HGHS, 8-1-1 in the BEC and 11-4-2 overall, remained in second place in the league behind Sheboygan Christian/Lutheran (10-0 in BEC). The Tigers were scheduled to host SC/L Monday, Oct. 5.

The Tigers had opportunities to score more goals versus Oostburg but had three shots hit a goal post. HGHS grabbed a 1-0 halftime lead on senior midfielder Jeremy Berglund’s goal at the 15:40 mark in the first half.

The Dutchmen tied the game on a goal by senior forward/midfielder Zac Dulmes at the 75:30 mark.

“Both teams played very well, I think we had the advantage in the first half and then things equaled out in the second half. We just didn’t hang on for the win at the end,” said Tiger head coach Kasey Smith.

Oostburg has one of the better defenders in the conference in Christopher TenPas. He moves to the ball and interrupts anything in the middle or crossed in the air. He is a player that you have to try to avoid or get out of position and that is tough.”

Oostburg led 9-7 in shots on goal. Tiger goalie Hunter Voss made six saves and Dutchman goalie Harrison Brill had two.

“On our side of the ball I felt that Lucas Jaeger at defender came up huge for us tonight. He shut down their runs up the right side over and over,” said Smith.

“He manages to recover after mistakes and his speed is deceiving. He moved this season from the sweeper spot to outside defender, and it seems like he is enjoying that spot and his teammates like having him come forward with the ball when he has chances.”

The Dutchmen are 6-2-2 in the conference and 11-3-5 overall.

KOHLER MATCH

On Tuesday afternoon the Tigers defeated host Kohler, 4-0, led by Berglund’s two goals.

Derrick Grimm and Devin Gallenberger scored one goal each. Gallenberger, William Rautmann and Jack Baldwin had one assist each.

The Tigers held an outstanding 17-4 edge in shots on goal. Voss was credited with four saves. Blue Bomber goalkeeper Michael Kral made 13.

“A great team effort this evening for us, and an offensive spark from Jeremy Berglund that started a couple games ago is continuing,” said Smith.

“I have to give credit to Kral. He had an incredible game in the net and made several great saves tonight to keep the game close.

“Our defense played especially well the second half and started to move their feet better instead of reaching and stabbing at the ball,” added the Tiger coach.

The Blue Bombers fell to 4-6 in the BEC (7-7 overall).
