H.S. BOYS' SOCCER: Pioneers beat Lanesville 2-0 for back-to-back sectional titles

Providence will face No. 15 Jac-Cen-Del in Thursday’s regional



"That's what we've been working on this season — getting the ball wide and finding people in the middle to finish off the chances we do have," Providence senior and co-captain Evan Hollkamp said. "It was going to come to us as long as we kept working." 

The hosts were able to keep the Eagles (9-5-1) on their side of the field for the remaining minutes of the contest, and hoisted the sectional championship trophy on their home field minutes later. 

Rauck, a junior, credited seniors Wiles, Hesse, Thomas Davis, Nick Reas and Hollkamp for providing the leadership for the rest of the squad this season.

"We played a strong game, but I think our seniors really get a lot of the credit for this one," he said. "They know what it takes to win a sectional and helped us get there." 

For Lanesville — a program in just its second season — getting to the sectional championship and hanging with the defending sectional champion was a big step.

“It’s not normal to see a two-year program come to the finals of a sectional,” Eagles coach coach Scott Rogers said. “The kids came together as a team early last year, that’s what it’s all about. Coming this far, I think we’re all happy. We’re celebrating even though we lost.”

Providence takes on 15th-ranked Jac-Cen-Del (13-2-2) at the Switzerland County Regional on Thursday.
