Kirkwood Mehlville Match Efforts

While it was cool and windy high school soccer action between the JV Kirkwood Pioneers and the Mehlville Panthers was heated up. It was a hard fought 1-1 tie.

At the 7 minute mark of the first half junior defense Elena Pautler scored the first goal of the game to take a 1-0 lead. For most of the first half however the Panthers controlled the offense and the Pioneers’ defense held their lead going into intermission.

The Pioneers continued to protect their one goal lead in coming into the second half and their offense was pushing the Panther’s defense. With just a little over five minutes on the clock Tori Feibum kicked one across the Pioneer’s goal line to tie the game up.

Both sides put the pressure on for the remaining side but neither side got the advantage and the game ended in a tie. It was hard work by goaltenders Anna McKinnon for the Panthers and freshmen Brooke Riggles for the Pioneers.

Both coaches echo sentiments that it was a hard fought game. Panther’s coach Todd Lauer stated that his girls have improved tremendously.
