For the second game in a row, the Boonville Lady Pirates soccer team failed to score a goal Tuesday night on the road against the Columbia Hickman Kewpies.
After losing in the season opener last Friday against Rock Bridge 4-0, the Lady Pirates again failed to score in the first half against Hickman while trailing 2-0 while giving up goals at the 11 and 13 minute mark. Meanwhile, in the second half, the Kewpies added three more goals at the 68, 73 and 79 minute mark to extend the lead to 5-0.
Boonville Lady Pirates soccer coach Kaz James said the girls came out flat in the first half and were down 2-0 going into the second half. “In the second half we came out creating some opportunities going to goal, but were unable to find the back of the net,” James said. “Our first touch was off tonight and really hurt us on keeping control of the ball. These games we played first at the beginning of the season will only help us farther down the road.”
Hickman also out-shot Boonville with 20 shot attempts and 13 shots on goal compared to three shot attempts and only two shots on goal for the Lady Pirates.
The Kewpies also had nine fouls in the match compared to six for Boonville, who dropped to 0-2 on the season.
As far as saves, goalie Sarah Miller finished the match with seven.
Hickman also won the JV match against Boonville 5-1.
The Lady Kewpies scored all five goals within the first 21 minutes, which began one minute into the match. Hickman’s JV also answered with goals at the 5, 7, 18 and 21 minute mark.
Boonville’s only goal of the match came at the 23rd minute on a unassisted goal by Kyla Farris.
James said the JV team was able to find the net, but came up short. “We will only get better as the season goes on and continue to learn,” James said.
Kewpies also finished the match with nine shot attempts and 11 shots on goal while Boonville had six shot attempts and two shots on goal.
JV goalie Julianne Bromagen had six saves for the Lady Pirates, who dropped to 0-2 on the season.
