Shelbyville took on the Richmond Red Devils in the Sectional semifinal Wednesday night. The Golden Bears wanted to get off to a fast start, and Alex Gil found the back of the net within 35 seconds. However Gil was judged to be offsides. As the game settled in, Shelbyville kept looking for an opening. Eventually Gil got his head on the end of an Alex Abell cross time give Shelbyville the lead. Gil doubled the lead shortly after. Goals from Al Hernandez and Christian Haas gave the Golden Bears a comfortable 4-0 margin heading into halftime.
Shelbyville was able to rest many starters in the second half since they played heavy minutes just 24 hours ago. Kaleb Schaf organized a young team to help keep the shut out. Benny Cazares capped off the scoring late in the game.
The Boys will travel to Mt. Vernon on Saturday to play East Central starting at 7 pm for the sectional championship.
