BOONE GROVE | Boone Grove boys soccer coach Brian Sherwin wanted his team to control the rush that would come in the first 10 minutes of the Wolves' sectional championship match against Hebron.

Boone Grove did just that.

The Wolves used two first-half goals to win the Class A Boone Grove Sectional 3-0, though one goal would be more than enough, as Boone controlled the ball and tempo of the game from start to finish.

"We definitely wanted to initially win the adrenaline rush in the beginning and get the first goal," Sherwin said. "Hopefully calm a few things down, and we did. We got the goal right away, and I think both teams settled in to the way they wanted to play right after that."

Austin Aguilera scored just 12 minutes into the match, assisted by Brad Kaminisky and at first glance, Aguilera was unaware that he had even scored. Andrew Ooms added a second goal of off a free kick later in the first half.

"I got the ball in the middle and I just shot it," Aguilera said. "At first, I thought I missed, then I heard it hit off the post. We had to just go out there and win. That was just the mindset we had."

Ooms goal came with 11:54 remaining in the first half on the free kick from just outside the right side of the Hebron penalty box.

"I saw the goalie was trying to cheat up so I was trying to bend it to the left," Ooms said. "I just put it right over him, and he missed it. I'm glad we got the 3-0 win. I hope we do good in regionals."

Cameron Varlan added a penalty kick goal just 2:08 into the second half to extend the Boone Grove (16-2) lead to 3-0. Hebron (11-6-1) was unable to open any offense, and the Hawks first shot on goal did not come until nine minutes remained in the match. Hebron keeper Zachary Porter finished with six saves.

"The boys didn't pick it up in the first 10 minutes very well," Hebron coach Zeljko Mijatovic said. "I'm happy with the season. I'm happy with Hebron coming to this point in time and making the finals of the sectional. We are only losing three seniors, so we will be looking for more next year."
