Soccer team having best season to date

by Tad Brewer
Landmark reporter

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 Spoofhounds.

Maryville and Platte County played a tight, low scoring game that could have gone either team's way, if either team made a mistake.

Maryville was able to get on the scoreboard first and looked as though they would be able to pull off a close victory over the Pirates.

Despite the momentum that Maryville had with their lead and home field advantage, the Pirates could not be completely ruled out.

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 Night.

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 LeBlond’s 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.
