H.S. ROUNDUP: Floyd Central opens Hoosier Cup with shutout victory

New Albany beats Providence 3-2 in boys' tennis to avenge Saturday's loss at invitational

> SOUTHERN INDIANA — Floyd Central opened up a three-game weekend with a stellar performance against Bloomington South in the opening round of the Hoosier Cup Friday night in Bloomington.

Floyd took control of the game early with a dominant passing game that allowed the Highlanders to control the tempo of the first half. While controlling the time of possession, Floyd was able to put up seven shots on goal and only allowed one.

The second half was much more of the same with Floyd launching six more shot attempts on a worn down Bloomington South defense. The persistent passing allowed the Highlanders to find holes, giving them open looks on the goal.

Lauren Wyatt lead the charge scoring both of the Floyd Central goals, one in each half. The first was set up by Emma Eattes and the second dime came from Halee Tanner.

Although Floyd Central has a busy 24 hours ahead of them Highlander coach, Lewie Stevens was very pleased with his girls’ performance on Friday and is optimistic about the weekend.

“Good way to start the weekend, we have three games in two days.” Stevens said. “When we keep the ball on the ground with our passes, we are very consistent.”

Stevens applauded his girls saying, “This is a big win and a nice game for us.”

Floyd Central will continue play today at the Hoosier Cup against Lafayette Central Catholic.
