Freshman Iyana Phelps picked up a hat trick and Madison dominated every facet of the game to roll to a 6-0 victory over Southwestern in girls soccer Tuesday in Hanover.

The Cubs spent nearly the entire game playing on Southwestern’s half of the field. Madison outshot the Rebels 42-2 — including 24-2 on goal — and attempted seven corner kicks to none by Southwestern. The Rebels’ only two shots both came on direct kicks from nearly 30 yards away.

With that overwhelming advantage, it was no surprise that Madison scored plenty of goals. Phelps picked up her first marker when she placed a direct kick past Southwestern goalie Hannah Sampson from 25 yards out in the 17th minute and Jordyn Bilz added a second goal in the 23rd minute when her high shot ticked off Sampson’s outstretched hands.

Madison then scored two goals right before the half to blow open the contest, a close-quarter marker by Casey Dyer in the 39th minute and a second goal by Phelps in the 40th.

Phelps finished off her hat trick four minutes into the second half and Taylor Lynch scored in the 79th minute for the final score.

Sampson stopped 17 shots in total in the game while being under near constant attack. Lynch stopped one shot in goal while Bridget Cline had one save in relief as the pair teamed up for the shutout.

Madison, now 4-3 on the season, travels to Class A No. 6 Providence today and to Bedford North Lawrence on Saturday. Southwestern, now 0-3-3, hosts Scottsburg today and Rising Sun on Monday.



Rebels beat Milan for 1st win

Southwestern’s boys soccer team picked up its first win of the season, 2-0 at Milan on Tuesday.

Salvador Hernandez and Bryce Hatton each scored goals for the Rebels while Brandon Smith and Matt Mingione each collected assists. Brady McLain stopped seven shots in goal to record the shutout win.

“This was Hatton’s first game back since game one and he definitely made an impact in the game,” Southwestern coach Seth Shields said. “He played stellar defense as center defender and then scored the first goal of the game coming in the second half. I moved him up for a few minutes to try to use his speed to create an opportunity. He got a beautiful ball from Matt Mingione that went over the heads of the defense which Hatton sprinted down to make a touch on the ball passed their keeper for the goal. All around teamwork from the whole team throughout the game to create opportunities like that one.”

Southwestern, now 1-1-4 overall and 1-1-3 in the Ohio River Valley Conference, travels to Shawe on Monday.



Shawe-Switz tie 2-2

Shawe and Switzerland County battled to a 2-2 draw in boys soccer Tuesday in Madison.

The Hilltoppers took a 2-0 lead in the first half when Miguel Morales Vazquez scored on a cross from Johan Betancourth in the 13th minute and on a penalty kick by Betancourth a few minutes later.

Switzerland County battled back with two goals in the second half to pull out the tie. No details for the Pacers were available.

Goalie Hunter Kennett stopped 17 shots in the game for Shawe.

“Miguel and Johan’s goal was a great cross and a great shot. The best part was we had people open and had some depth to be able to finish,” Shawe coach Cameron Willoughby said. “It was a pretty good first half, unfortunately the second half wasn’t as sharp and we started to struggle with our defensive decision making.”
