ARGOS | Wheeler’s high-powered offense could not get on track against Fort Wayne Bishop Luers.

The Knights possessed the ball for much of the contest and kept the Bearcats from registering a shot on goal as Luers came away with a 1-0 girls soccer semifinal win at Saturday’s Class A Argos Semistate.

Luers finished with a 27-5 edge in shots over the course of the game and totaled a 10-0 advantage in shots on goal.

“Their ball possession was fantastic,” Wheeler coach Bryan Murray said. “They play really well together. It was not the first time they’ve touched a soccer ball this season. We did what we could do.”

The Knights (15-4) scored the only goal of the game in the 13th minute and made that stand up throughout the rest of the game.

Aubrey Feipel put a shot from 12 yards out that went into the net just inside the far post.

A strong wind blew throughout the game, and Luers took the wind in the first half. The Knights controlled possession in the opening 40 minutes and had a 6-0 advantage in shots on goal.

Wheeler (17-2-2) had the advantage of the wind in the second half, but it couldn’t control possession long enough to get a good scoring chance.

Luers kept up the pressure in the second half and had four excellent scoring chances, and Wheeler keeper Kadie Spoor was up to the task each time.

Spoor stopped point-blank shots Addie Reimbold, Shayna Coy and Madeline Reimbold in the second half to keep the Wheeler deficit at 1-0.

The Bearcats registered three shots in the second half. Lauren Fratzke had an opportunity at the edge of the 18-yard box, but her shot went wide of the goal.

The Knights had a chance in the final minute of the first half to add to the lead when Spoor came out of her net to stop an initial shot, but Katie Reif was in the right place to deflect a second shot attempt away.

The Bearcats won the Northwest Indiana Soccer Conference title along with a sectional title and the school’s first regional championship.

“Last year we built to this year, and if the kids can make some strides in the offseason, we’ll see what we can do,” Murray said.
