<Complete Season Scores>

(Story by Coach Lance Harvey)

     The Lady Hornets soccer team came home with the third place trophy from the eight team Excelsior Springs tournament this weekend. The hardware came courtesy of a 1-0 victory over North Kansas City High School on Saturday afternoon. Regrouping after a 10-0 semi-final loss on Friday to eventual tournament champs Liberty North, the Hornets put together one of their best defensive games of the season against NKC.
     The ladies created several scoring opportunities in the first have but were unable to finish at the net until the 25th minute when senior forward, Kylie Barton, settled the ball from about 18 yards out and fired a hard shot into the right of the goal. Chillicothe played into a stiff wind in the second half but maintained their lead against the opposing NKC Hornets on the strength of defenders Hope Peters, CyrstenLollar, Carley Anderson and Ashiah St. Onge. Sophomore goalkeeper Brooke Jettleson picked up her second shut out of the season by contributing three point blank saves against the NKC offense toward the end of the game. Coaches Lance Harvey and Mark Dujmovic stated that they were impressed with the Lady Hornets mental and physical toughness after playing three games in four days. “These girls don’t have any quit in them. They play hard the whole game and they are becoming more and more confident with each win.
