Fishers shuts out Arabians for sectional crown

FISHERS — The Pendleton Heights girls soccer team was rewarded after Thursday night's 6-0 win over Anderson with a chance to play Class 2A, No. 5 Fishers for the sectional championship.

Pendleton Heights (9-9) held its own for the first 36 minutes, but when the Tigers (12-2-3) got rolling they didn’t stop. They got four goals between the 36-minute mark of the first half and three-minute mark of the second half on the way to a 6-0 shutout victory Saturday night at Hamilton Southeastern.

The Arabians played in defensive mode most of the game, and it resulted in them not getting the ball past midfield until the 34-minute mark of the opening half and registering only three shots on goal.

Pendleton Heights coach Mark Davy said he told his girls before the match to leave it all out on the field, and he feels like they did just that.

“I told them, ‘all I want is all you got,' and they gave me all they had,” Davy said. “That’s all I can ask for as a coach.”

When the wheels started falling off for the Arabians, their coach said one of the main reasons was the exhaustion of chasing a team full of top-notch players.

“I know we were just dead tired from playing 40 minutes of basically chasing them around,” said Davy. “We did miss the mark. We didn’t shift unfortunately, and they scored one. We kind of let down for the second one.”

Fishers has about 23 players in its lineup and was able to stay fresh with multiple substitutions. Davy said his girls are close to the same level from an athletic standpoint, but the Arabians experience a bit of a drop in talent compared to a program like the Tigers run.

“I think they have about 23 girls – all at the same level,” he said. “Not that our girls aren’t far off, but we do have a little drop off there.”

    Early in Thursday night's practice at Anderson University, Colts tight end Coby Fleener found himself running free behind the defense in 11-on-11 drills.

    Bjoern Werner's rookie training camp was rather quiet. The German-born outside linebacker went through individual drills and worked hard in full-team sessions, but he was overwhelmed by all the new information he was processing. And it was holding him back. When the season started, Werner was further set back by a foot injury that cost him three games, and he finished the year with just 2.5 sacks. Then the former Florida State star went to work.

  • SPT - HB0731 - Colts Camp - Fleener - 206 Colts focusing on situational improvement One year ago, the focus in Indianapolis Colts training camp was on turnovers. The team had committed far too many in 2012 and was determined not to repeat its mistakes. The theme at Anderson University carried over to the field, and the Colts' 14 turnovers were the fewest in the NFL last year.
