Earlier this week, Steinmetz Stadium was packed for the girls' soccer rivalry of Bluffton and Allen East. BHS won 4-1.
Senior Captain and Keeper, Jadyn Barhorst, blocked numerous attempts by the AE offense, but the tide turned 17 minutes in to the game when Senior Sarah Theisen received a pass from Senior Captain Sydney Staton and took it the rest of the way down the field for goal 1.
With 16 minutes left in the first half, a hand ball in the box called on Allen East gave Bluffton another chance, and Theisen sinks it in the back of the net for goal 2.
