---- — CENTERVILLE – After playing to a 1-1 tie with visiting Rushville, the Bulldogs of Centerville pushed across four more goals to seal a 5-2 victory in soccer action Thursday.

Single goal enough for Tigers at Rushville
Lawrenceburg’s Brandon Bills scored on a breakaway at the 34:34 mark of the second half to give the Tigers a 1-0 lead at Rushville Saturday in soccer action. That score held up as the Tigers left town with the conference win.
Lawrenceburg out-shot the Lions 23-7 on the day. Hunter Yazel had three shots for the Lions. Luke Sheehan added two. Ethan Foster and Ricky Thompson both had one.
“Finding the net seemed to be a problem today,” Coach Bob Beeler said. “We played well defensively with Grant Houston, Zach Stiers, Curtis Wright and Trent McQueen, along with Zach Keim, keeping them out of the net. That one breakaway was our downfall.”
The Lions host New Castle Thursday.
