4/17-18/2015 Moberly Tournament - 5th place 1-1-1

 (Story by Coach Lance Harvey)
     We finished the tournament 5th place out of ten teams. Last year we won the Red division title but this year's format was different. All ten teams played three matches and the winner was determined by point totals. 7 for a win, 3 for a tie and 2 points for a shutout. They also awarded 1 point for every 3 goals scored up to six goals. The maximum amount for any win was 13.
     We won our first match 3-2 over Mexico. Mexico scored first in the 14th minute. Lindy scored on an 35 yard free kick 22 minutes into the first half. The halftime score was 1-1. Lindy scored another goal 3 minutes into the first half and Karson scored three minutes later. Mexico got a late Penalty Kick and converted but we had the game in hand the whole time. We received 8 points for the win. They are a possible district opponent for us.
     In the Saturday 9 o clock game we lost to a strong Camdenton team. They were the winner from last year and also took the title this year with 29 points.
     They controlled the possession for most of the game but our defense was great against their attack. Their goal came in the first half off of a free kick from about 30 yards out. It was struck perfectly and the ball slid just under the cross bar into the upper right corner. Nothing Jaylene could do about it.
     We made some adjustments at halftime and we created a few opportunities to score but couldn't find the net. With thirty seconds left we were awarded a free kick and Morgan Grable it a great shot that went over the keepers head and glance off the crossbar. Score was 1-0.
     In the third game we played Winfield, a St. Louis suburb who had already picked up two wins. The game was back and forth but no one managed to score. It ended in a 0-0 tie. Which gave each team 5 points. We played minus three starters but we got some good minutes from Natalie Minnick, Ruthie Vinson, Mykel Heese and Gracie Ellis. Winfield ended up in third place with 23 points.
     Outstanding players for the tournament were Morgan Grable, Lindy, Baily Fox and Mariah Cox.
