The Rushville boys soccer team hosted Morristown Thursday and were defeated by the Yellow Jackets 4-2.

Coach Eric Wagner said “Our young players are continuing to improve each game. We still have some mental lapses that we need to clean up, but we have seen much improvement throughout the season.”

The first half saw both teams playing in the middle third. Morristown played their defense line extremely high to draw Rushville offside. The Lions started with a fast attack, scoring in the first 10 minutes when a shot by Matthew Clark made its way past the goalie. The Yellow Jackets continued to counterattack and made a nice cross to the back post for a score before the half.

In the second half Morristown had an opportunity to score with a penalty kick but Rushville goalie Trent Gossett made a great save. The Yellow Jackets shook that miss off and scored on a corner kick. Two more goals in the half made it 4-1. Nathan Dora responded late in the game with a goal.

The Lions Saturday traveled to Connersville. The Spartans won 10-1 with five goals in each half.
