Scott County girls’ soccer ran into one of the state’s most prolific goal scorers Monday evening.
And the Lady Cards held Raygen Black of Boone County beneath her average night. Unfortunately for SC, Black has been good for a hat trick per game on this young season.
This time she tacked on two more goals – Black’s 16th and 17th of the season – and vaulted the visiting Rebels to a 4-0 victory.
Maddy Hobbs scored first off a corner kick and added two assists for Boone County (5-1). Emily Hunley had the other goal for the Rebels.
SC (2-3) honored its two seniors, Reagan Oliver and Eliza Keeth, prior to the initial home game of their final season.
Oliver, starting in goal after several seasons as a midfielder, made many tough saves to keep the damage to a minimum. Keeth starred defensively along with Summer Scariot and Kate Evans.
Keeth’s freshman sister, Audrey, is out with a broken arm but started the game with a ceremonial kickoff to Eliza. The sisters embraced at midfield before Grace Moore entered the game in Audrey Keeth’s spot.
Kelsie Hall, Daelyn Morrison and Leah Willoughby had the best offensive opportunities for Scott County, but Boone County goalkeeper Morgan Daniels was up to the task with five saves for her third shutout of the season.
