The Bluffton Junior Varsity girls' soccer team hosted the Van Buren Black Knights Thursday evening at Steinmetz Field.
The Pirates took the lead early on, the first goal scored by freshman Brinkley Garmatter, but Van Buren responded moments later with one of their own and continually fired on the Lady Pirates ending in a score of 6-1.
The varsity also hosted Van Buren in their Parents Night game on Thursday. Senior Captain Goalkeeper Jadyn Barhorst fended off multiple shots by the Black Knights, holding the score to 0-0 at the half.

At one time or another every town should have an Al Ingalls.
Bluffton had one. And we truly feel for the towns that didn’t.
Al and his wife, Millie, owned Ingalls Restaurant. It was the last real sit-down restaurant on Main Street.
What a place. Hours were, oh, 5:30 a.m. to, what, 10 p.m. at night?
Those hours were set for the community, not the owners. It operated in a sort of informal “community system.” Meetings took place there. Deals developed. Coffee was poured. More meetings took place. More deals developed. More coffee was poured.
