Shoes score seven against Indians

ALTAMONT — The only knock Teutopolis head coach Dustin Jansen had against his team Tuesday was that they could’ve scored more goals than they did in a 7-0 rout over Altamont/Beecher City.

Teutopolis put 14 shots on goal, seven of which they scored, but had 13 other shots fly over the goal. Jansen said his team needs to shoot a better percentage.

“We have to have a better shooting rate than that,” Jansen said. “When we play these higher caliber teams, we may only have three to five opportunities and we have to capitalize.”

Teutopolis senior Kyle Blievernicht took advantage of his shooting opportunities, scoring three goals in the game. On his first goal, which was the first of the game for the team, he dribbled from midfield to the goal and kicked the ball passed the goalkeeper.

He scored his second goal with seven minutes left in the first half, as a bouncing ball dropped at his feet in front of the goalkeeper and he punched it in.

His third goal was the team’s final of the game, as he launched a ball from just past midfield and scored it over Altamont goalkeeper Adam Doty’s head; however, the seventh goal was insurance, while Altamont head coach Jeff Walton couldn’t get his mind off the first goal.

“Those are the things we have to get better at,” said Walton of the defense against Blievernicht’s first goal. “You have to stay in front of him. The kid shouldn’t be dribbling right down in front of the goal.”

Teutopolis junior Justin Deters scored with ten minutes left in the first half, the ball knocking off of the left post just passed the goalkeeper and sweeping into the net.

Trailing 3-0 to start the second half, Altamont junior Parker Asplin hustled down the right side of the field and crossed the ball to the goal, but the ball trickled out of bounds to the left of Teutopolis goalkeeper Seth Belford.
