Lady Pirate Soccer Takes Down Southern 8-0

The Charlestown Lady Pirate soccer team (1-1 overall; 0-0 MSC) hosted Southern High School from Louisville on Thursday night at Charlestown Middle School. The Lady Pirates played well, and took down Southern 8-0 on the hot, muggy evening. Illayah Keltner and Tayte Motsinger led the scoring with each having hat-tricks, followed by goals from Jessaca Rawson and Lexi White. Assists were recorded by Cheyenne Hawk, Illayah Keltner, Tayte Motsinger (3) and Machayla Hawkins. In total, the Pirates outshot Southern 18-2, holding them to the shutout. Southern fought hard until the end, with a young team and a small roster. “We saw a lot of improvement tonight from our first game last week. The kids implemented a lot of what we taught them in practice and executed it well. It was exciting to watch the girls work hard and with each other to achieve their first win in a few seasons,” commented a very proud Head Coach Chelsea Grover, picking up her first win as the new Lady Pirate Head Coach. “There were also lessons to learn from this game, to continue to improve throughout the season.” The Lady Pirates (1-1 overall) will open up conference play next Wednesday as they host the Corydon Central Lady Panthers. The match on Wednesday against Corydon will be at Charlestown High School. For more information on the Lady Pirate Soccer program, stay tuned to Charlestown Pirate Pride Sports Broadcasting.
