LCAA’S FINEST: Hinrich-led Indians prepping for another sectional run

NUNDA – The Keshequa boy’s soccer program loves the post-season, evidenced by four Section V blocks stuffed in their school’s trophy case. With two more regular season games to play this week, the Indians, once again, are heading into the second season with some momentum on their side following their recent 3-0 victory over Perry. Owen Pike scored two goals while Ian Hinrich had a goal and an assist to lead the way. Also adding assists were Boone Douglass and Zach Smathers.  Keeper Greg Loper made three saves for the shutout as Keshequa improved to 8-6 on the season. It was Hinrich’s team-leading 12th goal of the season. He’s also added eight assists accounting for 20 of the team’s 28 goals. Keshequa hosts Mount Morris Wednesday in a revenge game as the Indians fell 1-0 to the Blue Devils back on Sept. 23. The Indians will then face a tough LetSaw squad Friday before heading into sectional play in a tough, physical Class C2 bracket with LCAA rival Geneseo, along with Dundee/Bradford and Alfred-Almond. Currently, Geneseo is the No. 1 seed with Keshequa sitting at No. 3. Two wins this week would almost guarantee Keshequa would stay out of Geneseo’s side of the bracket which ultimately could set up a title match.“As a team, we have talked about playing our best at the end of the season,” Keshequa head coach Ron Macomber Jr. said. “Hopefully, Saturday’s result was a step in that direction. We have two games left and we’re trying to build some momentum before sectionals. Hopefully, some adjustments we made prior to Saturday’s game will continue to pay off. We’ve been pretty inconsistent this season and injuries definitely haven’t helped things. But we’re finally healthy and I think our best soccer is ahead of us.”
