Indians fall to Bishop Carroll

For most of the game Saturday, it was difficult to tell which soccer team was the one ranked toward the top of Class 5A. Eventually visiting Wichita/Bishop Carroll pulled out the 2-0 win over Hays High School at HHS Field, but the Indians looked comfortable going up against the highly ranked Eagles.

"I'm very proud of the guys," Hays High coach Saul Hernandez said. "I think we needed a game like this because that gives us belief. They know we just need to work out the kinks up top and with our defense playing more solid every game, we can go quite a bit into regionals."

Bishop Carroll (9-2-1) scored early in the first half, a 14th-minute goal by senior Luke Ketter. It was one of the few times all game that the Indian defense was caught off guard.

It was the only regulation goal scored by the Eagles.

"We had a few calls that were controversial. Could have gone either way," Hays High junior Logan Renz said.

"On that first goal, we thought it was going to be ours so the defense wasn't ready to get back. It went through and things went their way."

The second goal was even more controversial. In the 68th minute, Carroll's Taylor White had a one on one with Hays High goalie Sheldon Sulzman, who charged out of the goal and met White in a big collision that prevented the goal.

Yellow cards were called on both players and the Eagles were awarded a penalty kick.

Ketter stepped in to kick for White, and easily put it in the back of the net against freshman Conner Staab, who took the place of Sulzman for one play.

Hays High (5-8) had plenty of chances to get on the board, getting fives shots on goal to Carroll's eight. But nothing could get past Carroll goalie Luis Fernandez, and the Indians were shut out for the third time in four games.

"They got two goals that I think they wouldn't have scored any other day," Hernandez said. "We can't finish. We work on it a lot in practice but in the game situation it's different. I understand that. But we need to finish our chances. We don't finish on our side and they come back and score on their chances. We need to start finishing."

Hays High will play it's final two WAC games this week, both against Garden City, before it finishes up the regular season on Oct. 24 against Thomas More Prep-Marian.

Despite four consecutive losses, the Indians feel by playing at the same level as a team like Bishop Carroll, they are setting themselves up well for postseason play.

"Like coach said, you need to peak at the end of the season," Renz said.

"It doesn't do you any good to peak at the beginning. Playing Great Bend, Dodge City, Liberal, it helps our motivation to just put some balls in the back of the net and try to win a game."
