Sidney boys edged by Vandalia


Staff report

VANDALIA — Sidney fell out of contention in the Greater Western Ohio Conference American North standings after dropping a tough 2-1 verdict at Vandalia Tuesday in boys soccer action.

The loss dropped the Jackets to 6-3-0 in the North and 9-4-0 overall heading into a game at Northmont Saturday.

“It was a very close game that could have gone either way,” said Sidney coach Daniel Wicks. “We went up with about 20 minutes left in the game, but we allowed two goals on set pieces, failed to capitalize on our chances, and that was ultimately the deciding factor. But we will learn from our mistakes.”

Sidney’s goal was scored by Jalen Hudgins, and goalie Ian Humphrey had 10 saves.

Dayton Chr. 7, Lehman 0

DAYTON — Lehman went on the road and dropped a 7-0 verdict to a strong Dayton Christian team in non-league play Tuesday.

The loss left the Cavaliers at 5-7-1 on the year with Lima Temple Christian coming to town today.

“We hung with them for about 25 minutes and then the floodgates opened up,” said Lehman coach Tom Wiseman. “They have a senior all-region player and another will probably be all-state. Our young defense tried, and we packed our midfielders into the defense, but we couldn’t stop them.”

Botkins 7, TV South 2

WEST ALEXANDRIA — Botkins made the long trip to Twin Valley South well worth it with a 7-2 victory in non-league boys soccer Tuesday.

The win puts the Trojans at 9-3-1 on the year heading into a big home match today against Lima Catholic.

Kaleb Hanby had three goals for the Trojans, and Tanner Russell, Micah Smock, Cody Meyer and Alex Bajwa had one each.

Russell had two assists, and Hanby, Smock, Trent Egbert and Marcus Lee all had assists.
