Published: August 21, 2014 10:34 PM EDT

(ELIDA) - Bluffton and Ottoville fought to a 1-1 draw in boys soccer in a semifinal of the Elida Kickoff Classic.  Normally, regular season matches do not go to shootouts but with the case of this tournament the teams went down that path.  The Big Green were victorious and moved on to face Elida in the Kickoff Classic Final on Saturday.  The Pirates will face Fort Jennings in the Consolation game.  Fort Jennings fell 5-0 to Elida in the other match tonight. 

Eli Bourassa found the net again for Bluffton.  The sophomore has scored in both of Bluffton's opening games which have ended in a 1-1 tie.  Tonight, the Pirate assist went to Tristan Smucker.  Bluffton held a 6-5 advantages in shots on goal and Pirate keeper Joe Schriner made three saves in goal. 

Ottoville is now 2-0-1 on the season and Bluffton stands at 0-0-2.
