Pirate soccer
team improves
record to 6-3

by Tad Brewer
Landmark reporter

The Platte County Pirate soccer team rose to 6-3 on the season after defeating Cameron.

This was the first time that Platte County and the Cameron Dragons had ever competed against each other. Both teams are in the Midland Empire Conference, and were fighting to get the win.

This is the inaugural season for Cameron so neither team knew what to expect of the other.

Platte County was able to easily overpower the Dragons by a final score of 8-0.

Not only did the Pirates get the win against Cameron the first time that they played, but they also were able to completely shut Cameron out.

Senior Dusty Hylton was the leading scorer for Platte County. Hylton was able to obtain a hat trick by scoring three goals on Cameron.

Several other players also had one goal apiece against the Dragons.

Seniors Kevin Skarbek and Adam Siems each had a goal of their own. Sophomore Steve Fisher added his own goal on Cameron. Freshmen T.G. Frame and Will Sanders piled on goals as well.

The next home game for the Pirate soccer team comes Sept. 27 against Benton. They will also be competing at the North Kansas City Tournament, which takes place on Sept. 28-29.
