(Story by Coach Lance Harvey)
Lady Hornets Soccer team won their first round game in the Excelsior
Springs tournament with a 4-3 win over St. Joe Benton. Freshmen
forward Lindy Saunders recorded her third two goal game of the
season and Chillicothe also benefited from goals by junior Sarah
Hussey and sophomore Miranda Mammen. The Lady Hornets out-shot the
Cardinals by a margin of 18 to 5 with the total scoring output
limited only by the excellent play of Benton keeper Keely Arbuckle.
Coach Lance Harvey noted that midfielders Addie
Stottlemyre, Brooke Thomas and Laura Turner all played outstanding
games and the defense played extremely solid in front of goalkeeper
Brooke Jettleson. The win evens their record at 3-3. The Hornets
will return to action in the semifinal game of the tourney with a
match up against Liberty North on Friday at 6:45.
