Boys soccer; Eric Dempsey kicks Danville to District 4 Class AA championship


Dressler noted that this was the first time they played Lewisburg this season with a full, but maybe not completely healthy, line up.

"We know when we play Lewisburg, there is a lot of unnecessary running around but we also know they press a lot," he said. "We lost our composure there for three or four minutes after they scored and we were able to get back into the game and realize that we were still winning.'

Dempsey did not see the win over Lewisburg as an upset.

"I knew that we could get after them from the start," he said. "Our goalie (Jon Hauck) made some great saves and he's improved since the beginning of the year."

Hauck punched out one ball and made several diving saves on the night to preserve the lead.

The Green Dragons are a young team that starts five underclassmen in the starting line up.

"The good thing is that we are good and we are young," Kratzer said. "The boys had high expectations for the season and with high hopes comes disappointment at time. We aim very high and this loss will sting for a bit."

Danville prevented Lewisburg from attempting to claim a fourth consecutive District 4 title with the win.
