    Winning the Frankfort Invitational on Sept. 8 was not enough for the Crawfordsville Athenians boy’s soccer team.

    Okay, allow me to start off-topic for a sec . . .

    Is anyone else infuriated with the ending of the Lions-Colts game? For one, we still cannot tackle. I got so lost in counting the broken tackles for the Lions, I ended up falling asleep on half the game.

    Crawfordsville dominated the tempo and pace of the game early, and then survived a late Mountie surge, to pull away with a 5-2 victory Thursday night.

  • C’ville falls to Lebanon 0-3
    Thursday, September 3, 2015 11:47 PM

    Kalidou Diaw and the Athenians pulled up short in Thursday’s game against the Tigers.


    The Athenians had six shots on goal while Joel Raters had two saves.


    “We need to do a much better job getting our head up to find the space available,” Coach Marcus Hale said. “The right wing was available the first half and the left wing was available the second half. We just did not possess to find it often enough.”

  • Blue overtakes red 6-1
    Thursday, August 27, 2015 10:54 PM

    Blue took on red Thursday in the first soccer county match-up of the season. The stakes and energy were high as the rivals faced off. Spatterings of commands flew through the air, “Move!” “Middle!”, “Behind you!” The boys dove into an intense match with C’ville coming out on top 6-1.

    The Athenians took off from the get go. Wilfredo Cifuentes rocked one in early to lay the base for the game. Kalidou Diaw had a few nice runs on goal with a bicycle kick mixed in until he followed up with a second goal in the last few minutes of the first half.

    C’ville switched to more of a defensive game in the last eight minutes but Diaw turned it around with his goal at 3:30.

  • CHS seniors anchored county champs
    Wednesday, October 29, 2014 7:26 PM
    They were the two most important players on the best team in the county and sectional.

    That's why Crawfordsville seniors Michael Minks and Nathaniel Busenbark are the Montgomery County Boys Soccer Co-Players of the Year.

    Both players are four time county champs, two time sectional champs, first team All-Sagamore Athletic Conference selections and unanimous captains as seniors.

    "Nathaniel and Michael have not lost a regular season game to any county team in soccer during their time on the team. They have been anchors on a team that has struggled to score at times," Durrwachter said. "Many games, they have been asked to play defense for 75 percent of the game and brought great results."

    Minks had two goals and four assists this season, even while playing sweeper.

    Joining Michael Minks and Nathaniel Busenbark from Crawfordsville on the All-County Boys Soccer team are Michael Nordenbrock, Willy Cifuentes, Kalidou Diaw, Felipe Wilson and Dane Baldwin. Crawfordsville head coach Dan Durrwachter commended Baldwin for his performance at goalie this season, especially in the regional semifinal against Northwestern. Durrwachter said that Baldwin is the top goalie in the Sagamore Athletic Conference going into next season.

    North Montgomery is represented on the team by Braiden Slavens, Jordan Corey and Corbin Osborne. Slavens was a Player of the Year candidate. He scored 15 goals for North Montgomery.

    Devin Miller, Mikal Farabee, Travis Michael and Malik Gayler represent Southmont. Miller was a Player of the Year candidate. He scored four goals, made 55 saves as a goal and played defense for the Mounties. Southmont head coach Brandon Rash said that Miller controlled the field from every position and that without them the Mounties wouldn't have won the games they did.

    NOBLESVILLE - When the final horn sounded on Thursday night, Crawfordsville head coach Dan Durrwachter couldn't have been prouder of his team.

    Battling back from a 1-0 deficit to tie the game in the first half before surrendering the decisive goals deep into the second half, the praise reflected a defensive effort worthy of attention.

    For 56 minutes during the Class 2A Regional 12 semifinals against No. 6 Northwestern (16-3-1), the Athenians stonewalled the Tigers behind an outstanding performance by goalkeeper Dane Baldwin and his senior-led defense.

    "Michael Minks and Nathaniel Busenbark have really anchored the team," Durrwachter said. "Dane (Baldwin) kept us in it."

    Baldwin had 19 saves compared to Northwestern's 24 shots on goal, and after Blaine Brutus put the Tigers up 1-0 just over six minutes into the match, he didn't flinch until late in the second half.

    "Dane made every save and about 10 extra he shouldn't have," Durrwachter said.

    Baldwin's repeated diving saves and deflections fueled the Athenians and frustrated the Tigers, who were coming off their fourth consecutive and eighth overall sectional championship run.

    However, the Athenians weren't intimidated, especially Kalidou Diaw, who deadlocked the match at 1-1 with a header off an assist from Minks with five minutes left in the first half.

  • Crawfordsville boys win sectional title
    Saturday, October 11, 2014 9:36 AM
    The Athenians are sectional champions once again.

    After not defending their 2012 crown last year, Crawfordsville defeated Western Boone 4-2 on Saturday to win the boys' sectional 48 title.

    Crawfordsville got on the board first when Michael Minks got a penalty kick past the Stars' goalie to make it 1-0. Brayton Dewees evened things up with 18:13 left in the first half with a score for Western Boone.

    "We gave Michael Minks the game ball. We have two seniors, (Nathaniel) Busenbark and Minks," Crawfordsville head coach Dan Durrwachter said. "We haven't taken Minks off the field this season. He's taking goal kicks, taking free kicks and he's also the last line of defense to make sure they don't score."

  • Athenians advance, South bumped
    Wednesday, October 8, 2014 8:14 PM
    Eighty minutes couldn't decide it. But 83 was more than enough.

    The Crawfordsville boys' soccer team advance to the sectional 48 championship with a 2-0 win over North Montgomery in overtime Wednesday.

    Both teams had plenty of chances throughout regulation, but neither could find the back of the net. Regulation ended 0-0.

    "We started well first half. We started well second half. We were maintaining and possessing, but we sort of digressed. North continued to gain confidence each half," Crawfordsville head coach Dan Durrwachter said. "We've been talking less touches because the more it sticks to your foot, the harder it is to create anything."

    The Athenians were allowed a free kick after a relatively soft foul just over two minutes into the first of two seven-minute overtime periods. Michael Minks let it fly and Kalidou Diaw headed it in with 5:21 left to give Crawfordsville the lead.

    "That goal sort of took the wind out of our sails after that," Charger head coach Mike Margeson said. "We were pressing in the second overtime period to try and get one and they got another one."
