Mus­tangs Soc­cer Team Chalks Up 2 Losses

McDonald County Press - - SPORTS - Rick Peck

Monett scored four first-half goals on the way to hand­ing the McDon­ald County Mus­tangs soc­cer team a 6-0 loss on Sept. 7 at Loyce Shell­nut Soc­cer Field in An­der­son.

The Cubs’ first goal of the game on a header of a loose ball in front of the McDon­ald County goal. The goal came fol­low­ing a cor­ner kick that was not cleared by the Mus­tangs. The Cubs made it 2-0 on a break­away goal just a minute later.

Monett’s fi­nal two goals of the first half came on a header from a cor­ner kick and a short shot when the Mus­tangs failed to clear a shot from out­side the box.

McDon­ald County’s best op­por­tu­nity to score came on a penalty kick, but the shot was blocked by the Monett goalie.

The Mus­tangs fell to 2-4 for the sea­son en­ter­ing their Sept. 11 match against Pitts­burg and their Sept. 14 match at Carthage.
