After a 17-0 victory over Licking Valley in the first round of the Division II district tournament on Oct. 21, coach Dave Sebek had a stern warning for the Olentangy High School boys soccer team: Not all games are going to be like this.

After a 17-0 victory over Licking Valley in the first round of the Division II district tournament on Oct. 21, coach Dave Sebek had a stern warning for the Olentangy High School boys soccer team: Not all games are going to be like this.

"It's a confident way to go into the next round," said Sebek, whose team faced Hartley last Tuesday in a district semifinal. "But the guys need to understand that the next game will not be like this one. It most likely will be a one-goal game. We have to maintain our focus."

The Braves, the second seed for the Division II tournament, were one of four teams from the school district that made it to district semifinals. Orange, which defeated Franklin Heights 10-0 last Saturday, and Liberty, which defeated Groveport 4-0 last Saturday, both advanced to the Division I boys district semifinals.

The Liberty girls team, which defeated Granville 4-0 on Oct. 21, was the only girls team to advance. The Pioneers, who lost to Thomas Worthington 3-0 on Oct. 21, and the Braves, who lost to Grove City 5-2 on Oct. 19, were both eliminated from the girls tournament.

•The Olentangy, Liberty and Orange boys teams outscored their first four opponents by a combined score of 41-0.

Jesus Villarroel scored three goals in Orange's rout of Franklin Heights while Olentangy Liberty had 11 players score in its 10-0 win over Independence in an Oct. 20 play-in game and its win over Groveport last Saturday.

"Our attack is finally clicking," said Liberty coach Josh Diehl whose team had been shut out four times and averaged 1.3 goals a game during the regular season. "We're doing all the little things and creating chances."

•After starting the season 8-0-2, the Liberty girls soccer team appeared to level out before the tournament. The Patriots closed the season with a 2-2-2 mark in their last six games.

However, once it got to the postseason, coach Erin Mullady said the team started to perk back up. Liberty scored three goals in the first 15 minutes in its win over Granville.

"After a month of not being able to find the back of the net, we're starting to come back now," Mullady said. "We know we have the ability, we just have to be ready to battle."

• Coach Kristen Schreiber said the Olentangy girls team's season-ending loss to Grove City was a reflection of the entire season.

"I felt like they battled," said Schreiber, whose team finished 4-9-4 overall. "It's not that we played terrible. The effort was there, but we felt like we could have had better results."

The Braves were seventh in the OCC-Cardinal Division with a 1-5-1 record, finishing behind Dublin Scioto (6-0-1), Dublin Jerome (5-2), Olentangy Liberty (5-2), Westerville Central (4-2-1), Westerville North (3-3-1), and Marysville (1-4-1) and ahead of Westerville South (0-7).

Olentangy will be hit hard defensively with the graduation of goalie Shannon Schneider and defenders Julie Arcara, Audrey Miller, Natalie Milliron and Emily Rutledge, as well as Calin Kelly from the midfield.

Schreiber expects to have juniors Nicole Bean and Dominique Tirado and sophomores Katie Crumb and Megan Landon back as forwards. Juniors Carmen Allen, Emily Bechtol, Bailey Endres and Jalene Pickett, sophomores Emma Hardesty, Katie Huter and Natasha Ustaszewski and freshmen Allison Zahler and Allie Lowery should return to the midfield. Sophomore goalie Bailey Hatch and freshman Bridgette Boyle are expected back on defense.

"We will be deep next year," Schreiber said. "Hopefully we will learn from these experiences and compete better next year."

• After her team's loss to Tho-mas Worthington in the second round, it was difficult for coach Jen Odebrecht to say goodbye to six seniors who helped build the Orange girls soccer team.

The Pioneers lose Hana Abu-Kwiek and Chelsea Deffenbaugh as forwards and Kristen Cunningham, Anna-Jane Jenkins and Lauren Juttner from the defense as well as Erica Hauger, who was sidelined this season with a knee injury. That group helped the Pioneers go 32-19-4 in their first three years.

"There's going to be such a gaping hole next year," Odebrecht said. "In three years we've become very close to each other."

The Pioneers placed second in the OCC-Capital with a 5-1-1 record behind New Albany (7-0) and ahead of Delaware (4-3), Big Walnut (2-4-1), Watkins Memorial (1-5-1), Mount Vernon (1-5-1) and Franklin Heights (0-7).

Odebrecht, however, has the parts to start over. Sophomore Carly Swisher and freshman Stephanie Lewis should return as forwards. Junior Rachel Wintering, sophomore Bailey Castillo and freshman Emily Burton are expected back to the midfield.

Junior Shauni Kerkhoff should be back as goalkeeper with freshman Madison Doone serving as backup. Sophomores Samantha Vaughn and Taylor Delery should be back as defenders.

"It's definitely going to be a rebuilding year," Odebrecht said. "There's going to be a lot of opportunities for other players."
