Boys Soccer Shuts Out Austin

The Charlestown Boys Soccer team (5-2-2 overall; 3-1-1 MSC) hosted MSC opponent Austin on Tuesday night at Charlestown High School and had no issues taking down the Eagles from Scott County. The Pirates scored early and often, with 4 goals by Sergio Bolanos, 1 goal by Jose Saldana, 1 goal by Efron Carrillo, and 1 goal by Ian Flora. The Pirates controlled the game from the opening kick and the movement of the ball is taking great effect into their winning ways as of late. “The Pirates are looking better and better week after week,” commented Brian Wight, Head Coach, “much needed rest this week as we get ready to travel to Lanesville on Tuesday night.” The Pirates (5-2-2 overall) will step out of conference play to face off against Lanesville on Tuesday night, traveling to Lanesville. The match is set to begin at 6:00pm.

Pirates Soccer Ties Madison

The Charlestown Pirate Soccer team (1-1-2 overall; 0-0-1 MSC) took on Madison at home on Tuesday night. The Pirates tied an extremely good Madison team whom have previously defeated the Pirates in recent years. Raul Martinez scored the tying goal with 30 seconds left in the match to save the game for the Pirates. An extremely happy Coach Wight commented the following after the game, “very proud of the boys, they never quit and kept fighting until the very end. Once again the movement of players with and without the ball were very good. The boys are getting better each game. This team is starting to play excellent soccer.” The Pirates will be back in action tonight as they face off on the road against MSC rival Scottsburg.
