TELL CITY—Tell City senior Casey May was named the goalie on the All-PAC boys soccer team by conference coaches Monday.
Tell City finished seventh among seven teams in conference standings with a 1-6 record. But the Marksmen’s PAC win was a 1-0 overtime shutout of Pike Central in which May played goalie the entire game.
May started all but one game at goalie for the Marksmen, who finished 1-11-2 overall.
Tell City did not keep statistics for the entire season, but in games for which statistics were available he played 800 minutes and gave up 17 goals, an average of 1.7 goals per complete game.
His main strength at goalie is “just being knowledgeable of the game,” said Tell City Coach Austin Fischer. “He charged the ball when he needed to—he could read defenses well.”
Tell City has won just two conference games in its three years as a varsity team but has had one player make all-conference each year.
Gibson Southern, which tied Forest Park for the conference title at 4-0-2, led this year’s team with three selections. Forest Park and South Spencer each had two players make the 11-man team.
South Spencer’s Drew Fortune made the team for the third year in a row. Other repeaters from last year were Shane Shelton of South Spencer, Jacob Western of Pike Central, and Isaiah Hagan of Heritage Hills.
