The Prairie City-Monroe boys soccer team posted two hat tricks in a 6-0 blowout of Chariton Thursday night to improve to 2-0 on the season.
Jamie Rea and Jamison Goodyk continued their strong starts to the season, as both recorded hat tricks in the Mustangs’ victory.
Interestingly enough, Rea’s hat trick came in the first half, while Goodyk’s was in the second. Goodyk also had assists on two of Rea’s goals, while Rea and Ethan Schippers each had an assist on Goodyk’s.
“Offense always gets the glory, but our defense continues to stay strong and posted another shutout,” PCM coach Darrin Telfer said. “Forwards and midfields are playing very unselfishly.”
The Mustangs will be off until next Thursday, when they will take on conference power Nevada in Monroe.
Although the team has had a nice start, the Cubs will provide the Mustangs with the first major challenge of the season when the two match up.
“We are preaching team, team, team, and so far the kids are buying in,” Telfer said. “Next week on Thursday, home against a rated Nevada team will be a huge challenge.”
