Boys soccer: Danville drops heartbreaker in OT in Class AA state quarterfinals


Unfortunately for the Ironmen, Hartzel's near-goal was the only shot they took as the Braves defense didn't yield many easy looks.

The Ironmen were without talented junior Shayne Riley for the second half, who sat out with a minor injury. Riley led the area this season with 19 assists and was a huge cog in Danville's offense.

Regardless of the outcome, it's a season of many accomplishments for the Ironmen, including their first District 4 title since 2003 and the program's first-ever state playoff game win last week.

"We're ecstatic with what we did this year. Especially going into season, a lot of people in area didn't give us much credit," Dressler said. "(They) didn't really think we had much of a team. They thought we'd be way down this year. As the year went on, we just got stronger and stronger and carried that through the playoffs to this point."
