Lady Pirates improve to 4-1 overall and 4-0 in the NCMC
Boonville senior Cali Jo McAreavy picked up her seventh and eighth goals of the season Tuesday night in NCMC action at the BHS Sports Complex as the Lady Pirates defeated Moberly by a score of 4-0.
Boonville, improving to 4-1 overall and 4-0 in the conference, opened the first half with a 3-0 lead against the Lady Spartans. However the match was one-sided to say the least as the Lady Pirates finished with 38 shot attempts and 18 shots on goal compared to just two shot attempts and one shot on goal by Moberly.
Boonville coach Tim Brown said the girls had some trouble finishing this match, but the pressure and possession were the best he has seen this season.
“The second half alone, we allowed no attempts on our goal (in fact, goalkeeper Haylee Thomas maybe only touched the ball once or twice in the second period) and we took 20 shots. Unfortunately, we only got one goal out of it.”
While McAreavy had two goals on the night, it was sophomore Brynn Edwards who opened the game with the Lady Pirates first goal on an assist from Sophie Taube at the 4-minute mark. McAreavy then picked up her first of two goals at the 28-minute mark on an assist from Bailey Magyar. One minute later at the 29-minute mark, Sariana Barbarotta picked up her second assists of the season on a goal by Hannah Fuemmeler to extend the lead to 3-0.
The goal was Fuemmeler’s fifth of the season.
In the second half, Edwards assisted McAreavy on the Lady Pirates only goal of the half at the 47-minute mark to make it 4-0.
Senior goalie Haylee Thomas finished the match with one save for the Lady Pirates.
In the JV match, Boonville improved to 4-1 on the season by beating Moberly 3-0.
Freshman Sariana Barbarotta had all three goals in the match for Boonville, all unassisted, at the 25, 30 and 31 minute mark.
The Lady Pirates also out-shot Moberly 21-0 on shot attempts and 12-0 on shots on goal.
Brown said another solid JV Lady Pirate defensive performance: no shots allowed against the JV Lady Spartans. “If they can all just find a little more desire in front of goal,” Brown said. “Freshman sub Sariana Barbarotta had all three goals, unassisted, in the final 20 minutes of the match.”
