COLFAX — A 10-minute breakdown in the second half proved to be the difference in Prairie City-Monroe’s girls’ soccer match against Collins-Maxwell on Tuesday night.

The Mustangs and Spartans were scoreless at halftime, but visiting Collins-Maxwell (8-5) put in a pair of goals in a short amount of time and went on to win 3-0.

“We played a good first half,” PCM coach Rick Drabek said. “We had a breakdown in the second half that allowed them to get two goals. It was a very physical game and loosely called, but the girls fought hard and battled all the way until the end.”

The Mustangs (2-6-1) have two tough games to end the week. They play Class 1A No. 5 Gilbert at 7 p.m. on Thursday in Gilbert. PCM hosts 1A No. 7 North Polk at 5:30 p.m. on Friday.

“I look for the girls to fight hard in those matches so we can come back next week and finish strong in our three matches that week,” Drabek said.
