On Monday, the Giants began the Marion County Tournament beating Southport after a 0-0 score in regular time led to BD inching out the 4-3 win in a penalty shoot-out.

The boys will head to Pike for the second round tonight. That will be followed by one final conference matchup at home against Carmel on Thursday. If the Giants beat Pike, they will play in the Marion County semifinals on Saturday morning. BD will then host Brownsburg to begin sectionals next Monday.
