After a very abbreviated practice schedule and a few weather cancelations early in the season, the Prairie City-Monroe boys soccer team had to be feeling pretty good about being 2-0.
And although the Mustangs suffered their first loss on Tuesday, there should still be plenty to be excited about for the rest of the season.
PCM’s first loss came at the hands of Class 1A No. 6 Nevada on the road, with the final result of 4-0. The Cubs managed two goals in each half.
“Great effort by our guys, we just came up against a very good opponent that doesn’t make too many mistakes,” PCM coach Darrin Telfer said. “We put up a good fight, but in the end they were just too much. This was a good test for us, and pointed out a few things that we really need to work on as the season keeps going on.”
Through three games, the Mustangs are being led in goals by Lynnville-Sully imports Jamie Rea (five goals) and Jamison Goodyk (three). They are scheduled to continue their season tonight at Chariton, a team the Mustangs already defeated 6-0 last week in Monroe.
