    The North Harrison boys’ varsity soccer team might not have won the team first place title in the Charlestown Soccer Invitational Saturday, but Hector Bautista still had a great day for the, scoring five goals in the two games played.
    Salem won 6-5 over North Harrison in the first round, with Bautista scoring a hat trick of goals (3) in this contest.
    “We shouldn’t have lost that game,” said North Harrison coach Duane Boady. “We overplayed in the first half. In the second half, we got careless offensively and defensively.”
    Boady said that he thought they got outplayed around the mid field area, losing possession of the ball to Salem in the process. “We got outplayed in the midfield,” he said.
    In the consolation game, North Harrison defeated Home School Union 5-2.
    Bautista scored a pair of goals in the game, and had help from three other team mates, Colin Book, Tyler Bement, and Jared Richards. Each of them scored a goal in the game.
    “Every now and then, it’s nice to get a win,” Boady said. “My heart’s a little broken from that first game.”
    “We played strong,” Boady continued. “Anytime you get a win, that’s a cherry atop the sundae.”
    Boady also was especially pleased with the steady play of goal keeper Taylor Starcer, who played his first ever varsity matches in the two games North Harrison played Saturday.

    A couple of suspects fleeing by car from Austin police officers and Scott County deputies ran out of luck quickly on Saturday, August 29, in Austin.
    When the chase ended at Austin Community Park, the pair found themselves surrounded by baseball bat-wielding members of the Amick-Baker-Kellems Chapter 156, Fraternal Order of Police. Unbeknown to the pair, FOP members were hosting a softball tournament at the park.
    Taken into custody at the park were the driver, Gregory P. Dilger, 33, Scottsburg, and Stephen R. Perry, 33, Austin, his passenger.
    From Deputy Joe Guarneri's case report, the officer had been in phone contact with Austin Lt. Shawn Hurt just before 5:30 p.m., whop reported to Guarneri that his personal vehicle had nearly been hit head-on by a blue Buick driving southbound on Third Street. Deputy Guarneri soon found the car being driven down the middle of Third St.
At Third and Broadway Streets, the officer said the Buick took the corner and then sped off east on Broadway. That street ends at Community Park, where the FOP tournament was occurring. Deputy Guarneri followed the car, witnessing when the car allegedly passed several vehicles and disregarded stop signs. The vehicle was also seen nearly striking a couple of children on bicycles near the parking lot.
