The Lady Hornets continued to make strides in the young season
by defeating the Moberly Lady Spartans 7-0. The scoring
started early for Chillicothe with a finish by Maggie Pfaff on
a corner kick by Sydney Baxter at the 1:02 mark of the game.
The offensive pressure continued as Sarah Graves took a
pass from Addie Ficken to make it 2-0 at the 2:44 mark. To not
be outdone by her senior counterparts, Lucy Reeter took a
through ball from Allison Ishmael to put the freshman in the
scoring book at the 7:39 mark to make it 3-0 early in the
contest. Moberly was able to settle down a bit and keep the
Lady Hornets at bay until the 37:38 mark when Pfaff took an
assist from Ishmael to lace one in the far corner to make it
4-0 just before halftime.
Chillicothe opened the second half the way they started
the first, with offensive pressure and suffocating defense.
Reeter took another ball unassisted this time and made the
score 5-0 at the 48:00 minute mark of the game. Graves took a
que from the freshman and got a pass from Julia Stimpson to
put her 2nd goal of the game in the net to make it 6-0. The
score stayed that way until Magy Thomas scored an unassisted
sky chicken with 50 seconds left in the contest to make the
final score 7-0.
Another solid outing by the defense of Baxter, Dowell,
Ross and Lewis. But what canít be forgotten is the stout
defense Ficken provides in the midfield for the Lady Hornets.
This is the second shutout for the defense and keeper Kennedie
The win brings the Lady Hornets to 2-1 on the
young season. Next match is Tuesday at St. Pius with varsity
starting at 5:00 pm.
