COLUMBUS, Ind. -- Freshman Alex McGill scored in the 17th minute Tuesday night (Sept. 29), leading the Columbus North boys soccer team to a 1-0 victory over Seymour on Senior Night.
Eight CN seniors -- Ty Bentham, Preston Grimes, Lucas McGill, Alex Davidson, Kevin Morales, Sam Snider, Tyler Heathcote and Mason Shaffer -- were honored in a pregame ceremony at Max Andress Field, where the game was moved after day-long rain made the field at Richard Wigh Soccer Complex unplayable.
The Bull Dogs improved to 7-5-3 with the decision.
Junior Nick Beales assisted on Alex McGill's goal, which came from the right side of the box into the left side of the net.
Bentham and Grimes each played one half in goal to share a shutout for Columbus North. Bentham made one save in the first half, while Grimes made three saves in the second half.
For the game, CN outshot the Owls 10-4. Keeper Austin Hatfield made nine saves for Seymour.
There was no JV game.
Columbus North returns to action Friday (Oct. 2) when it visits Class 2A No. 6 Carmel in its regular-season finale. The JV game begins at 6 p.m., and the varsity follows about 7:30 p.m. CN begins sectional play at 6 p.m. next Wednesday (Oct. 7) when it faces Columbus East in a semifinal game.
