Rockets end lady Pirates’ season, 1-0
“It was looking like it was going to be a well matched game - the final score suggests that as well,“ said head coach Brian Crockett of his eleventh seeded lady Pirates who lost to sixth seeded and district champion, lady Goddard Rockets of Goddard High School by a score of 1-0 in a soccer showdown.
The lady Rockets scored a goal as the first half was winding down. That goal was good enough for them to win and send the lady Pirates back home and an early exit to the state tournament. “The goal they scored was one of the few mistakes our defense made - they got around and we didn’t cover what we should have covered,” said Crockett. “The goal was a ‘lucky ’goal as they had been pressuring and were unable to get in - a good shot from their attack,” said Crockett.
