Columbus East has been playing strong team soccer, and the Olympians showed off their muscle again Tuesday, winning 2-1 and sending home No. 12 Bloomington South with its first loss of the season.
“We like playing quality teams at the end of the season, and for us to come out against a team that was undefeated and was Conference Indiana champs, it’s a good win for us,” East coach Brad Barber said. “This is the first victory we’ve had over a ranked opponent in a long, long time, and to do it on senior night was exciting, as well.”
Cameron Layman scored a first-half goal off an assist from Colin Singer for the Olympians (11-3-1), and the game was tied at 1 at halftime. Mitch Tabler scored the game-winner in the 68th minute off an assist from Layman.
“Both goals we scored tonight were two excellent goals,” Barber said.
JB Baxter recorded seven saves in goal.
