> SOUTHERN INDIANA —
Jeffersonville was beaten 7-0 at home by Hoosier Hills Conference rival Seymour on Tuesday.
The results may seem like a bad one, but considering last year’s 12-0 loss at the hands of the Owls, it does show some progression by the Red devils.
“We kind of knew what they were going to do, but we just weren’t able to stop them,” Jeff coach Scott Epley said. “But we did better at it than we were able to last year. They set us on our heels early a little bit.”
Seymour dominated the flow of play from the opening kickoff and led 3-0 at the half.
“They beat our defense to death and beat us through the midfield and we really couldn’t get anything going. I was really disappointed. I thought we were a better team than we showed tonight.”
With Seymour having possession most of the contest, it put a ton of strain on the Devil defense. Considering that, goalkeeper Ashlyn Crane and the Jeff defense had a solid night.
“There were a couple of kids who played real hard,” Epley said, noting the play of Brooke Baker, who moved to offense in the second half to try to manufacture some scoring. “Our defense put up a fight considering they were on their heels the entire game. They did the best they could possibly do.”
The Red Devils go to Silver Creek on Thursday to take on a high-scoring Dragon squad.
“You have to keep plugging along,” Epley said. “Pat Anderson has done a nice job [at Silver Creek]. You have to give him credit.”
