The Lady Pirates hosted Rising Sun for their first home game of the season. Just like with the season opener, the Pirates struck first and quickly. Junior Captain Macey Smith settled an assist from Junior Captain Emilee Ernstes in the net in the first six minutes. The Shiners took over from there. Rising Sun was able to bring the score to 3-1 at the half.
In the second half, the Pirates were able to take a combined 12 shots on goal, one being a PK, but were unable to catch the Shiners. The score would remain a Pirate loss at the buzzer with the final score of 3-1.
Senior Captain Keeper Ella Lowe was able to keep 15 of the Shiner’s shots from making it on the scoreboard. Even with the final score and the shot count on Lowe, the starting defense did pretty well against a fast front of Rising Sun. This game’s defensive line starters were Senior Emily Million, Senior Scotlynn Reinhold, Senior Lillian Wheatley, and Freshman Genevieve Smith.
Lady Pirates host a home game on Saturday against Union County. The game starts at 10 am.
