Jeff Squeezes Past Lady Pirate Soccer 2-1

In a close heated second half, the Pirates end up falling short to the Red Devils 2-1 at Home on Wednesday night.

The Devils got on the board early, scoring within the first seven minutes. They came out firing with speed, aggression, and willingness to win every 50-50 battle. The Pirates woke up about mid way through the first half evening the score at 1. Tayte Motsinger found an opening in the midfield and took it alone beating the Devil defense and finding the back of the net.

Jeffersonville continued to possess and create opportunities, finishing on one of them to be up at halftime 2-1. Jeffersonville goals were scored by Hazel Dickey and Kylee Luce.

The Pirates weren’t going down without a fight, and played a tough second half, nearly putting a few away, but came up empty handed. “We are very proud of our girls for the way they battled back in the second half. We fought hard until the very end, but couldn’t find the back of the net. Jeffersonville was a great challenge for us, as they connected passes and kept possession far more than the other teams we have played against. ”

Brenley Berger was busy for us in goal tonight and kept the score close as she made 12 saves from Jeffersonville’s 21 shot count.

“Every single kid that played in the second half for us gave 110%. Freshman Machayla Hawkins was a fireball up top for us tonight and lifted our energy in the second half.” We are excited to see improvements being made and how much our team has learned so far this season.

The Pirates will play at our last home on Tuesday against Scottsburg at 6:00pm.
