Nevada neutralizes PCM soccer boys

by Ryan Kohlhof

On a slightly toasty day, the PCM boys’ soccer team prepared to battle it out against invading Nevada. Nevada’s boys left the field and headed back home with their first win of the season, 3-1, while the PCM boys continued their losing streak.
“I think the energy was pretty consistent through the game,” PCM Head Coach Darrin Telfer said. “However, we can always improve. We are improving from game to game, as individuals, and hopefully we continue to grow as a team, as well. We need to continue to work on communication and the anticipation of the next pass, etc.”
The first half was dominated as Nevada ran two points up against the Mustangs. The Mustangs, however, could take plenty of shots on goal, but without any avail; they had no scores by the half. The second half was full of vigor, as both teams scored once. Also, early into the second, a Nevada player received a yellow card for his over-aggression. A penalty kick was awarded to PCM, and that is where they got their score, when Lynnville-Sully freshman Tony Merrill stuck it in the right-hand corner.
The PCM boys’ next game will be at Chariton tonight, April 23, with JV starting at 5:30 p.m., followed by varsity at 7 p.m.
