R-2 WILDCATS SOCCER REPORT
The Montgomery County R-2 Wildcats Soccer team played their last match of the 2013 regular season last Monday, October 28, as they hosted Missouri Military Academy/MMA (from Mexico). The Wildcats saw continued improvement in their overall play, but lost the match 7-0.
The Wildcats were able to get 4 shots on goal in the first half, but were unable to get any of them past MMA’s goalie. MMA scored its first goal at the 7:37 mark of the first half (45-minute halves) to lead 1-0. The Colonels then scored goals at the 9:51 mark, the 20:53 mark, and the 25:12 mark to lead 4-0 at halftime.
The Wildcats were able to get 5 shots on goal in the second half, but again did not score. MMA scored its first goal of the second half at the 11:03 mark to lead 5-0. MMA’s last 2 goals came at the 34:00 mark, and the 38:45 mark to win the match 7-0.
Wildcats’ coach Shanna Barkhume made the following comment about the match “We were able to work some trap plays in this match, which allowed us to have possession of the ball much more than we have in past matches. This showed improvement from earlier in the season, which we hope to continue in the future with this relatively young team.
The Wildcats played Fulton in a First Round match this past Saturday, November 2, in the Missouri Class 1 District 7 Tournament. The tournament is being held in Boonville. Information on this match was not available when this report was written.
If the Wildcats win the Fulton match, they would then play Southern Boone in a Semifinal match this Tuesday, November 5, at 7:00 p.m. The Championship match for the tournament will be played on Thursday, November 7, at 6:00 p.m. The District Champion will earn the opportunity to play in the Missouri State Playoffs.
We wish the Wildcats the best as they do their best to finish the season in a positive way. Go Wildcats!
