The Blackbirds defeated Lake 2-1, Saturday, Oct. 6. In the first game of the season the Flyers won 3-1.

Midway through the first period, following a give-and-go series of passes, Landon Roth found Caleb Rychener open through the middle. Rychener placed a nice shot into the right upper 90 for a 1-0 lead.

Early in the final period, a Lake forward broke free on the right wing and knotted the score at 1. The Blackbirds continued to work hard at both ends of the field. Their work was rewarded when Rychener and Roth connected again on a corner kick, which Rychener directed past the keeper for 2-1 lead.

Justin Rupp, Sami Tilley and Austin Schmucker played solid in the halfback position, while Jake Myers and Tessa Waidelich provided much needed spark up front.

The Birds completed a successful season with a 2-0 win over Maumee Valley Country Day, Monday, Oct. 8. Held scoreless in the first period, Pettisville finished strong, scoring twice in the final 15 minutes. The first goal came off a crossing pass from Waidelich to Rychener, whose shot rolled just to the right of the diving keeper.

About five minutes later, Roth received the ball at the top of the 18 and flicked a pass forward to Levi Nofziger, who buried the shot for the 2-0 victory.

The defense, led by Nate Hartzler in goal and Gabe Beck at stopper, with a support of James Eicher, Caitlin Beck, Dillon King, John Rufenacht, Pearl Bloomer and Riley Terry, stayed strong to ensure the second shutout of the season. The Blackbirds finish with a 6-4-2 record.
