CLARKSVILLE — In a battle of top-10 ranked Class A boys’ soccer teams, No. 5 Providence fell short 4-2 against No. 10 Indianapolis Scecina.
Junior Luke Hesse and senior Ryan Drury had goals for the Pioneers but Scecina’s offensive attack proved too tough.
“They play their style extremely well and we couldn’t adapt defensively. We generated some scoring opportunities but not enough. It was good to play that kind of game early in the season,” Providence coach Jake Stengel said.
Jacob Braswell had seven saves in goal for the Pioneers.
