Lady Pirates Top Red Devils 4-0
Playing their second game of the week, the Lady Pirate Soccer team defeated the Jeffersonville High School JV team 4-0 at home. The Pirates came out strong, with Ilayah Keltner scoring in the sixth minute assisted by Motsinger. Motsinger found the back of the net in the 21st minute, followed by another goal in the 23rd minute, with Ilayah netting her second goal of the night in the 26th minute.
The Pirates found themselves up 4-0 at halftime. “We were combining and had good energy in the first half. Jeff had a few looks on goal, which gives us things to work on defensively next week when we take on their varsity.”
Credit does need to also be given to the back line of Hawk, Fielding, Wight, Guivas, Romero, Perez, Guzman, and Brenley Berger in goal for the shut out.
The Devils held the Pirates 0-0 in the second half leaving the game as it was at halftime. “It was a good win for our kids, with a lot of players learning new things. We did not come out with the same energy and intensity as the first half though. We will have to find a way to put together a full 80 minutes. Jeff played a good second half.”
The Pirates outshot the Devils with 20 shots on goal to 2.
We are looking forward to a tough match against their Varsity next week. Our next game is on the road Tuesday against Southwestern.
