Boys’ Soccer Team

Shepard Cupp, Author

The boys soccer team had a different start this year. With COVID-19, they have had to go about practices and games a little differently. Carter Tague, midfielder, said that early in the season, “we weren’t able to do some of the things that we normally are able to do in terms of contact drills, but it did allow us to do a lot more conditioning.” However, he remarks that, in terms of the gameplay, “it is relatively the same.”

Rushville started their season well, with 5 wins and with 7 losses. Rushville had rough games against teams such as Batesville and South Dearborn, but played valiantly and won against teams such as Union County and Wapahani. Carter says, “We played against a few really good teams, but there were some games we could’ve played a little harder and secured the win.”

Last week, Rushville played the MTI School of Knowledge on our home field on September 21st. Rushville emerged victorious with a final score of 5-1. Rushville then had a close game at New Castle. Unfortunately, they lost 1-0. On September 26th, Rushville fought valiantly and ended in a tied game against Morristown.

Rushville is scheduled to play at home against Richmond on September 28th. The current record is 5-8-1.
