After being shutout in three consecutive matches, the Pirates finally had one go their way against Fulton while winning in a shootout against the Hornets 2-1.
Boonville soccer coach Kaz James said the Pirates won 4-3 in  penalty kicks in the shootout.
“This was an awesome game to be a part of,” James said. “The boys played with a lot of heart and stuck together as a team when they were down. Will Rehagen had the goal to get us back in the game. The younger players stepped up and everyone contributed in some kind of way for the win tonight. It was an outstanding game for the boys as we needed a win like this. Sam Esser, Josh Chrisman, Trevor Firman and Will Rehagen made their penalty kicks in the shootout. Gabe Lorenz also made two big saves in penalty kicks to help us win.”
