Hounds back at .500 after splitting last two


DANVILLE – Austin Sexton and Brody Rung each scored goals Monday night as Fort Madison edged Danville on the road 2-1 to move the Bloodhounds back to even play on the year.

On Friday night, the Hounds dropped their home finale to Burlington in a tough 1-0 game. The Hounds had six shots on goal against the Grayhounds, two from both Sexton and Rung, but couldn’t find the cords.

Keeper Javier Trejo had seven saves against the one goal, including a first-half shutout, with Burlington scoring the game winner at the 13-minute mark of the second half.

At Danville Monday night Sexton scored at the 29:30 mark on a dual assist from Rung and Reuben Eid. Danville countered with 6:30 gone in the second period when the Bears’ Bryce Carr found the net off a pass from Roberto Carillo.

The Bloodhounds’ Will Larson would then slide a pass to Rung at the 18-minute mark for the game winner.

Fort Madison had 10 shots on goal on the night, five coming from Sexton.

Fort Madison travels to Holy Trinity Catholic’s South Park in West Point on Thursday for a boys/girls doubleheader.
