Greensburg Lady Pirates Soccer Win Over South Ripley Raiders 3-1

The evening started out with two Greensburg Seniors honoring their Influential Faculty Mentors. Captain Shelby Forkert honored Mr. John Pratt. She said this of Mr. Pratt, “Pratt is one of the most caring people that I have ever met. He encourages me to do my absolute best … I think that everyone should have Mr. Pratt in their life because he is honestly one of the best people that I know. I will never forget Mr. Pratt and the impact that he has made on my life.”

Malana Kramer honored Mr. Dustin Smith. She stated, “He taught me to become a better artist by unlocking a part of my brain I didn’t know existed … Mr. Smith has inspired me to pursue a career in art. Watching him enjoy what he does makes me desire to do the same. Thank you, Mr. Smith for everything you have done for me, whether you know it or not.”

The lady Pirates match started out strong by scoring within the first minute of action. Freshman Kadence Rich assisted Junior Captain Genevieve Smith with the quick goal. Smith found the net a second time in the first half with an assist from Junior Madisyn Morlan taking the Pirates into the half up 2-1.

The second half would see the same defensive stand by the Pirates backline led by Senior Captain Malana Kramer. Genevieve Smith would lead a charge from the back line to goal and return the assist to Kadence Rich for a third Pirate goal. The score would remain 3-1 for a Pirate win at the conclusion of the match.

Sophomore Keeper Madeline Shrader would see 12 shots on goal keeping all but one off the scoreboard. Smith would lead the team with six shots on goal. Morlan would have four shots on goal. Junior Sierra Coughlin would see two shots and Rich would see one.

This brings the Pirates to 3-2 for the season. The next match is Thursday (8/31) away against Madison.
