Girls soccer

Seymour picks up win

The Seymour girls soccer team picked up a 2-0 win over Scottsburg on Thursday night.

A goal from Eliza Cash (assisted by Haley Westfall) and a goal by Westfall (assisted by Brooke Trinkle) gave the Owls the advantage.

Lightning struck in the second half, canceling the rest of the game, but since the second half was already underway, Seymour picked up the win.

Jessica Hougland had one save on the day and now has two shutouts on the season.

The Owls (2-2) will return to action next week against Jeffersonville on Tuesday at home.

Lightning causes cancellation for county teams

The Seymour boys’ varsity soccer match against Bloomington North at home Thursday night was canceled because of lightning.

Seymour’s junior varsity was leading North 3-2 with 6:14 left in the match when lightning was detected within 10 miles of the school, causing the alarm to go off, and more lightning was spotted in the area.

Martin Bartolome scored two goals and Amir Morales scored the other goal for the Owls.

Seymour will travel to Whiteland Saturday with the JV match set to start at 10 a.m.

Same goes for Brownstown boys tennis, who were at Scottsburg. Ethan Davis picked up a win for the Braves at one singles, while Scottsburg had taken both doubles.

Both number two and three singles were still in progress. Brownstown had won the first set in each of those, but were trailing in the second set when the lightning struck.

The Braves will resume that match on Monday.
