Thursday Boys Soccer District Championship Roundup


XENIA — The Tippecanoe boys soccer team had its season come to a heartbreaking end in the D-II district finals at Xenia High School Thursday night.

The game was tied 1-1 after regulation and two 15 minute overtime periods and Oakwood outscored Tippecanoe 2-0 in PKs to decide the game.

Tipp finished with a 17-3 record on the season.

Carson King, who had the game-winning goal against Bethel Monday night, got Tipp on the board midway through the first half on an assist from Landon Haas.

Despite Tipp dominating the last 60 minutes of regular and the two overtime periods, the Red Devils were unable to get another goal.

The Red Devils had goals wiped out by offsides calls four different times.

Oakwood’s Will Behnke wood tie the game with 28:03 remaining in regulation.

Tipp would miss all four PK attempts.

Goalie Michael Jergens, who finished with nine saves, made the save on two of Oakwood’s PKs.

But, Vito Russell and Jason Purks made PKs for Oakwood and that proved to be the difference.
