The Charlestown HS Pirate Soccer team hosted the River City Jaguars Tuesday evening on Dutch Reis Field. The Junior Varsity Pirates were victorious over the visiting Jags 4-2; thanks to Pirate goals by Elijah Cooley (2 goals), Joseph Jensen, and Michael Jewell. The Varsity team didn’t fare so well, logging a 1-5 setback. Pirate Bryce Wray scored Charlestown’s one goal at the 38:39 minute mark in the 1st half with an assist from Eric Sipes. Aric Hooker had 7 saves, and the Pirates had 14 shots with 11 on goal; while the River City Jaguars had 23 shots with 13 on goal.
“We started our season with a bad loss. I did not see what I expected from the players, especially since we have been practicing for the last 2.5 months. I did not see any passing or talking or any real physical work on the field. After beginning the 2nd half, I did see some improvement. I feel that the players slacked again towards the end of the game. We have 2 practices this week that will allow us time to work with the players and reflect on today’s game. On a different note, I am happy with the performance of the JV team. I know we will work hard to get back on track because I have a lot of faith in this group of kids”, commented Pirate Head Coach Christian Martinez.
The Lady Pirate Golf team matched up with Silver Creek Tuesday evening, defeating them for the third straight time 238 to 244. Charlestown scores included Andrea McCoy’s 57, Kylan Burke and McKenna Harbin both shot a 60, and Lizzy Hill a 61.
“We improved our team score by 12 strokes from last match. I am very proud of the improvement I saw today. The girls are hitting the ball better, and it’s showing in their team scores”, commented Lady Pirate Head Coach Kim Carroll.
Next Match: Tuesday, Aug 21 against Silver Creek and New Washington
