The practice before the Mooresville game was spent getting everyone on the same page and improving Shelbyville’s possession play. For most of the contest Thursday night, the game plan worked as expected. Shelbyville controlled the ball and looked dangerous from the start. Even when possession was lost, the Bears locked the Pioneers in their own half with relentless pressure. Alex Gil found the first breakthrough through an assist by Trae Hassebroek. As the half was winding down, Oscar Hernandez picked up a pass from Jackson Browning and bent a shot into the far post. Hernandez then found Hassebroek to give Shelbyville a 3-0 lead heading into the break.
Mooresville climbed back into the game, getting the score back to 3-2 midway through the second half. Hernandez added some breathing room when he sliced through the defense to poke home his second of the night. With a 2 goal lead, Shelbyville was able to rest some starters as they wind down a tough stretch to end the season. Hassebroek found Kenny Velez for a tap in goal to cap off the scoring.
