Effingham and St. Anthony played to a 0-0 tie in soccer competition Thursday evening on the Bulldogs home field.
The Bulldogs had eight shots on goal while the Hearts had four shots. Effingham's Frank Kasdorf had eight saves and St. Anthony's Zach Tegeler had four saves.
Effingham is now 3-3-1 on the season.
"Due to coaches not discussing resolution of a tie prior to the match, the crossstown rivalry left both teams without any bragging rights," said St. Anthony Coach Scott Demers. "One might have thought it would be an offensive thrashing put on by the Effingham Hearts after just 30 seconds and Tyler Katz placed a shot from 35 yards away near the top of the goal which SAHS goal-keeper, Zach Tegeler, saved. But, contrary to that thought, it was a defensive battle.
"Both teams struggled to find shots on goal with just four shots for each squad, Effingham Hearts controlled the ball a majority of the half. The second half saw a change in momentum and St. Anthony produced some great scoring opportunities but just couldn't get it past Hearts keeper, Frankie Kasdorf.
"The game ended in a 0-0 deadlock with both teams looking for answers. St. Anthony MVPs were Kyle Hartke and James Kabbes for working the ball forward and providing feeds that led to scoring opportunities and solid defense."
St. Anthony's record is now 3-1-3.
Carlyle played host to Altamont and sent the Indians home with a 2-0 loss. Altamont is now 0-7-1 on the season.
Carlyle scored its first goal at the 10:00 mark in the first half. The second goal came in the second half at 20:00.
Altamont had 10 shots, five on goal. Adam Doty had 10 saves. Carlyle has 17 shots, 12 on goal and five saves.
