Western Boone shuts down Hornets

Dover — The Western Boone girls soccer team returned home for the first time in a week and a half Tuesday.

The familiar surroundings were just what the team needed to end a two-game losing skid, topping Rossville 2-0.

“We wanted to have a shutout today, so we were excited about that,” Western Boone head coach Jennifer Fisher said. “We wanted to have a good finishing rate and capitalize a little better than we have on our opportunities. That was pretty good; we wanted to finish one or two more off, but overall the finishing was good today.”

The Stars generated strong opportunities all game long, putting 19 shots on goal compared to just two for Rossville.

Western Boone got goals from Wilda Knecht in the first half and Ashley Hieston in the second half to stop the Hornets. Despite only finishing two of the 19 shots on goal, Fisher was happy with the opportunities the Stars generated.

It was also the first time in seven games Western Boone scored more than one goal.
