Alter girls ousted by Indian Hill

Staff report

WEST CHESTER — Indian Hill jumped out early and put an end to Alter’s season, beating the Knights 4-2 in a Division II girls soccer regional semifinal Tuesday at Lakota West High School.

Indian Hill led in the first half before Alter mounted a comeback.

“Once it was 3-0, it really started hitting us,” Alter coach Javier Iriart said. “We kept calm for a while, then we got one back before the end of the half.”

Avalee Hagerty scored for Alter, then Emma Bockrath. The two goals cut Indian Hill’s lead to 3-2 in the second half, but that was as far as the Knights could get.

“They scored in the fourth when we were really pushing numbers forward,” Iriart said. “The score wasn’t a reflection of the game, but they played better than us, that’s for sure.”

Alter (13-6-1) won a Greater Cincinnati League title this year and made the state semifinals last year.

“I think it’s progress for the program, even it isn’t what it was last year,” Iriart said. “But the underclassmen can learn from this.”
