Lady Pirate Soccer Picks Up BIG MSC Win

The Charlestown Lady Pirates Soccer team (2-1 & 1-0 MSC) clashed with their Mid-Southern Conference rivals from Corydon Wednesday evening; playing a hard fought match that continued down to the final seconds.  Neither team was able to score in the first half, but both had many attempts.  Charlestown marked 7 shots on goal, while Corydon had 13.  Senior Tayte Motsinger put away the two goals for Charlestown in the second half; one with 26 minutes remaining and the second with 12 minutes remaining.  Motsinger alone had 9 of the team’s 11 total shots on goal.  The Panthers’ goal came with 6 minutes left in the game by Abi Miller; while totally 20 shots on goal.  Brenley Berger, keeper for Charlestown, made 17 saves to keep her team in the game.   The game ended 2-1 and the Lady Pirates finishing with their first Mid-Southern Conference win of the season.  “I’m proud of the way these girls continue to push even when they have nothing left to give.  We have a small team and with injuries through out the game it would be easy to give up, but our players work hard for the entire time they’re out on the field and I cannot ask for anything more than that.  I’m seeing improvements on things we have worked on in practices and as we continue to make strides in the right direction, a winning score at the end of the game is only part of the victory”, commented Lady Pirate Head Coach Kelsey Rogers.  Charlestown is back in action on Thursday at Jeffersonville.
