Blanchester is 3-6-2 overall and 3-4-2 in the National Division.

“This was a very nice win for us,” BHS coach Andrew Freeman said. “It has felt like we’ve been right there in many games this year but couldn’t get over the hump.”

“Our defense did a great job to shut them down in the second half along with keeper Zach West having 16 saves,” Freeman said.
