MOLLY HELPS BD BEAT AVON. Molly (shown here disrupting a drive by Avon's Michelle Sauer) played tenacious defense in the Ben Davis girls' match with the state's #2 ranked team, Avon, on Monday. Ben Davis defeated the Lady Orioles, 5-3. Lauren Chaney, who plays on the U.S. National women's team, scored all 5 goals for BD. But behind Lauren's ability score was a strong defensive effort across the backfield, denying a high-scoring group of Avon seniors throughout the game. On Wednesday, the Lady Giants defeated Warren Central by a score of 2-1. That puts BD's season record at 9-1 and should move them up from #9 in the state poll that comes out next Tuesday.
