JV team also wins by shutout 3-0
Neither the rain or cold could stop Boonville freshman Alec Adair for having perhaps his best game of the season last night against Cole Camp at the BHS Sports Complex.
With just one week left in the regular season, Adair came up big for the Pirates last night while recording a hat trick with three goals in a 5-0 victory.
While the win improved Boonville’s record to 8-10 overall, head coach Tim Brown said on a chilly, windy, somewhat rainy night, the Pirates managed to keep control for most of the match. “We got a little lazy and sloppy in the second half, and we missed a plethora of good chances; luckily, we finished some early, and we stayed composed enough at the back to get another shutout,” Brown said.
Adair scored the first of his three goals at the 7 minute mark in the first on an assist from junior Tyler Drew. Then, to expand the lead to 2-0, freshman Joshua Udinyiwe assisted Drew on his first goal. Of course the Pirates didn’t stop there. With the inclement weather pouncing on both teams off and on in the first half, Boonville added yet another score at the 39 minute mark on an assist from freshman Brady Gholson to Adair to make it 3-0 at the break.
The Pirates never looked back from that point on, with Adair adding another goal at the 76 minute mark. Then, at the 80 minute mark, Allan Wilkinson assisted Drew for his second goal of the match to round out the scoring.
Boonville finished the match with 37 shot attempts and 16 shots on goal while Cole Camp had 11 and 7, respectively.
Senior goalie Nathan Green also had seven saves in the match.
In JV action, Boonville defeated Cole Camp 3-0.
The JV Pirates, 5-6-3 on the season, scored at the 20 minute mark on an assist from Trey Schler to Nathan Green. Then, at the 25 minute mark, Trent Monk assisted Green for his second goal of the match. Meanwhile, in the second half, Braden Adams assisted Gabe Fenton on a goal at the 37 minute mark.
Brown said the JV Pirates found the finishing touch against the visiting JV Bluebirds. “The defense also held their opponents to only one shot attempt,” Brown said.
Boonville’s JV also finished the match with nine shot attempts and five shots on goal while Cole Camp had one and one, respectively.
Boonville goalie Matt Shafer, meanwhile, had one save.
