TROY — Last week, the Troy boys soccer team was disappointed and frustrated after Greenville forced a 2-2 draw in the closing seconds.
The Trojans took every last bit of that frustration out on Sidney.
Troy (9-0-1, 6-0-1 Greater Western Ohio Conference American North Division) handed Sidney (7-3, 4-2 GWOC American North) its worst loss of the season Tuesday night, making a statement with a 4-1 victory at Troy Memorial Stadium.
Grant Holland and Henry Shaneyfelt decimated the Sidney defense on the night. Holland had two goals and an assist and Shaneyfelt had a goal and two assists to seal the win. Brandon Lewis added a goal, and Conner Hubbell had an assist.
Troy hosts Lebanon Saturday before facing Butler on Sept. 27. The Trojans and Aviators both have no losses and one tie in GWOC American North play, with Butler boasting a 3-0-1 record. Tippecanoe continues to hold the division lead with a 6-0 record.

Miami East 1,
CASSTOWN — The Miami East girls soccer team pushed undefeated Anna to the limit Tuesday night, but the Rockets scored the game-tying goal with 1:52 remaining to escape with a 1-1 draw.

“I can’t say enough about how well Bodey (played) in the goal tonight,” Miami East coach Emalie Carson said. “It would have been a very different game had she not been on. To give up a goal that late was disappointing, but Anna was 8-0 coming in, had scored well over 30 so far this season and has only given up two. So we have to look at the positive and get ready for the next one.”
