Zionsville advances to title game with 2-1 win

Carmel —

There was no letdown for the Zionsville girls soccer team Thursday night after beating top-ranked ranked Carmel in the sectional opener on Tuesday.

The Eagles played another strong game and dispatched No. 7 Guerin Catholic 2-1 to advance to the sectional final against Westfield on Saturday.

"Every game we play in this sectional is going to be so tough," Zionsville head coach Ramon Aguillon said. "Guerin is an excellent team and they play until the last second of the game. We knew that we had to play 80 full minutes to win this game and that is exactly what the girls did tonight. I am extremely proud of them."

It was some retribution for Zionsville, which lost to Guerin 2-0 in the regular season.

"We knew they were going to be very physical," Aguillon said. "They are strong off the ball and very composed. We wanted to make sure we utilized the bigger field. This field is way bigger than the field we played on at their place. Our girls physically were just up to the task. We got beat up pretty good when we played up there and we were ready this time."

The two teams were deadlock for the first 30 minutes of the game, with most of the play going back-and-forth in the center of the pitch.

That all changed with a key five minute spurt by the Eagles in which they scored two goals to take a 2-0 lead into the half.

"That offensive spurt was huge," Aguillon said. "There was 10 minutes left in the half and it is huge difference in going up 2-0 into the half. That really gave the girls a lift heading into the second half."

The first goal came with 9:45 left in the half.
