The Nixa Lady Eagles get another win by beating Branson 7-0. The Lady Eagles came out flat against a game Lady Pirate team. It took the ladies a little while to figure out not only the opponent but the wind in their face. Nixa would score the eventual game winner 12 minutes in from Shelby Zielke’s corner kick which found Ashlyn Robillard’s head. It was a beautiful goal to get the Lady Eagles going. Rachel Murphy would get the second goal from a Courtney Frerichs pass. Lauren Moats got the third goal from Kelsey Haist and Murphy ended the first half scoring with Zielke getting her second assist of the half. The second half had freshman Jordyn Hoskins collecting a ball outside the box and hitting a nice shot over the goalie for the 5th goal which was her first varsity goal. Kelsey Bartell made a nice couple of moves to get in the box and was taken down and awarded a penalty kick which she converted. The last goal came about from Kristin Miller winning a ball 25 yards out and heading it to Kelsey Haist who hit a nice low shot from 20 yards out. Miller and freshman Lexi Stagner shared the shutout which was Lexi’s first varsity minutes. The defense recorded their 5th straight shutout. Maddie Chandler, Abby Turnbull, Shelby Zielke, Brittany Kirkpatrick, and Anne Pierce are playing great so far.
