Pirates Drop Contest at Madison

The Charlestown Pirate Soccer team traveled to Madison for a non-conference clash with the Cubs.  The Junior Varsity recorded a 5-0 win however the Varsity fell 1-3.  “Tonight was another game where we lost our concentration.  It was very unfortunate that the Pirate’s lost the help of their captain due to a head injury.  Madison was an organized team and put up a difficult match, winning 3-1.  Hopefully the Pirate’s learned some more things tonight and will continue to put forth a good effort.  I have high hopes for our upcoming home game”, summarized Pirate Head Coach Christian Martinez.  Charlestown sole goal came in the second half at the 5 minute mark by Pascual Gonzalez with an assist by Andrew Mattingly.  The night ended with the Pirates taking 22 shots, which 10 were on goal with Madison taking 13 shots, with 7 on goal.  Pirate Goalie Matt Parrella had 4 saves and allowed three.  The Pirates will next host Scottsburg in MSC play.
