Lady Pirate Soccer Falls in Sectional 2-3

Charlestown Lady Pirates and Corydon played a hard fought MSC rematch in the first round of sectionals at Madison.

Both teams came out ready to play on this Tuesday evening; one looking to repeat their regular season win and the other looking for revenge. The Lady Pirates came out on top (2-1) during the regular season but couldn’t pull out the win in sectionals.

Charlestown had more shots on goal during the first half but only Corydon was able to put one of theirs away (25:11 Lilly Wolfe).

Charlestown scored first during the second half (19:40 Jessaca Rawson) but couldn’t hold on and allowed a second goal from Corydon just a minute and a half later (18:12 Gracie Paden). Coyrdon scored one more before the game was over (12:14 Gracen Lander).

Charlestown played hard down to the final minutes and scored a second goal with only 2 minutes remaining in the game (2:18 Ilayah Keltner).

Although the Lady Pirates pushed to the very last second, they couldn’t muster another goal and their season ended in the first round.

“I really thought we could come back there at the end. Something sparked a fire and we really looked like we wanted it. Unfortunately, we waited to long to kick it in gear and time wasn’t on our side. Both games we played against Corydon this year were well played on both sides of the field. Regardless of the score, I’m proud of the way these girls kept playing to the end of the game. I know it’s been a long season for my players, especially since we’ve been battling injuries and low numbers, but I’m thankful for the group of girls that came out this season and the effort they gave me. It’s been a fun season and I look forward to next year.

First half:  CHS 0 / CCHS 1; Second half:  CHS 2 / CCHS 1; Final score:  CHS 2 / CCHS 3
