Stars battle to 0-0 stalemate with North

BLOOMINGTON – Bedford North Lawrence and Bloomington North battled to a 0-0 deadlock during boys high school soccer action on Saturday.

The Stars (2-1-1) couldn’t quite connect on late scoring chances, but goalie Tanner Robbins kept the Cougars at bay.

“It was pretty exciting for a 0-0 game,” BNL coach Logan Jackson said. “The defense played great, Tanner was great in goal. We had opportunities, we just couldn’t get one in.”

BNL totaled 9 shots (compared to North’s 11). The best chances came in the final 10 minutes as Karter West had two close-range headers turned aside, and Danny Cline ripped a shot off the goal post.

“We had the pressure going,” Jackson said. “It’s hard to be too frustrated against a team we have struggled with in the past. It got a little hectic, but we can’t be too upset.

“We hope we can build some confidence. We have work to do, but this could be the foundation for the rest of the season.”

BNL will visit Silver Creek on Tuesday.
