Mid-Prairie loses another close match
WEST LIBERTY – The Mid-Prairie girls’ soccer team lost to the West Liberty Comets 2 – 1 on Thursday, April 10. The Hawks played the game with only two substitutes as they were missing four players, including three key starters, who were on the Iowa Mennonite School’s choir tour.
The Comets scored midway through the second half but the Golden Hawks quickly rallied to even the game. Sophomore midfielder Natalie Graber finished her first-ever varsity goal to tie the game.
With 15 minutes left in the match, the Comets countered with a long-distance floater that barely sailed over senior goalkeeper Ballie Harris’ head.
“I’m proud of how hard the girls worked and the opportunities we created. Kira Kerkove gave us solid effort for 80 minutes. We’re going to need to work on finishing, though,” Mid-Prairie head coach Maya Kehr Yoder said.
The Golden Hawks drop to 0 – 3 and will be back in action with a full squad against the Demons this afternoon in Washington.
