Soccer team having best
season to date
The Platte County soccer team is currently having its
best season since the program was established.
They had won all but three of their games as they headed
up to Maryville to take on their conference rival Maryville
Maryville and Platte County played a tight, low scoring
game that could have gone either team's way, if either

With time and opportunities winding down, senior Adam
Siems of Platte County blasted the Pirates only goal.
The game resulted in a 1-1 tie, as neither team could
score in the shootout. This was the first tie of the season
for the Pirates.
Two days after the tough tie at Maryville, LeBlond traveled
to Platte County to challenge the Pirates on Senior/Parent
The Pirates gave their parents a game to remember with
another close and grueling matchup. Siems had another
clutch goal for the Pirates that sent the game into overtime
with another 1-1 tie. This game against LeBlond would
not end a tie as the other game had.
Senior David Reeder scored the only goal of the shootout
for the Pirates. Senior goalkeeper Keenan Moore stopped
all of LeBlonds shots from entering the goal. Tough
defensive play and timely scoring gave the Pirates a tough
2-1 victory, keeping Platte County undefeated at home
so far this season.
The next games for the Pirates come at St. Pius and Kearney.
Platte County travels to take on conference rival Smithville,
at Smithville Oct. 18. The next home game for the Pirates
is scheduled to take place Oct. 23, against Pembroke Hill.
