Royals make Arabians first victims

PENDLETON — The Hamilton Southeastern Royals came into Pendleton with a deceiving 0-3 record in boys’ soccer but walked off the field with their first victory of the season.

The Royals soccer team can chalk up two of those losses to the second- and third-rated teams in the state. They dropped a 4-0 decision to No. 2 Avon and a 3-0 loss to No. 3 Carmel with their other loss at the feet of Lafayette Harrison before notching a 3-0 win over Pendleton Heights.

Liam Kane got Hamilton Southeastern on the board in the first eight minutes of the match, and Alex Fearing gave them a commanding 2-0 lead with 2:37 before the intermission.

At the 16-minute mark of the second half it was Brec Musselman who scored to give the visitors all the goals they needed to score their first win of the season.

Arabians (4-2-1) coach Kyle Davy said that despite Hamilton Southeastern being a great team he felt like his kids weren’t keeping the ball on the opponents side of the field enough.

“You’ve got to give them credit, I mean they’re a great team,” he said. “We definitely were a little off tonight. They didn’t possess the ball like they have in past games. (We) just didn’t get into our groove at all, so that definitely hurt us.”

Davy said that he didn’t have an explanation for why his team couldn’t find their groove, but he said they’ve played a lot of games in a short amount of time. He said the second half of the season gets a little easier with more time off to rest and recuperate.

Pendleton Heights’ coach said that he talked to his team about staying positive with several games still left on the schedule.

“Keep their heads up,” Davy told his team after the match. “We have a long season to go. Just build off of this and go forward with it.”
