The Noblesville boys soccer team traveled to Class 3A No. 2 Zionsville on Tuesday, cand came away with a 1-1 tie.
The Millers took the lead in the first half when Carter Cates made a good strike from just outside of 18 feet. The ball just went inside the lower left post.
The Eagles tied the game in the second half on a penalty kick. Noblesville was forced to play a man down after a red card in the second half, but continued to press for the winner. Luke Kpodi had multiple runs on goal as the lone striker, while Adam Carter did his part in goal to preserve the tie by stopping a few breakaway attempts and clearing out corner kicks.
“Overall, the Millers should be proud of the way they played down a man and have proven that they should be taken seriously with the top teams in the state of Indiana as their unbeaten streak is now at six,” said Noblesville coach Ken Dollaske.
