Tigers sharp in BEC win over Huskies

NEW HOLSTEIN – The Howards Grove Tigers played a strong overall match to fuel a 3-1 victory over New Holstein/ Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah in a boys soccer match here Thursday night.

The Tigers raised their Big East Conference record to 7-1 (9-4-3 overall). The Huskies dropped to 4-4 in BEC play (5- 10-1 overall).

“Overall, we played a pretty good game on both sides of the field. I liked our possessions again as we continue to get quality passing around the field, and string together seven or eight passes as we move up the field,” said Tiger head coach Bob Peterson.

The Huskies grabbed a 1-0 lead on Noah Ruh’s goal in the 14th minute, assisted by fellow EL-G student Justin Schultz.

The Tigers seized a 2-1 halftime lead after a goal each from Blake Pedrin and Rozz Yost at the 26- and 30-minute marks, respectively. Pedrin’s goal was assisted by William Rautmann. Peter Grimm had the assist for Yost’s goal.

HG added a big insurance goal in the 79th minute by Rautmann, assisted by Pedrin.

“Right now we are battling a lot of players being sick and having trouble getting past all these bugs,” said Husky head coach Steve Conrad.

“I thought at the beginning of the game we had a lot of energy but it seemed to fade as the night and rain continued to come.

“Right now we just need to get back to our better passing and communication skills. We sometimes just like to get rid of the ball but we really need to pass with better purpose,” said Conrad.

“Our defense did a really nice job – limiting New Holstein to three shots on goal,” said Peterson.

“Blake Pedrin was solid again, as he is such a strong presence at the middle defender position. Offensively, we keep getting better at producing shots on goal.”

HG had 15 shots on goal. Tiger goalie Austin Bender made two saves and Husky goalie Deegan Kossman had 12.
