SIDNEY — Before Saturday’s loss to Carroll, Sidney was the last team to defeat the Troy boys soccer team in a regular season match, way back on Oct. 6, 2015.
Tuesday night, the Trojans got back to winning.
Troy (8-1, 6-0 Greater Western Ohio Conference American North Division) held the GWOC’s leading scorer, Jalen Hudgins, in check Tuesday at Sidney, defeating the Yellow Jackets (6-5, 5-2 GWOC American North) 3-1 to keep pace with Tippecanoe and Butler in the division standings.
Kasheen Perdue had a goal and an assist for the Trojans, Elijah Williams and Conner Hubbell each had a goal and Bailey Webb had an assist.
Troy hosts Wayne Saturday night looking to begin another winning streak.
PIQUA — Piqua gave defending Greater Western Ohio Conference American North Division champion Tippecanoe all it could handle for a half Tuesday night, but in the end the Red Devils (8-1-1, 7-0 GWOC American North) pulled away for a 4-1 victory at Piqua.
Ben Sauls scored less than three minutes into the game to give Tippecanoe the lead, but Kaden Jones tied the score at 1-1 for the Indians (5-2-1, 4-1 GWOC American North) with 38:02 left in the game
Sauls scored his second goal of the game two minutes later, though, and Andrew DeBrosse and Caiden Smith each tacked on a goal. Sauls and Michael Pfister each had assists for the Devils.
Both teams are at home Thursday, with Tippecanoe hosting Wayne and Piqua hosting Xenia.
WEST MILTON — Waynesville kept the Southwestern Buckeye League’s leading scorer, Milton-Union’s Keltonn Dillhoff, off the scoreboard, and even was able to take a one-goal lead.
But the Bulldogs rallied, claiming a 2-1 victory Tuesday night at home to improve to 8-1 overall and draw even with the Spartans atop the SWBL Buckeye Division at 4-1.
Josh Daum scored both goals for the Bulldogs, tying the game with an assist from Andrew Besecker and then giving Milton-Union the lead for good on an assist from Dillhoff.
Milton-Union travels to Madison Thursday.
Catholic Central 0
SPRINGFIELD — Bethel’s Tyler Brueckman scored three goals — three in an eight-minute span in the first half — leading the Bees (7-1-1) to a 5-0 rout of Springfield Catholic Central Tuesday.
“Tonight we were able to really move the ball well on the narrow field in Springfield,” Bethel coach Bob Hamlin said. “Alex van Haaren recorded his sixth shutout of the year, as our defense only allowed two shots. Micah Mutlu, Drew Kubiak, Ben Lawson, Luke Moorefield and our starting defenders do not get a great deal of recognition for their effort in the defensive third, but they did a great job tonight shutting down Catholic’s leading scorer.”
Bethel travels to Brookville Thursday.
Other scores: Yellow Springs 3, Miami East 2.
