated and they are ready,” Central coach Evan Sutherland said. “They know what tomorrow is. It’s obviously for first place in the district and the No. 1 seed. It’s important to us.”

The Patriots (7-0, 1-0 district) and Central (6-1, 2-0 district) are set to meet today at Model’s field on the EKU campus.

Game time is set for 5 p.m.

It took Central a bit to find the net Monday against Berea, mostly thanks to good goaltending by Trey Terrill. The keeper made several outstanding saves and was extremely busy for the entire half.

“He’s a good keeper,” Sutherland said of Terrill. “He was tough to beat in the opening half. He did a very good job.”

Caleb Crutcher gave the Indians the lead with 16:05 on an assist from Luc Powell.

Seven minutes later, a shot by Dylan Dotson bounced off a Berea defender and into the net.

In the first half, Central out-shot the Pirates, 15-1.

With 26:52 left in the second half, Luke Hall scored off a nice feed from Kestrin Isufi. Ethan Fielder added a goal with 13:29 left.

“We tried to rest some guys and get some younger guys a chance to play in a district game,” Sutherland said. “These guys are going to be coming along in a few years and we are going to need them.”

Derek Castle scored with 6:17 left to get Berea on the board.

Central had 30 shots, many of which were not on net. Addison McCoy had eight shots, while Dotson had five and Grant Willoughby had three.

Ben Durham was in net in the first half for Central and made two save. Levi Knutson was in net in the second half and made four saves.

Worthie McGuire had six blocks for Central.

Berea is set to return to action Saturday against Oneida Baptist in the Berea Cup.
