  • The Osage Indians finished their regular season on Tuesday night with a senior night loss to Bolivar, with a final score of 4-0.
    The Indians and Bolivar were both treated to a downpour of rain as the game started, and by the time the rain let up, they were already soaked.
    But that didn't stop either team from playing, and eight minutes into the game, Bolivar scored as Gabe crossed the net with a shot, just out of reach of Osage's Abe Zawislak.
    A goal two minutes later put Bolivar up 2-0, as #4 ? took a shot, which hit the waiting hands of Zawislak but continued on its trajectory to score in the corner of the net.
    Though Bolivar scored two more times in the game, the defense of the Indians picked up, as Zawislak made some great saves, stretching out and diving to send the ball away. His best save of the night came late in the first half, as Bolivar's shot zipped in high towards the net. Zawislak leaped into the air, hands held high, and punched the ball up, putting it through the goalposts of located behind the net.
    Chris Johnson's playing took the ball away from Bolivar numerous times, with his smart footwork twisting past the opponent's for the ball. But the key to the game was the defense's stand, as the team worked together to prevent a number of scores, including a nice block but Connor Breneman after Zawislak had been drawn out from the goal on the opposite side.
    The Indians were able to threaten a number of times, but their closest call came late in the first as Tristan Hensley drove towards the net and was denied by Bolivar's goalie. Hensley again had a close shot in the second, taking a long shot from twenty yards out and was denied once again.
    With the 4-0 shutout, the Indians finished their regular season with a record of 6-17-1, and will host the district tournament, with their first match coming on Monday, Nov. 4 against Crocker.
