PORTER TWP. | Two wins over the span of two hours makes for a good day.

Wednesday was especially great for the Hebron Hawks, who won the continuation of Monday’s suspended match against Kouts before picking up a 3-0 victory against Morgan Township to advance to Saturday’s sectional championship game against host Boone Grove.

Monday’s overtime game was delayed due to darkness, so Kouts and Hebron met Wednesday afternoon to decide which team would play Morgan Township in the next round. Richie Botts scored the lone goal of the seven-minute period.

“It’s crazy,” Botts said. “It gets our team riled up. We play a lot harder when we know we’re up. We have that momentum and adrenaline going, so we just play so much better as a team.”

Hebron carried that momentum into the match against Morgan Township, cruising to a 3-0 win. Botts assisted second-half goals by Brad Blank at the 37:13 mark and Dawson Walsh at :28.3.

Nick Surber opened the scoring less than five minutes into the match with what proved to be the game-winner.

“I felt really good, because recently my grandpa just died, so I scored for him,” Surber said. “I felt really good about it.”

Surber went off late in the first half with a knee injury. He was unable to start the second half but eventually subbed in, moving from forward to defense.

“It was a great experience to come back because I don’t want to let my team down,” Serber said. “I just wanted to play. I don’t want to be hurt in sectionals because it would be terrible.”

Hebron will face host Boone Grove in the sectional championship game Saturday afternoon.

“We just have to work on our possession as a team, opening up more and working on passes,” Botts said of preparing to face the Wolves. “It’s going to be a really good game.”

On Wednesday, Dan Barzycki made six saves for Morgan Township. Zach Porter had three saves for the Hawks, including a full-extension dive that kept the Cherokees off the board late in the first half.
