Logan Woosley assist to Tyler Smith, wasn't enough to secure the win.
Ninety one days. From the first practice, until the final whistle…that’s how long this team worked and trusted each other on and off the field. This team overcame adversity, played through injuries and battled with some of the best in the state. They proved that Bishop Brossart Soccer is a team others should fear.
The Mustangs secured a bye in the 10th Region Tourney after claiming the 37th District Champs title with a win over the CCHS Camels on October 7th. This gave the team a full week to gain focus, rest their injuries, and develop a game plan before taking on Montgomery County on October 14th. The Indians were no stranger, considering the two teams played just two weeks prior at the MAC on September 30th and tied 1-1.
Montgomery County entered the game with similar momentum, after blowing out Mason County on Tuesday, 10-0. They took to the field in their blue and white vertically-striped shirts and the Mustangs took their shape in white jerseys.
Knowing that MoCo had several offensive weapons, the Mustangs altered their game plan and shifted a few players to less familiar positions. Several Mustangs were also nursing injuries sustained from recent hard fought games.
The Mustangs found themselves down 2-0 until Logan Woosley set up Tyler Smith for our lone goal with just about 2 minutes left in the game. Logan Rauen and the defense made several key stops during the game but the Indians were able to slip 2 goals into the back of net, sending the Indians to the finals. They went on to beat Harrison County in the championship game, then lost to Covington Catholic in the first round of the State Tournament.
While the result wasn’t what this team was hoping for or deserved, they fought hard and left it all out on the field.
As a result of their efforts,
