The Boys Soccer (1-14) season came to a close on Tuesday night with a 1-0 defeat to Lebanon HS in the IHSAA Class 2A Sectional #20 quarterfinals.

CCHS played a solid match, controlling the ball a good percentage of the time.  LHS were able to tally the game’s lone goal early in the second half, as the Tiger’s Alexander VanZandt snuck a ball under the crossbar.  The ball hit the underside of the cross bar and came out, but was ruled to have crossed the goal line for the score.

CCHS pressured throughout the remaining 38 minutes, producing some solid scoring chances, but could not find the back of the net.  Lebanon will advance to face host Brebeuf Jesuit Prep in the sectional semifinals on Wednesday.  BJPS defeated Hamilton Heights HS 4-0 in their quarterfinal match on Tuesday.  On the other side of the bracket, Guerin Catholic HS will face Western Boone HS on Wednesday.
