Lady Pirates record 13th shutout in 6-0 win over Kirksville
The hat tricks just keep coming for the Boonville Lady Pirates soccer team.
After back-to-back hat tricks by junior Cali Jo McAreavy and one by Brynn Edwards over the weekend in the Central Missouri Soccer Invitational in Camdenton, the Lady Pirates had yet another hat trick last night on the road against the Kirksville Lady Tigers as sophomore Hannah Fuemmeler squeaked in three goals to lead Boonville to a 6-0 victory.
While the win improved Boonville’s record to 16-0 overall and 9-0 in the NCMC, it also marked the 13th shutout of the season.
Boonville Lady Pirates soccer coach Tim Brown said 2-0 JV and 6-0 varsity, on the road, are both more than decent wins, but for some reason they never really looked sharp. “Maybe everyone was just a little sluggish after a long, hot bus ride-uncharacteristically, we dribbled a lot of balls away, we didn’t position ourselves well for tackles/interceptions, and our finishing was off. All that being said, we did keep our goalkeeper comfortable, and we created a couple quick-counterattack goals through the middle of the field-sophomore forward Hannah Fuemmeler finished three of them.”
In all, three different players scored for Boonville while four had at least one assist in the game.
Of course it took 27 minutes for the Lady Pirates to get their first goal as McAreavy scored on an assist from Paige Peterson. Peterson and McAreavy would hook up again eight minutes later on a goal at the 35-minute mark to extend the lead to 2-0 at the half.
The second half was pretty much like the first, with Boonville scoring four goals at the 45, 49, 59 and 76-minute mark.
The first goal of the second half came on the assist from McAreavy to Brynn Edwards at the 45-minute mark. Four minutes later, Peterson picked up her third assists of the night on the goal by Fuemmeler. Kate Peterson also got in on the action with an assist to Fuemmeler at the 59-minute mark to make it 5-0. Then, to closeout the scoring in the game, Blake Allison assisted Fuemmeler for her third goal of the night at the 76-minute mark.
To go along with the shutout against Kirksville, the Lady Pirates also finished the match with 31 shot attempts and 17 shots on goal while Kirksville had one and one.
Junior goalie Haylee Thomas also had one save in the game.
In the JV game, Boonville also remained unbeaten on the season by blanking Kirksville 2-0.
While improving to 10-0 on the season, the Lady Pirates scored both goals in the first half with Ella Reisinger assisting Blake Allison on the first goal at the 22-minute mark. Then, at the 29-minute mark, Leigha Vollmer picked up an assist on the goal by Maddie Weber.
In all, Boonville had 17 shot attempts and seven shots on goal while Kirksville was shutout for the match.
