Cougars seniors spark shutout

Coach Justin Vorthmann said it was nice to see the seniors on his Trinity Lutheran soccer team make major contributions in the Cougars’ 7-0 win against Henryville in Tuesday’s Senior Night match.

Mitch Noelker scored two goals, Mark Pinnow scored a goal, and Zach Vierling had an assist, while Mark Bushur was in goal in the second half, and they sparked the Cougars over the Hornets.

Those four seniors, along with Matthew Pinnow, started the match. Pinnow suffered a torn calf muscle during the Cougar Cup on Saturday.

“We started him, and the official blew the whistle right away so I could sub him off,” Vorthmann said. “He’s rehabbing, and it looks like he’ll be available for sectional.”

Those players, plus senior manager Haley Keith, and their parents, were introduced at halftime.

“It’s really been big. They all have in their own way,” Vorthmann said of the seniors’ contributions. “People who have seen our soccer program over the past several years know what Matthew and Mark Pinnow are capable of. They just put their body on the line, and they never hold back from anything, and their effort is always 110 percent. They’ve really dedicated themselves to the program and their teammates. They’ll do anything you ask them to and sometimes even do it with smiles on their faces.”
