Reeling from a third straight loss at the hands of Excelsior Springs on Thursday, the Chillicothe Lady Hornets Soccer team returned to Litton Stadium on Monday hoping to notch their first win of the season against St. Joe Benton. The home fans were not disappointed as Chilli came out on top by a score of 4-2.          
     The Hornets went on the offensive early scoring in the fourth minute on a nice shot from forward Lindy Saunders.  They continued to press the attack sending several shots which were thwarted by the either the Benton goalkeeper or the goalpost.  In the 37th minute, Sam Baldwin collected a loose ball in front of the goal and put the ball in the back of the net to make the score 2-0 at halftime.
     Chillicothe came out a little flat in the second half and allowed a breakaway goal in the 50th minute but the Hornets responded quickly when Saunders drove to the goal and dropped a pass to an oncoming Baldwin who hit a wickedly spinning shot past the keeper. For the next ten minutes Chillicothe launched a barrage of shots toward the St. Joe goal but just couldn't connect. Then Benton struck again when the Hornet defense fell asleep and allowed Benton's Savannah Domann into space where she scored her second goal.  In the 76th minute midfielder Leslee Moore was fouled in the penalty area and the ensuing kick was blasted past the Benton keeper by Saunders for her second goal.
     "This was the first game that we looked really comfortable at our positions. Our midfield was outstanding; Leslee Moore, Megan Dominique and Brooke Thomas all had great games. Our offense was aggressive and our defense, with the exception of a couple of hiccups, played well", said Coach Lance Harvey.
