The Boonville Lady Pirates soccer team picked up its fourth shutout of the season on Tuesday by beating Father Tolton 2-0.
The Lady Pirates, who improved to 5-2 overall, have now won five straight matches since the two season opening games against Rock Bridge and Hickman.
Boonville soccer coach Kaz James said the girls started off a little slow in the first half but were able to get a goal early on.
“Brooke Coleman got her first goal of the season,” James said. “MJ Goff and Blake Allison both had a good game in defense and helped by keeping a shutout. Sarah Miller also had another shutout on the season. The girls managed the game well and did not lose their cool when things got ugly on the field. There was many fouls called in the game.”
Nineteen fouls to be exact, with Father Tolton owning one more than the Lady Pirates with 10.
As for the scoring, Boonville led Father Tolton 1-0 at the break on the goal by junior Brooke Coleman and assist by Brynn Edwards. Then, after playing to a goal free game for the rest of the half, the Lady Pirates punched another goal in at the 60 minute mark unassisted by Jaden McKee to extend the lead to 2-0. McKee’s seventh goal of the season turned out to be the last for Boonville as both teams squandered opportunities for the rest of the game.
Boonville finished the match with 12 shot attempts and four shots on goal while Father Tolton had three shots on goal.
Boonville goalie Sarah Miller also had another quiet night with two saves.
In the JV match, Boonville defeated Father Tolton 2-1.
James said it was a physical game that was pretty even sided. “A switch of Macey Nowlin to holding mid and Grace Bronakowski to center back seems to be bringing out the talent in both players,” James said.
McKee scored both goals for the Lady Pirates at the 16 and 39 minute mark. Zoe Coffelt assisted McKee on the second goal.
Father Tolton’s only goal in the match came at the 24 minute mark to tie the game at 1-all.

Lady Pirates nab third straight shutout with 7-0 win over Mexico in NCMC
The Boonville Lady Pirates soccer team could get used to this thing called a shutout.
While hosting the Mexico Bulldogs in NCMC action Monday night at the BHS Sports Complex, the Lady Pirates recorded their third shutout of the season by blanking Mexico 7-0.
The Lady Pirates, improving to 4-2 overall and 4-0 in the NCMC, have now outscored their four conference opponents 35-1.
Boonville Lady Pirates soccer coach Kaz James said the girls set the tone right away early on. “We were able to try some new things last night and moved some people around in different spots,” James said. “Zoe Coffelt got her first goal of her high school career on varsity. The passing in the middle was much better and making runs off the ball is continuing to improve. Brynn Edwards did an excellent job in the center mid by distributing and being dangerous taking shots from outside of the box.”
The Lady Pirates also spread the wealth against Mexico with five different scorers in the game. Senior Kate Peterson and junior Sariana Barbarotta each had two goals on the night while Zoe Coffelt, Maddie Weber and Jaden McKee added one goal each.
Peterson now leads the team with 11 goals while Barbarotta has eight goals and a team-leading seven assists.
Needless to say, this game was over early as Boonville led Mexico 3-0 at the break with goals at the 5, 6 and 9 minute mark. The Lady Pirates also had several scoring opportunities throughout the game but either had the ball hit off the bar or deflect right to the Mexico goalkeeper.
Boonville finished the match with 20 shot attempts and 15 shots on goal while Mexico had only one shot attempt and one shot on goal.
Of course it all started five minutes into the match as Edwards assisted Peterson on a goal to make it 1-0. The Lady Pirates never trailed after that while scoring one minute later on an assisted goal by Barbarotta to extend the lead to 2-0. Then, to complete the scoring in the first half, junior Zoe Coffelt found the back of the net for her first varsity goal of the season at the nine minute mark to push the lead to 3-0.
The second half was pretty much like the first as Boonville scored early and often. Although the score could have easily been 6-0 at the half if not for some bad luck, the Lady Pirates still pretty much scored at will when senior Maddie Weber found the back of the net at the 43 minute mark on an assist by McKee. Boonville would add another goal only eight minutes later when Barbarotta kicked it in on a straight shot from 15 yards out on the assist from Peterson to make it 5-0. Then, after a straight on shot from Peterson from 20 yards out to push the lead to 6-0 at the 53 minute mark, McKee came back and found the net on an assist from Peterson at the 56 minute mark to round out the scoring.
Boonville goalie Sarah Miller had a quiet night with just one save.
As for the JV match, Boonville won by the same identical score of 7-0 to improve to 4-2 on the season.
James said JV team redeemed themselves after a loss to Mexico last season. “Three goals from Jaden McKee, three from Olivia Browning and one from Eliza Adams rounded out the scoring,” James said. “This was a really solid showing from everyone on the field.”
Boonville also led 3-0 at the half, with Browning scoring the first goal at the 10 minute mark on an assist by Amanda Mize. Then, after an unassisted goal by McKee at the 26 minute mark, Browning scored again at the 32 minute mark on an assist by Mille Dorman.
The Lady Pirates would score four times in the second half, with Eliza Adams finding the back of the net at the 34 minute mark on an assist by Mize to make it 4-0. Then, after Browning scored her third goal of the match unassisted for a hat trick at the 42 minute mark, McKee came back with back-to-back goals at the 57 and 59 minute mark to extend the lead to 7-0.
Browning also had an assist on the goal by McKee at the 57 minute mark.
