Soccer team drops match to Durango

Preparing for spring break, the Pirates fell to 1-3 after a tough game in Durango against the Demons, losing 3-0 on Tuesday.

“It was a good game. Obviously, I think we could have played better,” said coach Lindsey Kurt-Mason.

Pointing out that the Pirates had defeated the Demons 1-0 earlier in the season during a scrimmage, Kurt-Mason said, “I just don’t know what happened. The girls went onto the field with the wrong attitude — that these guys were tough and we just couldn’t win against them.”

Playing a physical game with both teams tight on defense, the Demons capitalized on a corner kick to lead the half with a 1-0 advantage.

Although the Pirates created plenty of chances throughout the game, the offense couldn’t find their finish into the goal. The Demons, on the other hand, scored another goal from the top of the box and converted on another corner kick, taking the game with a 3-0 victory.

“Durango seemed to keep their composure and keep the ball longer,” said Kurt-Mason. “They were more organized on offense.”

Nicole Hunt had five shots on goal, followed by Sydney Smith with three. Goalie Alyssa Laydon logged nine saves.

With more than a week off, the Pirates host the Bayfield Wolverines Tuesday, April 12 at 4 p.m.
